Remember that we are still the church!

These are challenging times, but God is still God, 
and God is always worthy of our trust and faith.


For information and updates regarding the Corona Virus (CoVid-19), please see the CDC website.

We love our church!  And we hope that you will, too! 

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 are an inclusive community!  All are welcome here!

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!

What's on our Website? 

On this website, you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about our fellowship.


If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area,
we would love to have you be our guest!

Won't you come visit us soon?

When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age, situation, background, and present.

"May God bless you richly, that you may bear abundant fruit and glorify the Father."  (John 15:8)

The Rev. Evelyn Wheeler, Rector
