Worship With Us
“In him you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 368).
Worship is at the core of our community of faith. In worship, we come together to acknowledge the holiness of God, to hear the stories of our tradition, to offer prayer and to celebrate God’s continuing presence among us. Everyone is welcome to participate in our worship because it is in worship that we live out our lives as a Christian family together.
The Holy Eucharist is the principal act of Christian worship. In this service, we “continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers,” as our Baptismal Covenant puts it.

Rites are prescribed for various sacraments, offices and occasions in liturgical churches, including the Episcopal Church. Rite 1 uses traditional language.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) (Ages 3-7)
At Emmanuel, we believe that God and the child have a unique relationship. Our responsibility, as adults, is to prepare an environment where that relationship can flourish. Through work by many of Emmanuel’s parishioners, that environment (known as The Atrium), was created in 2019. Catechesis of our youngest members occurs on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:05. For more information on CGS please use the link below or contact the church: https://www.cgsusa.org/discover/cgs-approach/
Living the Good News (LGN) (Ages 8-12)
Living the Good News is a lectionary-based program used by Emmanuel on Sunday mornings for older elementary children. Lessons based on the day’s readings are presented in an age-appropriate style. Since adults are hearing the same readings every Sunday, this approach promotes discussion within families beyond Sunday mornings!
9:15am Adult Education Forum
Our Adult Forum is an opportunity to learn about our faith while entertaining a diversity of perspectives. Through speakers, rector forums and small group table discussions the Forum demonstrates an active love of God seeking a deeper knowledge of God.
