Celebrating over 70 years as a nurturing spiritual community in Christ Jesus, from which we go forth and serve God by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Rebuilding Together on Apr. 29 Rebuilding Together is a nationwide program where, in one day, volunteers rehabilitate homes of low income, often elderly homeowners. The St. Michael's family has participated in this program annually for over 20 years. In addition to needing volunteers to work on the property that day, we will need volunteers to prepare lunch. Sign up at coffee hour or contact Dan Ruff.
Thanks for Your Survey Responses To prepare St. Michael's Community Ministry Portfolio, the document that will introduce us to candidates, the Profile Committee created a survey to help define who we are and what we seek in a rector. The Committee appreciates the strong response from the parish to the survey and thanks everyone for their input, which is a vital part of the search process. Questions? Please contact the Profile Committee.
