We are so pleased you have found us.
We have three services each Sunday:
- 8am - Holy Eucharist, Rite I, with organ and hymns
- 10am - Holy Eucharist, Rite II with choir, nursery care and church school
- 10am - Rite Now (in Reynolds Hall), an informal Eucharist
We are located just north of downtown on Concord Street (U.S. 202).
Every Sunday we start with a traditional service at 8am that offers Scripture readings, a sermon and a quiet, reflective Eucharistic experience. Breakfast is shared after the service in the Parlor. First time visitors may also like to start with the 10am service that includes a volunteer choir and a coffee hour after when you can meet others from both Rite II and Rite Now services. If you are looking for a more contemporary service, Rite Now meets in Reynolds Hall at 10 and offers scripture readings and a discussion in lieu of a sermon, followed by a Eucharist. After visiting all of our services, you may find the service you prefer. When you come in, please sit wherever you like. Look for people wearing a flower or leaf pinned to their lapel- these are greeters and can answer any questions you may have.
A pamphlet or bulletin, available at the door, will tell you what comes next during church.
Each chair has two books - the black one, referred to as our Book of Common Prayer, has standard texts and prayers and the bulletin you are given at the door will tell you which page to turn to and when. The red one, our Hymnal, includes all hymns and chants we use in the service. We stand as able during prayers and hymns, and take communion at the front. All are welcome at communion - no credentials required. You are also welcome to stay in your seat during communion, or to come to the railing with your arms across your chest to receive a blessing. If you wish, we also have volunteers who offer healing prayers on the right hand side of the church in our chapel during communion.
Episcopal churches tend to have strong music programs.
We are fortunate to have a fine Austin organ and an excellent organist and choirmaster who leads our wonderful choir. Our music both reflects our Anglican heritage and embraces a wide range of musical styles from early music to the works of living 21st century composers,
If you have a difficult time hearing, devices are available at the back of the church to assist you.
Sunday School and Nursery Care
Adjacent buildings on campus offer meeting space to many groups, and house our Sunday School classrooms, a strong youth program, and child care during church. Come in to look and ask anyone to show you around. We'll be glad to see you!
