Nativity Episcopal Church

Welcome! We invite you to discover our exciting congregation both here and on a Sunday morning. Look around and explore the ministries of our congregation, but only a personal visit can help you to know if this is the church you are looking for. Join us for worship and discover the blessing of being in a Christian community with diverse membership and an inclusive spirit that welcomes all persons to the altar. We happily call ourselves a family church, with a big heart for children and youth. Family means all families; single people, those with special needs, single parents, seniors, LGBT, and what would be considered a traditional family. We are here to support each other on each of our spiritual journeys and many different points of view are at home here. However, we do not exist for our members alone, but for the good of our whole community and the welfare of our neighbors. We look forward to meeting you!

Mary and Joseph continued on their journey with Marguerite Kirchhoff. They watched her work at the computer for her prayer group session. In another, her cat Henry is welcoming them. In the 3rd, they are with her as she says her daily office. Stay tuned to see where Mary and Joseph turn up next!

The Joyner's were the first Nativity family to host Mary and Joseph on their pilgrimage. Mary and Joseph helped them work on the Thanksgiving puzzle and Christmas decorations. They are continuing their journey with other Nativity families and will return to Nativity on Christmas Eve. Have a blessed journey Mary and Joseph!!
