Worship is the center of parish life at Christ Church.
It is our response to God’s presence in our lives and represents the best of what we have been given returned to God. As Episcopalians, all of our services are rooted in The Book of Common Prayer, the symbol and source of our unity. Lex orandi, lex credendi, lex vivendi, “as we pray, so we believe, so we live.”
Today, Episcopalians come from many denominational backgrounds and we celebrate the diversity of our various traditions alongside the richness of our Anglican heritage. Through prayer, praise, scripture, sacrament, silence, and song we find our inspiration for an ever-deepening relationship with God and the motivation to go out into the world to serve others.
The broadcast video remains available on the website through midday Wednesday each week.
