Our early morning Sunday service uses Rite I language – traditional readings - and there is no music. A smaller service, 7:30a lends itself to peaceful, intimate worship.
10:30a, Parish Life Center
Our largest service, 10:00a in the Parish Life Center uses a combination of Rite I and Rite II language – traditional and contemporary readings – depending on the season. Worship is led by choir and organ, and Children’s Chapel is provided during the service.
10:30a Communion Café, Parish Hal
Our Communion Café worship service is a unique blend of traditional liturgy in a relaxed and inclusive setting. Worship is led by a live acoustic band, and the readings are projected rather than presented in leaflets. Akin to the concurrent 10:00a service in the Parish Life Center, Communion Café uses a combination of Rite I and Rite II language – traditional and contemporary readings – depending on the season.
11:00a, Worship at The Hill, Second Campus
Sunday worship at our second campus is relaxed and follows a slightly less traditional Episcopal liturgy. The services uses Rite II language, and worship is led by a small, acoustic band. There is a strong feeling of community, as the campus is shared with a local house church, Comunidad la Vena, on Sunday mornings.
6:00p, Parish Life Center
Our evening service is identified most by its beautiful and traditional organ and choir music although the language used it Rite II. Rooted deeply in the Episcopal tradition, this service draws a small but devoted crowd. One Sunday every month, this time is used for Choral Evensong.
Evensong (Evening Prayer) is part of the Church’s ancient and ongoing daily round of services of prayer and scripture. Choral Evensong, sung at Good Shepherd at 6:00 pm on the second Sunday of the month, September through May, features music ranging from plainsong to the most elaborate choral music our tradition has to offer, including canticles and anthems by composers such as Gibbons, Howells, Purcell, Stanford,Tallis, Wood, and Vaughan Williams.
