Church of the Resurrection Welcomes You
I was glad when they said to me,“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
Our Sunday Services are 8:00 am (no music) and 10:15 am (music, choir (Sept through June), childcare, church school through 5th grade, Bagels and Bibles for middle and high school).
For dress, wear what is comfortable, whether it be suit and tie or dress, t-shirt and shorts, hoodie and jeans — most of our congregation lands somewhere in the middle.
Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion is held at both the 8:00 am and 10:15 am Sunday services. Everyone is welcome at our altar. We do serve both wine and grape juice, as well as gluten free bread, during communion.
Church of the Resurrection is an Episcopal Church and our services draw the Book of Common Prayer, as well as other liturgies from around the Anglican Communion. We do provide a service leaflet containing everything you need for the service.
The 8:00 am service lasts about 45 minutes with a coffee hour generally held in our kitchen. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet members of the congregation. The 10:15 am service lasts around an hour and fifteen minutes and it is also followed by a coffee hour in our Parish Hall or, weather permitting, on our patio. Again, this is a wonderful opportunity for fellowship.
Many children are in church school during the first half of the 10:15 am service and join their family with the congregation during the Peace and remain with their families for communion and the rest of the service. That said, children are most welcome to stay in the sanctuary for the entirety of the service, and some families choose to spend the whole service together this way.
There is a sermon at both Sunday services and the sermons generally last between 10 and 15 minutes.
