Sunday Worship Schedule

The heart of our parish life is worship and sharing in the Eucharist which feeds us spiritually as a community. Our liturgies center around The Book of Common Prayer, 1979, and we use the new Revised Common Lectionary.

8:45 a.m. & 11:15 Holy Eucharist
We sing the Eucharistic prayer at both services. The morning liturgies follow a similar pattern of Eucharistic prayers, music, readings, and preaching.

What about my kids?

Children are always welcome to worship and encouraged to join their famlies at all our services. A bulletin designed for children is available in the Narthex along with crayons. 

Children's Chapel is held during the 8:45 a.m. service on Sundays during the school year. It is a joyful child-focused service with liturgy, music, a story and prayers. We learn to set the table, reverence, cross ourselves and learn the stories and songs of the liturgical year. We then process back to "big church" to join our families during the Peace, and remain for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist  Parents are welcome to come to Children's Chapel anytime.  

Childcare is available for children 3 years old and younger starting from 8:30 a.m. in our church nursery.  Sunday School is available for children ages 3 and up during the Education Hour in between services. We also have classes for youth grades 6th – 12th. Visit the Youth Formation page for class descriptions.

Liturgical Colors

Worship at Epiphany follows the liturgical calendar and is centered on the festive days of Christmas and Easter.  For each of these festivals, there is a season of preparation, a season of celebration, and a season of growth.  Over the course of the year, the colors in our sanctuary will change to mark the changing liturgical seasons.  These colors indicate the tone or emphasis of worship on any particular day.

 

Advent Blue Signifies the Blessed Virgin Mary as well as the darkness of night before the dawn of the sun of righteousness
Christmas White Signifies joy, purity, and Christ’s glory
Ordinary Time Green Signifies the seasons of spring and summer, hope and peace, as well as the growth of the church
Lent Lenten White Signifies putting on sack cloth
Easter White Signifies the joy of the Resurrection and Christ’s glory
Pentecost Red Signifies the work of the Holy Spirit as in the tongues of fire found in Acts. It is also the color of the martyrs

White is also used for other special festive days such as Epiphany and Christ the King Sundays.
