Our Services

What are services like?
Our 7:30 a.m. service on Sunday is entirely spoken, using the Rite I Liturgy with Holy Eucharist. Our 9 a.m. service is the most attended, especially with families, and is identical to our 11:15 a.m. service with Rite II Liturgy and Holy Eucharist. Communion is served at all services and ours is an open table. We believe the altar is not our table but God's table where everyone is welcome.

What is the community like?
We are diverse in age and backgrounds, with many young families attending up to senior citizens, and because of that, we offer many opportunities for multi-generational activities. We are very active in missions work, providing not only significant grant funding but also active participation and support of homeless shelters, nonprofit events, food pantries, and many other projects.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Anyone who walks through our doors is welcome, no matter where you are on your faith journey.
