Why is the Episcopal Church important to you –the seeker, the one who is searching for a faithful community with whom to worship?
As Episcopalians, we are compelled to encourage open and frank participation in matters of faith and church governance. Episcopalians do not adhere to a strict prescribed doctrine; most of us do not interpret scripture literally. But each of us comes faithfully to the Table carrying our own questions and doubts and knowing that God will be there even when we struggle to find a common ground. Ours is the “via media”, the middle way. Welcoming all, worshipping together, sharing the Bread and Wine – the Body and Blood of Christ - even when it is difficult - because it is God’s table, God’s gift of compassion and mercy, God’s love that draws us there.
St Patrick’s and Lighthouse-St Nicholas are committed to being a church in the community, serving God and our neighbors faithfully through ministries that include prayer and worship, feeding the hungry, affirming the belovedness of all people, offering compassionate care, building community with joy, Christian formation for children and adults, and making great music in worship.
Come and see what God is doing here at St Patrick’s and at Lighthouse-St Nicholas’.
