Sunday Services

Each Sunday, we gather weekly in observance of the command to keep the Sabbath holy and to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This means each Sunday is full of rich biblical imagery and ritual – Christ is proclaimed as risen from the dead, and all creation now finds rest and communion in God. The Lord’s Supper, also known as Holy Communion, Holy Eucharist, or the Divine Liturgy, is the focal point for proclaiming the Good News of the risen Christ.

We offer two services of worship on Sunday: 8:30am and 10:30am. At our 8:30 service, the piano is our primary musical instrument, and we offer music and singing that has a modern tempo, sound and style. At 10:30, the organ is our primary instrument, and led by our choir, our music and singing is classical and elaborate, as we utilize chant in our prayers and select hymns deeper from within the treasury of Christian hymnody.  Please check our website calendar regularly to note the changes in worship times for all worship services.

Wednesday Services

Every Wednesday we gather for communal prayer and another opportunity for receiving the Lord’s Supper. Our prayer services are the offices, or orders, of the Daily Prayer of the Church, a pattern of communal prayer that has existed for centuries. Matins, or Morning Prayer, is offered at 7:00am; Vespers, or Evening Prayer, is offered at 5:30pm. These prayer services last approximately 15-20 minutes and are non-musical. These services employ peacefulness, silence and solemnity, which are meant to help us focus on listening to God and refresh us to serve in a very busy world. (Note: the service times are subject to change depending on the liturgical season. Please check our website calendar regularly to note any changes in the times of prayer and worship.)

At 12:15pm, we offer The Divine Service. This service is patterned after the mass crafted by Martin Luther during the liturgical reforms of the 16th century. It is a beautiful and simple service, non-musical, and we often use this service to celebrate holy days and commemorations that may occur during the week. This service lasts approximately 45 minutes.

Special Services

Depending on the liturgical season and on the major festivals of Christmas, Holy Week, and Easter, our schedule intensifies with many additional opportunities for worship and prayer. Also, each 5th Sunday of the secular calendar year, we gather for one worship service at 9:30am, unless otherwise noted on our website calendar. These 5th Sundays are intended as a time to foster unity and fellowship among our membership. Please check our website calendar regularly to note the times for all these special services.
