Eucharist and Evening Prayer

Every Sunday Morning at 11am the church meets at 205 E Baltic St in Nags Head for Holy Eucharist.  Our music is quiet and contemplative with flute and/or violin.  We sing in unison.  The service is traditional and liturgical, with reverence for our Lord.  We move through the liturgy of the Word, with scripture readings, a bible-based sermon, and prayers; we provide words of encouragement and testimony; and finally we come to the table together for Holy Communion.  The service lasts about an hour and 15 minutes.  Usually there is coffee and conversation afterward.

Each Wednesday we meet at the Johnson's residence (please call the church for directions) at 7pm for Evening Prayer and Small Groups.  We sing together a few Hymns from the 1982 Hymnal and use the Evening Prayer Rite II service from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.  After Evening Prayer, which takes no more than 30 minutes, we split into small groups that are engaged in scripture or book study.  These groups meet for about an hour.
