The Anglican worship tradition is highly-dependent on involvement of lay persons, well-founded in the Christian faith.
The Lay Eucharistic Minister (LEM) assists the priest during the worship service by reading the first two readings and the psalm.
You can get even more from the sermon by reviewing the readings ahead of time and asking God to open your mind and heart to hear what God is saying to you.
All services listed below include communion at 10:30 am on Sunday. The exception is on Christmas Eve. There will be two services on Christmas Eve-- Christmas Eve morning will be a reading of lessons and carols with no communion. The second service at 3pm will include both readings and the Lord's Supper with communion.
