Regular Sunday Services
(Beginning Sunday, September 18)
8:45 am Holy Eucharist in the Church*
The Holy Eucharist is designated “the principal act of Christian worship.” This service is the weekly celebration of Christ’s resurrection and work among us. The Rite Two liturgy uses contemporary language as found in The Book of Common Prayer 1979. Congregational hymns, Psalms, and choral music for this service are selected from the breadth our Anglican Episcopal heritage, and are led by the Christ Church Schola Cantorum.
8:45 am Contemporary Eucharist in All Saints' Hall*
The Contemporary Eucharist is a Rite Two liturgy from The Book of Common Prayer, combined with various styles of contemporary Christian music led by our worship team. Within the relaxed atmosphere of All Saints' Hall, and using multimedia presentations, this service offers time for prayer and meditation, congregational singing, exploration of scripture, and Holy Communion.
Most Sundays during the 8:45 am services, Children's Chapel is offered for children age 3 and up. Children begin worship with their parents, and are led out for their own special worship experience at a designated time during the service.
10 am Sunday School for all ages
11:15 am Holy Eucharist in the Church*
Like the 8:45 AM Holy Eucharist, the 11:15 AM service includes scripture, a sermon, communion, and music. At this service, congregational hymns are traditional and the Christ Church Choir and Choristers (children) offer a broad range of choral music.
11:15 am Discovery Eucharist in All Saints' Hall*
For young children and families, this service is a modified, slightly abbreviated Holy Eucharist. Music is child-friendly, with both traditional and contemporary songs. A mix of parents, grandparents, and children offer joyful praise in this welcoming environment. If your child would like to serve as a Young Minister with a special role during the service, sign up here »

Masks are optional for all gatherings on the Christ Church campus.
While this is joyful news for many, we know there are still many in our community who are immunocompromised or have concerns about children who cannot yet be vaccinated. As such, masks are still encouraged for anyone who prefers to wear one. We have been through quite a journey together, and we are still navigating a “new normal.” Everyone’s experience has been different, and we honor each and every one.
- Masks are welcome but not required during worship.
- The Chapel will be reserved for mask wearers who wish to remain distanced from unmasked people.
- Communion in both kinds will be offered at the altar rail in the Church and from stations in All Saints’ Hall. Those who wish to receive communion wine will be invited to dip their wafer into a shallow bowl containing wine (this is called “intinction”). We ask that parents help their children dip their wafer if they are choosing to receive wine. The common cup is not permitted at this time.
- We will return to passing the offering plates in all services.
- Nursery care will be provided.
We will no longer require sign-in for contact tracing purposes.
If you experience any symptoms of contagious illness, please refrain from attending worship or other activities in person. Worship services and many other programs are offered online or via Zoom. We will continue to rely on our guiding principles of safety, hospitality, and respect as we make decisions going forward. We are grateful for all the ways our parish has cared for one another and the broader community during this unprecedented time.
