Sunday, April 30:
Second Sunday of Easter
This Sunday, at our 10 am service, will be our monthly Alternative Music Service, this month led by our Bluegrass Group. We will have visitors from our Diocesan camp program on hand, who will be sharing information about the great summer camp opportunities for children and youth at St. Dorothy's Rest and Bishop's Ranch. Join us for this service, or at 8 am or 5:05 pm as Easter season continues.
Children begin in church with their families, and then leave in procession after the first reading for their classes in Trinity Hall. This week, parents are invited to join their children in Godly Play to experience what this program offers their children for spiritual formation. Youth are invited to be in church this Sunday morning -- Youth Group will meet at 6:00 pm.
Here are more details about our normal Sunday worship schedule:
Our 8:00 am service is held in the Chapel, except on the first Sunday of the month, when it is held in the Church. It includes Communion, Sermon, and a little music. It follows Rite I from the Book of Common Prayer ("thee, thou, thy" language) and is a quieter, more contemplative service.
Our 10:00 am service is held in the Church, and is the one most people attend. It follows a cycle of liturgies or services over each month. The choir sings on most Sundays.
Our 5:05 pm service is held in the Chapel. It is a small, informal service, and always includes a Gospel reading, reflection on the Gospel, and a simple Communion. On the first Sunday of the month, we offer a spiritual practices Eucharist -- the first 20 minutes will focus on spiritual practices using Scripture, followed by a brief Eucharist. On the second Sunday of the month, music from the Taizé tradition is incorporated into the service. On the other Sundays of the month, we offer a Celtic-inspired Eucharist with Gospel reflection. The 5:50 service takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
We have a professionally staffed nursery (located in Angus Hall) for infants through age 3. It is open from 9:00 am until the end of the 10:00 am service.
Sunday mornings are active for children. Children begin the 10 am service each Sunday in church, and then leave in procession after the first reading to gather separately, first to hear the Gospel reading of the day and then to go to their classes. Children's Christian formation includes Godly Play for children age four through third grade and the Explorers program for children in fourth and fifth grade. Parents can pick up their children from Trinity Hall and bring them into church to receive Communion if they wish, or they may pick up their children after church is over.
