We are glad God led you to St. Gregory’s. Whoever you are and wherever you come from, know that you are welcome here. At St. Gregory’s, we are focused on forming a personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ—and with newcomers like you. We love our traditional worship style, but our services are also dynamic, inspiring hearts and hands to action. Below you will find information about worship services, becoming a member, and frequently asked questions.
What to Expect During Worship
When you arrive, a greeter will welcome you and offer a printed bulletin that contains the order of service and Sunday announcements. Please feel free to sit wherever you like. If you need assistance finding a seat, please do not hesitate to ask an usher.
The first thing you’ll probably notice is the organ music if you’re at the 8 a.m. or 10 a.m. Sunday service—here at St. Gregory’s, as in most Episcopal churches, we love our organ! The music connects us to the Episcopal Church’s rich history and reminds us of the awesome power of God’s love. You can hear our outstanding choir during the Choral Eucharist at 10 a.m. on Sundays. You will likely notice the prominent stained glass windows in the sanctuary as well, beautiful renditions of Christ and Biblical history. They are especially gorgeous in the morning.
Becoming a Member
Everyone is welcome to attend services and participate in events at St. Gregory’s, with or without formal membership. If you are ready to formalize your commitment, we have a clear, spiritually rewarding path to membership—let’s get started!
First, meet with Fr. Andrew or any clergy member to discuss our congregation’s mission and parish life. This is a great opportunity for you and the clergy to get to know one another better. We don’t want you to be another face in the crowd; we want to establish a meaningful relationship that helps you grow spiritually. Then attend a New Member Class, a relaxed, five-session course led by Fr. Andrew. He’ll explain the core values of the Episcopal faith and life at St. Gregory’s. The class prepares adults to be baptized, confirmed, and/or received into the Episcopal Church. For those who’ve been members at another Episcopal church, the class is a great refresher, and for all it reveals how things work here at St. Gregory’s and why our church is so uniquely life-giving.
For youth and teens, we offer special confirmation classes on Sundays as well as First Communion classes. Read more about classes for youth and teens.
