Our parish is made up of individuals with diverse backgrounds that share their many talents with our congregation. We are seeking an open minded Rector, with a sense of humor, that can sustain and be inspired by our diversity while preaching with a clear and relevant Gospel message. Most importantly our new Rector will be a spiritual guide for our families as we traverse through life. We are searching for a Rector that understands the importance of community  outreach programs, ongoing adult education, enhancing  youth programs, and pastoral care.


Our goal over the last four years, and into the future, has been to develop an ongoing youth program and to strengthen our Mission and outreach programs. We now offer Sunday School each Sunday and our Messy Church service is including families in an alternative church experience. Our Mission Work has expanded to include  the Dominican Republic and  local school children through scholarships, personal needs closet, and summer camp as an example.
