  • NEW! Bell Peals with Handbells

    Your Director of Music has been away learning how this is done, and we will all be experiencing it for the first time together! No music reading. Concentration and good reflexes are needed to do your part in the bell patterns. (Good math skills a plus but NOT required.) Youth through adults are welcomed to give it a try! We will make a visit to Charleston to see tower bells played in the style that we will use to play handbells.

    Fun and totally new. Sign up today.

  • Call for Children's Chapel and nursery team members

    Do you have a heart for children and want to be a part of helping them know God? Would you like to be a part of our wonderful rotating team of Children's Chapel or nursery volunteers.

    Please contact Madelyn at

  • New Altar Rail Cushions

    If you haven't noticed that our altar rail cushions are not in good shape, your knees probably have. The new altar rail cushions have been designed and painted by nationally recognized artist, Linda Mote.  The cushions are based on the seven "I am" statements from John and illustrated, primarily, with scenes from our church.  They are beautiful! (We promise that the new cushion inserts will be thick and better for your knees!)

    If you would like to be a part of this project or have questions, contact Mackie O'Keefe at 

  • Summer Eucharist

    We will continue to have Eucharist on Thursdays at 12:15 pm throughout the summer.

    The Rector’s Bible Study will resume on September 15.
