"Our Mission is to bear witness to God's love and invite, encourage, and prepare God's people to share that grace with others." 
Stewardship Season is Upon Us: 'Every Perfect Gift' Prayerfully join us as we begin the 2022 Stewardship Season. Mark your calendars: Stewardship Sunday is November 7. This year's theme is 'Every Perfect Gift', "We are called in this moment to reflect on the cycle of abundance sparked with the first light and made manifest in the Creation, in the calling of prophets, and in the gift of God’s own son on Earth. As we share our gifts through the Eucharist and through our service to the world, we participate in the ongoing creation of abundance and generosity." - Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift is from above...". - James 1:17
