Our Worship Services

Worship is at the heart of life at Christ Church.

Our mission is to be a spiritual home for all people. We seek to fulfill this vision by gathering to love God through our vibrant worship and by seeking to grow in our faith by engaging our hearts and mind in thoughtful, relevant education. We take seriously the call to create a safe community where all people are welcome, and where we can care for and support each other through all the passages of life.

We gather together to glorify God in a reverent, joyous and meaningful way on Sundays and other times throughout each week. Services are grounded in Holy Scripture and based upon The Book of Common Prayer.

If you prefer a traditional service in a classic church sanctuary, join us in the Church. If a casual experience is more your style, we have a contemporary service in All Saints' Hall. Our youngest churchgoers enjoy the Discovery service, also in All Saints' Hall, where children can participate in all forms of worship created just for them. At 5:00 PM we have a contemporary service that, without the busy activity of the morning, is very informal, simple, and peaceful. 

Regular Sunday SERVICES (september - may)

7:30 AM  Holy Eucharist in the Church

For earlier risers, this Eucharist uses Rite I, which has traditional language from the Book of Common Prayer. The ethos of this service hearkens back to Psalm 46:10: “Be still, and know that I am God.”

8:45 AM Holy Eucharist in the Church*

Rite II liturgy and hymns with a familiar ceremony create an experience of timeless worship accentuated by the power and beauty of piano, pipe organ, and excellent choral music offered by the Christ Church Choir and Festival Singers.

8:45 AM Contemporary Eucharist with Worship Band in All Saints' Hall*

Come as you are for this unique encounter with God. This Rite II worship brings together ageless traditions with contemporary music and artistic forms in an eclectic blend of old and new. Our energetic worship band and multimedia presentations go hand-in-hand to connect us with the Divine.

Children's Chapel in the Green Room

During the 8:45 AM services, children in fifth grade and below are invited to a special kid-friendly worship experience. 

10:00 AM  Sunday School for all ages

11:15 AM  Holy Eucharist in the Church* (1st,  3rd and 5th Sundays), Morning Prayer* (2nd and 4th Sundays)
Traditional worship anchored by our youth choirs, instrumentalists, and soloists bridges the generations with a touch of the ancient and new. Piano and pipe organ are featured as the primary instruments, and the congregation worships musically with hymns and ritual music. 

11:15 AM  Discovery Eucharist in All Saints' Hall*

For young children and families, this service is a modified, slightly abbreviated Eucharist with an informal atmosphere. The music is upbeat and child-friendly, offering both traditional and contemporary songs. Children are invited to serve as "Young Ministers" (click here to sign up) who participate with special roles during worship.  A mix of parents, grandparents and children offer joyful praise in this welcoming, low-stress environment.

5:00 PM Holy Eucharist in the Church

Like breaking bread with family and friends, Sunday evening worship offers an intimate, casual approach to traditional worship, along with occasional use of newer forms of praise to our Creator. This service is especially helpful to those who are away on Sunday morning, or for those who prefer an informal and relaxed setting.

*Crib and nursery service is provided from 8:30 AM - 12:15 PM (or end of service).
