WORSHIP MINISTERS SCHEDULE
EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
Sunday School - 9 am
Beginning Jan. 17, Fr. Keith and Fr. Hunter will co-teach lessons about the seven deadly sins based on the book, Glittering Vices. As we near the season of Lent, this study will help to examine areas of our lives that need attention. We meet in the Community Center. You can watch the live stream online here.
Sunday Worship For Kids - 9 am
Sunday School is held at 9 am for children ages preschool through 5th grade; nursery and childcare will also be provided for infants and toddlers.
Ministry with children happens in the Promise Land wing of our campus and includes special worship time for ages 3-5 years and nursery care during the Sunday service. Children ages 6 (1st grade) and up are encouraged to worship with their families. We understand they are not usually still or silent, but we welcome them and believe there is great value to having them join us in worship.
Sunday Eucharist - 10:30 am
Our Sunday worship service at 10:30 emphasizes the "three streams" of our Anglican faith: Scripture, Sacraments, and Spirit. The focus centers on the authority of Scripture and is expressed through observing the time-honored sacraments while experiencing the power, freedom, and ministry of the Holy Spirit. This is a liturgical service and includes Holy Communion; all baptized Christians are welcome to receive from the Lord's table.
Seating is limited with social distancing during Covid-19, so please call the church office at 772.562.8670 to reserve a seat. It is also live-streamed. We look forward to seeing you!
