Our times of service are on Sundays: a spoken service at 8:00 a.m. (Holy Eucharist, Rite I) and a service with music at 11:00 a.m. (Holy Eucharist, Rite II). The nursery is open on Sunday mornings during worship services and during the Christian Education hour.

You’ll find many opportunities to be involved here. We have numerous committees, groups, outreach ministries, missions abroad and other activities that will allow you to grow in fellowship and put your faith into action. Our preschool’s reputation is excellent and our EYC is one of the area’s most active youth groups. New voices are always welcome in our youth and adult choirs.

Break for Holy Week, Easter

and the week after Easter!!

But more great learning ahead:

April 13  Book Study C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce. The Great Divorce arose out of Lewis’ interest in the nature of spiritual choices. The idea for allowing damned spirits a “holiday” in Heaven was suggested to him by his reading of the seventeenth century Anglican divine Jeremy Taylor, who introduced him to the ancient Catholic notion of Refrigerium – that the damned are given occasional repose from the torments of Hell by being granted “days off” in other places. The title of the book was a play on William Blake’s’ The Marriage of Heaven and Hell – Lewis implying that no such marriage is possible. (C.S. Lewis.org)
