About the Liturgy
Thank you for visiting today. This is designed to give you a brief introduction to our life and faith and to tell you a little about who we are. The Episcopal Church is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, with 70 million members in 163 countries. We are a community of Christians bound together by our belief that Holy Scripture contains the very core of all Christian faith. Through the many ancient, as well as modern, stories that connect us to Jesus and his teachings, we discover daily God’s hope and call to us in our life together. We live out these core beliefs through:
- Worship and church programs
- Reaching out to the community
- Sharing our story with others
- Seeking God’s love together in study and prayer
- Giving of our means and talents to the greater purpose of God’s work
Celebrating God’s Presence
In our worship service, we celebrate God with us through water, bread and wine. Our Lord Jesus Christ tells us through water we are united with God. We call this Baptism. The Episcopal Church believes through baptism in any Christian denomination we become brothers and sisters in God’s family. (If you are not baptized and wish to be, you may contact the church office for more information) Jesus shared bread and wine with his first followers and is with us today in this family meal we call Holy Communion. Through it we receive the forgiveness of our sins and a strengthening of our union with God and one another as we remember Christ’s life, death and Resurrection. Any baptized person is welcome and encouraged to share in this meal.
We believe there is One God who creates all things, redeems us from sin and death and renews us as the Children of God. As Episcopalians we promise to follow Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. We believe the mission of our church is restoration of all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. We are enriched by your presence with us. As you continue your journey, please remember us as a place of rest, restoration and reunion. If you are searching for a sacred place to draw closer to God, we welcome you.
