SERVICES & SERMONS

Young Child Friendly Service Service at 8:30 am

We gather for a Rite II Eucharist where all are always welcome.  Children join in the worship and will find activity boxes with art supplies and work sheets having to do with the day's themes.  Everyone gathers around the altar for the Eucharistic Prayer and Children of all ages take part in the final hymn by joining in with shakers and rhythm instruments.  At all of our services, dress tends to be pretty casual and we observe what some of our people call a relaxed reverence.  

Family Service at 10:30 am

At 10:30 children are always welcome.  Our service is from the Book of Common Prayer and we have a choir to support the music in worship.  As in all of our services, all are always welcome.  

5:30 pm Celtic Service

Our Sunday evening service draws on our Celtic Christian roots, with an emphasis on God's presence in all of creation, especially in the natural world and in humanity.  Our evening band blends keyboards, woodwinds and guitar to provide meditative music for contemplation and reflection throughout the service.  

 
Sermons

Sermon for the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost

After visiting the site of Aidan's island monastery on Lindisfarne this summer, I found myself with a new understanding of what it might mean to be invited to the seat of honor by the host who calls us to come up higher.
