What to Expect at Christ Episcopal Church
- Liturgical (we follow a written service). The Book of Common Prayer, 1979 is the basis of all of our worship even in our Contemporary Service.
- Scriptural (Bible readings are included)
- Participatory (the congregation reads and responds throughout the service)
Our Sunday Services
Holy Communion / Rite I
7:30 am in the Nave
The Rite I Holy Communion retains the beauty and dignity of the liturgical style and Elizabethan English found in earlier versions of the Prayer Book. This service is held in the Church and is ideal for those who enjoy quiet early worship without music.
Contemporary Service / Rite II
9:00 am in the Nave
This is our Holy Communion service with contemporary music and modern language. This is our largest service with children and adults of all ages. The first lesson from the Bible is told as a story rather than read. The entire service is projected using video technology so that everyone can follow along without having to use a Prayer Book or Hymnal. The music is easy to both sing and understands while reinforcing the message of worship. This is a great place for the children to learn about and experience “formal” worship as well as a wonderful place for adults to worship together with their children. The service is held year-round at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the Church.
Holy Communion / Rite II
11:00 am in the Nave
The 11:00 Holy Communion uses Rite II of the Book of Prayer Book, 1979. This service is a favorite of many longtime Episcopalians and is nearly as well attended as the Contemporary Service. This service features hymns and special music led by the Christ Church Choir with organ. Our organ is one of the finest in the nation and is a worthy accompaniment to the dignity and holiness of this service.
The Nursery is open from 8:45 a.m. until the conclusion of the 11:00 a.m. service. Our nursery is for infants through 3 years and includes babysitting as well as storytelling and snacks. The Nursery has pagers available to parents. Nursery staff will be able to contact you while you are in Church in the event you are needed. The Nursery is located in the Christian Education wing of the main campus.
