The Value of Worship

One of the core "values" at The Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek is worship. Intentional attendance at worship, in particular weekly participation in Holy Communion, will be the center of our life together as a church. From this shared experience with God and with each other we receive the strength to live out our Christian faith in our everyday lives.

This week at Honey Creek I have experienced a different aspect of worship. That has been the daily singing at Camp Saint Gregory, at which young children are taught that they can sing. Every night at 9:00 p.m. we have worshipped together by singing at Evening Prayer. Last night we had a candle light service and the chapel was aglow with candles in amazing configurations.

Even the singing rehearsals have been worshipful experiences for me because "those who sing pray twice."

In peace,


The Rev. Linda McCloud
Founding Pastor
The Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek
