"Come Worship the LORD in the Beauty of Holiness"
 
   

 

Welcome in the name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

 

 

You're Invited

We invite you to come worship the LORD with us this week!

Our parish is blessed with wonderful church facilities that include a beautiful air-conditioned worship space that can accommodate 150 people, a small but functional Hospitality Room, an outdoor Memorial Garden for quiet reflective prayer, a Nursery, Sunday School classrooms, Youth Group space, a large Adult Christian Education / Bible Study Room, private Office and Conference space, a Playground, a Basketball Court, a large grass field, and ample parking. Our entire 4.5 acre church campus is handicap accessible.

Our 8:00am Sunday Morning Holy Eucharist celebration is a quiet and reflective service (no worship music) that lasts about an hour. Our 10:30am Sunday Morning Holy Eucharist celebration is more festive in that it includes a blend of Traditional Hymns and Contemporary Christian Music. This service lasts about an hour and a half and nursery care for infants and toddlers is available during the service. Our parish family is blessed to have a talented and dedicated Music Ministry Team who love to sing praises to Our Lord, and who also play various instruments including the beautiful Grand Piano located in our sanctuary. Coffee Fellowship in our Hospitality Room follows each worship service on Sunday.

Every Wednesday afternoon at 12:00pm we offer either a Holy Eucharist worship service or a Noontime Prayer worship service in the church. In place of a traditional sermon or homily we have a relaxed discussion on the Scripture lessons appointed for the day. These services last about 60 minutes.

Fridays during Advent and Lent we offer Evening Prayer in the Church at 6:30pm. The Service of Evening Prayer, also known as Evensong and/or Vespers, lasts 30-45 minutes. 

All baptized Christians who are prepared to receive the precious Body and Blood of Christ are welcome to receive Holy Communion at Saint Mary's. 

Please let us know if you are sick or going in the hospital, if you are in need of counseling, or if you would like Fr. Michael to visit and/or bless your home and/or your pets.

If you would like information about being received into this Church, or about the Sacraments of Baptism, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, Reconciliation/Confession, Holy Matrimony, Holy Orders, Holy Unction (Anointing of the Sick); or if you have questions about Christian Burial, please contact us. We promise to respond to you as quickly as possible!
