We teach “Included In.”

Worship

ALL ARE WELCOME

At Christ the Servant, we respect the beautiful traditions of the Church. At a time when many churches are abandoning the traditional rituals, we at Christ the Servant have sought to preserve many of them and to fill them with new life for modern people.

On Sunday mornings, we have two services. Morning Prayer at 8:30 AM offers a service of lessons with hymns and preaching. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate Holy Communion at 8:30 AM. Each Sunday at 11:00 AM, we celebrate Holy Communion, offering diversity in worship styles ranging from traditional to contemporary to Solemn High Mass on Christmas Eve and Easter. From June through August, we celebrate a single service of Holy Communion at 9:30 AM.

Evening Prayer (Mon-Fri). We are unique in the Washington Metropolitan Synod in that we practice lay-led Daily Prayer in our sanctuary whenever a regular service is not scheduled. See the Calendar for times.

On special Feast days and Commemorations during the week, we offer a simple service of Holy Communion at 7:30 PM.

During Advent and Lent (Wed), we gather on Wednesday evenings for a simple supper of soup and bread at 6:30 PM, followed by a service of sung vespers with a sermon by the pastor at 7:30 PM.

All baptized believers who trust that the Risen Christ is present for his people in the Eucharist are welcome to commune. Children who do not take communion are invited to come to the altar for a blessing.

We enjoy and welcome children at worship. They are important to the life of our church family and are always welcome to stay with you during worship. There is a children’s time during the 11:00 service when they may come to the front of the church and join other children for a special lesson from our pastor.

An optional nursery is available during both morning services if you prefer.

NOTE: We may not celebrate all of the festivals listed below, which are for reference only. Please check the Calendar for details.
