WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU COME FOR WORSHIP AT CHRIST CHURCH

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. 

We are committed to doing our part to keep our community healthy and safe. Click here for information on gathering in the time of coronavirus.

Eucharist is a central part of worship for Episcopalians as a way to connect with God and each other. As we break bread, our eyes are opened to the presence of Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are made one body, the body of Christ sent forth to live the Way of Love. 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.

At Christ Church, we welcome people of all ages and abilities. We invite you to bring your whole selves to worship. Our Family Worship service at 9 AM particularly invites movement, sound, and active participation. Wiggles are welcome! Nursery Care is avaialbe Sundays at 9 AM and a Family Room is available at both servies for rocking, nursing, or just taking a little break.

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. You are always welcome here!
