The congregation participates in the services using The Book of Common Prayer [BCP] (the red book), The Hymnal 1982 (the blue book) and Wonder, Love, and Praise (the green book) at the Sunday services. The numbers for hymns and songs are listed in the Sunday bulletin and also posted at the front of the nave on the hymn boards. Service Music is the term used for musical settings from the BCP and other liturgical sources. The numbers which refer to items in this portion of the The Hymnal 1982 are preceded by the letter “S”.
Children of all ages are welcome at all services. By virtue of their Baptism, children are part of the Body of Christ. As full members of our congregation, they are welcome to worship and to receive the sacrament of Communion. Quiet Activity Bags containing coloring books, crayons, and a children’s guide to our worship are available by the doors to the nave. At the 9:00 am service during the school year, there is a Children’s Chapel service for all children who would like to attend. Children wishing to attend follow the leader out after the Gospel lesson, and return to their parents in the nave at the Peace.
If you prefer that your children not receive Communion, they may still come forward and receive a blessing. They should cross their arms to show that they will not be receiving Communion
