ST. AGATHA EPISCOPAL CHURCH
W E L C O M E S Y O U
Is Wide Open
We affirm that God has made of one blood all the peoples of the earth and sent Jesus Christ to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near.
We believe our lives are guided best through prayer, worship, reflection on scripture, social responsibility, and care for the earth.
We like questions -They open the door to discussions. As members of the Anglican Communion, we believe questions encourage us to come to understandings about God prompted by heart, soul, and mind.

A message from our Bishop Miller:
“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122:1
Dear Friends in Christ,
The verse quoted above is one of the first bible verses I learned as a little boy. It came to mind as I prepared to write to you today. As you know, on June 18 Bishop Kendrick lifted all diocesan restrictions on public worship. This allowed us to return to indoor worship in our beloved building last Sunday. Today the vestry affirmed the guideline developed by the wardens, parish nurse, and myself.
At the present time we request that:
If you are unvaccinated or immuno-compromised, we strongly encourage you to wear a mask and if possible, to continue to social distance.
We now have permission to administer communion in both kinds. Those who wish to receive in both kinds are asked to receive by intinction. Please remember to be careful not to touch the wine with your fingers.
Returning to worship indoors is the first step in getting “back to normal” when it comes to our Sunday worship. Your vestry and I are proceeding cautiously, mindful that it may be necessary for the bishop to reinstitute restrictions in the event of a summer surge or spike.
Beginning July 4, we will return to having the service at 10:15am, as the principal reason for moving to service to 9:15am was for cooler outdoor temperatures.
I look forward to seeing you in Church inside the church building.
Yours in Christ +Steven
We are St. Agatha's
