WE ARE THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.
 

First of all, welcome to our website!   My prayer is that, when you finish viewing the site, you will have found what you’re looking for. But before you look further, let me tell you a little about me and about our community of faith.   St. Francis has been my home for almost seventeen years and each year has brought new blessings.   The Spirit has been a mighty presence in this place and the fruit of that Spirit can be seen and felt when you visit us.  


As you approach the entrance,  you will notice two things in particular.  First, there is a large cedar cross in the memorial garden.   My husband Joel made this cross and gave it to the church as a sign of the Jesus we worship.  Second, over the door there is a sign that reads, “Enter a stranger but once.”  Those words need no explanation. When the Spirit is present, you will feel it.  You will sense that you have come home, perhaps for the first time, and the warmth of this church family will add to what you feel when you enter the sanctuary.


The blessing that you will hear at the end of every service says it all: 

 May the Lord Jesus, who loves with a wounded heart, be your love forevermore.  May the Lord Jesus, who serves with wounded hands, help you serve others.  May the Lord Jesus, who walks on wounded feet, walk with you to the end of the road.  Look for the face of the Lord Jesus in everyone you meet, and may everyone you meet see the face of the Lord Jesus in you.

There is a place at the Lord’s table for you.  And in the words of the apostle Andrew, to his brother Peter, when he had found Jesus, “Come and see…”

The Collect


O God, who for our redemption didst give thine only-begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection hast delivered us from the power of our enemy; Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection; through the same thy son Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.


The First Lesson (Acts 10:34-43)

The Psalm (118:1-2, 14-24)

The Second Lesson (Colossians 3:1-4)


The Gospel  (John 20:1-18)

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb.  So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”  Then Peter and the other disciples set out and went toward the tomb.  The two were running together, but the other disciples outran Peter and reached the tomb first.  He bent down to look in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not go in.  Then Simon peter came, following him, and went into the tomb.  He saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself.  Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believe; for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.  Then the disciples returned to their homes.  But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb.  As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb; and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying, one at the head and the other at the feet.  They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”  She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.”  When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus.  Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?  Whom are you looking for?”  Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”  Jesus said to her, “Mary!”  She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni!” (which means Teacher).  Jesus said to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father.  But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”   Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples “I have seen the Lord’” and she told them that He had said these things to her.
