What to Expect
Every Sunday our parish gathers to praise God, hear his word proclaimed, celebrate the sacraments, and enjoy fellowship. At 9:00am our early service uses the traditional language of Rite I and less music. This service is perfect for those who don't feel comfortable singing or who want to worship prayerfully and quietly. Our 11:00am service feature more music and singing. Drawing from Episcopal hymnals and contemporary Christian resources this service features our piano and is meant to get people up and moving. Parents and young families feel especially at home here. After each service members and newcomers are invited to attend our coffee social hour.
Visiting a Church for the first time can be intimidating. What should I wear? What if I don't know anyone? What will people think of me?
We care about you, not what you’re wearing. We believe in a casual atmosphere so come dressed to be comfortable and share fellowship with others. We don’t care who you’re voting for in the next election or how many tattoos you have. We’re a church full of imperfect, broken people who are coming to know Jesus, and regardless of your story you are welcome.
Don't worry if you don't know anyone. You will after a few minutes! Our parish is full of loving, outgoing people who just want to get to know you and your story. Everyone' story is unique and a work in progress, that's what makes Church so much fun.
Kids can get messy but love is messy. For our youngest visitors we have a lovely nursery for kids ages 0-7. Our fully licensed caregivers have been trained and passed a background check. They love to provide a fun, safe environment for kids so parents can relax and concentrate on worship. But if your want your children with you, don't worry, we love kids and everything that comes with them.
Worship is the mystery of meeting God. As an Episcopal Church, St. Vincent's practices a rich liturgy rooted in the Book of Common Prayer and in the tradition of the Church Jesus Christ began more than 2,000 years ago. We sing beautiful music together. We listen to readings from the bible. We hear a sermon that teaches us how to apply that scripture to our daily lives. And most importantly we share in the Body and Blood of Jesus through Holy Communion.
