We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30AM in our historic church building, and we’d love to have you join us. We know it’s not always easy to walk into a new church; here are some frequently asked questions you might be wondering about.
Will I be welcome?
Yes! We enthusiastically welcome all God’s children, just the way God made them.
What is the service like?
Most Sundays we celebrate Holy Eucharist (Communion), with organ, hymns, readings from scripture, a homily, and prayers. Our liturgy is drawn from the Book of Common Prayer and other resources approved by the Episcopal Church. The service lasts about an hour, and is usually followed by a time of fellowship over coffee and snacks in the parish hall.
What should I wear?
Whatever you find comfortable. You may see folks dressed in anything from overalls to jacket and tie.
Do you take an offering?
We do pass the plate for an offering before Communion, and you are welcome to make a contribution if you feel moved to do so. Any gift you make will be gratefully received and put to use in support of our mission and ministry. As a visitor, your presence among us is gift enough for us.
May I come up for Communion?
We welcome all baptized Christians to this meal of life. If you wish to have a blessing from the priest instead of Communion, you may cross your arms over your chest when the minister comes with the bread. If you do not want to take the wine, you may bow or cross your arms over your chest when the minister presents the cup to you.
What about the children?
All infants, children, and youth are welcome to attend the worship service in the church. Their sounds are a “joyful noise unto the Lord”. We have some crayons and books in the back of the church. We also have a nursery with toys, books, and a crib in the parish hall. We do not have regular staff for the nursery.
Do you offer online worship?
We offer our worship service as a Zoom meeting.

The Parish Hall
The main (upper) level of the parish hall is wheelchair-accessible via a ramp on the side of the building. There is an accessible unisex restroom on the upper level. Additional restrooms are located on the lower level.
