Parish & Clergy Services


As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.  Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through  Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.


- 1 Peter 4:10-12
