Our time together as a community revolves around the celebration of the Great Thanksgiving. Also known as the Holy Eucharist, the Mass, or the Lord's Supper, the Great Thanksgiving is a time when we remember God's saving action in the world. As Christians, our understanding of God is rooted in Jesus of Nazareth, a first century Jew that we believe to be the dwelling of God amongst us. We also believe that Jesus was executed and triumphantly rose from the dead. On the night before Jesus died, He took a loaf of bread and a glass of wine, and attached new meaning to them. He taught his disciples that the bread was His Body, and the wine was His Blood -- together they served as the elements of a new covenant between God and the Creation: by the sacrifice of Love, the whole world would be reconciled to God.
Children are invited to attend Sunday School in the Parish House for an age appropriate Bible lesson. Our Sunday School Coordinator, Boo Garrett, has worked with children throughout her career as an educator in Essex County.
Formal Membership at Vauter's has two components: being a Confirmed, Baptized Christian and being a financial contributor to the life of the Parish.
Baptism is the formal moment when an individual is received into the Household of God. Baptisms are traditionally held on festival Holy Days throughout the year. These are joyful celebrations in the life of our community.
Marriage is a gift from God, revealing to us the mystical union of Christ and His Church. If you are interested in getting married at Vauter's we will need to set up a time to visit. Our wedding policies can be found below.
Funerals are to be a celebration of life, remembering that life doesn't end, it only changes form. This does not change, though, the experience of grief and the range of emotions it brings. We strive to support each person as they walk this journey.
