Welcome to Grace!

At Grace Church you will find a community of friendly and faithful Christians who worship in the Anglican Tradition. As you enter the church you will be welcomed by an usher, and given a weekly bulletin. This bulletin, a worship guide, will lead you through the service. 


This  guide is intended to help you worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:23) Our liturgy (order of worship) is complex and full of meaning. We want our worship to be both authentic and informed. Because the Gospel permeates our entire liturgy, we’ve structured this bulletin to call attention to the work of the Spirit through our words. The sidebar on each page contains notes to define terms and give scriptural context for our songs and prayers.

If you are attending the 10:00am service, the words to the songs we will sing, or the names and numbers of the hymns will be listed. The Hymnal is the larger red book in the book rack. At this service we have special programs for children and youth from infants to middle-school age.

what will the service be like?

Throughout the service we stand, sit, kneel, and sing.  Liturgical worship is like a dance.  Once you learn the steps, you come to appreciate the rhythm. You will hear four readings of Scripture - Old Testament, including a Psalm; and Gospel, and another New Testament reading.  There will be a Sermon by Fr. Jonathan or, occasionally a guest preacher.  (You can listen to some past sermons here.) The sidebars on our service bulletins give the source of much of our liturgy. If you need help following along, just ask the person next to you in the pew. We're a friendly group and many of us were new once, too. During Announcements, visitors will be recognized and given a small gift and church information. Don't worry, you won't be asked to speak!

 

All baptized Christians, no matter age or denomination, are welcome to receive communion.
