A Word from our Rector:  

 

 

We’re glad you found your way to our website. If you’re looking for a church committed to making God’s love tangible in our community - a love that does not discriminate or exclude but embraces and celebrates the inherent goodness of all people, a place where people are nourished by God’s word and where it’s safe to share doubts and grapple with tough questions in an effort to learn and grow in the faith - you’ve reached the right place. We invite you to come and see. We look forward to welcoming you.  ~Peter

How does it work?

December 8th, at 2 p.m., bring a pie of your choice (store bought, leftover from Thanksgiving, we’re not picky!) We will eat and be together knowing that pie makes everything better!

What else will we do?

The outreach committee will bring supplies to put together Emergency Kits. In between bites of pie, we will work together to put those kits together. They will then be taken to the Garage of Blessings for distributions to people in the community experiencing homelessness.

Voila! Pie Day with a purpose. See you there!
December 11, 2019 8:15 AM
Beginning on October 9, we will begin offering a Contemplative Morning
Prayer service on Wednesdays at 8:15 AM in the chapel. It is our hope that
these Wednesday morning gatherings will provide an opportunity to pause
from our activity and busyness and reground our hearts in God. I look
forward to seeing you. Come and be changed.
