Each Sunday we gather for traditional worship at 10 a.m. for The Holy Eucharist, Rite II and at 5:30 p.m. for an expressive worship service, holding to the liturgical roots of Episcopal and Anglican Worship. The fifth Sunday of the month is designated as Service Sunday, which involves some members going out to serve our local community while others stay at the church for worship and to pray for those out serving. On Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. we have Holy Eucharist Rite II with prayers for healing in the Chapel of St. Michael.
Serve in Worship
Assist the Rector and serve the congregation during the liturgical service by performing specific duties during the service such as carrying the cross in procession and serving at the alter. Any young person may become an acolyte!
Prepares the Sanctuary for all worship services, cares for sacred vessels and linens used in the service, maintains ample altar supplies and decorates the church for special services.
First and foremost- everyone is a greeter because everyone should feel welcome when walking into our sacred space! Greeters welcome visitors and ensure any questions they may have and point them to many of the church resources they may need.
Lectors read the daily lessons during the Sunday 10 a.m. Service. Readings consist of readings from the Old and New Testament.
Eucharistic Ministers assist ordained clergy in the celebration of the Eucharist during communion.
Ushers welcome church members and newcomers attending services, assist people in finding their seats and performing liturgy-related services such as passing the collection plates, bringing forward the wine and water to the alter, and directing people to the alter for communion. They also see that Service Bulletins, Prayer Books and Hymnals are distributed.
They get the coffee brewing on Sunday mornings! Coffee hosts volunteer once a month to put out coffee as well as snacks for the congregation after church service.
