Following our Maundy Thursday service, we will "watch" with Jesus to commemorate the night he was arrested and tried. You are invited to spend an hour at the church in prayer during the night, watching and waiting as Jesus asked his disciples to do in the Garden of Gethsemane. Ideally we would like to offer prayer continuously all night and into the early morning hours. Please sign up for a turn on the sign-up sheet in the Fireside Room or via the link on our website. - See more at: http://www.stmaryselkgrove.org/fpcal.php?month=3&year=2016&day=24#sthash.DaxIO6rM.dpuf

"Opening Hearts and Minds to All"

St. Mary's is a part of the Episcopal Church and is a parish congregation of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, consisting of over 70 churches.

The word Episcopal means "pertaining to Bishops," and refers to the way the church is organized into geographical dioceses containing many congregations, with bishops as their shared pastors and leaders. The Episcopal Church is a member of a worldwide association, or communion, known as the Anglican Communion. Together we join with our brothers and sisters all over the world in worshiping Jesus Christ in common prayer.

 

Our Core Values:

CommitmentWe are committed to God in Jesus Christ, to one another, and to Jesus' mission to the world.

Care—We enjoy and care for one another at St. Mary's.

CompassionWe reach out in God's compassion to the world around us, including people from all backgrounds and cultures.

Celebration—We rejoice in God's love through worship, fellowship, and special events.

 

Our Purpose:

The purpose of St. Mary's Episcopal Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.

 

Worship Services

Every weekend is a celebration at St. Mary's! We are glad to be in God's presence and with one another. We have two worship services each Sunday, each with its own style:

 
8:00 a.m. - Holy Eucharist, Rite I
This is a quiet, traditional service without music. This is a meditative, beautiful service in the early morning.
 
 
10:00 a.m. - Holy Eucharist, Rite II
This is an upbeat service with a blend of traditional and contemporary music. Sunday School for children ages 3 to 12 begins at 10:00 a.m., meeting during the first part of the liturgy. Children then join their grown-ups to witness and receive communion.
 
Fellowship time follows each of the worship services.
 

Evening Prayer Services

We have meditative Evening Prayer services at the church building on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at 7 p.m.

 

SATURDAY EVENING (and Beyond) “COMMUNITY” SERVICE

6:00 p.m. - CommUnity

This is an exciting Saturday Evening service that uses contemporary prayers, music, videos, and skits to provide an additional sensory experience which brings the message of Jesus Christ into our present day lives. Holy Eucharist on 4th Saturday of each month.
