You're welcome here!  We offer a broad welcome because we feel this is the way to follow Christ's example. The words of Jesus direct us to love one another. His stories discourage sitting in judgment against others. Divorced persons, and others who might have felt unwelcome elsewhere, can count on an open-minded reception here. We mean it when we say we warmly welcome single persons, people of all races, and families of every kind. Please join with us.

What is the Episcopal Church?  The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, a collection of independent national churches in communion with England's Archbishop of Canterbury. After the American Revolution, the Anglican Church in America needed its own name. "The Episcopal Church" was chosen because "episcopal" means "having bishops."

What do Episcopalians believe? The central statements of belief for Episcopalians are the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed, drawn up as summaries of Christian faith before the fifth century. Our faith and practice are based on three traditional authorities: Scripture, ancient catholic and protestant tradition, and human reason. (For detailed information see Catechism from the Book of Common Prayer.

Worship in our church. Age-old Christian tradition comes alive in our worship. The central service, offered almost every time we worship together, is the Holy Eucharist (sometimes called Holy Communion or the Mass). Services here are conducted using modern-day English texts found in The Book of Common Prayer, our chief liturgical resource. Congregational singing is an important part of most services.

The Bible in our church. The Bible is very important in our worship. Our services always include readings from the Old and New Testaments. Carefully prepared sermons are based on these readings. Episcopalians do not profess only one understanding of scripture. We are generally tolerant of divergent views and hope others will be, too.

How is God revealed? We believe in a living God. God was revealed to the Jewish people and then to the whole world through Jesus Christ. God continues to be revealed to today's world through many channels including the life of the church and the advance of modern learning.

Our mission. The phrase "A Portal for God's Peace," appears on the sign outside our church. To be just such a portal in our world is our mission. We hope that all who walk through our doors may find the peace of the Lord -- strength and happiness in carrying out life's daily endeavors. We witness to this phrase by striving to follow Christ's commandment "to love God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind" and "to love your neighbor as yourself."

How do I become a member? All are welcome to receive Holy Communion at the Church of Our Saviour. If you are a visitor from another part of Christ's Church you are also a part of our church. If you decide to make the Church of Our Saviour your home, speak to our pastor.

How can I get acquainted? We're a pretty friendly bunch. Say hello to the person seated next to you. Introduce yourself to the pastor. Join us at coffee hour following the service. That's when we all get to know each other better.
