Parish Life
"I am the vine and you are the branches"



Parish Life represents the kingly or governing ministry of the church. Our ministry brings the parish together through fellowship and various festivities. We meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 in the Great Hall.

This year we established Family Fun Night which is the fourth Friday of the Month 6-9 pm. Exceptions are when the fourth Friday falls close to a major holiday such as Thanksgiving and Christmas at which time the date will be adjusted for parishioners’ convenience.
