St. Michaels Episcopal Church is a family devoted to living out our faith and sharing our lives together. Together we learn, serve, worship, pray and support one another. The waters of Baptism, and a commitment to following the way of Jesus bind us together. In that respect we are committed to opening our hearts and lives to all people who feel called to be part of our community.

Our principles are inspired by the message of Christ, meaning all are welcome here. Whatever your background, history or lifestyle, and whichever path you choose to commune with God, we believe that Jesus unites us all and makes us part of a greater family, one that is ever-connected by love.

We hope you will join us and learn more about what it is to be connected to the love of Christ through St. Michael’s. to be directed to our Welcome page.

Covid Precautions & Guidelines

Throughout the pandemic St. Michaels has updates our safety guidelines and best practices several times. We kindly ask that if you are not feeling well or have any cold/flu/covid-like symptoms, please join us online to worship and refrain from coming in-person. Currently masks are optional indoors. However, our nursery staff and volunteers will wear masks while working with children. To help others understand your comfortability with interacting with others we have green/yellow/red bracelets available in the Gathering Space that can be used to help provide a non-verbal communication . We also have 8 high-flow HEPA air cleaners throughout the building to increase air flow and clean the air. Weve also shifted to intinction only for Communion and ask that you dip your Communion wafer in the wine, instead of drinking from the chalice. If you have any questions about our current community covenant, please contact a member of the clergy and we will be happy to answer any questions you have. Thank you for caring for one another.

Reflecting The Fullness Of Gods People

Joshua B. Kulak, PhD

We are old and young, hopeful and cynical, agnostic and certain, skeptics and long-time Christians. Most of us prefer jeans to suits, and its okay to drink your coffee in church.

We are a fully LGBTQ+ affirming congregation. Everyone is welcome to participate fully in our communal life and may take on leadership positions, be married, and receive all the means of grace available to all members of the community.

The church building, including the altar where we share the bread and wine of Holy Communion each week, is wheelchair accessible. We seek to remove every barrier to full participation in our common life.
