Worship is at the heart of Christ Church. Everything we do, from feeding the hungry to studying our faith, springs from our gathering together to give thanks and praise to God. If you have special needs, please let one of the clergy know how we can best include you in the worship life of our parish.
Sunday 8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist Rite I
Our Rite I service is quiet and contemplative, and it retains the traditional language of earlier Prayer Books. We meet in the side chapel year-round. available for the youngest among us.
Sunday 9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist Rite II
From June-August join us for worship in our church garden. Atmosphere is relaxed with children on the grass and adults in folding chairs. Music is often led by keyboard and guitar. Ends with coffee hour in the garden. Nursery care is available for children birth-3.
*From September-May we worship inside with full choir. In the summer months we worship outside in our garden with guitar, keyboard, or band accompaniment.
*An American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter joins us on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
Wednesday 9:00 a.m. Eucharist with Prayers for Healing (Chapel)
A short, quiet service for those on their way to work (or anywhere else!). Prayer and anointing for healing is administered to those who request them. In place of a sermon, we often explore Scripture through Lectio Divina or an open conversation. Tea follows for those who would like to continue conversation.

Children in Worship
Children are absolutely welcome at all services. Nursery Care is available for children birth-3, at our 9:30 AM service throughout the year.
Come As You Are
You are welcome as you are, and as you feel most comfortable. You will see a range of attire, from kids dressed in soccer gear to adults wearing sport coats and ties.
Special services as announced
We will sometimes have special services such as Choral Evensong or Advent Lessons and Carols. See the newsletter or contact the church office for more details.
Choir membership is an enjoyable and rewarding way to become more involved in worship, and to offer your talents to our congregation and God. The multi-generational choir includes Adult and Upper School Age singers. The Choir sings almost every Sunday at the 9:30 AM service during our church’s program year (September - May). Each week the choir sings an Offertory Anthem, leads a sung Psalm, and participates in other Liturgical music.
The choir rehearses every Wednesday evening from 7:00 - 8:30 PM, during the program year.
Extra Musical Offerings:
There are also solo opportunities. And, members and friends of Christ Church who are gifted with vocal or instrumental musical talents are invited to share their musical offerings during the liturgy and communion time. For more information contact Mr. Riedel (firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-429-8967).
Bell Choir Bells Make A Joyful Noise To The Lord.
Our Bell Choir consists of 12 bell ringers that play for all special seasons of the church year. There are times when we play with the vocal choir as well. Ringers should be able to read music and count. However, each ringer is only responsible for two bells plus their sharps and/or flats. The Bell Choir rehearse almost every Wednesday (in our new rehearsal space on the second floor).
We are always looking to add more ringers (an octave and a half are currently available).
For more information contact the Bell Choir Director, Karol Rehm at 262-241-4851 or at email@example.com.
