Friendship Table for Children June 17 – August 26 During the summer, Sunday School is adjourned, but the kids through second grade are invited to join our “Friendship Table” during the first half of the 10 am service. The children are dismissed from the service by the priest after the opening prayer, and join us for Communion.

From the Office
On the Importance of Pledging: Did You Know? Did you know that every Episcopal Church relies on the annual pledges of its parishioners for everything it does, from paying the priest and staff to keeping our facilities clean? We are locally governed in this respect, with no assistance from the diocese or outside sources. If you would like to know more about pledging, we have forms you can complete online. You can also contact Mother Storm or Carol Burns our Finance Director at any time.
Ask a Warden Have a question about the church? Want to help but don't know what's needed? Ask a warden! They're here for you! You can contact Tracy McCarthy or Pam Heldman any time and they'd be happy to answer your questions.
