Strengths

  • Parishioners who find joy in helping one another and the community
  • Strong Vestry and lay leadership, giving our rector time to focus on worship and the spiritual needs of our parish family
  • A dedicated choir and choir director, offering a variety of music
  • A kind and cooperative parish family who share their time and talents
  • A mortgage-free building that is well maintained
  • A hard-working and friendly staff

Challenges

  • Like many other churches, we have an aging population that will require new lay leadership and support for future growth.
  • We would like to find new ways to attract new members and volunteers.
  • We face the financial pressures of rising staffing costs coupled with a recent decline in attendance during the pandemic.
