The traditional service language in the Chapel includes hymns with organ accompaniment. Because of the smaller space, it has an intimate feel. This service lasts approximately one hour.
Awesome Worship is designed for families of children ages 3 through 3rd grade. The children are encouraged to participate in worship. The music has an energetic, contemporary guitar-driven band, and songs are taught with hand motions. Children, parents, and grandparents participate in praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. The message and Communion service are geared for the entire family while being developmentally appropriate for younger children. Immediately following the service, children are dismissed to their Sunday school classes.
Using contemporary language from the Book of Common Prayer, this service welcomes families while providing a high sense of liturgical beauty and holiness.
Guitar-driven music leads the worship for this service. The music is grounded in the history of the Church across the ages. Our band is equally adept at leading ancient hymns as well as modern worship songs. Worshipers in our Contemporary Service experience the beauty and breadth of Anglican liturgy. Prayer ministers are available for you during Holy Communion. The Contemporary Service brings the Word of God into our increasingly visually oriented culture by using screens instead of songbooks. Dramas, visual arts, and clips from movies and television are occasionally incorporated in the worship service. While the service is distinctly Anglican, the worship style is attractive to those who are familiar with modern evangelical worship.
This service uses traditional Prayer Book language and features more choral offerings. The service appeals to those who enjoy historic Anglican worship. While families with children often attend this service, it tends to be a more adult congregation.
This time is designated for praying specifically for one's own physical, spiritual or emotional healing, or for the healing of others. The worshiper has the opportunity to lift up to God the names of loved ones in prayer and also to kneel at the communion rail for individualized prayer with the priest or a prayer minister. This service immediately precedes a service of Holy Communion.
We are blessed with a rich and vibrant heritage that can allow us to experience God more deeply as we gather at his altar. This service offers a mix of Rite Two and Rite One services. We occasionally offer additional gifts of music with harpsichord, trombone, oboe, handbells, and choir offerings.
