"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Matthew 6: 21

Transforming Generosity is the theme for pledging and giving this stewardship season, and our journey begins this weekend. 

Important dates to remember -
Saturday and Sunday, October 20th and 21st - Annual Pledge Drive begins.
Saturday, November 17th - Harvest Dinner - Save the date and join us for a wonderful spaghetti dinner!
Sunday, November 18th - Harvest Sunday - where we will come together to gather pledges and work on getting some of our grounds ready for winter.

Transform your giving.  Transform your hearts.  Transform your lives.  Transform our church.


Have you joined us on the journey?


St. Mary's is at the beginning of a year-long Bible study on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. (with a mirror Adult class on Wednesdays at noon).  The text we are using to navigate our journey is called The Path.  

If at any point you want to take part and cannot make it to church, you can access The Path for free here.   

This past Sunday we read and discussed chapter 3, on Abraham - ancestor of a multitude.  The chapters are short and perfect to read as a couple, by one's self, or as a family at home.  And you are always welcome to attend a Sunday or Wednesday class.

Won't you come with us on the journey?

Update on the Historic Church

The Campaign for the Historic Church has been launched!

Phase One (mold abatement, deep cleaning, air scrubbing, concrete floor pouring and de-humidifier installation) is done.  The air has been tested and deemed safe.  We are once again worshipping in the Historic Church!

Many thanks to all who worked hard to make this possible.  And many, many thanks to all who donated money for Phase One.  Without all of you, this would not have happened.

Now we turn our attention to Phases Two and Three and the Campaign for the Historic Church.  Please visit this page for details on what is going on and to learn how you can help.
