HOW DO I BEGIN?
Attend a worship service.
The best way to find out if St. Michael’s is right for you is to ‘come and see.’ Choose from three worship services, each with a distinctive style.
Let us know you’re here.
So that we may serve you better please make yourself known to us when you visit. There are cards in each pew and two guest registers in the hallways that make is easy to leave contact information. We will give you a call during the week to say hello and ask if there is anything else we can help with.

Enroll in the New Connections Workshop.
This is a series of classes specifically designed to assist new church members. The New Connections Workshop helps you explore some fundamental questions such as: Who are you? Who are we? What is the Episcopal Church? What is the purpose and vision of St. Michael’s? How does one become involved in ministry? What steps to take for preparation for baptism and confirmation? Classes are advertised in our newsletter and bulletins.
If you decide to take the next step and move from being a welcomed guest to becoming a member of our church family, know that we are ready to welcome you as a member. The question of membership always begins with exploration. We offer workshops throughout the year and encourage those who are interested in diving deeper into their faith to attend these classes.
