Multiple Rite II worship options: Saturday 5:30 p.m. (at times contemporary/Taize), Sunday: 8AM music-free; 10AM traditional music with choir, bells & organ. Parishioners of all ages! We care for each other. Our signature coffee hour incorporates newcomers. We are ministry-oriented: faith becomes action as we share our talents with loving service. One campus with two beautiful church buildings, recently updated facilities. Our 316-year history gives us confidence that God is not done with us yet.

Like many churches, membership is down from 10 years ago. Over the past three years, we have seen growth in young families and we continue increasing membership. Our financial situation is much improved, but still needs attention. Our parish ministries have been stable for quite some time. We recently improved our physical plant and wonder how best to use it. We welcome a new priest’s help in perceiving where we are being called as we acknowledge “To whom much is given, much is required.”
We value engaging, thought-provoking preaching, and quality Christian Education, for children, youth and adults. Priest, wardens, vestry and parish work collaboratively. Vestry members each manage a ministry portfolio. We enjoy many yearly fellowship events, and care for each other and for our neighbors in need. We seek a pastor who will walk with us, encourage us, challenge us, and care for us.
