WORSHIP

Worshiping during a pandemic
We have moved indoors for worship. On Sundays we celebrate Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion or the Lord's Supper) at 10:00. We live-stream to our Facebook page, St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Ewing, and we post to our YouTube channel in the afternoon.

No matter what your vaccination status is, everyone must wear a facecovering or mask.  If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 or you just don't feel well, please stay home.

 

Preparing for Sunday - the Lessons
Click the "Preparing for Sunday Button" in the left-hand column on our Home page to read the Scriptures and brief reflections for last week, this week, and next week.

We use the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). A lectionary is a set of readings assigned for each Sunday of the church year. The RCL is used by many denominations of Christians 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 RCL uses the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) of the Bible.

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. 

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.
