Come worship in the beauty of holiness. Our music is traditional, our table is open to all God’s people, and our sermons inspire love, mercy, and justice!
Join Us in Worship
Our 10am service is traditional, with beautiful music. We are fortunate to have a very talented music director and active choir with a wide repertoire. Our services last anywhere between an hour and an hour and half. We are steeped in the Episcopal traditions of rich liturgy, music, and imagery. Our nursery opens at 9:30am and officially closes at noon. For more information about the nursery, connect with Pastor Katie. Casual attire is welcome!
Please join us in person OR virtually for our 10 am Sunday morning livestream service. Our livestream link is on the front page of our website and on this page shortly after the 10am livestream ends. We encourage you to pick up a host to participate real time with the consecrated bread. After the service, please join us for light refreshments and coffee in the parish hall.
Our 5pm Contemplative Service (Zoom) has prayers, scripture readings and a reflection of the Gospel reading. Included in the service is music that varies from week to week. We also have a period of silent prayer. After the service, we have announcements to keep everyone in the loop and there is fellowship time for those who want to stay. The service lasts about 45 minutes. This service is not recorded.

St. Michael’s offers a number of opportunities for church members to join in worship. Check out the ministries available for volunteership!
Engagement in service during Worship through reading, serving at the altar, greeting or ushering all help those involved engage more deeply with the holy. It also is something that is necessary to keep our services going. Any and all involvement is very much appreciated!
The purpose of the music ministry at St. Michael’s is to provide beautiful music which will enhance the worship experience and glorify God by uplifting the hearts and minds of both the listeners and the participants, and to offer participants an opportunity to share their musical talents in a meaningful and fulfilling way.
A wedding at St. Michael’s is two people exchanging vows in the presence of God (as represented by the church building and/or the priest) to live in the covenant of marriage. Together the priest and the couple plan the ceremony so it is meaningful to the couple and the community supporting them. The Episcopal Church asks that the couple engage in pre-marital counseling. This is all to prepare the couple to thrive in their marriage and flourish in life!
Baptism creates in us an awareness that we are children of God and invites us into a community that believes in resisting evil, loving our neighbors as God loves us, seeking forgiveness when we don’t, living by the principles of Jesus, striving for justice and peace, and respecting the dignity of every human being.
The waters of Baptism symbolize dying to a new life and/or a cleansing of our hearts and minds. God’s adoption into the church help us remember that nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ. The outward sign of Holy Baptism takes place in our courtyard with our fountain water and Chrism oil, marking us as Christ’s own forever. I believe that the prayer over the newly baptized says it all
Heavenly Father, we thank you that by water and the Holy Spirit you have bestowed upon these your servants the forgiveness of sin, and have raised them to the new life of grace. Sustain them, O Lord, in your Holy Spirit. Give them an inquiring and discerning heart, the courage to will and to persevere, a spirit to know and to love you, and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works. Amen.
We believe that in baptism the bond which God establishes indissoluble.
Our next baptism is scheduled for July 3, 2022 at our 10am service. If you have any interest in being baptized or you know of someone who might want to be baptized, please fill out the Baptism Inquiry Form and we will quickly get back to you. Our custom is to baptize at The Feast of All Saints’ Day (first Sunday in November), The Feast of Epiphany (either the first or second Sunday in January), Easter Sunday, and the Feast of Pentecost. We are open to scheduling Baptisms at other times in the year. Holy Baptisms are done during our Sunday 10am Worship Services. There is a Baptismal Class for the parents (if appropriate) and God-parents and the candidate (when appropriate).
Memorials and Celebration of Life Services
The focus of our Burial Rite is to Celebrate the life of the person who died, help the family through their initial grief, and liturgically give their human life over to the care of God. We believe that life for the deceased has changed not ended. We try to help their loved ones feel and see that their presence continues after their death. Contact Rev. Mary for information regarding burials or for assistance in planning the service of a loved one.
