Sunday Morning

 

Sunday Worship

Worship at Grace Anglican Church is a family affair. Our weekly gathering is a foundational part of our life together as a community of believers in Jesus Christ. Worship is the primary time in which we as a community can together hear God’s Word proclaimed and taught, receive nourishment in the sacrament of Holy Communion, and offer to God our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving for all that he has done and continues to do.

As a church in the historic Anglican tradition, all of our services are "traditional" in the sense that they follow a set pattern and rhythm of worship. We follow the seasons of the church year and have Holy Communion in every service. This means that our worship is what most would call liturgical—meaning that when we worship we come to “work as a people” (liturgy means “work of the people”) as we honor God.


Come Worship With Us

Regardless of which service you choose to attend, you will find a welcoming community of people committed to loving each other and following Jesus together. Our services end with a commission as we are sent out into the world to be the hands and feet of Jesus, sharing the good news of his gospel in our various spheres of influence. Our hope is that you will find our Sunday worship to be faithful to the past and relevant for today. We desire to be on mission with what God is doing in our community and in our world.

We have two services on Sunday morning with a Christian Education hour in between (9:45 AM - 10:45 AM) Our services are unified by the same four major components of worship: Gathering, Word, Response, and Sending. Each part of our service is designed to engage your mind, heart, and actions, but are diversified because each service has its own stylistic expression. Want to learn more about Sunday Worship?

We encourage you to try each service so that you can find one that is right for you:

  • The 8:30 AM Traditional Service includes the most traditional liturgical elements including vestments, processional hymns on the organ and other choir arrangements. There is typically a choral offertory anthem followed by praise choruses during communion. This service appeals to many families who enjoy a vibrant expression of liturgical worship.

  • 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM is our Christian Education Hour and anyone is welcome to join in any week. Various courses are taught for children and adults. Sunday sermons cannot bear the full weight of discipleship, so we’ve dedicated an extra hour to teaching. Jesus commands his church to “teach them to observe all that I’ve commanded you” (Matthew 28:18-20). In Christian Education, we spend considerable time in the Scriptures and doctrines of the church so members can become fully discipled and fruitful in their faith. Teens participate right along with adults for Christian Education. Children K-6th grade have their own lessons in our children’s hallway during this time. Nursery is also available for children up to age 4.
  • The 11:00 AM Contemporary Service takes the four basic movements of the worship liturgy (Gathering, Word, Table and Sending) and presents them in a contemporary style. Music in this service is led by a band and many parts of the service are done in varying and creative ways. Our 11:00 AM service is broadcast online. You can watch this live or view the service at a later time on our website. Click here for Children's Ministry information.
