Family Friendly ~ 9AM Sunday Service

 

Wherever you are in your spiritual journey we welcome you to gather with us for a family friendly service with music and a light coffee hour directly afterward.  

 

It doesn't matter what your road has been, if you haven't been to church in a long time, if you are divorced, gay or struggling with personal concerns. You are welcome here, unconditionally. Always.

 

Receiving wine during Communion

As we make every effort to find the “fine line” to accommodate to our parish members while keeping the risk of Covid as low as possible, communion wine (along with the bread) will be given out from a cruet at the top of the aisle to those who bring their own cup from home to receive the wine. 

Lenten Devotions

 

The vestry is encouraging parishioners to conduct their own private Lenten journey this year. There are many resources available, including:

Join us for Holy Week services

Maundy Thursday, 7PM- Remembering the Last Supper- the night Jesus washed the disciple's feet and was betrayed. Experience dramatic stripping of the altar in darkness and prepare for the Crucifiction.

Good Friday, 7PM- Jesus is beaten and crucified. Remember his sacrifice in this solemn ceremony. 

Great Vigil of Easter (Saturday) 7 PM- The Great Vigil of Easter is one of the oldest known rites of the Christian church, dating back to the second century. It brings worshippers from darkness into light. The service is comprised of four parts: The Service of Light (kindling of new fire, lighting the Paschal candle, the Exsultet); The Service of Lessons (readings from the Hebrew Scriptures interspersed with psalms, canticles, and prayers); Christian Initiation (Holy Baptism) or the Renewal of Baptismal Vows; and the Eucharist. (excerpt from Trinity Church Wall Street)

Celebrate with us and our Emmanuel Lutheran neighbors at Grace Church. All are welcome.

Easter Sunday, 9am- Join us for lively music, the Flowering of the Cross and an Easter Egg hunt during coffee.  This family friendly service celebrates the triumphant Resurrection with Holy Eucharist. We would love for you to join us!
