Who We Are
As a parish of The Episcopal Church, our liturgy is based upon the Book of Common Prayer. The Holy Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is at the heart of our worship, and is ordinarily celebrated twice every Sunday morning. At each celebration we listen to readings from the Bible, hear a sermon proclaimed, and offer and receive the bread and wine. At the Sung Eucharist (usually at 10 a.m.), hymns and service music are sung by all, and the choir leads our praise and thanksgiving with anthems and psalms.
Children are an integral part of our worship and are welcome at every service. Childcare and Sunday Church School are available for children during the 10 o'clock service.
Other worship offerings at Christ Church include occasional Evensongs, seasonal services, and pastoral offices such as weddings and funerals.
