New Rite Place Liturgy at 9:00am

Our new family worship service – The Rite Place Liturgy – welcomes you on Sundays at 9:00am!

The Rite Place Liturgy is a contemporary, simple, and joyous celebration of Holy Communion, especially for the youngest among us and those who may be new to church. We invite you to join us!

The way we do the new service is a little different. We begin in the chapel and then process to the sanctuary. Here is how it will work:
9:00am: (chapel) Songs and getting ready for the procession
9:10am: Procession to the sanctuary
9:15-9:45am: The Rite Place liturgy in the sanctuary

We have had many questions about the new service and its impact on our Sunday mornings at Calvary. We hope the following questions and answers are helpful:

Who may attend the new worship service?
Everyone may attend! Adults, teens, kids, families, singles, newcomers, and long-time members. All are welcome!

What about Sunday School?
Sunday School for all ages will meet from 9:50-10:20am

-The first Sunday of the month, everyone is invited to an intergenerational activity upstairs in the parish hall.
-The second Sunday of the month, everyone is invited to our “Second Sunday for Service” project
-The remaining Sundays in the month we will meet in age-grouped classes

Adults who attend the new worship service are welcome and encouraged to join the intergenerational educational activities on the first two Sundays of the month. On the remaining Sundays, we plan to offer a mix of social and educational options, or you may take that time to relax over coffee, or visit your children’s classes.

What about the current Adult class from 9:15-10:15am?
The traditional adult education class will still be offered in Room 101.

What about Junior EYF?
We encourage Junior EYF youth to attend the new worship service for the first two Sundays (November 8 and 15) to see what it is all about. Youth group will meet after the service during the Christian Education time (9:50-10:20am) in the EYF room.

Will Children’s Chapel still be offered?
Children’s Chapel will take place at its normal time of 10:25am in the chapel upstairs

So, overall, what will the worship schedule look like?

8:00am: Holy Eucharist, Rite I in the sanctuary
 9:00am: The Rite Place liturgy (gather first in the chapel)
      10:25am: Children’s Chapel in the chapel
10:30am:  Holy Eucharist, Rite II in the sanctuary

We hope this mix of worship services will provide a welcome for many new people. Please consider inviting someone to join you for worship when we start the new service on November 8!
