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 twenty 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 who walks on wounded feet, walk with you to the end of your road;
May the Lord who serves with wounded hands, teach you to serve others;
May the Lord who loves with a wounded heart, help you to love each other;
When you go out, may you see the face of Jesus in everyone you meet, and may everyone you meet see the face of Jesus in you. Amen.

The Collect

            Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations:  Preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

The Old Testament Lesson (Jeremiah 31:27-34)

The Psalm (119:97-104)

The Second Lesson (2 Timothy 3:14—4:5)

The Holy Gospel  (Luke 18:1-8)

     Jesus told the disciples a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.  He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people.  In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Grant me justice against my opponent.’  For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, ‘Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.’”  And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says.  And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night?  Will he delay long in helping them?  I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them.  And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
