Our Services

What are services like?
Episcopal worship has a routine. We begin with music and an opening prayer. We listen to readings from the scripture. One of our Pastors will give a message that connects the scripture to our life. We stand together and recite our statement of faith. Our Deacon leads us in prayers of healing and thanksgiving and we recite together our confession. We give an offering. Our Pastor leads us in what we call the Eucharistic Prayer and then we all receive Holy Communion. The service concludes with a final prayer, blessing, and a dismissal from our Deacon to "Go into the world and serve!" Don't worry. You will know the routine of the service within a few weeks.
