Sunday, December 15, 2019:
The Third Sunday of Advent
This Sunday at the 10 am service we will be having our Advent Service of Lessons and Carols, featuring the Choir and the Trinity Ringers. An Advent tradition, this service consists of several scripture readings that trace the traditional themes of the Advent season, interspersed with anthems and congregational hymns. The service includes prayers, but does not include Communion or a Sermon. Our 8 am service will be a Eucharist and will include a homily.
At 5 pm this Sunday Rev. Frannie will be offering our Blue Christmas Service in the Chapel. This service provides a healing space for those who are suffering from pain or loass at this time of year. Often, at Christmas, people who are struggling with a burden can find it especially difficult, and this service acknowledges that amidst the joy of Christmas, some people don't experience that joy -- or experience it with something of a painful edge. If you find yourself in such a place this season, or simply wish to be in solidarity with those who are, please join us. The service includes Communion, a homily, and prayers for healing.
For those with children interested in participating in our Christmas Pageant at 3 pm on Christmas Eve, rehearsals for the pageant will begin this Sunday following the 10 am service, and another rehearsal will be held on December 22. There is also a rehearsal at 2 pm on Christmas Eve.
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.
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.
