Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
Traditional Episcopal worship has lots of music, scripture, prayer and reflection. We draw liturgy and music from around the globe.
During the summer months, when life is less structured, the questions and wiggles of little ones bring life to the mix in the activities corner during service.
ALL are welcome!
Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
worship.together is a brief, participatory service for families with young children. Specifically designed with 0-5 year-olds in mind, this half-hour service helps engage children in story, song and prayer while helping to develop their sense of God. The service includes singing, a gospel story, liturgy, interactive prayers, and communion. Children (and parents/caregivers!) are invited to sit on the floor to experience the service firsthand, and participate in many aspects of the service by carrying the processional cross, assisting with serving communion, and offering their own prayers of intercession. Happy chatter and joyful wiggles are most welcome!

A center of the neighborhood
In Lent, we examine ourselves, where we are in our relationship with God, and others. And somewhere in that journey comes the question of faith. Faith is not belief, for belief is a set of ideas to which we willingly subscribe.
Faith, says Franciscan Richard Rohr, "faith is a generous balancing act between knowing and not knowing."
Knowing our weaknesses, believing we are in need of change, the next step is to know we cannot of ourselves engineer that change. We can take particular steps that seem right to us, but in all areas of our lives at the core of change is how we see ourselves in relationship to our God.
Our faith depends on our willingness to hold loosely what we find in ourselves - our world - and the hope and light we reach for in our yearning to know God. Let us this Lent know this time to be a blessed opportunity to experience finding our balance, rest into it being not either/or but both.
Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do more than we can ask or imagine.
