“Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.”
As priest appointed by Bishop Klusmeyer to serve Zion Episcopal Church here in Charles Town, West Virginia, it is my special privilege to invite everyone to join together as this 200 year-old parish moves through a time of transition and change. We are all Christians on pilgrimage, moving forward with a view of the coming “reign of God,” a time when our human longings will be realized and God’s love will be made known to all. Yet there is much that still needs to be accomplished. The good news for this local, uniquely gifted community of faith is that we seem to be going in the right direction. Doors are opening, new faces are seen, fresh discoveries are revealed, and new truths are being disclosed. You are cordially invited to join us, indeed everyone is welcome, because God’s table is being made ready…
It is the table of fellowship with Jesus and all those who love him.
It is the table of fellowship with the poor, the hungry, the scorned, and the
un-welcomed; those with whom Jesus identified.
It is the table set in the midst of the world that God loved, and in which
Christ was made incarnate.
YOU are invited!

Helpful Hints for Visitors
If you are not accustomed to worship in the Episcopal Church, we’ve put together these hints to help.
- Individual Hearing Assistance Devices are available at the entrance. An usher will be glad to provide you with one and show you how to use it.
- The Book of Common Prayer is the red book with the cross on the front. The page numbers in the bulletins refer to this book with the prefix “BCP.”
- The Hymnal contains the music for each service. References with an “S” refer to chants found in the front of the Hymnal. The plain numbers are from the main body of the book.
- Each bulletin has the lessons and Psalms for the day.
