Ash Wednesday Worship

We conduct a Wednesday Noon Holy Eucharist (12:00-12:30 p.m.),and three worship services on Sunday, each with its own identity:

7:45 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite I

Our early morning worship uses the more traditional language of The Book of Common Prayer and usually does not have music.

9:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite II, with Children's Chapel

While children are welcome at ALL worship, this worship draws the largest number of children because it features a blend of traditional hymns with more children-friendly music and songs and Children's Chapel which is offered during the adult sermon so that children and adults worship with age-appropriate messages, songs, and prayers.

11:15 a.m. Holy Eucharist, Rite I or II, with Children's Chapel and Prayers for Healing

A traditional liturgy is enhanced with classical hymns and music led by an adult parish choir and musicians from the Shenandoah University Music program. Worship varies between Rite I and Rite II, depending on season, and also offers Children's Chapel during the adult sermon, as well as prayers for healing during Holy Eucharist.

Professionally-staffed child care is available at all worship. Christian Education for all ages (pre-K, 1st-5th grade Church School, God & Donuts for Middle School youth, Coffee/Hot Chocolate & Conversation for High School youth, and Adult Forum) takes place each Sunday from 10:10 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Plenty of parking is also available at the School Board Administration Building.
