Worship

Our Services

Our regular service is one of Holy Eucharist. All persons without exception are invited to join us at God's Table. Children take communion as they express interest or when their parents believe they are ready. Bulletins containing our entire service are available from ushers as you enter Christ Church. Our services are typically about one hour long and are based on the Book of Common Prayer. These books and The Hymnal 1982 are stored in each pew.

Our Worship

If you are not familiar with Episcopal worship, please feel free to ask questions of those seated around you and to worship in a manner that is comfortable to you. Our normal practices are to stand for singing, the reading of the Holy Gospel and the recitation of the Nicene Creed. Most of us stand for prayer although others choose to kneel and this is a matter of personal preference. We do kneel (or sit) for the confession. You may receive communion either kneeling or standing. Other physical actions such as bowing or crossing oneself are personal aids to worship and acceptable within the congregation.

Our Newcomer's page and the national Episcopal Church Visitors' Center offer additional information.

If you would like to know more about these worship practices or sign-up to serve or read during worship, please speak with The Reverend Peter Faass, our Rector, or Lynn Winkelman, our Senior Warden.
