We are a welcoming and diverse community of faith that seeks to follow the way of
Jesus Christ by serving and worshiping God.
- Worshiping in the love of Christ’s teachings and the Episcopal tradition reveals God more clearly so that we understand His call to us and live a life of faith.
- Every spiritual journey is unique and nurtured by curiosity about God and the
nature of faith.
- We show our love of Jesus through outreach to the world around us.
- Stewardship, the nurturing of our earth and the sharing of our resources and
gifts, is an essential part of who we are.
- An awareness of critical issues inspires us to align ourselves with the
teachings of Jesus.
- Opportunities for fellowship strengthen the bonds of a community.
- Christian education at all ages deepens our relationship with God.
Worshiping and Serving Since 1873
