Sunday Services are at 11am. There is weekly Communion, using Rite II from the Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer. This service uses modern, contemporary language. All are welcome to receive Communion. People often ask us, but you do not have to be an Episcopalian to visit or regularly attend our church.
Who attends Annunciation? We are a real mix of folks from different backgrounds. Annunciation became known as the "Free Church of the Annunciation" in 1857 when it welcomed folks of all backgrounds into the church. We continue to embrace our "free" heritage and welcome any and all. About half the congregation is minority: either African-American or immigrant. We have straight folks and LGTBQ folks. Some are single. Some married. Some divorced. Some widowed. For a smaller-sized congregation, people are often surprised by the mix of folks.
How do we dress for Sundays at Annunciation? We are a friendly congregation where most folks dress comfortably. Other than Christmas and Easter when people will often dress up a bit more than usual, most Sundays you will find folks are in jeans or casual slacks. Some wear button-up collared shirts while others wear a nice t-shirt. If it's Saints game day, many people will wear their favorite Saints jersey. Who Dat!
What about after the service? After the service, we enjoy gathering in the parish hall for conversation, coffee, desserts, and community announcements. This is a time for people to get to know one another, hear how the week has gone, and share information.
