Throughout the season of Easter, we invite you to consider ways that you are lifted up. Fill in the blank: “I was uplifted when ________.” Maybe it was something you heard, read, saw, or even smelled. Whatever the experience, we hope you will tell us about it. To share your moment of “uplift” with the wider parish, please email the Associate Rector at

Spring Stewardship

Celebrate the risen Christ in Eastertide with thanksgiving for God’s abundant blessing! Reflect on how your stewardship practice this year is bearing fruit in your life of faith.
  • If you have not yet made a 2019 commitment, we ask you to join with the many households that have.
  • If you find, like the city blooming outside, that your resources allow you to grow in giving, please consider this mid-year opportunity to increase your commitment through the rest of 2019.

Fill out a pledge card at church, submit your pledge online, or by email the Rector at
