Sunday Morning Schedule
Children are always welcome to worship with their parents/guardians
at any of our worship services.
8:00 AM Early Worship Service
Traditional Spoken Holy Communion with Sermon.
9:15 – 10:15 AM Adult Bible Study
Please join us in the Parish Hall as we discuss the scripture lessons assigned for worship each week. Discussions are facilitated by our Scholar-in- Residence,
Paul Stevenson, Ph.D. Biblical Languages and Linguistics.
10:15 AM Sunday School
Starting on Sunday, September 20, we plan to offer Sunday School Classes in the Parish Hall for children in K – 6th Grades. “Seasons of the Spirit” is our curriculum and it is based on the weekly scripture readings we use for worship. Our teaching model is the One Room School House approach. The safety of children is our first priority. All clergy, paid staff and volunteers ministering with children complete the Safe Church Training required by the National Episcopal Church. Children will be escorted to church at about 11:00 AM to worship with their parents/guardians. They will hear a Children’s Message from Fr. Dan and are welcome to receive Holy Communion or a blessing.
10:30 AM Family Worship Service
Contemporary Language Family Worship includes Sermon, Children’s Message, Holy Communion, Hymns, Service Music, and Musical Offerings by our Choir and Organist. Children are brought into the church for the Children’s Message and Communion. Parents may choose to take advantage of the comfortable space provided in the back of the church for nursing mothers and parents with very small children. Age appropriate toys and books are also available.
11:30 AM Fellowship
Everyone is invited to join us in the Parish Hall following worship for
Fellowship, Food and Hot and Cold Beverages.
