WHO WE ARE
Who we are
We are a bunch of baptized people who occasionally have our act together, often are a mess, and always try hard! We are kids and parents and single people and teenagers and grandparents and married people and divorced people and gay people and retired people and students and people still trying to figure out what end is up.
We care deeply about worship, preaching, and our life of common prayer. We love to sing together, and our choir usually makes us cry at least several times a year. Our worship is not stuffy and squirmy kids are usually the best part of any Sunday morning.
We seek Jesus in the community, where he promised we would find him. We care passionately about outreach. We work hard and spend a lot to help create a town and world that are more equitable and welcoming.
We are certain that God became human and is dwelling among us and that God's presence is, among other things, a great reason to have dinner together. We enjoy each other and relish the promise of gatherings we'll be able to have again after the pandemic.
We ask impossible questions of Jesus and one another and search for answers together.
What We Do
We gather. We worship. We pray. We celebrate. We grieve. We teach. We learn. We sing. We serve. We spend a lot of time together on the phone and the screen right now. We wait.
Our Vision as Episcopalians
At our best, we strive to share in God’s vision. And on our bad days, we let God dream for us and through us.
“God has a dream. God has a dream, a vision, plan, a sublime divine purpose for this world. God has a dream for his creation, a dream for every man, woman, and child whoever walked upon the face of the earth, and God will not rest until our nightmare is ended and God's dream is realized.
That's what Jesus is all about. That's what he came to show us. He came to show us the way to live God's dream instead of our nightmare. He came to show us the way to be truly and authentically and genuinely human as God intended and created us. He came to show us how to become more than simply an individual collection of self-interests. He came to show us how to become the human family of God.”
(The Most Reverend Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop)
