Grace and Peace in the name of
Jesus Christ! The Church's primary task is to fulfill Jesus'
call to "go therefore and make disciples." At Saint Francis,
we are embracing this call by serving Christ and the
surrounding community through acts of worship, compassion,
and teaching. We encourage a sense of belonging and mutual
service within our fellowship. Family, youth and children's
ministries, short and long-term educational opportunities
and meaningful worship are all part of our life together.
Wherever you are in your
spiritual journey, we are ready to welcome you to our St.
Come visit us!
