I’m New

Whether you are new to the area, wanting to return to church, feeling drawn to pray and know God more deeply, or simply curious, know that you are welcome. You’ll find others who are new, people who have come after a long time away from any church, and life-long Episcopalians. “Church” comes in many forms at St. Simon’s, including serving community meals and the food pantry with the Genesis Center (next to the church), meeting with a small group for prayer, singing, learning together, and Sunday morning worship services. You’ll find a community of people who love God and strive to express that in loving relationships.

Sunday mornings, 8 and 10 a.m. – Each week, we pray, hear scripture readings, and a sermon helps us apply God’s word to our daily lives. We share in the sacrament of holy communion. At the 10 a.m. service, it’s especially easy to follow along, with responses and music on a screen. Don’t worry if you haven’t been to church before or if it’s been awhile – you’ll be with companions who are listening for God and praying with you.  

The 8 a.m. worship service is a quieter, spoken service (no music) and typically concludes by 9 a.m.; all are invited to share in a cup of coffee or tea afterwards. The 10 a.m. worship service includes music and lasts until about 11:15 a.m., followed by time for refreshments. Children are always welcome in worship and there are special programs for them.

Locate St. Simon’s

If you have questions about the church – St. Simon’s, in particular, or questions about Christianity or how we express that in the Episcopal Church – you are invited to contact the priest, The Rev. Twila Smith.
