What We Do

As Christians we believe in looking beyond our borders to our role in God’s world.

Who We Are

At Holy Cross Episcopal Church, everyone belongs.

We are a warm and inclusive community of people who strive to follow the Way that Jesus models and teaches. His commandment to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves is our calling (Mark 12:29-31). To us, this means everyone belongs—people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, abilities, ages and economic levels. It also means seeking to build God’s kingdom of justice and equity in the community around us. The shared meal of Holy Communion on Sunday nourishes us in this work. Along the journey together, we share joy, sorrow, grace and laughter.

What to expect in worship

We are a casual, come-as-you-are congregation.  

Most Sundays, our worship services begin with some readings, a sermon, and prayers, followed by Holy Communion (a.k.a. the Lord’s Supper).  This ancient ritual order goes back to the early church, and we fill it with progressive language often drawn from Celtic and other sources.

We take the bread and wine of communion by standing in a circle together.  All are welcome to take communion (or cross your arms for a blessing if you prefer).  We believe that Jesus turns no one away from his table.  However, if you choose not to take communion, that’s fine too–you won’t stand out. Gluten Free host is available upon request.

A “coffee hour” with light snacks and a chance to socialize follows both services—a great chance to get to know others!

Sunday 8:00-8:45 am  This service lasts about 45 minutes and is sensory friendly with a soft space, neuro-diverse volunteers, no music, and no incense.

Sunday 10:00-11:10 am  This service features music from a mix of traditions, eras, and different parts of the world, as well as children’s Sunday School (taught by a couple of our fun, loving, and fun-loving adults!) 

Children are welcome in worship at all times in either service.  We provide a “soft space” in the worship space with kids’ books and quiet toys—and kid noises are not a problem anyway!

Our facility has barrier free, accessible entrances, with a drive-up, drop off front entrance.

Join us also on Thursdays for Healing Prayer at 10 am and Adult Forum from 10:45 am – 12:00 noon.
