When we are at our best, worship at the Redeemer will send you out into the world uplifted in spirit, convinced that God loves you, and equipped to make a difference.
From Sunday after Labor Day through mid-June, we hold services in the sanctuary at 8am (spoken Eucharist), 10am (either Eucharist or Morning Prayer with full choir) and 5pm (Choral Evensong). The 10am and 5pm services are also streamed on the Redeemer Facebook page and on YouTube .
Our worship is where we return to God and gather strength for our work in the world.
FROM SEPTEMBER THROUGH JUNE, WE HOLD SERVICES IN OUR SANCTUARY AT 8:00 & 10:00AM and 5:00PM.
We welcome all worshippers in the sanctuary for our 8:00am, 10:00am and 5:00pm Sunday services. Our 10:00am and 5:00pm are held with organ, choir and congregational singing. We offer Communion with the wafer and the cup but not intinction at the 8:00am and 10:00am services.

WE ALSO LIVESTREAM OUR SUNDAY AND WEEKDAY SERVICES AT THE REDEEMER

We stream Morning Prayer services M-S at 9:30am and Evening Prayer Services at 4:30pm. Our Sunday services at 10am and 5pm can be accessed on the Redeemer Facebook Page and on the Redeemer YouTube station here. (The YouTube streaming is more accessible If you don't have a Facebook account.)
BELOW ARE THE SERVICES WE HOLD EVERY SUNDAY THROUGHOUT THE PROGRAM YEAR.
8:00 AM SUNDAY, HOLY EUCHARIST
This is a service of Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion) held in the small Morning Chapel within the main sanctuary. The spoken service is without music; it includes the same sermon as the 10:00 am service and typically runs 45 minutes. Children of any age or level of noisiness are welcome at this service! The service is followed by a Bible Study at 9:00 am in the Porter Room led by Rev. Mike.
10:00 AM SUNDAY, HOLY EUCHARIST OR MORNING PRAYER
This is the main Sunday service with organ, choir, and lay service assistants. It is typically a service of Holy Eucharist, with hymns, anthems, and a chanted Psalm. Once a month (usually the first Sunday of the month) this is a service of Morning Prayer with additional anthems in the English choral tradition. This service is typically an hour long and is preceded by a 9:00 am Bible Study in the Porter Room. Following the service we host a coffee hour either outdoors under a tent or in the Parish Hall to further connect with each other.
Children of any age or level of noisiness are welcome at this service, too! And we also have Sunday School and Nursery Care available during this time. On Eucharist Sundays, the older classroom joins us for Communion; on Morning Prayer Sundays, there is a separate service of Holy Eucharist downstairs in the Little Chapel for both classrooms.
5:00 PM SUNDAY CHORAL EVENSONG SERVICE
Three Sundays a month, our choir and Director of Music offer a service of Evensong, one of the great treasures of the Anglican and Episcopal tradition. This service is chanted by the officiant, sung almost entirely by the choir, and includes a sermon and two hymns; it typically lasts about an hour, On the other Sunday of the month at 5:00pm, we offer a Holy Eucharist service with choir and congregational singing.
SUMMER SUNDAYS - 10:00 AM
In the summer months (at the end of June) we hold one service on Sundays at 10:00 AM: a service of either Holy Eucharist or Morning Prayer, followed by lemonade and cookies outside in the Office Courtyard. We continue to offer Godly Play for children aged 3 through Grade 3.
Everyone is welcome to attend our services, whether you are a committed Christian, a member of another religion, an agnostic or atheist, or simply curious about what we do.
Our priests love the sound of squealing or crying babies in church! (Really!) You and the child you're caring for are welcome no matter how noisy or tired either of you is.
You are welcome to participate as you feel comfortable. While the bulletin and officiant may say things like, "Please kneel," if you are a visitor, are new, or are physically unable to make these motions, please pray as you are able.
There is no dress code. Many people in our congregation find it meaningful to wear dressier clothes for the Sunday morning service, but we are happy to see you no matter what you wear.
We joyfully welcome both women and men to participate fully in all aspects of worshipping and leadership, as well as in the governance of the church. Both of our priests (a man and a woman) preach and celebrate the Eucharist regularly.
If you don't see lots of children, it may be because they are simply elsewhere at the time! We have a large Sunday School, and only the oldest come up for Communion.
