The purpose of our worship is to praise and glorify God, and to receive and renew faith in Jesus Christ. We gather, we pray, we sing, we confess our sins and rejoice in God’s forgiveness. We hear readings from the Bible, and a sermon, followed by the Creed. Then we celebrate Communion together, and we close with a charge to go out into the world to love and serve the Lord. Every Sunday we offer a time of coffee and conversation in the Gathering Place following the service. We also move around a lot during worship, and our worship is participatory. The acolytes, lay ministers, and clergy process behind the cross. Bowing, making the sign of the cross, and even the positioning of certain elements of the service are of high significance. These communicate to us the centrality of the Gospel in our parish life. The action itself has meaning. And while the movement always conveys the meaning, it also is a message.
Do you have a Children's Ministry?
Since Anglican worship is largely experiential, people of all ages can participate. Children's programs on Sunday mornings (for nursery through 5th grade) are availalbe during the 10:30 am service. Click here to learn more about our children's ministry.
Seasons of the Church Year
Anglican worship continues the ancient tradition of a Christian Year: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week and Easter, and then the Sundays after the Trinity. Following the Church calendar helps us plan ahead, keeps us focused on the Gospel, and shapes our themes and emphasis throughout the year.
