here in our church community.

soft drinks will be served.

St. Benedict's Episcopal Church is a place of worship and a community of believers where all who come
seeking God’s love are welcome. No one will question your reason for being here. It doesn’t matter if you
are unfamiliar with our way of worshipping. No one will stare at you to see if you are doing things correctly
(although your questions will be cheerfully answered).
You are welcome here regardless of your race, creed, color, cultural heritage or gender, and no one will
test you to see if you adhere to the proper (usually meaning their) moral code. You are welcome here even if
you don’t believe in God, but are curious about us religious folks. You are welcome to be here even if you know
you are a sinner (because all of us here are) and think that God could not possibly love you (because we want
you to know that God does love you).
You are welcome to keep coming here week after week even if you are not sure that you want to be a member.
Of course, we would love for you to become a full-fledged member of our community, and if you decide that you
do want to become a member, you will be very welcome.
