Visiting for the first time?

Everyone is welcomed in worship at St. Charles as we strive to create a warm and open place in which all can come to encounter God. Joining us for the first time? Many ask what they should wear to worship. We are an eclectic church in most every way. On Sunday mornings you will find some people in casual attire while others are "dressed to the nines."

Parking is available along both sides of St. Charles and Broadway and along all side streets in the area. Read below for information about our 9:45 a.m. discipleship hour and 11:00 worship service.


Sunday Morning

Sunday School at 9:45 a.m.
St. Charles values astute, engaging study of the Christian faith. Sunday morning Bible study offers a great opportunity for participants of all ages to dialog in small-group settings. A full listing of classes is available here:

Coffee and Conversation:
An informal gathering in Room 219 of lectionary study and current events. Discussion led by Associate Pastor Tim Moon

Worship at 11:00 a.m.

Worship at St. Charles is classical, ecumenical, and thoughtful. We follow the Christian year and, usually, the Revised Common Lectionary readings for the day. Clergy and lay readers participate in leadership, and children are included in every aspect of the worship hour. For over twenty years we have enjoyed a Jazz Hymns service on the last Sunday before Mardi Gras (Thoth Sunday). The St. Charles choir twice annually leads the morning with an entirely choral worship.
