Help make a difference by putting your Faith in Action
Faith in Action Suggestion for the Month of September:
We are called to pray, AND we are called to put our faith into action. We are called to follow Jesus which means we need to love and serve our neighbors in the name of Christ. It’s also our job to stand up to injustice and respect the dignity of every human being.
This month we suggest you consider joining with other Episcopalians who are urging Congress to act on Solitary Confinement. Join our call to legislators to establish a commission to study solitary confinement and provide humane recommendations for its reduction and reformation. You can find more information at https://www.episcopalchurch.org/ministries/office-government-relations/ and click on “Take Action.”
Help serve the world in the name of Christ...

Here's what you can Look Forward to Next Sunday:
This Sunday, October 2nd at 10:15am
When the apostles asked Jesus to increase their faith, he replied "If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you. This week we learn about faith which can be so powerful as to uproot trees and move mountains. But beware, the power that does such amazing things is not ours, but God's. We need to be careful of pride and remember that everything we are, all that we have, and each thing we can do are gifts from God. Come hear inspiring scripture, beautiful music and an uplifting message of hope and love. Come to church and get inspired!
Lots of great things are happening!
