No matter your step on the journey or place in the story: our welcome knows no boundaries of sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, economic condition, physical or mental ability, or age.

We believe that God delights in the diversity of creation and so do we!

What to expect when you visit…

Worship is the very core of our life as Episcopalians. When we gather to worship as a congregation, we experience God’s place and power in our lives and grow together as the Body of Christ. Grounded in The Book of Common Prayer, Episcopal worship follows a liturgical pattern with familiar forms, movements, and prayers that don’t change greatly from week to week during a season of the year.
