What to expect if you come on a Wednesday
Wednesdays are a chance to gather and worship at St. Andrew's
We have a Wednesday evening worship that begins at 6 pm. Worship on Wednesday evenings is a bit more relaxed and informal than it is on Sundays. We meet in the Parish Hall in a semi-circle. The Wednesday evening worship is part of our Canterbury Campus Ministry with students from Emporia State University, which is only a few blocks north of St. Andrew's. We get plenty of people coming from the wider community, as well. We have dinner and fellowship following worship.
Wednesday's liturgy is nearly always includes Holy Eucharist (aka Mass, Holy Communion, the Lord's Supper, or Divine Liturgy). It's an ancient pattern of worship that blends readings from Holy Scripture, prayers, and communion. You can read more about Holy Eucharist on its own page.
As will all of our services, you can come in and sit where you like. In our services, we stand and sit at different times. You are perfectly welcome to do what the others do, or to sit and enjoy the experience.
The first time you join us, this liturgy may be exhilarating, but it might be confusing. We sit and stand, we may sing and say responses. It can take a little while to "settle in" to the rhythms and patterns of our worship, so give yourself permission to simply be with us.
If you have any questions at all, please contact us and ask!
Coming to a new church is scary. We know that. Wednesday evening is a good way to check us out.
