Sunday, December 16, 2018:
Third Sunday of Advent
This Sunday is our annual Advent Service of Lessons and Carols at the 10 am service. This traditional service consists of series of scripture readings that highlight the themes of the Advent season, and to each reading there is a musical response -- either a hymn or an anthem. The service also includes the lighting of the Advent Wreath and prayers. Please note that because of this special service, there will be no sermon or Communion at the 10 am service this Sunday. There will be, however, at our 8 am service in the chapel. And, once again this week, there will be a Christmas Pageant rehearsal following the 10 am service.
Godly Play meets this Sunday: children begin in church with their parents and are escorted to Trinity Hall for their classes following the first reading. Parents pick up their children after the conclusion of the service.
The Youth Group will meet this Sunday evening at 6 pm in Trinity Hall.
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.
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 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.
