What to expect at our worship services
Our invitation to Holy Communion:
"So come you have been here often
and you have not been here in a long time.
You who are full of faith or full of doubt.
You who have tried to follow Jesus
and you who have failed.
Come, it is Christ who invites us to meet him here."
(Taken from Bishop Deon Johnson's consecration service)
About Worship at Calvary
In addition to in-person worship services, Calvary livestreams our 8 am and 10:30 am services, along with special music services. Those and other videos can be found and viewed on our YouTube channel. The complete time schedule for our Sunday services can be found on our Welcome page.
Our 8 am service is called RITE I and is a spoken service (no music) that uses traditional language (Elizabethan English). It is quiet, and the ancient language connects us to our faith history. It includes Holy Communion and a sermon.
Our 10:30 service is called RITE II and uses more contemporary language. It includes hymns and an anthem accompanied by organ or piano, along with a sermon and Holy Communion.
At 4:30 pm in the Chapel (upstairs near our parish hall) we hold the RITE PLACE service. It is a more informal service and uses contemporary/contemplative music. It includes Holy Communion and a shorter sermon that often includes dialogue with the congregation. While children are welcome at all of our services, there is ample space in the chapel for our youngest worshippers to spread out on the floor with toys and various musical instruments that are made available.
The DAILY OFFICES of Morning Prayer is offered on Tuesday and Thursday, and Compline (bedtime prayers) is offered most weeknights. The days and times for these services can be found on our Welcome page.
