what to expect

Service Times: Sundays, 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m


Worship services use the Episcopal liturgy and a mix of traditional hymns with contemporary music. Feel free to dress casually or to dress up.  The 8:30 a.m. service uses a dual-language seasonal bulletin with the text in English on the left side and Sgaw KaRen on the right side.  The Gospel is read in English and KaRen and sometimes other readings are read in both languages.  Participation is encouraged in both languages.  The 11 a.m. worship service is conducted in English.  A weekly handout is provided with music and other items (such as lectionary readings) that change weekly.


Join us for coffee and conversation between services, beginning at approximately 9:45 a.m.

children

Children of all ages are always welcome in the worship service. But we also have other options:

  • A quiet room, located at the back of the sanctuary, offers additional space for parents to sit with restless children.
  • Activity bags are available for children who prefer to remain in the worship service. You will find them on a rack outside the sanctuary.
  • Babies and toddlers can play or be cared for in the nursery, which is located on the lower level across from the main stairs and staffed by at least two volunteers.
  • During the 8:30 service children ages 4-10 (fifth grade) are invited to attend Children’s Chapel.

education hour

During the school year we offer an hour of education between the services for all ages:

  • Adults gather in the Loft on the third floor for various Adult Education offerings.
  • An English conversation group meets in the reception area.
  • Middle and high school students meet on the third floor for Bible study.
  • A toddler Sunday School in the Children's Village on the lower level, for children ages 18 months to 3 years, teaches little ones about the love of Jesus through story, song, art, and play.
  • Preschool and younger elementary school children explore God’s nature, care, and work through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based approach. These classes, held in the Children's Village on the lower level, extend into the 11:00 service, with children joining their families for communion at the end of the service at roughly 11:45.
  • Fourth and fifth graders have their own class that meets on the third floor with a curriculum focused on teaching the Bible.

All adults and youth working with children have received Safe Church training.
