What We Value
All People | Worship and Music | Learning and Growth | Serving Others | Stewardship
We truly welcome all people into relationship with Jesus Christ - no exceptions! We strive for meaningful worship, and to share inspiring music with the church and community. We encourage all to continue learning and growing in their walk with Christ. We feel action and service is essential to living out our faith. We believe taking care of all that God has given us - time, talent, and money - is our calling.
There are two main responsibilities of the Vestry, finance and property.
It takes lots of manpower to maintain our five acres of property:
Maintenance of three major buildings
Keeping the Outdoor Worship Center and its adjoining prayer path in usable condition and the Outdoor Learning Center/Chapel ready for learning or worship
Making sure the playground equipment is safe
Allowing the beautiful flower beds to grow
Mowing and raking the grass, and trimming the bushes
Maintaining the parking lot and signage
I have set up some mini, focused Parish Work Days to help with these tasks. Each will be from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM and all ages are welcome to help.
April 13 - Outdoor Worship Area
June 15 - Fire Ant Patrol; outdoor area cleaning, Holy Family Center maintenance
August 10 - St. Cecelia Building, inside and outside
September 14 - Outdoor super clean and whatever needs to be done for the Fall Gift Market
October 5 - Outdoor Worship Areas
November 9 - Main building maintenance and cleaning
December 8 - Outdoors winterize, Holy Family Center maintenance
Another way to help with maintenance is to complete a Repair/Project Request Form for an item that needs attention (ex. broken light bulbs, squeak doors, broken kneeler, broken appliance). These forms are located by the Parish Administrator’s door in the main building.
