"This is my home. All of the activities, all of what we see at church are a collective effort of putting our faith into action. We don’t see any bystanders here; everyone participates. It’s a humbling and wonderful experience to be part of this community.”  - Member since 1985

Holy Communion

Sunday, May 22
In the Episcopal Church, we don't formally observe "First Communion," leaving it up to parents' discretion as to when they'd like their child(ren) to begin receiving the Eucharist.  We welcome all who are baptized - no age limit! - to receive.  Some families do like to mark that milestone for their children, so on May 22 at our 10 am service, we will celebrate Holy Communion with a few of our kids.  Our Sunday School classes in May and June will be focused on Eucharist.
