The Great Vigil, the Easter Vigil is to celebrate the solemnity of being in darkness and the mystery, surprise and tremendous joy of the first sighting of the resurrection of Jesus Christ as we decorate the altar. This service in its full version lasts over 3 hours; we offer a shortened version of this celebration. Although we have no one getting baptized this year at this service, it is a favorite service to baptize or confirm someone.
Worship With Us
Each Sunday at 10 AM we gather to listen to the words of the Bible, including readings from the Old Testament and New Testament. Our preacher uses one of the texts for a sermon to guide our understanding, to encourage our faith, and to move us from faith to action. The framework for our worship is presented in the Book of Common Prayer. The hymns we sing together are mostly found in The Hymnal 1982, of the Episcopal Church. We follow Rite II for most services, and during the summer we add an 8:00 AM service without music, using the the Book of Common Prayer.
Sundays at 8:00 AM Holy Eucharist from the Book of Common Prayer, without music.
Sundays at 10:00 AM Holy Eucharist-Rite II Book of Common Prayer, with sung liturgy and hymns.
