The public worship of the Episcopal Church centers on the Holy Eucharist – the service of Holy Communion.  Eucharist means “thanksgiving” and each week we give thanks and praise to God through listening to God’s Word and participating in the sacrament of Holy Communion.  In this community worship we find forgiveness, grace, healing, renewal, and strength for the journey.  All are welcome here at God’s table.

Sunday Worship Times

8am Holy Eucharist. This is a quiet service with no music.  Our liturgy alternates weekly between Rite 1 and Rite 2.  Coffee and fellowship follow.

10:00am Holy Eucharist. This is our primary service, with music and Rite 2 (modern language) liturgy.  This service is family oriented and children are always welcome.  Coffee and fellowship follow.

We believe that children are a vital part of our worshiping community. We have a nursery for your convenience, but your children are always encouraged to participate and welcomed in church. If you wish childcare, simply speak with the priest before services and he will arrange it for you.

Other Worship Opportunities

Every first Friday of the month, we have a Healing Service with Holy Eucharist at noon.

Occasional Taize Worship Services are scheduled irregularly throughout the year. Please check our calendar for upcoming special services.
