We use the Rite II (contemporary language) service from The Book of Common Prayer (1979) in our worship. (During the season of Lent we use the Rite I traditional language service instead.) You can find The Book of Common Prayer online here or download a free PDF copy of it here.
You are also invited to visit Church of the Blessed Redeemer's Facebook page for worship videos, posts, and other updates during this time.
Typically (pre-pandemic), we worship together on Sunday mornings starting at 9:00 a.m. We use the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) in our worship, and sing traditional and gospel hymns. Our weekly service follows the BCP Rite II Holy Eucharist, which uses contemporary language and includes Bible readings, a sermon, prayers, hymns, and the sharing of holy communion. We also have a special time for prayers at the altar with the priest during the middle of the service, including the laying on of hands and anointing for healing. Guests, please note that our (pre-pandemic) worship service often lasts between 90 and 105 minutes. Following our Sunday service there is also a "coffee hour" time to enjoy refreshments and fellowship with one another.
