Worship Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic

When we regather:

Sunday: 7:45 a.m.

Holy Eucharist, Rite I (Contemplative)

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

Sunday: 9:00 a.m.

Holy Eucharist, Rite II (Contemporary)

This worship service draws the largest number of families with children because it features a blend of traditional hymns with more family-friendly music and songs.

Sunday: 10:10 a.m.

Church School and Adult Forum (fall, winter and spring)

Sunday: 11:15 a.m.
Holy Eucharist, Rite II (Classical)

A traditional Rite II liturgy is enhanced with classical hymns and music led by an adult parish choir and musicians from the Shenandoah University Music program.

Wednesday: Noon

Holy Eucharist Rite II and Healing.

What about children's worship?

  • Children of any age are welcome in our worship.

  • To assist parents during worship, we offer child care for infants and toddlers in our Nursery and an Activity Room for children through first grade. 

  • We also provide a “non-anxious” area in the entry behind the glass doors where you can stay with a fussy child and still listen to worship.

  • Our younger worshipers can pick up a “Busy Board” (for ages 3-6) or Children’s Bulletin (for  7 to 12) so they can belong to the worship experience, and so they know worship is for them, too!
