We gather for worship every Sunday during the “school year” (the first Sunday after Labor day in September through June) at 8 and 10:30 a.m. During the summer (July – Labor Day Weekend) we offer one service at 9 a.m. We have a special space for children in our church with quiet toys, special coloring sheets, and crayons. A children’s message is offered at every service. (Children of all ages are invited to join our clergy at the front of the church for a holy and fun time of conversation.)
- 8 a.m. Spoken Worship with Holy Eucharist (a.k.a. Holy Communion or The Lord’s Supper). If you are familiar with Episcopal worship, this is a Rite I service. Rite I uses traditional language from worship dating back to 15th century! Thou mayest enjoy saying thee and thou!!
- 9ish Stay after 8 a.m. worship or come early for 10:30 worship and join us for conversation, coffee, and cookies.
- 10:30 a.m. Worship with music and Holy Eucharist. Worship at this service uses modern language worship forms. Our choir offers special music and assists in leading worship. Our Music Minister, Libby Wiebel, plays organ, piano, guitar, ukulele…worship is often a musical adventure!
- Typically, the first Sunday of every month we offer Healing Prayer during all services. Anyone who desires special prayers, either for themselves or for another, is invited to come forward for prayer with a member of our clergy. If you would like to be prayed with and it is not the first Sunday of the month…you can ALWAYS ask the clergy to pray with you; they would be honored!
- 9 a.m. Summer Services – during the summer the choir takes a vacation but we still have music in worship. Summer is a time we explore different worship forms (liturgy). There is always a Children’s message!
Round about this time of year – late fall/early winter (in Minnesota) – the seed catalogs would begin to arrive in the mail…Burpee, Harris, and others. My mother always set them aside in a special pile next to her chair. Mom put all the other catalogs we received in...
