Our Services

What are services like?
A mix of traditional (liturgical), yet contemporary. Rite II is used. The basic order of our worship: The ministers, choir, acolytes, and chalice bearers all process in. Then there are readings from the New Testament, Psalms, Epistles, then Gospel; after which the priest gives a sermon. After the sermon, we have the Nicene Creed, Prayers of the People, Celebrations & Thanksgivings, and the Peace. After the Peace, we have the eucharistic prayer, Lord's Prayer, and then receive the eucharist (Communion). After Communion, we have a post-communion prayer, announcements, a blessing, and then the recession.

What is the community like?
We are very welcoming and warm. We have people who've been here 60 years, all the way to 6 days. Many of our congregants grew up in many different traditions (Catholic, Methodist, Evangelical, Baptist, Lutheran), but by the grace of God, ended up here.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We still welcome you!
