Worship at Resurrection
Our current 9am & 11am services are services that feel on the more formal side because they follow a more 20th century traditional Anglican liturgy (form). The services emphasize clergy leadership and congregational participation. Communion is held weekly except the 5th Sunday of the month when we hold Morning Prayer. The entire service is printed in a bulletin and is easy to follow.
The services open and close with a hymn played on an organ accompanied by classical instruments. The corporate nature of the church is emphasized as readings, prayers, confessions, and communion are participatory. Songs throughout the service can be played on the piano, on other instruments, or led by a choir or ensemble. Communion music is a blend of contemporary and traditional songs led by a piano.
Those who attend generally wear clothes ranging from coat and tie or dress and blouse to casual pants and collared shirts. Clergy and assisting acolytes wear robes. The goal is that the message and Spirit of Christ brings the liturgy alive enough so that even those with no traditional church experience will feel welcome, comfortable, and able to connect with what is happening in the service.
Special Services (Advent Lessons and Carols, Christmas Eve, Lenten Services, Good Friday, Easter Week etc) reflect the purpose and season of the service. These services usually reflect the great Anglican services highlighting the liturgical calendar they were created to celebrate.
