What to Expect

There are two principle worship services on Sunday morning:

8 AM — Rite I, Spoken

10:30 AM — Rite II,  Spoken with Music; Nursery Available

Both services follow a basic order: we hear Scripture proclaimed, illuminated by a short sermon, pray, ask forgiveness for our sins, pass the peace to one another, and then receive Communion, which is also called the Eucharist or Lord’s Supper.

We have a casual but highly reverent understanding of our worship. We take seriously the meaning of what we are offering to God but are unbothered by crying babies or sensory seeker needs. You are welcome here. If you would like to talk with someone before your first visit, please contact us.

What to Wear

You’ll see a bit of everything around here. We want you to be comfortable focused on our worship together. Dress pants, jeans, dresses, shorts, suit jackets, and vests all turn up from time to time. We welcome you as you are.

What to Do

You’ll see some people cross themselves, some kneel, some genuflect, some bow. We want you to express your faith in the way that is the most authentic to who you are. The service bulletin has indications of when some people might make a gesture. You are welcome to. You are also welcome to observe or try something to see if it feels rights. If you have any questions about what people are doing in worship, please speak with one of our clergy following the service.

Children

Children are welcome in our services. As the future of our faith, we believe that children belong in the worshipping community helping us give honor and glory and praise to God. Children under three are welcome in our Nursery, which you can learn more about at the bottom of this page. You are also welcome to keep your children with you! Most families attend 10:30 AM on Sundays, but children are welcome at all services.

Outside the nave, where our Sunday worship takes place, you’ll see activity bags for children or for those with differences who might enjoy them. The bags are for use during the service to keep people engaged and connected to the larger work of prayer we are doing together.
