Worship

Congregation

   Give them an inquiring and discerning heart,

            the courage to will and persevere,

              a spirit to know and to love you,

                and the gift of joy and wonder

                         in all your works.

               The Book of Common Prayer

 

The mission of the Church is to bring us into spiritual practices that shape us into a people of discernment, courage, and perseverance.  Lovers and friends of God.  Open to joy.  Given to awe and wonder.

 

Spiritual Practices

The spiritual practices that nurture us as an Episcopal people are grounded in two practices: one weekly, one daily.  The first is Holy Communion (the Eucharist, also called “The Liturgy).”  The second is the Daily Office.  The other spiritual practices of Community, Reflection (our capacity to be silent and still; to listen to our life; and to learn from our experience as we connect our life to the life of God), and Service flow out of the rhythm daily and weekly prayer.

 

Every Sunday we celebrate Holy Communion using the various prayers taken from the Book of Common Prayer.  Our 8:00 service is more grounded in the beauty of quiet.  The 10:00 liturgy incorporates more of the joyful prayer of music and children and youth.

Here are some of the different ways to participate more actively in the liturgy, which means “the work of the people”.  Once you feel comfortable with the rhythms of the liturgy itself consider becoming a part of our Worship Team.

 

Worship Team

The worship team consists of:

  • Choir– lend their voices and musical talent to lead the congregation in ancient and contemporary songs of praise.
  • Subdeacon– assists the celebrant
  • Eucharistic minister– reads the first lesson and serves the chalice
  • Lector– reads the second lesson
  • Acolyte– assists with the service.  Young adults are especially welcome.
  • The Altar Guild is a group of folks who prepare the altar and church for the worship service.
  • The Pastoral Care Team are folks who minister to the sick, home bound and in need. They may or may not be lay Eucharistic ministers.

There is always a place for someone who would like to become a member of one of the teams. Please talk to one of the priests or contact the parish office at 926-6450 or at office@resurrectionspokane.org.  We will connect you with one of the various leaders of Sunday or weekday worship who will happily welcome you and train you for your next level of participation.
