I'm a Visitor
Are you planning to join us this weekend? In case you're a little nervous about trying a new church, we've tried to put ourselves in your shoes and asked some basic questions.
What times are your services?
Sunday Morning at 10:00 am.
How long is the service?
About an hour.
Can I bring friends?
What should I wear?
We don't have a dress code; we want you to be comfortable. Want to break out your Easter finest and put your kids in spring dress up clothes? Have at it! Want to wear something more casual? That's fine too. You'll see a wide variety of clothing choices at St. Cornelius. We try not to focus on that. Trust us, you'll be fine.
Do I need to do anything different if this is my first time at St. Cornelius?
No, just come along. There will be several greeters at each of the doors to welcome you and direct you in case you need help finding the coat rack or restrooms.
What can I expect to happen during the service?
We give you a cheat sheet as soon as you walk in! When you enter church you will be handed the day's bulletin, which walks you through every step of the service. The order of service is really easy to follow, but don't worry - nobody will mind if you don't know when to stand, sit, or sing!
Do I have to give money?
No. Our ushers will take up an offering during the service, but that is not a request for money. Our regular attendees participate in that part of our service, and see this act of giving back to God as worship. Please don't feel any pressure at all to participate (no one's taking notes, promise!)
Do I participate in Communion?
Communion is open. You don't have to be an Episcopalian or a member of St. Cornelius. We hope you'll take part!
