About Worship

Worship is not an additive for an otherwise complete Christian life. It is the warp and woof of Christianity, and the chief work of God’s people. We assemble together on Sunday mornings because we believe God will do what God has promised. What has he promised to do in our worship? He calls us together promising to cleanse us from our sins, speak to us in his Word, hear our prayers and praises, feed us at his Table, and send us out into the world under his blessing. So we come together expectantly looking to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit to work on us and in us in order that we might work for him.

The earliest Christians believed that Jesus was crucified and died on what is now called Good Friday. Then by the greatest of all miracles, he came back to life on the first Easter. His resurrection meant for them the repair of a broken past, hope for the present, and the promise of eternal life together in the future. In solemn remembrance of Jesus’ death, and in joyful celebration of Jesus’ resurrection, they began a tradition of meeting each Sunday to worship him.

We are a liturgical church. Our worship services incorporate both ancient and modern music, language, and art. They include prayers, creeds, and scripture readings that have been used in the Church’s worship since its earliest days. Specifically, we worship in the Prayer Book tradition of the Anglican Church, which includes the sacraments (the Lord’s Supper and Baptism), singing (both hymns and praise songs) and the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All of these things free us to worship God with all that we are — our hearts, minds and bodies! Our printed worship guide helps you to follow along easily.

What to Expect on Sunday Mornings

Our services start on time, so you can plan to arrive several minutes early. One of our greeters can answer any questions you might have, and will give you a printed worship guide to help you easily follow along with the service. We invite you to stick around after the service for one of our favorite traditions- coffee and bagel time!

Children are always welcome in our worship services! They are not a distraction, but an important part of the church. We also have a variety of programs for children on Sunday morning. Learn more about our Children’s Ministry (click here)  for children birth through 5th grade. Our youth, 6th to 12th graders, worship with our congregation on Sunday morning, and our Youth Group meets on Sunday evenings. Learn more about our Youth Group (click here) .

*Things are a bit different in the summer: no preschool or elementary Sunday programming, and youth meetings are usually offsite and less often than during the school year.
