What to Expect at Your First Service

Worship in the Episcopal Church is said to be “liturgical,” meaning that the congregation follows service forms and prays from texts that don’t change greatly from week to week during a season of the year. This sameness from week to week gives worship a rhythm that becomes comforting and familiar to the worshipers.

All worship in the Episcopal Church is based in the Book of Common Prayer, which gives worship a familiar feel, no matter where you go. We sing both traditional  and contemporary hymns, and receive the Holy Eucharist

For the first-time visitor, liturgy may be exhilarating… or confusing. Services may involve standing, sitting, kneeling, sung or spoken responses, and other participatory elements that may provide a challenge for the first-time visitor.

However, liturgical worship can be compared with a dance: once you learn the steps, you come to appreciate the rhythm, and it becomes satisfying to dance, again and again, as the music changes.

We invite you to join us upstairs for Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall following the one-hour service on Sundays.

Holy Eucharist

We offer Communion in the form of red wine and wafers every  Sunday & Wednesday.

01

The Call

The priest stands at the table, which has been set with a cup of wine and a plate of bread or wafers, raises his or her hands, and greets the congregation again, saying “The Lord be With You.”

02

The Prayer & Story

Now begins the Eucharistic Prayer, in which the presider tells the story of our faith, from the beginning of Creation, through the choosing of Israel to be God’s people, through our continual turning away from God, and God’s calling us to return.

Finally, the presider tells the story of the coming of Jesus Christ, and about the night before his death, on which he instituted the Eucharistic meal (communion) as a continual remembrance of him.

03

The Blessing of the Bread & Wine

The presider blesses the bread and wine, and the congregation recites the Lord’s Prayer. Finally, the presider breaks the bread and offers it to the congregation, as the “gifts of God for the People of God."

04

The Sharing of the Bread & Wine

The congregation then shares the consecrated bread and the wine. The people all come forward, one row at a time, led by our Deacon, to receive the bread and wine. The Communion may be brought to those with mobility impairments and gluten-free wafers are available.

Coffee Cups

Coffee Hour

After each one-hour Sunday service, our congregation communes upstairs in the Parish Hall for coffee, tea, and pastries.

This is a great opportunity to mingle with other members, ask questions, or sometimes, listen to a community leader speak on a project or organization.
