We are currently worshipping online via Zoom Online Meetings. We are also offering limited in-person worship; please reserve your place via our online reservation system.
We worship united by the Book of Common Prayer and scripture readings that let everyone follow along and join in! At any one time, we know that others around the world are doing the same. Join us for coffee and fellowship, too!
All Baptized Christians are invited to receive communion. Gluten-free wafers are available upon request. Please tell the server at Communion if you need a gluten free wafer.
Within this unity, we also honor difference through services from quiet contemplation, to full choir and hymns and praise songs, to a Spanish language service with mariachi musicians!
RITE I - Contemplative Eucharist in English, Sundays, 8:00 a.m.
The Rite I liturgies reflect the language and piety of the Elizabethan era and the first Book of Common Prayer, although the structure of these liturgies also reflects the influence of modern liturgical scholarship. Rite 1 is very similar to the 1928 Book of Common Prayer version, keeping the older English language (thee, thou, etc) with slight updates to the Creed and prayers.
Rite II - Holy Eucharist with a mix of choir, organ, and contemporary music, 9:30 AM online and 11:15 AM in person
The Rite 2 liturgies reflect more fully the influence of the liturgical movement and contemporary theology. Rite 2 liturgies tend to reflect greater sensitivity for inclusive language issues. The proper liturgies for special days (such as Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday), pastoral offices (such as the Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage), and Episcopal services (such as ordinations) are printed in contemporary language in the Book of Common Prayer.
We thank Trinity Episcopal Church in Troy, Ohio for their excellent descriptions of the Rite I and Rite II liturgies.
