Sunday Morning

When We Worship

Join Us For In-Person Worship!!

SUNDAYS @ 10:30 a.m.

 The worship of God in Christ is what binds us together as a community of faith. As members of Christ Church, we have different interests, callings, and commitments, different ministries in the church and in the world.

The one time we come together under one roof is when we gather for worship. We bring all that we are and all that we care about as our offering to God, believing that God will receive us and challenge us, bless us and strengthen us, and return us to the world in love and service.

10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist* (Rite II)

A full service with music, child care available

*What does this word “Eucharist” mean? Literally, it means “thanksgiving.” It’s the word we use to describe what we do on Sunday mornings (and at other times, too) when we share not only scripture, prayers, and hymns, but also the blessed bread and wine of Holy Communion.

Faithfully yours,

Worship and Sacraments

Baptism

Baptism is the way we become members of the Church. At Christ Church, we baptize both infants and adults on several special days throughout the year. Baptismal Days include the Sunday of the Baptism of our Lord, The Easter Vigil, Pentecost Sunday, All Saint’s Day, and during the Bishop’s Visitation. For more information on baptism for you or your child, please contact our rector.

Funerals

A death in the family should be reported to the parish office as soon as possible. Clergy are available to advise survivors on funeral/memorial service plans and to officiate at services. Baptized Christians are properly buried from the church. For more information please contact our rector.

Weddings

The wedding of a member of Christ Church is a joyous occasion in the parish community. To arrange for premarital counseling and schedule your wedding, please contact our rector.

Holy Eucharist and ceremony of washing of feet follows the gospel and homily. The service concludes with the stripping of the altar and removal of all decorative furnishings from the church in preparation for Good Friday.

We commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus. The liturgy includes John’s account of the Passion gospel, and devotions before the cross (commonly known as the Veneration of the Cross). Our Nursery will be open for babies and toddler during this service.

Following our service, we invite everyone to bring a bag picnic lunch (and a lawn chair), and join us in Highland Park. After lunch, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt. (rain plan: we’ll gather in the Hopkins Family Center, on the lower level of the church)

Easter Vigil & Baptism, Saturday, March 30 at 8:00 PM

The liturgy intended as the first (and arguably, the primary) celebration of Easter. Service begins in darkness, sometime between sunset on Holy Saturday and sunrise on Easter, and consists of four parts:

  1. The Service of Light (kindling of new fire, lighting the Paschal candle, the Exsultet)
  2. The Service of Lessons (readings from the Hebrew Scriptures interspersed with psalms, canticles, and prayers)
  3. Christian Initiation (Holy Baptism) or the Renewal of Baptismal Vows
  4. And the Eucharist

Bring a bell or whistle to ring for Holy Noise as we proclaim, “Alleluia! Christ is risen!”
