Worship nourishes and renews us for our Christian journey.
Our primary time of community worship is Sunday mornings at 10am and includes Holy Eucharist. The Sunday worship time is available in person and on Zoom. Please scroll down for the event listing for the upcoming Sunday.
We also offer a late evening worship service on Zoom only every Thursday at 8:30pm. Called Compline after the last time of prayer before bed in traditional religious orders, our version is simple, under-30 minutes, and includes a time of musical reflection.
We worship within the Anglican tradition, using words that have been carefully crafted in advance and are provided for worshippers to follow along. We encourage the level of participation that feels right for each person -- some days just sitting and listening is enough. We try to use expansive language for God, although we lean traditional (you'll hear God called Father pretty regularly in our worship, but you'll also hear female imagery and imagery that doesn't rely on gender). The space and structure of the liturgy can feel very formal, but we are not rigid about it. Often it is in what we think is a "mistake" that the Holy Spirit speaks most loudly.
Our worship usually includes hearing from the Bible and a chance to reflect on what we have heard. Most often the reflection is offered as a sermon or homily. We also include an opportunity to name silently or aloud people, places, and events for which we want to pray. On Sundays, we sing a mix of traditional hymns and more contemporary praise music.
Children are always welcome in worship. Most Sundays, we offer a time for children to hear stories from the Bible and reflect together in age-appropriate ways. This time is led by trained and screened volunteers and guardians are welcome to join children as needed. There is generally a collection of toys and a rug available in the Fellowship Room for families who need some space to move around during worship.
