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.
A time of renewal that opens our lives, hearts, minds, and souls to the transforming love of God in Jesus Christ through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Worship re-centers us, strengthens our relationship with Christ, and inspires us to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves.
With three services on Sundays as well as weekday Eucharist, we hope you will find the service that works for you and your family. Our 10 AM Sunday Choral Eucharist is the most popular. Many families chose this service time because it’s when Sunday School takes place; the outstanding St. Gregory’s Choir sings then as well. Read more about what to expect at a worship service.
We also have a contemporary service once a month called Rise and Shine, a family-style service for the young and young at heart. Typically held on the first Sunday of the month, Rise and Shine is conducted in Harris Hall concurrently with the 10 AM service in the main church. With contemporary Christian music and semi-circle seating, it offers an interesting and enriching contrast to the formal worship experience.
We look forward to seeing you at worship!

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.
