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. Jason Shelby.
Nursery, & Sunday School
Bring your children to Sunday School for our wonderful Montessori-based, Godly Play curriculum.
Godly Play makes meaning through story, wonder, and play. Nurturing spiritual lives by honoring the centrality, competency, and capacity of children. You and your children will be blessed by these teachings.
