Sunday Worship

 

Our Sunday worship begins at 10:30am. Our liturgy is based on the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. We heavily emphasize the proclamation of the Gospel and coming to the Lord’s Supper for the Eucharist. Our worship is interactive, bathed in Scripture, and filled with the Holy Spirit.

We practice open Communion. If you have been baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and are unaware of any mortal (serious) unconfessed sin in your life, you are welcome to partake of Eucharist with us. If you have not been baptized, you’re still welcome to come visit!

If you would like to know more about what to expect in our liturgy, check out the e-book by Fr. Jim about The Divine Liturgy:

Anglicans observe the Christian Calendar, which is divided into 7 seasons:

  • Advent: A time of preparation for the celebration of Christ’s Incarnation.

  • Christmas: The celebration of Christ’s birth.

  • Epiphany: The celebration of Christ’s message of salvation for the whole world.

  • Lent: A time of confession and preparation for Easter which culminates in remembrance of Christ’s death on the cross on Good Friday.

  • Easter: The celebration of Christ’s resurrection.

  • Pentecost: The celebration of the Holy Spirit and the beginning of the Church.

  • Ordinary Time: A season to focus on Christian growth and ministry to the world.

We use the lectionary  provided by the Anglican Church in North America. A lectionary is a system of pre-planned readings (every Sunday includes passages from the Psalms, the Old Testament, the New Testament Epistles, and the Gospels) thematically arranged around the various seasons of the Church Calendar.

Tradition is important to Anglicans. We seek to be firmly planted within the deep stream of Church tradition established by Jesus and his Apostles. That doesn’t mean our services are dry and simply rote! Rather, the traditions allow us to dramatize the story of Christianity on a weekly basis while fellowshipping with other believers and encountering Christ in Communion.
