Episcopal Church worship services around the world generally follow the order of events or Order of Worship as stated in our 1979 Book of Common Prayer. Within the guidelines set forth in this book, a great deal of variation of expression is seen. At St. Andrew, we have three services from which to choose, each being different in style.

Traditional Service (Rite I) - 7:30 am

The Traditional service closely follows what is known as Rite I in the Book of Common Prayer. The language used in prayers, confession, and in other parts of the liturgy or order of worship is that found in worship service during most of the 20th century. The entire service is more traditional in language and music. This service has a great deal of appeal to parishioners who typically have been Episcopalians for a longer time and are comfortable with that which has been familiar to them.

Contemporary Service (Rite II) - 9:00 am

The Contemporary service follows an order of worship set forth in Book of Common Prayer. The language used has a more modern sound. The music sung comes both from a traditional hymnal and from a newer hymnal which contains a wider range of more recently written hymns. This service is kind of regarded as the 'family service' in that one finds all sorts of folks attending this service: young, old, married, single, children, and so on. The service is probably the most common style of that found throughout all Episcopal churches nationwide.

Alternative Service (Rite III) - 11:11 am

This is an upbeat, energized, and very modern service having a great deal of appeal to teens and younger families. The language is of today. The music played by a fully plugged in, electronic group is exciting and charged. Visual images are projected on a large screen at the altar. You have to experience an 11:11 Service to really appreciate it. Come see for yourself.
