On Sundays centuries-old rituals and God’s message of hope and love combine to inspire and challenge us to face a noisy, complicated world with grace and love.

We welcome you to participate in and experience a transformative order of worship, beautiful choral music, vibrant congregational singing, and inspiring sounds from the organ. The order for the service--prayers, hymns and lessons—are provided in a bulletin so that all may participate as they wish.

At the 10:30 am service, children join the a member of the clergy for the children’s sermon after Sunday School, and then join their families for the remainder of the service.

Following either service, hospitality hour in the parish hall gives everyone a chance to connect with old friends, make new ones and weave more threads into the fabric of our parish life.

Ushers at the back of the church are available at anytime to answer any questions. We hope you will help us welcome you personally by completing the Contact Us form.

Baptisms

In the Episcopal Church, baptism is the rite of full initiation as a member of the Body of Christ and into the life of the church. This momentous event represents a wealth of meanings, from being born anew, to living in Christ’s love and service. Those who sponsor a child for baptism or those adults who are baptized make life-changing and life-giving promises to God. 

Baptism is always celebrated at a Sunday Eucharist, during one of the five Baptismal feasts:

  • The First Sunday after Epiphany: The Baptism of Christ (January)
  • The Great Vigil of Easter (March or April) 
  • The Day of Pentecost (May or June)
  • The Feast of St. Stephen (observed) (the last Sunday in August)
  • All Saints Sunday (First Sunday in November)

For more information, please send an email to the office.
