“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before God with joyful songs.” – Psalm 100:
Worship at Christ Church creates a joyful space where we can encounter the presence of God – whether we are worshipping in the beauty of our historic church, or at home on Zoom or Facebook Live. Through songs and readings, sermons and prayers, we celebrate the great story of God’s amazing love. At the heart of that story is mystery, so we leave room for that too, most especially in the sacrament of Holy Eucharist (also called Communion), where we are made whole again as the body of Christ. Like a good restaurant, our “menu” features different flavors, styles and priorities – all of them are centered on the Good News of our belovedness in Christ.

What to Expect in Worship at Christ Church
Expect to be accepted as you are – there is no dress code. Our worship follows the pattern in the Book of Common Prayer, which is the prayer book of the Episcopal Church. We sing, pray, listen, move; we stand, sit or kneel, depending on the part of the service – feel free to do what is comfortable for you. Everything you need to know for worship is provided on the screens in the church or printed in the worship bulletin each week (that is available online). some of the worshippers are there in person, some on Zoom; all are worshipping together. Our worship music is a mix of traditional hymns and more contemporary church music.
COVID Safety Protocols:
- If you have a cold or feel ill, and/or are unvaccinated, please wear a mask and socially distance;
- If you have a cold or feel ill, wear a mask when singing – singing is a very “broad-cast-y” activity
- We are paper-less – you can print out the bulletin (see link above), or access it on a hand-held device Sunday.
- If you’ve been ill or traveling, worship from home.
