Featured live streamed services 2021

Beginning with Pentecost 2021, the Episcopal Church in North Texas is featuring a different one of our congregation’s live streamed worship services every week. As more of our congregations add live streamed services, we will add them to the rotating featured spot.

The Episcopal Church of North Texas is a new name for this diocese of The Episcopal Church that since 1983 has been the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. In early 2021, a secular court  of law awarded that name to people who left The Episcopal Church in 2008.  Please be aware that the group now using the name Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth is not part of The Episcopal Church, but is instead part of a group calling itself the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). This group is not part of the Worldwide Anglican Communion.  While some ACNA dioceses do ordain women, the ACNA diocese calling itself the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth does not. They are not welcoming of out LGBTQ people. They use a different prayer book. Their priests are not Episcopal priests.
Here is a list of our congregations that are affiliated with The Episcopal Church.

Ninth SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST, JUly 25, 2021

On the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost, July 25, 2021, we are featuring St. Alban’s Theatre Arlington. They will live stream their service at 10 am on their Facebook Page.  Download the worship bulletin here.

Download the sermon on Sunday morning here.

The preacher and the presider will be the Rev. Kevin Johnson. John Dosher is the music and choir director.

Their website says of their history: “St. Alban’s was the first Episcopal parish established in Arlington. There were only 16 in attendance at the first service on January 12, 1947. In those earliest days, worship was held in private residences, the First Christian Church, and even a local dance hall — which makes our current home at Theatre Arlington feel like a perfect fit.”

They began worshiping in the theatre in 2008, when the then-bishop and clergy left The Episcopal Church to become part of another church. “Worshipers from Arlington, Grand Prairie, and Mansfield established our current home at Theatre Arlington. We continue to be part of The Episcopal Church in North Texas. We are glad to gather at Theatre Arlington as The Episcopal Church in Arlington and we know that, wherever we worship, God is there with us.”

On the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, we are featuring the 1 pm worship service of St. Christopher Episcopal Church, worshiping at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, 5709 Wedgwood, Fort Worth, TX 76133  The service is live streamed here

The Rev. Bill Stanford is the preacher and celebrant. The musician is David Lindsey.

St. Christopher is one of the congregations that lost their building when the Texas Supreme Court awarded Episcopal Church property to people who left The Episcopal Church. They are now worshiping in St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church.

history

St. Christopher Episcopal Church was founded on September 15, 1957, as a mission in the Diocese of Dallas. Seven families met in a park on that day. The group decided to name the church St. Christopher, the patron saint of travelers.

As the newly named church planned to locate on Southwest Loop 820, this was appropriate as it meant a welcoming for all.

The first Eucharist was held the Sunday after the signing in the home of one of the founding members. The mission then moved to a country club ballroom and six months later made its home at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for one year.

In 1958, the parish built its first building at the Southwest Loop 820 location. The mission became a parish in 1960 and in 1961, construction of the present church and church school buildings were completed. The original church building became the parish hall, office, nursery, and chapel in 1973.

St. Christopher Preschool began as Christopher Robin School in 1960 and, until May of this year, held classes for two, three and four-year-old children.

In late 1982 the western half of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas became a new separate diocese that in early 1983 was named the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. The new diocese included St. Christopher. In 1984, the church sanctuary was updated with the addition of a narthex, church parlor, and choir loft, which also houses the 1908 Pilcher pipe organ console and its 966 pipes.

As our membership grew and our outreach missions increased, we needed more space for our activities beyond our weekly services. In 2008, a capital campaign was launched for a major addition to the original building, and in February 2009 the Family Life Center was dedicated, with a catering-sized kitchen linking the Parish Hall to a multipurpose space of approximately 2300 sq. ft., handicap-accessible bathrooms and the St. Simon of Cyrene Chapel.

In 2019, the church sanctuary underwent a major revitalization, with new paint, carpet and tile, an upgraded sound system as well as brand new pews, pulpit, lectern and communion rail to invigorate our fellowship and welcome newcomers to a refreshing and comfortable place in which to praise God.

In April 2021, the members of our parish were forced out by a breakaway group that left the Episcopal Church over doctrinal issues. For 12 years, the litigation over who owned all the church property wound its way through the courts. We won lower court rulings. But in 2020,  the Texas Supreme Court decided the breakaway group should get all of the $100 million worth of property, including our church.

We appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. They declined to hear it. The decision was final.

For now, a Lutheran congregation nearby has offered to let us worship in their sanctuary. We are grateful to them for their hospitality and for welcoming us with open arms.

Fifth SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST, JUNE 27, 2021

On the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, we are featuring the 10:00 am worship service of St. Luke Episcopal Church, Stephenville.  The service is live streamed here

The Rev. Bradley Dyche is the preacher and celebrant and the Rev. Dana Wilson is the deacon. The organist is Duncan McMahon. Read the text of the sermon here on Sunday morning.

Their website says, “St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is a parish that provides a place of Worship, Reflection, and Peace. We invite all people and wish to include them in our family. We involve and serve our youth and college students, as well as young adults and less-young adults who seek to learn about God and become a member of Christ’s body. We feed and help people. Our hope is for all who come through our doors or visit us online to experience the love of God and neighbor – no exceptions!”

St. Luke’s is famous in the diocese for its fabulous free lunch for Tarleton University students. In pre-pandemic days, they served up to 400 or more at each lunch. They will gear up to start again as it becomes safe to do so.

History

In a charming anecdotal history on their website, they tell the story of St. Luke’s:

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church began as a recognized mission in 1943, but that was not the beginning of Episcopal services in Stephenville.  In “Early Stephenville Worship,” Robert Walker dates the first service to 1888—when the Rev. W. W. Patrick became Missionary to the Panhandle of Texas; the next year he moved from Decatur to Dublin.  “In 1888 Fr. Patrick” (Walker writes) “found four communicants in Stephenville” (or, as Fr. Patrick spelled it, “Stephensville”); at that time, the town had a population of 700, and the mission theoretically paid $100 per year—but, like other missions in the area, it struggled financially and never met the promised amount.  Some years were bleak, for services in Stephenville were discontinued in late 1889.

By the early 1920s, Fr. Labough was in Hamilton: from there he came sometimes to Stephenville to celebrate communion.  Ferne Keyser, in her “Story of St. Luke’s Parish,” says five women were all the Episcopalians in Stephenville at the time—no men were members until the Everett family came in 1936.  (Later, George Dudley [“G.D.”] Everett was senior warden when Bishop Mason consecrated St. Luke’s as a mission. Still later, his granddaughter, Cissy Bramlett, was senior warden when St. Luke’s Church celebrated its jubilee, its 50th anniversary of that consecration.)

In 1924, a group of Tarleton students (“the first Canterbury Club,” says Keyser) met for a year or so at Tarleton, under the sponsorship of two Episcopal women.

In 1940, the Bedinger family moved to Stephenville—he was a lay reader.  The local group arranged to meet on Sundays in the club room of the Twentieth Century Club (at 650 W. Green, a building recently occupied by Pecan Valley MHMR and currently with that name still on a sign in front).  The first meeting was on 12 November 1940—but Mr. Bedinger had a migraine and couldn’t come.  One of the fourteen Tarleton students attending had had some lay-reading training in Galveston, so he read Morning Prayer.

Soon after that, Fr. Maceo was placed in charge of the Dublin church; since he journeyed from Fort Worth, he agreed to stop in Stephenville for services at the Twentieth Century Club.

In 1943, the Stephenville Episcopalians petitioned to become a mission and were accepted at the Diocese of Dallas convention.  (Although Keyser does not say so, according to Jack English’s oral account, the original request was to become Stephenville’s St. Stephen’s Church; but Bishop Moore, for reasons no one knew then or knows now, decided the name was to be St. Luke’s.)  Keyser does say that, to reach the proper number of members for the petition, they had to list all confirmed teenagers in town.

The first priest sent to the mission, newly ordained (as of 1942), was Fr. Harold H. Warren, who lived in Hamilton and served four churches in the area.  The first Episcopal visitation to St. Luke’s—for seven confirmations—occurred late in 1943.  Fr. Warren’s later career was a curious one: by 1946, he was canonically resident in the Diocese of Oklahoma.  In that year he was deposed by Bishop Thomas Casady.  He was restored to the priesthood in 1981 by Bishop Gerald McAlister.  (Fr. Warren died in 2007.)

The next priest (a deacon when he came, in 1945) was Fr. Menter B. Terrill.  While Fr. Terrill was vicar at Stephenville, the congregation purchased an Army Chapel from the closing Camp Bowie in Brownwood.  It was cut into four pieces and the roof removed to be brought to where it still stands as St. Luke’s, on the corner of  McIlhaney and Vanderbilt.  Ferne Keyser speaks of the members sitting on the stone wall of Tarleton, watching the church being brought down the street in pieces.  The church was consecrated during an Episcopal visit on 30 April 1948.

The early vicars at St. Luke’s usually served Dublin also—and sometimes Hamilton, when the need arose.  Fr. Terrill was involved not only with getting the church building for Stephenville but also with the covering of the wooden exterior of Dublin’s Trinity Church with sandstone.  Fr. Bruce Coggin commented in an e-mail about the latter, “I imagine it was a case of either recladding the little building (by then about seventy years old) or spending a lot on repairs and paint and ongoing upkeep.”  Perhaps Fr. Terrill was instructed by Bishop Mason to get the congregations into good buildings.

Fourth SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST, JUNE 20, 2021

On the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, we are featuring the 10:30 am worship service of St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church, Keller.  Read the text of the sermon here on Sunday morning. The service is live streamed here. Download the worship bulletin here.

The Rev. Paula Jefferson, assistant priest, is the preacher, and the Rev. Canon Ron Pogue is the celebrant. The Rev. Ayo Omoniyi is the deacon, and Dr. Joe Henry is the musician. Read the text of the sermon here on Sunday morning.

Their website describes St. Martin-in-the-Fields as “an open & accepting community where the love of Jesus lives and transforms through worship, education, fellowship & service in our church & in the world.”

History

In 1970, six families united to form St. Martin-in-the-Fields in a semi-rural area of northeast Tarrant County. With what turned out to be fantastic foresight, they purchased 11+ acres of land. We are now surrounded by new neighborhoods on the Keller/Southlake city limits. We have grown from a few families into a vibrant and nurturing parish that welcomes all who come seeking God. Come join us and experience God’s grace in a loving, inclusive and affirming Christian community. We are here throughout the week and every weekend.

Our place of worship and education for most of the first 10 years was a mobile home trailer in the middle of a cow pasture. Sometimes the coffers of this small mission ran low (or empty!), and paying for the land was difficult. Selling part of our land to help make ends meet was tempting. With God’s help, the few families who made up the congregation met each crisis, and the land they purchased remained intact. Thanks be to God and his Spirit in the families at St. Martin’s, the final land payment was made in February 1991.

In 1976, Bishop Davies gave St. Martin’s the historic St. Philip’s building which was located in south Dallas (we were part of the Diocese of Dallas at the time; the Diocese of Fort Worth had not yet been formed.) The church at St. Philip’s was lifted from its foundation and moved to Keller in June 1977.

Fire destroyed the building only a few weeks later. A trailer once again provided us a worship place. The St. Martin’s family worked together to begin another building with proceeds from garage sales, bake sales, bazaars, and an insurance settlement from the ruined building. Foundation for the building housing the nave was poured in January 1979 and the building was completed in 1982.

Beginning in July 1985, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Roman Catholic community cohabitated in our facility, and they staggered their worship services with us until they moved into their new facility in February 1988. The trailer, our place of worship for so many years, was sold in 1987 to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton for $1,500. This money was put into a saving account marked for the beginning of an education building fund.

In 1987, long range planning for land use was begun and continued in earnest in 1988 when we had a year-long stewardship program. All of the congregation was involved in planning meetings to our wants and needs for the precious gift that was given to us by our founding families – 11+ acres of land in an area of rapidly expanding population. 1989 was a very important and busy year. In 1989, we attained the status of a parish, declaring ourselves financially able to survive without assistance from the diocese. Our senior warden that year was Bo Foote, who was one of our first bishop’s wardens.

1990 brought the establishment of a Development Committee. The Committee was charged with taking the input derived from the past three years of long range planning and incorporating these ideas and our vision into a Master Plan. Our founding families cherished a dream of one day having a school at St. Martin’s. This dream was kept alive in the design of the education building with the incorporation of infant washroom facilities and expandable walls to the east in anticipation of additional classrooms. The north wall will expand to accommodate a larger parish hall when this is needed. Our “Prepare The Way” capital funds campaign resulted in $227,000 being pledged, and payment of pledges ended successfully in December 1994. Construction on our education building, which was the first phase of our four-phase, 20-year master plan, was completed in November 1994 and dedicated on November 11, the feast day of St. Martin of Tours.

Other additions to St. Martin’s are the children’s playground and the Memorial Garden & Columbarium. Both facilities are the result of the ingenuity and labor of members of St. Martin’s parish. St. Martin’s is a growing parish with a large number of children and an active youth ministry. At the other end of the spectrum, there are a good number of retirees!

As neighborhoods around the church developed, Southlake’s 12-acre public Chesapeake Park was built adjacent to our property. The park’s trails and well-maintained greenspace have added a vibrant connection between our church and the nearby neighborhoods.

We have not yet built on all of our land, and we allow the City of Southlake to use the undeveloped area south of our parking lot for soccer practice fields. The church master plan is to build a larger worship space on the south side of our property.

We are located in Southlake, but serve a number of surrounding cities including Keller, Grapevine, North Richland Hills, Watauga, Roanoke, Hurst, Colleyville, Bedford, Westlake, Haltom City, and Fort Worth. As we continue to build and grow and plan for our part of God’s work in His Kingdom, our history continues. Each new member is a part of the on-going story of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. May God bless us all! Come and be with us.

Third SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST, JUNE 13, 2021

On the Third Sunday after Pentecost, we are featuring the 11:15 am of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, worshiping in the chapel at All Saints’ School, 9700 Saints’ Circle, Fort Worth, TX 76108.  The service is live streamed here

The Rt. Rev. Scott Mayer will be the preacher and presider. The Rev. Christopher Jambor is the rector, and the Rev. Lynne M. Waltman and the Rev. Maddie Hill are assisting priests. Mr. Clive Driskill-Smith is the organist/choirmaster.

This service will be the world premiere of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, commissioned for the parish’s 75th anniversary by the rector. They will be sung by the Evensong Choir: Katie Dunn Powell, Karen Farnell, Philip Johnson, and Mike Farnell. The settings were composed by Joanna Marsh, a British composer who lives in London and Dubai.

You can download the worship bulletin here.  On Sunday morning you can read the text of the sermon here.

On the church website, the rector writes, “We, the community of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, are called to bring all people to a closer relationship with God and each other in Jesus Christ. . . Whether we are offering or receiving ministry, the connections we make with others bring us closer to God in Christ. All Saints’ offers many paths for ministry. These include programs and events that welcome both young and old, both newcomers and long-time members. From one-time opportunities to long-term commitments, there is something for everyone!”

HISTORY

All Saints’ Episcopal Church has been serving west Fort Worth for more than 70 years. The church was started as a mission on June 16, 1946 and was elevated to a parish church two years later.

In 1949, the Rev. Canon James P. DeWolfe, Jr. was called as the church’s second rector and held the position until he retired in 1984.

All Saints’ became the Cathedral Church for the Diocese of Fort Worth in 1986. In 1991, the church renounced its Cathedral status and reverted to the status of Parish church. The church celebrated its Golden Jubilee (fiftieth anniversary) in 1996. All Saints’ celebrated its 75 year anniversary in 2020. In 2021, the congregation was forced to move out of its historic building as a result of The Supreme Court of the United States declining to hear an appeal of the decision of the Texas Supreme Court to award Episcopal Church property to a group that left The Episcopal Church in 2008.

The congregation continues its faithful worship and outreach ministries while worshiping in the school chapel and officing out of a  building at 4936 Dexter Avenue.

Second Sunday after Pentecost, June 6, 2021

On the Sunday after Pentecost, we are featuring St. Alban’s Episcopal Church worshiping in Theatre Arlington, 305 W. Main, Arlington, TX, 76010.  Due to construction in the theatre, they currently are holding worship at 10:00 a.m. in the Theatre Arlington Education Building across the street from Theatre Arlington at 316 W. Main Street. The serviced also is live streamed on Facebook. Masks are required for indoor worship. In person worship is not held on the 2nd Sunday of each month

You can download the worship bulletin here. The Rev. Kevin Johnson is the presider and the preacher.  The musician is John Dosher. On Sunday morning you can read the text of the sermon here.

​​Since 2008, St. Alban’s has been been the only Episcopal Church serving Arlington, Mansfield, and Grand Prairie. Here is what St. Alban’s says about who they are: “St. Alban’s is an open, affirming, and inclusive Christian community. No matter where you are on your faith journey, our welcome knows no boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, marital status, culture, gender expression, sexual orientation, economic condition, physical or mental ability. St. Alban’s not only welcomes you just as you are, but beyond that, appreciates you, values your perspective, and eagerly wants to get to know the real you!”

History

“St. Alban’s was the first Episcopal parish established in Arlington. There were only 16 in attendance at the first service on January 12, 1947. In those earliest days, worship was held in private residences, the First Christian Church, and even a local dance hall — which makes our current home at Theatre Arlington feel like a perfect fit.

“​​In 1951, a church building was erected at 911 S. Davis Street. Episcopalians worshiped there regularly until November 2008, when the former bishop, clergy, and delegates to the diocesan convention elected to leave The Episcopal Church, claiming ownership of the property on S. Davis.

​”Though sad to leave their lovely church home, many faithful Episcopalians were determined to continue the inclusive mission and ministry of The Episcopal Church. Worshipers from Arlington, Grand Prairie, and Mansfield established our current home at Theatre Arlington. We continue to be part of The Episcopal Church in North Texas. We are glad to gather at Theatre Arlington as The Episcopal Church in Arlington and we know that, wherever we worship, God is there with us.”

“Trinity Episcopal Church is proud of its warm and welcoming environment. We are a church with young families, children, teens, seniors, and those in the middle. The one thing we have in common is that we are all trying to make sense out of life, and we believe that comes with an understanding of God. We believe the best window that we have into the mind of God is Jesus.” From Trinity’a website
