“You are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the Holy Ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the capstone. Through Him the whole structure is held together and grows into the temple sacred in the Lord. In Him you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:19-22).
If you are seeking a new parish home or visiting from out of town, we want you to know that you are welcome to join us here in worship where Jesus Himself is our foundation and the Holy Spirit is our guide. It is an honor to have you in our community.
Our Mission: Let us be a community filled with faith in God, love for our traditions and Church, and love for one another.
