Prayer – in our search for a new Priest-in-Charge: Everliving God, we pray for the life of our parish in this transition as we search for a new Priest. May we continue to be guided by your love and strengthened in our mission to serve you through ministry, fellowship and worship. We continue to trust that your hand is in our search process to bring someone who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries. Give us your grace to follow where you lead us, and grant us your peace. Amen

PENTECOST SUNDAY -- May 24, 2015

May 24 -- November 22, 2015

The Season of Pentecost are captured in the following poems:

He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

“Pentecost occupies a very strategic place in the Christian Year, for it stands between that half of the year that celebrates the coming of Jesus Christ and the second half of the year celebrating the creation and mission of the church. It concludes the church’s celebration of the advent, birth, life, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. And it introduces the observance of the “church militant”, as we rehearse and encourage ourselves from June through November of a church deeply engaged in the world, bringing good news in sign, deed and word of God’s work to transform the world into the world as God intended it to be!”


Our Mission Statement

As a Christian community, we seek to share the Gospel by welcoming all people, nurturing them through Word and Sacrament, and equipping God's people to serve others in Christ's name.
