Worship in the Episcopal Church is God’s way of saying, “Come closer.” When we come together in community, we take time out of our busy schedules to be still, to listen, to pray, to open ourselves up to God and each other. Our Anglican tradition points us to God’s presence through great music, powerful symbols, and sacred art. At the same time, we cannot forget that we are living in a world that calls us to act in the here and now. We look to the example of Jesus to show us how to take action. Our worship experience reminds us of Christ’s example to be compassionate, generous, always aware of the least, the last, and the lost.
Worship in the Episcopal Church is where we are fed in body and in spirit, so that we can be strengthened to go wherever our journey is taking us. We come together to be reminded that we are not alone on this journey.
Worship is the heartbeat of our community, and it can be a bit confusing. But the message is always the same: God wants us to come nearer. It informs who we are and how we care for each other, our neighbor, and our planet.
