What are services like?
Each service has it's own unique flavor. If you are familiar with Roman Catholic or Lutheran services, you will find Episcopal services remarkably similar. The central rite is the Service of Holy Eucharist (also known as "Communion," or "The Lord's Supper"), analogous to the Roman Catholic Mass (and referred to as "Mass" by some Episcopalians). The first part of the liturgy ("The Liturgy of the Word") consists of prayers, scripture readings and a sermon or homily. This is followed an Affirmation of Faith (The Nicene Creed), the Prayers of the People, Confession of Sin, Absolution, and the Exchange of Peace. The second part of the liturgy ("The Liturgy of the Eucharist") begins with the offerings of the congregation, then proceeds with the Eucharistic Prayer, the Lord's Prayer, Consecration of the Elements (bread and wine), Communion, the Post-Communion Prayer, Blessing and Dismissal.
What is the community like?
Our church community is very diverse and very welcoming. We believe that Christ is the foundation of everything and He loves you, no exceptions. What you wear is entirely up to you. Many people like to dress up to go to church. This is more out of tradition than necessity. You will see people in dresses and suits, and you will see people in shorts and jeans. What is important is that we are all one in our church community. We are a judgement free zone.
What if I'm not a Christian?
That's okay. We invite you to visit and learn who we are.
