We come from many different religious backgrounds -- some of us are "cradle Episcopalians" while others started out as atheists and agnostics, Methodists, Baptists, Lutherans, or Catholics. We've lived here all our lives, like our parents and grandparents before us, or we've moved here as children or as adults. We prize our shared delight in worship and community here, we prize our individual uniquenesses and our commonalities. We find, in the Episcopal Church, that we are able to be different in some ways but still be one in Christ.
We strongly believe that nothing can ever separate us from the Love of God in Christ Jesus, as Saint Paul said (Romans 8:38). We welcome all, whatever your past or present, to come and worship with us, to learn with us, to pray with us, and to grow with us! And -- perhaps -- we can worship with you, learn with you, pray with you, and grow with you, as well!
On this website, you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing.
