St. Francis is a smaller congregation, a community of Christians loving God with our hearts and minds and souls... and our neighbors as ourselves, and following where Jesus leads. We expect to come here to worship, question, doubt, rejoice, and uphold one another in faith, and to find companionship in life's journey.
We are an open-minded congregation. Former Presiding Bishop Edmond Browning declared, "There will be no outcasts in this church" - and we seek to live by that statement.
When you visit, you will be warmly greeted and if you stay, we pray that you will find this a church where your abilities are also welcomed.
We have a number of children, many are grandchildren of members and come whenever they are visiting. There is an alcove in the church equipped with rocking chair, books, and activity bags. Children join the servers at the altar as soon as they are old enough, and participate in diocesan camp and youth events. A special time for youth happens during the first half of Sunday worship - learning a story or a song, and singing for the congregation.
The spirituality of aging is an important and natural focus of the parish, something we embrace as our baby boomers grow older. We are blessed with a large number of those who have entered into retirement and find that they have a little more time to be active at church. Our ministry to those who are aging also extends into the community through Deacon Ken's services at area nursing homes and retirement centers.
Whether you are traveling or seeking a spiritual home, join us, won't you?
