Welcome to St. Mary's
Welcome. You’ve found home – a church home – where whatever your background, however you see God today, no matter how challenging your journey is right now, you are welcome. At St. Mary’s, we strive to be a welcoming and safe place for all people. You will encounter the unconditional love of God and the fellowship of friends right here. We’re a multi-generational faith community, living out the central invitation from Jesus to Love God, Love Others, and Serve the World. We smile a lot around here, and it’s authentic! We believe that people desire relationships over religion, and our Sunday services are joyful, relevant and hope-filled. And, we believe that fun and church are not mutually exclusive. Love and joy are the byproducts of life with God and with each other. Our congregation ranges from those who have just begun to explore their faith to those who have been going to church for years. Questions, doubts and dreams combine in our quest for the holy. Come see and experience the beauty and love of Christ with us. Welcome home!
Our Journey Through Lent: He Chose the Nails
Every gift from God reveals his love, but no gift reveals his love more than the gifts of the cross. In this five-session video Bible study and discussion, join pastor and spiritual guide Max Lucado and Fr. Scott as they explore the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross, but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brow. The nails that tore his flesh. The seamless robe that he removed for us. The empty tomb where he forever defeated sin and death. These were gifts he didn’t have to give. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet God did so much more. So, as we ponder these gifts, we need to pause and listen for his voice. As we do, perhaps we will hear him whisper, “I did it just for you.”
Our Wednesday evening study and discussion series begins on February 21. A simple soup supper will be served at 6:15 with the video and discussion to follow. We hope you will join us on our prayerful and reflective Journey Through Lent.
