Worship Services

Sundays

8:00 AM Holy Eucharist (Rite I): A quieter and more traditional service using the majestic and poetic language and cadences of Elizabethan English. This service includes music.

9:30 AM Holy Eucharist (Rite II and Enriching Our Worship): Often described as the Family Service, this service is an intergenerational service that makes a special effort to welcome and include children and youth. Children and youth are invited forward to stand at the altar during the Eucharistic Prayer and our slightly different service order allows children and youth to go to Sunday School during the recessional hymn while the adults stay to listen to the sermon. The two children’s choirs regularly participate at this service.

11:00 AM Holy Eucharist (Rite II): This service has a dignified solemnity. The Liturgical Choir sings at this service during most of the year. We use incense during part of the year. Some refer to this as the “smells and bells” service.

1:30 PM Spanish-language Eucharist (Rite II): At the Spanish language service, we celebrate the Eucharist every week in the primary language of many of our members. We make a special effort at this service to welcome children. After the opening hymn and prayers, the children hear a story, and then they go to Sunday School for music and crafts, returning for the Peace. During the Eucharistic Prayer, the children join us around the altar.

Also on Sundays

While all children are always welcome in our services, nursery care is available for our youngest members (3 months to 4 years old) from 9:00 until 11:00 AM.

Visit our Kids & Youth page for more information about all our programs for children and youth. 

Coffee Hour

Following each of the Sunday morning church services, everyone is welcome to gather for fellowship over coffee, tea, and snacks. Unless otherwise announced, coffee hour is in the Guild Room. 

Wednesdays

9:30 AM Holy Eucharist with healing and anointing in the chapel. This is a simple Rite II Eucharist that rarely incorporates music. At this service we commemorate the saints using Holy Women, Holy Men. 

Thursdays

8:00 AM Centering Prayer in the Guild Room (ring doorbell if you don’t have a key).  Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer.  We sit in a circle and the meditation begins with a recorded chant followed by 20 minutes sitting in silent prayer and concluding with recorded sacred music. Instructions in Centering Prayer are simple, so please join us even if you haven’t tried this method of prayer before.

Saturdays

1:30 PM on 3rd Saturdays Contemplative Prayer is a 90 minute meditation service. We rotate between sitting meditation and walking meditation, with one short teaching period.

5:00 PM Circle Eucharist: This is an alternative service based on community and a commitment to a vision of equals coming together to worship, pray and struggle with our faith. This service takes place in the Guild Room.
