Worship

We are called to “worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness,” Psalm 96:9. Our worship combines a blend of the rich traditional liturgy of the Episcopal faith along with contemporary music and praise.


We have three Sunday Morning services:

8:00 a.m. • Rite 1, Reflective worship music

9:30 a.m. • Modified liturgy in a casual environment for young families to worship together.

10:30 a.m. • Rite 2, Modern worship music

Being a disciple is simply being a follower.

For a Christian, this means we are a disciple when we follow Jesus Christ. He has a heart for the lost, last, least, and lonely. When we follow Jesus, our heart begins to change to have the same concern.


The process of growing into this lifestyle is called discipleship.

It is simply a matter of being willing to continue following him through worship, prayer, the reading of God’s Word, fellowship, and other spiritual practices.

Nursery (six weeks - pre-kindergarten)

Our nursery is open on Sundays from 7:45 a.m. to noon for children six weeks old through pre-kindergarten and is professionally staffed by a group of warm and dedicated adults. Through age-appropriate activities, we are building our preschooler's spiritual foundation with games, crafts, and Bible experiences. Our entire curriculum is constructed to meet your preschooler(s) where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and socially. When you arrive at our nursery area, your child will check in to their age-based room (babies, toddlers, preschoolers) for the day’s lectionary-based lesson as well as plenty of time to play and socialize with their friends. We also have a nursing room off the nursery foyer available during all services.
