Morning Prayer, Live!

The Rev. Dr. Cheryl McFadden‘s favorite website for praying the Daily Office Service is dailyoffice.org. You can participate in Morning Prayer live session at 7 and 9 am, listen to a recording of it, or pray it on your own. (Evening Prayer is not offered live but you can pray it on your own.) Praying the Daily Office is spiritually rewarding.

Listen to our sermons

Listen to the Music
Music can provide comfort in times of stress. Click on titles below to listen to recordings compiled by Christ Church Music. Hearing is believing!  
A note from Director of Music, Jamie Hitel:
“I hope this recording of Fidelis, the third of Four Organ Improvisations by Percy Whitlock, helps to soothe the soul. The music is calm, with a touch of melancholy. Its title is the Latin word for ‘faithful’, evocative of the calm confidence with which we are blessed through faith in Christ. The music was recorded on my house organ, built by the Dutch company Eminent.”
