We are St. Michael’s Episcopal Church
We invite you - no matter where you are on your life’s path - to join our journey to grow in God. We strive to live meaning filled lives and make a positive difference in the world. Come and be a part of us while we seek to know and love Christ better. You may be the right person to help us grow, while we may be the community to help you find what you are seeking. This is a safe place for children and young people; we practice the Episcopal Church's Safe Church guidelines.
We belong to God
We experience this relationship through worship, connection with each other, and serving others. Our worship is focused on the Word and the coming together to offer ourselves to God in the sacred meal with thanksgiving. St. Michael's fellowship is inclusive with room for all our members to be together centered in loving and caring for each other and welcoming visitors. We live our faith by serving the community as agreed upon in the Baptismal covenant, seeking and serving Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves.
We belong to the Anglican Communion
which is made up of Anglican and Episcopal churches from around the world. It is a global communion of more than 80 million members in over 160 countries. Our roots come from the Church of England and we remain in this communion of diverse churches and beliefs.
