Ministries: Worship & Prayer
They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. [Acts 2:42]

As we prepare our sanctuary for Holy Communion, creating an atmosphere of beauty and peace plays a part.
The "breaking of the bread" is Holy Communion or the Eucharist (which literally means "thanksgiving"). It is the family meal for Christians and a foretaste of the heavenly banquet. All persons who have been baptized, and are therefore part of the extended family that is the Church, are welcome to receive the bread and wine, and be in communion with God and each other. If you do not wish to receive Communion, please feel free to come and kneel at the communion rail anyway to receive a special blessing. Simply cross your arms over your chest. In the Episcopal Church, we generally kneel or stand to pray, sit to listen and stand to sing. We invite you to do whatever suits you best. If you are unable to kneel or stand, it’s perfectly all right to sit. Please join with us in our worship as you are best able.
Our worship services are found in the red Book of Common Prayer, the blue Hymnal and the green paperback paperback Wonder, Love, and Praise.
The Worship Committee meets with the Priest-in-Charge quarterly to discuss upcoming services and special events and to plan and coordinate the upcoming liturgical season. If you are would like to participate, please contact Fr. Peter.
