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

     Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; 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 (Isaiah 1:1, 10-20)

The Psalm (50:1-8, 23-24)

The Second Lesson (Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16)

The Holy Gospel  (Luke 12:32-40)

     Jesus said to his disciples, “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  Sell your possessions, and give alms.  Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks.  Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them.  If he comes during the middle of the night or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.  But know this:  if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.  You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.”
