How We Worship

Worship is central to who we are as Christians. We find that when we gather for worship, our spirits are renewed. We offer prayer and praise and leave prepared to meet the week ahead. Worship at Christ Church is at once vibrant and contemplative: a combination liturgy taken from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, fused with contemporary and traditional styles. We strive toward creative and meaningful worship. Eucharist is a central part of worship for Episcopalians as a way to connect with God and each other. Holy Communion will be offered at in-person worship. To arrange for clergy or a lay eucharistic visitor to bring Holy Communion to you, please contact Rev. Shirley Smith Graham.

During worship we gather with others to hear music, learn from the scriptures, and respond to the scriptures in prayer. Worship in the Episcopal Church is based on the Book of Common Prayer, a liturgical book that provides a foundation for how we worship and helps guide our practice.

Music is an important part of worship at Christ Church. Blending traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs, we are blessed with a vibrant and accomplished music ministry that provides inspiration and reflection for the week ahead.

On special occassions, we may alter our worship schedule. Please check our calendar before visiting us. If you have any additional questions about worship at Christ Church, please do not hesitate to contact us.
