Grace and peace to you in our Lord Jesus Christ!
I am delighted to welcome you to our website. You will find here a window into the life and ministries of Saint Alban's. We are a community committed to Jesus Christ and carrying out His mission. For members of the parish I hope that you will find information and resources to support you in your daily life and ministry. For those new to Saint Alban's, this is an invitation to connect and join us as a community that bears Christ's name. In other words, I hope you will make the leap of faith from a virtual visit to an actual in-the-flesh visit. Come and see!
The Rev. Sara L. Potter, Rector
Our mission is to be a community worshipping in the Episcopal tradition; devoted to God through prayer, study and action; faithful in welcoming the stranger; and serving the needs of our parish and beyond.
The Stewardship In-gathering for 2016 is this Sunday, November 22 at both services. If you have misplaced your plege card extras are avalaible in the Church entry way or call the Church office and one will be mailed to you. Thank you for your generosity!
Please join us Thursdays in Advent (December 3, 10 and 17) at 5:30 p.m. for Holden Evening Prayer—a simple sung setting of vespers in the sanctuary—followed by a meal of soup and bread and a simplified Eucharist in the Parish Hall. Experience some joy and spirit as part of your Advent preparations. All are welcome. There is a sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall to help with bread and soup.
For those who find sadness during the midst of the holiday season, St. Alban’s invites them to its Blue Christmas Service on Saturday, December 19th at 4 p.m. The worship service, which includes Communion, provides a quiet, honoring place for those whose hearts are heavy and a way to offer loss and sadness to God, while asking for God’s peace and healing.
Geared for those new to the faith, this service blends a meal, discussion and evening prayers by candlelight. The theme for the December 13 service is simply God. Join us that Sunday at 4 p.m. and each second Sunday of the month.
