We are so glad that you are thinking about joining us for worship!
At this time we are offering three weekend worship services (see details below). Fr. Roger holds a 30-minute Morning Prayer is held on our Facebook page on Mondays thru Thursdays at 9:00am. To slow the spread of the Coronavirus, our Safety Ministry Team recommends, but does not mandate, the wearing of masks during the service for the safety of all who worship with us. Please click here for our schedule of online worship services and bible studies.
St. Andrew’s offers two opportunities for worship each weekend:
•The 5:30p.m. service on Saturday is a Rite II Eucharist held in-person;
•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, Facebook, and Zoom.
•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. During Covid, in-person parishioners come to the Priest at the center aisle to receive the host, 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 wine 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 only a blessing from the priest, please cross your arms over your chest before the host is given.
Fr. Roger offers drive-thru communion in our parking lot at the church entrance weekly on Sunday mornings from 12noon-12:30pm for those who worship online.
