Worship lies at the heart of the life of any 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. All are welcome to participate in our worship because it is in worship that we live out our life as people seeking God.

We pray our early morning celebration of the Holy Eucharist using The Book of Common Prayer’s Rite II. The 8:00a service includes a sermon and Holy Communion. This service does not include music, so there is ample opportunity for silence.

HOLY EUCHARIST WITH AN ACOUSTIC BAND
The Hill, Sanctuary
The Hill’s Sunday worship follows a slightly less-traditional Episcopal liturgy, in a comfortable setting. Prayed in the The Book of Common Prayer’s Rite II, and supported by the choral and musical leadership of a live, acoustic band, The Hill’s worship includes readings from scripture; a sermon; prayers; congregational singing; and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. The service also includes a brief children’s sermon, after which families may choose for their children to leave the service for a children’s lesson. Children then return to the service in time for Communion.

Our evening worship offers a more meditative, intimate atmosphere, acknowledging with prayer the close of day. The 6:00p includes readings from scripture; a sermon; prayers; congregational hymns led by organ; and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Choral Evensong | 6:00p
HOLY EUCHARIST WITH SPECIAL MUSIC Windsor, nave
On appointed Sundays throughout the year, the Good Shepherd Choir leads Choral Evensong for our 6:00p service. Evensong, a music-rich setting of Evening Prayer, is among our most traditionally Anglican liturgies, witnessing the Church’s ancient devotion of praying each day’s hours. At Good Shepherd, this service comprises choral anthems, plainsong chant, congregational hymnody, scripture readings, and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

Monday – Friday | 7:00a ONLINE MORNING PRAYER
This daily online prayer provides an opportunity to start our mornings with prayer and God. Join us on the Good Shepherd Facebook page.
Wednesday | 5:30p HEALING SERVICE
This quiet, reflective service takes time to pray specifically for those whose names appear on our prayer lists – those who suffer in any way, our expectant mothers and newborn babies and their families, those who have died, and those serving in the armed forces. Anointing of the Sick is offered to those who so desire, and the liturgy concludes with Holy Communion.
