Sunday Services at 8am, 10:15am, and 6:00pm
Sunday Mornings begin with a quiet service of Rite I Eucharist, a traditional spoken Communion service with a sermon and music, but no singing, at 8:00 am.
Sunday 10:15 am is the largest service of the week with choir, organ, piano, and a more contemporary liturgy. Rite II feels more familiar for many, and this tends to be the service for most families, who stay after the education hour at 9:15, for worship. Children are welcome at all of our service, but they are active and visible mainly at this one. The service is traditional and beautiful, centered in music, preaching, and worship offered to God in joy and an architecture of peace.
Sunday evenings at 6:00 pm is our quietest and least formal service, a Rite II spoken liturgy in the side chapel. It is a warm service of friends, even for strangers, because in this quiet place we experience the peace and love of Christ in an intimate and close service without music.
Wednesday Healing Service at 10:00am
Wednesdays Eucharist at 10:00 a.m. is held in the side chapel with prayers for healing and the laying on of hands offered after Communion and a sermon that is usually about the saint of the day.
What Are Services Like?
Each service varies in length from about 40 minutes to a little over an hour. While our church is fairly traditional, we are as diverse in opinion as you will find anywhere. You are welcome whether you think like the person next to you or not. We seek to know Christ together, so other considerations are less important than learning to know, love, and serve Christ.
There are often people in shorts and sandals and suit coats at the same service because we come from all sorts of places physically, spiritually, financially, and politically. You are welcome from wherever you find yourself. We have a place for you at Christ Church of the Ascension.
