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.
A lectionary is a set of readings assigned for each Sunday of the church year. The RCL is used by many denominations of Chrstians 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, Reformed and Orthodox traditions.
The lectionary is designed so that a lesson from the Old Testament and New Testament, including the Psalms and the Gospels, are read each week. Over the course of three years, we hear much of the Bible read during our Sunday services.Our readings from Scripture generally follow the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) as adopted by General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2006, using the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible.
Preparing for Sunday - the Order of Service
Our worship follows the Book of Common Prayer and supplemental materials authorized by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church, such as Enriching our Worship, the Book of Occasional Services, and additional authorized hymnals.
