Holy Communion for the People of God
All Christians baptized in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit who receive the Sacrament in their denomination are welcome at the Lord's Table. Come forward to the Altar Rail as the Ushers direct you and take the next available place. You may kneel or stand, though the custom for most of our parishioners is to kneel. Receive the communion bread from the Priest in your open right palm. You may then take the bread to your mouth, or, if you wish to receive by intinction (dipping), place the communion bread between the thumb and index finger of your right hand and hold the bread over your open left palm. This signals the Chalice Bearer to allow you to intinct the wafer into the wine in the intinction insert in the chalice. You may also choose to receive the wine directly from the chalice by gently guiding it to your lips as the Chalice Bearer presents it to you. If you choose not to receive the wine, simply cross your arms across your chest after you have received the wafer. The Church has long held that the Sacrament is effectual even when only one of the elements is received. Please return to your pew as soon as the next person has received the wine.
If it is physically difficult for you to come to the Altar Rail, please indicate this to an Usher and the Priest will bring Communion to you where you are seated.
If you, or your child(ren), would like to receive a blessing from a Priest at the Altar Rail, come forward just as you would to receive Communion and cross your arms across your chest, and/or instruct your child(ren) to do the same.
Please join us for coffee between the services at 9:00 a.m. in the parish hall.
This is a great time to see and greet old and new friends, and we genuinely encourage all visitors to join us during this time.
Our nursery is open from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon on Sunday mornings. All children aged infant through 3 years old are welcome to stay with the nursery attendant as their parents attend the morning worship service.
The nursery is located on the first floor of the parish hall. Please feel free to ask an usher or any member of the church to assist you in locating the nursery.

The Season of Easter
Contrary to what many people think, Easter is not a single day. It is actually a season that begins on Easter Sunday and continues for seven full weeks. This even-week cycle is known historically as the Great Fifty Days or the Week of Weeks. During this time, the church celebrates the Lord’s resurrection, His appearances to the disciples after Easter, His post-resurrection teachings, His ascension into heaven, and the disciples’ eager anticipation of the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. Ascension Day, the 40th of the Great Fifty Days, is frequently commemorated with a special evening worship service since it always falls on a Thursday.
It's almost time for our Annual Anniversary Event!
Come celebrate the Sunday of Pentecost with a combined service on May 24th at 10 AM, followed by an all-church picnic (the main dish is provided, so please bring a side or dessert to share), complete with water activities for the kids, but adults are certainly welcome to join in! This year we'll have a large water slide along with smaller pools & other water activities. If you'd like to help offset the approximately $250 cost, please send a check or drop it in the offering plate on Sunday, notated Pentecost Water Slide. Thanks!
