We believe that Jesus Christ came to reveal the fullness of God's love for us, and we continue to celebrate that love through praise, sacraments, service, and community.
Our church offers a wide range of ministry opportunities. Whether you'd like to learn more, pray more, or serve more, we have a ministry for you.
We gather on Sundays at 8:30 am for Holy Eucharist Rite II in St. Clement's Chapel and at
10:30 am for Holy Eucharist Rite II in Advent Church.
