The central act of worship at Holy Communion is our weekly celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Each Sunday morning, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist at 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. The 8 a.m. service is a traditional Rite One liturgy, with traditional language. It does not include hymns. The 10:30 a.m. service is Rite Two (contemporary language) with choir. Nursery care is available from 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. on Sundays.
At 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Sundays of each month, we offer a Taizé Eucharist. Taizé is an ecumenical, monastic community in France, and the style of worship practiced there has drawn young people from all over the world since 1940. At Church of the Holy Communion, we seek to create a place where a community of people can experience Taizé worship and explore how to integrate its simplicity and serenity into their lives. Taizé worship is characterized by candles, peaceful chants and ample time for silent prayer.
At 5:30 p.m. on the second, fourth (and sometimes fifth) Sundays of each month, we offer a Celtic Eucharist. Our Celtic worship is drawn from the liturgical tractions of Iona and Northumbria in Scotland, and the music at these services can be contemplative, lively and haunting - even dancelike. The prayers are at once earthy, holy and inclusive.
12:15 until 12:45 p.m. Holy Eucharist with Healing Prayers
There is no music in this midday service, a lunchtime respite in the middle of the workweek. It includes a brief reflection by a clergyperson, communion and prayers for all who suffer in mind, body or spirit.
Child care is available on Sunday mornings from 8:30 - 11:30 a.m.
Offered at the 10:30 a.m. service. Children come forward during the service to process to their area for a time of God-inspired singing, activity (and a snack). Later a member of the clergy delivers the gospel story and a time of prayer upstairs in Room 309. The children return to the service after the passing of the Peace. All are welcome to join with our youngest members to share the word of God in song, story and movement.
