Other Worship Opportunities
The Service of Evensong
Choral Evensong has been sung daily in the Anglican Church since the sixteenth century throughout the world. At Evensong, choral music and chant illuminates the biblical texts to allow a time of stillness, meditation, and prayer. This is offered occassionally throughout the year. See schedule.
The Service of Compline
A service chanted by candlelight offered a few times each year. See schedule.
Stemming from monastic practice, Compline is the last service of the day before bedtime. From the same root as the word “complete,” Compline in the strict sense marks the beginning of a time of silence—from the end of the service lasting until the morning. This brief and beautiful service is set in a darkened church and sung by a small men's choir. Please feel free to venture past the altar rail to the seats along the sides of the altar and the organ console, or wherever you feel most comfortable in the room. Remain as long as you wish after the service in this quiet space, departing in silence.
Worship in the Church & Chapel
To guide you through the service, we offer a Sunday Bulletin as well as an insert with the Bible readings selected for that day. Additionally, the red Book of Common Prayer (BCP), and the blue Hymnal for our music are located in the pews.
We stand to sing praises to God and greet one another. We sit for instruction, and kneel to confess our sins and for personal devotion. Many Episcopalians make the sign of the cross, bow, and observe other reverences, but they are not required of anyone. If you have any questions about the different reverences, please ask a member of our clergy!
All baptized Christians are welcome to receive communion in our church.
We hope you will feel at home as we worship God and receive life-giving sustenance from his Body and Blood at God's holy altar.
Modern Worship at The Table in Johnson Hall
At The Table in Johnson Hall, we follow the same order of worship – a call to worship, songs of praise, Scripture readings and a message, a time of prayer and confession, and the celebration of the Eucharist around a common table. We enter into God's presence and worship God through a variety of musical styles, led by our music team. We incorporate liturgical traditions from around the Anglican Communion, reminding us that we belong to a larger church family worshiping God across the world.
Our prayer is that The Table will provide an opportunity for us to deepen and broaden our relationship with Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us as we gather around the Table of our Lord.
