What to Expect on Sundays

Christ the King-Epiphany is grounded in the Lutheran and Episcopal traditions, as well as enriched by those who have come to us from various faith traditions. We invite you to join us for worship.

When do you worship?
Sunday service is at 10:00 a.m. via ZOOM. Please contact our office at (413 596-3045) or email office@ctkepiphany.org for link information.

What is worship like? (How long does it last?!)
Our Sunday worship observes the rich tradition of the Christian church: we read from Scripture, hear a sermon, sing hymns and songs, pray for one another and those in need, celebrate Holy Communion, and go forth to serve. Worship generally lasts one hour. Following worship, join us for coffee and light snacks.

Are there special ministries for children?
Yes. On Sunday mornings (September-June), children in preschool through middle school participate in a Sunday School program. Children of all ages are welcome in worship and, if you choose, nursery care is provided during worship for children 5 years old and younger.

Can I receive Holy Communion?
We celebrate Holy Communion each and every week. All baptized Christians, from any tradition or denomination, are welcome to receive, and guidance is provided in the bulletin. If you don’t wish to receive communion, you can still participate by coming forward for a blessing from the pastor. If you wish to receive communion but are unable to walk forward, please let an usher know, and the communion assistants will come to you.

Is there an offering?
Christ the King-Epiphany sustains its ministries and supports ministries in our community and throughout our world through the regular giving of its members and friends. Financial stewardship is an opportunity to respond to the gift of God’s abundance by giving back to God through financial support of the church. Just before Holy Communion, the ushers will collect an offering. We certainly don’t expect newcomers to put anything in the offering plate; this is completely up to you.

What should I wear?
On any given Sunday you may see neckties and dresses as well as shorts and sweatshirts. Whether you like to dress up or are more casual, just come as you are.
