ABOUT THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH

The following is a description of the Episcopal Church which we do our best to live into

If you are looking for a church that has
morality but not moralism,
the Bible but not bibliolatry,
law but not legalism,
emotion but not emotionalism,
Piety but not pietism,
tradition but not sentimentalism,
then you're probably in the right place.

If you're looking for a church where diversity is
celebrated and not condemned,
where thinking is stimulated and not discouraged,
where righteous living is of greater value
than right talking,
where BEING LOVING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN BEING RIGHT,
you're in the right place.

If you're looking for a church where Jesus is central,
a church that is not afraid to ask difficult questions of Him
and of itself,
then you are in the right place.

But one word of caution.
In such a church open to the ongoing revelations of God
people will constantly be required
to look at old things in new ways.

From "Those Episkopals” by Dennis Maynard

The Episcopal Church is a national church and a part of the Anglican Communion - churches with roots in the Church of England but each is autonomous in governance and leadership. We are a church which, like the Roman Catholic and Lutheran churches, have liturgical worship with scripture, reflection, music, and  communion offered weekly.
