Priest Tracker!

And they’re here!!

It’s been a long couple of days of driving, but the Shelby family have made it safely to California.

Please welcome Rev. Jason, with his wife Jennifer and little ones Rachel and Archie! Currently in San Diego with family before Jason+ leads his first worship with us the Sunday, February 5, at 8 and 10am. He’ll also be joining us for a special coffee hour after 10am worship.

After a bright and early start we’re out of Texas, into New Mexico and then stopping for the night and some much needed sleep!

The journey begins – Columbus MS, across the Mississippi, then sunset in Texas!

Please Welcome The Reverend Jason Shelby

Sunday February 5!!!

Sunday February 5 will be Rev. Shelby’s first time leading our worship.
Please welcome him!

We hope as many as possible will be there on that day to welcome the Shelby family, and start the process of getting to know each other.

In the meantime, please hold them in your prayers as they negotiate the challenges of a long distance move and transition to a new Parish.

Worship Bulletins

In Need of Prayer?

St. Francis has a strong prayer ministry. During our Sunday services we read aloud the names of those who are sick or in any kind of acute or serious trouble.
In addition, a team of members of the congregation pray daily and confidentially for any who request help.

If you have a request, please contact The Rev. Jerry Sather.


Nursery, & Sunday School
