We are so glad that you are thinking about joining us for worship!
At this time we are in transition in the search for a Priest. We still offer three weekend worship services (see details below). A team of parishioners hold a Morning Prayer weekly on Mondays at 9:00am at the church, and all are invited to attend. Our Safety Ministry Team suggests parishioners follow their comfort tolerance with wearing masks.
- St. Andrew’s offers three opportunities for worship each weekend:
•The 5:30p.m. service on Saturday is a Rite II Eucharist held in-person,
and celebrated by our Diocesan Bishop, Douglas Sparks;
•The 8:00 a.m. service on Sunday is a Rite I service held in-person;
• The 10a.m. service on Sunday is a Rite II service , with a choir and traditional hymns sung throughout the service. This service is both in-person and online on YouTube.
• Holy Eucharist is offered at each service weekly.
Don’t worry if you’ve never been to an Episcopal worship service. Printed worship bulletins include the entire service and the words and music for any hymns. This makes it easy for anyone to follow along with our worship. Also, don’t worry about what to wear. God looks at the interior of our heart, not the exterior of our clothing!
Receiving Communion at St. Andrew’s
Holy Communion is offered weekly at each of our weekend worship services and all baptized Christians are welcome, and encouraged, to receive communion. Parishioners receive the host at the altar, and then those who would also like to receive the wine may walk to the Clark Altar in the south cloister where the Lay Eucharistic Minister will offer the chalice or a small individual cup to you. If you desire to take only the bread (host), you may return to your pew after receiving it.
If you do not wish to receive any communion, but wish to receive a blessing from the priest, please cross your arms over your chest as you approach the Pastor.
