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!
As a response to fear, uncertainty and natural disaster, we offer this Litany for Peace asking Jesus to fill our world and our hearts with the peace of God that passes all understanding.
"Lord, Teach Us to Pray."
Second Saturday Discussion Series
Like the apostles, we long to learn to pray as Jesus prayed: with faith, fire and fervency. Too often, however, we’re not sure how to begin, what to say, or even if our prayers will be heard and answered. This four-session discussion series will explore the four traditional forms of prayer: Praise, Petition, Intercession and Thanksgiving. We’ll learn that praying is a simple tool everyone has been given to enter into a conversation with God. We will discover the wealth of resources for prayer in the Book of Common Prayer and learn the basics for developing a rewarding prayer life with some down to earth tips from writer, preacher and pastor Max Lucado.
Join us at 9:35 a.m. on the second Saturdays of October, November, December and January to learn, share, explore and experience how a simple practice of prayer can enhance and enrich our conversation with God. There are no books to buy, no homework to do, and no attendance requirement; just a space to learn, grow and share.
