New to St. Francis?

If you are new to the Episcopal Church, our style of worship may not be familiar. We are a Protestant church that has a high view of both sacrament and liturgy, which may be very familiar to those coming from other liturgical traditions.

Eucharist and Baptism for us are at the very heart of what we believe about God and our relationship to God.

Fr. Mark’s Announcements

From Fr. Mark


1) Starting June 25th I will be starting a new 4-week study "How to Read the Bible." After the 10:00am service we'll grab a quick cup of coffee and gather in the Rae Whitney Library to talk about and practice this thing that sounds so easy but is actually intimidating for most Christians. This is a class for anyone who has ever wanted to get more out of reading scripture. No prior work needed, and there will be plenty of bibles on hand (this is a church, after all;))


2) Just in case you wondered -- the Vestry is still working through your comments from the Annual Meeting, and we are considering changes where possible and needed. Thank you for sharing your ideas for improvement with us. We take them seriously. Watch for a more comprehensive communication soon as we wrap up our work.


(Below are two repeat announcements from last week, because they are super important)


3) Looking for a ministry? We would love to have you volunteer on Sundays and serve as an Usher (greet people and take collection), Lector (read the lessons), Intercessor (say the prayers), Choir (sing!), or Eucharistic Minister (pass out communion). No experience necessary. Pay commensurate with experience :) To get enlisted and trained, contact Rosemary and Fr. Mark at This email address is being protected from spambots.

4) Calling all youth! If you are entering grades 4-12 next year you are invited to attend the amazing DioNeb Camp Canterbury July 24-28. We are providing transportation to and from, and everyone can get at least a partial scholarship. I am telling you, Church Camp changes lives and builds lifelong friendships, and I strongly encourage our kids to attend. Here's a link to register or for more information

Bible Reading for today

Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.

St. Mathew 11:28
