“O worship the LORD, in the beauty of holiness.” Psalm 96:9
At the very heart of our Christian life together is prayer and worship. Our encounter with God and one another through these activities, provides meaning, direction, connection, comfort, and strength for all of life. At All Saints Church, our worship is grounded in the Anglican tradition, according to the rites and ceremonies of The Book of Common Prayer. In this tradition, the Holy Eucharist (“The Lord’s Supper” or “Communion”) is the principal act of worship. The word “Eucharist” means “thanksgiving,” and points to the fact that we share this meal giving thanks to God for everything—most especially, for the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. As we share in this sacred meal, we are united with the risen Christ, as well as generations of Christians across the globe who have shared in it before us.
At All Saints, we are blessed to offer sacred worship in a variety of settings and styles. On Sundays at 7:45 a.m. is Holy Eucharist “Rite I” which uses traditional language and focuses on Christ’s death as the sacrificial offering for the sins of the world. This is a spoken service. There are two services at 10 a.m. The first, in our Nave, is usually Holy Eucharist “Rite II”, with music led by organ and choir, and the second is a “Family Table” Service in the Great Hall. This Eucharist service has informal praise and worship music and is intentionally inter-generational. We also have Morning Prayer services on Sunday and Tuesday mornings, and a prayer service at 6:30 on Wednesdays. Please click on Service Times (above) for more information.

Our Flower Guild blesses us weekly through their altar flowers as well as the flowers throughout the church that beautify God’s house of worship. Each week, the altar flowers may be given by a parishioner in memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion.
