We are an inclusive, progressive and diverse Christian community, dedicated to loving others as Christ has loved us. We welcome all who wish to join us.
Let us know if you have a prayer request for yourself or someone else, and we’ll include it in our Sunday bulletin. For indefinite requests, please submit a new request each week. If you have a pastoral care emergency, please call our office or email us.
The season of Pentecost is the longest season in the Church year. It begins the Monday following the Day of Pentecost and lasts until the season of Advent begins. It may include as many as 28 Sundays, depending on the date of Easter. This includes Trinity Sunday which is the First Sunday after Pentecost, when we are reminded that God is a Triune God, in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), but just one God.
The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) provides proper collects and readings for the other Sundays of the season, which are numbered and designated for use on the Sundays which are closest to specific days in the monthly calendar. For example, Proper 3 is designated for use, if needed, on the Sunday closest to May 25. Proper 29 is designated for use on the Sunday closest to Nov. 23.
This period is also understood by some as “ordinary time,” a period of the church year not dedicated to a particular season or observance. The word “ordinary” comes from the word “ordinal”, which simply means “ordinary time” is “counted time”. The season of Pentecost is often referred to as the non-festival half of the church year because during this time the Christian Church does not celebrate a major festival commemorating the life of Jesus. During the season of Pentecost, the Christian Church focuses on the teachings of Jesus.
Sunday school will meet Oct. 22! – Godly Play will be offered in the Children’s Chapel beneath the Nave. Join us between 10:15 am until the Peace. We resume our usual third Sunday of the month schedule in November. All children are welcome!
