This is St Michael's Mission Statement, a guide in our understanding of who we are as God's people and how we live out our partnership with God. We are to be the hands, feet, voice and eyes of Christ. Our community of Christ is encouraged to go forth from worship and prayer to serve as Christ served, that is, to those on the margins of society, to the voiceless, to the hurting.
We try to have a balance between what we do for our congregation to enhance community and nurture faith and what we do beyond our congregation. Please click on the Outreach tab above to see some of the ministries in which we live out our mission today.
I can't even give special thanks to plenty for your support and attention in the matter of my VA interst and claim.
Our style of worship is a mix of tradition elements and contemporary. We sing the beloved old hymns, traditional style hymns, plus songs that are upbeat that get the feet tapping and the soul stirring.
St Michael follows a liturgical calendar, recognizing the traditional season of the church years beginning with Advent and ending with Pentecost. Each season uses a different color of altar hangings, called paraments, that help set a tone for worship. For instance, the color for Good Friday is black, for Christmas, white.
