Welcome Visitors & Newcomers

First, thank you for worshipping with us! We know visiting for the first time can be daunting and worship in the Episcopal Church can be unfamiliar to some. It takes some courage to attend that first time. We are grateful for your presence, whether you are passing through town on vacation, visiting family, or looking for a spiritual home. We trust God will draw near to you as you draw near to God.
