Good morning,

I want to take a moment and reflect on my weekend.  Personally, it has been a rollercoaster all weekend.  I have been inspired by many of you and how you are reaching out to others.  This inspiration is continued by photographs and inspirational quotes on Facebook and our Website.  In the same moment I miss you all so much, I long to see each of you.  I am trying to take my own words and reflect on them.  I see the pain and yet in the breath I am attempting to enable God to transform me.  Part of this transformation is to let you all know you are not alone.  We may each be isolated physically but we are not alone mentally or spiritually.  Please continue to reach out to each other.  I will continue to reach out as well.

Diocesan Update

Our Diocese continues to provide us with Updates.  To find the most recent one please click on the link below.


Readers Wanted!

Our Sunday Services seem to be going really well!  We are really hoping to have as many different people as possible reading.  If you are interested please contact the office! 

Nature & Nurture: Inspiration in Isolation

We are in NEW times to which we have to ADAPT. We have been asked to LISTEN to the breath of God in our lives, go forward with CONVICTION and WRESTLE with new directions. The process will TRANSFORM us if we are earnest in our efforts. This can be painful at times and exhausting. To offset that we are offering you a breath of beauty every day through Nature & Nurture: Inspiration in Isolation. Each day we will be posting a new photo on our Facebook page and asking you to suggest a scripture verse or inspirational quote that speaks to you when you view the image. We will choose one of the inspirations and post the picture and inspiration on our Webpage. The quotes have all been great so far and the choice has been tough. We look forward to more people joining in and making the choice even harder.

Beat the Blues with Bryan

By popular demand Bryan is going to host a hymn sing on Friday morning at 11:00 am by Zoom!  If you are interested in joining us, please email Archdeacon Katherine or the office.


We are encouraging different people to use different means of connecting the congregation.  Not all ways are going to work for everyone.  We are already using Zoom, email, phone calls, Website, and Facebook.  If there is a way you would like to connect please tell the office.  We will make suggestions to our leadership and see who may be able to help.  Maybe you are interested in starting a Parish Connector group of your own!  Tell us if you are!

Diane can help people to connect with us on Zoom.  If you need assistance, please contact the office.
