Welcome to a place of connection and love.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a note of thanks, gratitude and love. I know that this Thanksgiving will not be what you imagined regardless of whether or not you can be with your family. People will be missed. Yet we are continuing to find ways to connect. Advent will be full of opportunities for joy and hope and love. Please continue to find us online and know that we miss you and are looking forward to the start of a new year. It starts now! Advent 1. This Sunday.

COVID Fund

In the spring, many St. Michael’s parishioners and friends offered to donate money to help those less fortunate, include some who lost most or all of their income and/or were not eligible for federal funds. At the beginning, volunteers bought and delivered actual groceries to two to four families. Then, as the number of families needing help grew to around 15, the team switched to giving grocery gift cards.

WE live in love through our Baptismal Promises to welcome and respect the dignity of every human being, care for God’s creation, and engage in the ministry of Jesus to bring light, healing, and grace to our world.

WE manifest joy through vibrant worship, beautiful music, and the active participation and nurturing of our children and youth.

WE embrace resilience by learning each other’s stories, proclaiming the Good News of God’s unconditional love, and strengthening our capacity to hope.

WE seek justice by advocating for political change, continuing our work as an Immigrant Welcoming Congregation, and striving to understand our role in social, economic, and racial inequality.

WE are rooted as an Episcopal Church, honoring our traditions from the creative perspective of our community, learning how to engage the bilingual and multicultural makeup of our congregation, and seeking silence and stillness to glean insight from the Holy Spirit among us.
