We know that going to a new place can be intimidating and often confusing. To help you feel more comfortable at Christ Church, here are a few areas that people often have questions. If you have any questions about the church, about the Mexia area or about the Episcopal Church, please send us an email at church@christchurchmexia.org. We will get an answer back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to welcoming you in person.
Who is Welcome
Christ Episcopal Church, Mexia is a place of worship that accepts all people, despite differences, backgrounds, or status. It’s a place where the love of Christ transcends politics, race, sexual orientation, age, and income. It is a church that tries to reflect the teachings of Christ and welcomes you to join us.
Service Times
We have one Sunday service at Christ Episcopal Church beginning at 10:30am, that includes Holy Eucharist. The service may also include a variety of musical offerings including participatory service music and hymns and choral music.
What to Wear
Christ Church is very relaxed and casual. Our emphasis is on you having a worshipful experience with your family and the Lord. Dress for Sunday morning services ranges from very relaxed and casually dressed to a suit & tie or dress. Nevertheless, come just as you are.
What to Expect When You Get Inside
As you enter the church, there will be an Order of Service available at each door into the nave (church). This all-inclusive order of service contains the liturgy of the Holy Eucharist taken from the Book of Common Prayer (red) and the Hymnal (dark blue). Both books are available in the pews.
Where to Sit
You are welcome to sit anywhere that you feel comfortable; there is no assigned seating at Christ Church.
If You Have Children
Children are welcome at all Sunday liturgies. During the morning liturgy, children will be led from the church to go back to the Parish Hall for Children's Church. During this time, age-appropriate activies and lessons will be presented. Later, the children will be brought back to their families so the family can participate in the Eucharist together.
How to Take Communion
You are welcome at the altar. Come forward to the altar rail and take the next available place. You may kneel or stand. Receive the Communion wafer from the priest in your hands. You may choose to receive the wine directly from the Chalice by gently guiding it to your lips as the Chalice Bearer presents it to you. If you wish to receive by intinction (dipping the wafer in the wine), leave the wafer in your hands and the Chalice Bearer will assist you. If you choose not to receive the wine, simply cross your arms across your chest after you have received the wafer. You may then return to your seat. If it is physically difficult for you to come to the altar rail, please indicate this to someone and a priest will bring Communion to you where you are seated. All who want to receive the body and blood of Christ at communion are welcome at God’s table.
Children Receiving Communion
Children are welcome at the altar at their parents’ discretion.
Receiving a Blessing
If you, or your child(ren), would like to receive a blessing from a priest at the altar rail, come forward just as you would to receive Communion and cross your arms across your chest, and/or instruct your child(ren) to do the same.
Education Hour
On many Sunday mornings, we set aside the 9:30 hour for education. We have special educational sessions during Lent and Advent, to prepare for confirmation and on many social issues and problems. Check the service bulletin for upcoming classes.
Learning More
We encourage you to ask questions and seek information. We also invite and encourage you to introduce yourself to our clergy and staff if we have not already greeted you. We are happy to welcome you to Christ Episcopal Church, Mexia.
