At the heart of our church life is the beautiful worship tradition of the Episcopal Church, as part of the world-wide Anglican communion. In-person Sunday worship services are held at 10:00 a.m. We hope that you will be fed, nurtured, and sustained by our liturgy.
Join us at 10:00 a.m. Sundays for celebration of the Holy Eucharist. We have resumed in-person worship services in our sanctuary. Masks are required and only Communion wafers are currently distributed. Children's Chapel is available for children in preschool through grade 5. Nursery is also available for children aged 6 months to 4 years old.
The Episcopal Church is sometimes called a “bridge” church, because of our strong affinities with both Roman Catholic and other Protestant churches and our respect for all faith traditions. Our worship consists of music, prayers, readings from Scripture, and a sermon, followed by what we call the celebration of Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion, a sacred act of remembering and reliving Jesus’ last meal with his disciples. All who seek Christ are welcome to receive Holy Communion.
Our worship is traditional in many ways and quite innovative in others. It is that combination of tradition and innovation that gives the Episcopal Church its distinct feel.
Services are currently held at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday, featuring celebration of the Holy Eucharist, a sermon and music by our Adult Choir.
During the 10:00 a.m. service, we offer nursery care for children aged 6 months to 4 years with silent pagers available. Children’s Chapel is available during the 10:00 a.m. service for children in pre-school through fifth grade. The services use music and a storytelling format to communicate the same lesson as the adult sermon. Children join their parents upstairs at the Peace.
Assisted listening devices are available if needed. Please speak with an usher if you have any special needs.
Christ Church has a rich musical tradition of choral music and congregational music. Hymns and Service Music are chosen from Hymnal 1982 as well as from Wonder Love and Praise and LEVAS hymnals. Choral anthems, sung by our Adult Choir and Children's Chorister Choir are drawn from a wide traditional repertoire from England and America, both historical and modern compositions.
Lay Participation in Worship
The laity participates in leading worship. At the Sunday Eucharist, members serve as lectors for the reading of the lessons. Laity also serve as Acolytes, Lectors, Ushers, and, once the COVID pandemic is behind us, will once again serve as Lay Eucharistic Ministers.
