Our worship practice is best described by the word celebration. We celebrate God whose glory is reflected in all of creation through our lives and in our worship. Our diverse and creative worship life emphasizes how we can bless and be a blessing to others and flows from the communion table to our many other communal feasts.

Sundays, 9:00 a.m. -- Rite II Holy Eucharist, with music, processions and acolytes. This is a more traditional service, using mostly text from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer and some hymns from the 1982 Hymnal. The seating arrangement is also traditional. Child care provided during the service and the education & fellowship time afterward
Sundays, 11:00 a.m. – Celtic Eucharist. This is a contemporary service, celebrated in the round in the nave and chancel of the church. The service follows an Order for Eucharist as outlined in the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. Some services are celebratory and others are of a more contemplative nature. Services are participatory, and include communal discussion of the readings. We sing and enjoy excellent instrumental music by our keyboardist, Janet Dodd. For more information, please see our Celtic Celebrations page. Child care provided during the service and the fellowship time afterward.
As announced, monthly, 7:00 p.m. – Celtic Celebrations
Please see our Celtic celebrations page for more information.
We welcome children into the liturgy and encourage families to worship together. Families with young children are invited to use the chapel if they would like more space for their children. Nursery care for infants and toddlers is available.
Holy Communion is served in two places. You may receive communion kneeling or standing at the altar rail, or standing at the station in front of the baptismal font. If you are unable to come to the standing station at the font, the sacraments can be brought to you in your pew. At the Celtic celebrations, communion is brought to you at your place in the circle of gathered community.
