Worship at St. Julian’s is deeply rooted in the historic, sacramental life of the Episcopal/Anglican church. The sacraments, like Holy Communion which we receive together weekly during worship, are outward and visible signs and actions that point to the spiritual truth that God in Christ is really present in the lives we live each day. In this sense, our worship could be characterized as traditional. However at the same time, our worship is profoundly contemporary as well, as we use language and hear messages that are relevant to our lives as 21st century people dealing with the challenges and opportunities of our own day. This ancient/contemporary way of worshiping is further expressed in diverse music and an opportunity to respond in silence, through art, and through dialogue during each worship service in a time called Open Space. Further, we are committed to both age appropriate Christian formation and worship services for our children. This is realized in a vital Children’s Chapel offered to families during the first half of our weekly worship service. The children will return prior to sharing in Communion so that we can all, as a whole community, share together in this sacrament and symbol of unity with God and one another. Moreover, if as a family you prefer for your children to remain with you in church throughout our service, please know children are always, always welcome.
