St. Francis Day Pet Blessing and Reception Oct. 4th
We’re excited to get to know you better. Our secretary or a clergy person might be in touch. In the meantime here are some other resources to take advantage of.
Perhaps you’ve walked past an Episcopal Church and wondered what goes on behind the red doors. Perhaps you’ve heard a lot about Christianity and you’re wondering if what you’ve heard is accurate. A lot of it isn’t – at least, it isn’t true for most Christians. Extremists get most air time, but The Episcopal Church sits firmly in the middle of the spectrum on pretty much every major issue.
Our regular worship services are Sundays at 8, 10:30 & noon (Spanish), Wed at 6 pm, Thurs at 2 pm (St Luke’s Nursing Center), Fri at 10 am and Sat at 5 pm. During the school year, we also have a short, child-centered worship service at 9 am, followed by Sunday school.
Yes—9-1:30 on Sunday and 5:30-8:15 pm Wed (school year only). The nursery is located on the west side of the building, in the area closest to the red doors into the nave, and is staffed by two trained, background checked nursery workers. All parents receive a buzzer to alert them of any issues their child might be having, which is your “receipt” to pick your child up later.
During the school year, we offer Sunday school at 9:30, and Wed youth groups for 3 year olds-High School at 7:15 pm. Our acolyte program allows youth ages 3rd grade through High School to assist in worship leadership every Sunday at 10:30. Summer programs for youth are organized at a diocesan level.
Sunday mornings starting at 9:30 we have an adult forum, which tends to be topical, often including extended Bible study.
Weekday offerings include Bible studies 2nd Tues at 6 pm in Carl Junction, every other Tues at 6:30 for women, each Wed 7-8:15 pm, and Thurs at 11 am.
The entrance from the parking lot is ramped, as is the entrance from the parish house into the Church proper. We have a fully accessible restroom near the nursery. Sunday services are amplified. Large print editions of the Book of Common Prayer are available on request.
You are welcomed to join us in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper if you have been baptized in any denomination in any amount of water at any age. In The Episcopal Church, we come forward to the altar rail to receive the Sacrament: follow the lead of the people in the pew ahead of you. We are a common cup, “real” wine tradition. Gluten free wafers are available at the section of the rail behind the pulpit.
