St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church
Mission and Beliefs
Welcome. We invite you to learn more about us. In what follows, you will find our Mission Statement, Vision and a summary of our life as a Christian community and how that is represented in our worship, buildings, and grounds.
We are a community which gathers regularly to celebrate our life in Christ and to be nurtured by the word and sacraments, seeking continually to deepen our understanding of our faith through serious theological inquiry, that we may be more fully equipped as we reach out in service to a world in need to make the love of God visible, tangible and real.
St. Francis will be known as a family inspiring spiritual growth, worship, education, children, and outreach in beautiful surroundings.
Who are we?
We gather each Sunday to celebrate the Holy Eucharist in a worship setting that is casual yet reverent, where Christ is the center of our spiritual life, and where we are committed to open communion for all baptized Christians in a welcoming circle of fellowship. We believe that creating and maintaining strong, viable youth programs are essential to growth and stability. We are dedicated in our support for outreach ministries, contributing at least 10% of our annual budget to Christian charities locally and abroad. We also invite you to join us in our weekly opportunities for theological study, reflection, and lively discussion of the Scriptures and other literature that contribute to the dynamic Christian faith conversation. We especially welcome all who bring a different point of view to our reflection as we search for a common truth through our theological diversity. The community of St. Francis welcomes you without concern for race, color, ethnic or national origin, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, or age. We invite you to get to know us and see if you might find your spiritual home among us in this part of the Body of Christ.
