Preparing for Sunday - the Lessons
Click the "Preparing for Sunday Button" on the left to read the Scriptures and brief reflections for last week, this week, and next week.
Each week, the Scriptures are assigned by the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) as adopted by General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2006. A lectionary is a pattern of readings assigned for each Sunday of the church year. The RCL is used by most churches throughout the world, which means that you will hear the same lessons regardless of which church you attend in the Episcopal, Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian and Orthodox traditions.
The lectionary is designed so that a lesson from the Old Testament, New Testament, Gospels and Psalms are read each week. Over the course of three years, most of the Bible is read during the worship service.
Audio files of most of our Sermons can be be found on our SermonCast page.
Preparing for Sunday - the Order of Service
Our worship follow the Book of Common Prayer and supplemental materials authorized by General Convention, such as Enriching our Worship, the Book of Occasional Services, and additional authorized hymnals.
We use season service booklets in order to help visitor and old pro alike participate fully in the service. The booklets contain the order of service for that season as well as the service music. Each week we provide an insert with the hymns, prayers, Scripture readings and announcements.
