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!

Come and join us. We gather as an interfaith group of needle crafters to use our talents to stitch creations such as prayer shawls, scarves, hats, gloves, quilts, blankets, lap robes and more for people living in nursing homes, hospices, shelters or on the streets.
All Welcome! All the Time!
A center of the neighborhood
In last week's Lenten Study, we were urged to notice all the ways God's presence is shown. I think this poem addresses that.
Gerard Manley Hopkins, 1844 - 1889
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.
And for all this, nature is never spent;
There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs--
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.
Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do more than we can ask or imagine.
