EARLY CHURCH, 9:30 am
For “folks and families on the go,” Early Church is a kid-friendly and informal service. We gather in a welcoming circle around the altar for this service that includes music, a reflection on the day’s scripture, and Holy Communion. Lasting just 45 minutes, Early Church offers a quick, spiritually grounding start to Sunday morning. Sunday School (for K through 6), Playgroup for toddlers, and a simple coffee hour for adults follow.
HOLY EUCHARIST, 11:15 am
Our more traditional service at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity features music accompanied on a landmark E.M. Skinner pipe organ. The Rite II liturgy from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer is dignified and accessible. Prayers for healing are offered by an assisting priest for those who wish. Guest singers and musicians perform regularly at this service.
HOLY EUCHARIST, 6:00 pm
This brief, informal Rite II liturgy with Communion includes a brief homily on the appointed scriptures and provides mid-week opportunity for quiet reflection and contemplation.
We gather on Wednesdays at 12:15 pm in the church for our weekly Bible Study, a 45-minute exploration of a selected passage of the scripture. All who can are welcome and encouraged to join us.

What does it mean to be a Christian? How does an Episcopalian approach the Eucharist and the Bible? In what ways do Christian worship, tradition and community draw us closer to God? Being Christian is a three-part series exploring the Episcopal Church’s approach to fundamentals of Christian piety. This Sunday’s first installment, led by seminarian intern Chris Lee, will explore the past, present and future of Christian worship, with an emphasis on our Anglican-Episcopal tradition. Bring your questions, concerns, visions and hopes about what it might mean to worship God as disciples of Jesus in the 21st century.
“Book of Books Book Club”
The Book of Books Book Club will meet Thursday, October 4, 2018, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm and the first Thursday of each month thereafter. The idea is to read the entire Old Testament/Hebrew Bible between October and May, 2019. Those who join the group can read it in its entirety, read the essential stories chosen from each month’s reading, or read just the few stories or passages that we’ll discuss at the monthly meeting. A schedule of readings is available here.
Adult Education Opportunity for Adults during Sunday School
On Sept. 30, Oct. 28, Nov. 25 and Dec. 23 at 10:15-11:00 am, while children attend Sunday School, adults are invited to an in-depth exploration of the season’s Gospel readings and themes with the Rev. Craig Townsend and seminarian Chris Lee.
