What to expect
Our faith is a living faith, and our church is a community, not an idea. We welcome you, with all your doubts, fears, joys and beliefs, to worship with us, pray with us, and sing with us at the table of the Lord.
The Episcopal service can be a bit intimidating to a newbie, so just relax, listen and watch. There is a lot of sitting, standing, singing, kneeling, praying, and reciting. You don’t have to do any of this. You have done the most important part and that is you are here.
Episcopalians strive to be present with the Lord at the services, in whatever form that takes for each individual. What you will notice most is that people are quiet both before and immediately after the service. We aren’t ignoring you or being unfriendly. To get to know us, hang around after the service for eats, coffee and conversation. (We always have food!)
Wear whatever is comfortable for you and join us either online or in-person. If you would like to receive our weekly newsletter, send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bishop Steven Charleston: “I have no prophecy beyond common sense. I have no insights better than experience. I am no more wise that the years I have lived. I am not holy by nature but by sacred discipline, working out my life one prayer at a time. We are all seekers, gifted in our own way, with our own impediments and challenges, our own blessings and bruises. We are each alone with the Spirit, being given the intimate access of grace, and at the same time in the midst of the family of all believers, living in communion as we fulfill our task of healing justice. We are not always right. We are far from perfect. We come as we are to the threshold of an eternal hope and none of us is turned away. Therefore, we are heralds of a joy that will not be contained: a promise made to us all by the One who loves us all.“
