Worship

 

Weekly Services (Fall, Winter, and Spring)

9:00 am and 11:00 am Holy Eucharist Rite II – The two services are designed for all ages and backgrounds.  We especially welcome the participation of younger members at 9:00 am and hope it is a meaningful time for them to learn and grow in their worship practice.

The 11:00 am service utlizes a traditional Rite II liturgy and includes our choir. Coffee hour and fellowship follow the service in the Parish Hall. a simplified liturgy that allows everyone to understand the most important elements of our service.
