On behalf of St.Mary's-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church, welcome to our website. We hope this virtual door to our parish will bring you to the actual door of our parish church and into our community. We are a friendly and inviting community where you can make a difference with the ministry that God has given to you. We gather to worship God using the liturgical forms of the Episcopal Church. We love to sing. We do not allow the Holy Scriptures to be buried in the cultures of their origin; we practice a rigorous effort of interpretation to make fitting correspondences with our every day lives in our own time. We obey the command of Jesus to convene the Holy Eucharist when we gather in his name. We try to comprise a very large spiritual space which allows each person to be true to the specific spiritual path of one's life while sharing within our community which attempts to be an orchestra of harmony of different ministries.
Our goal is not just to worship God and hear the Gospel; we hope to "do" the Gospel with outreach and with the deeds of our lives.
I invite you to come and visit us. It could be that God is calling you to be with us, not because we are perfect, but because we are "perfectible" as we are committed to be better today than we were yesterday. Come and visit us. We believe you can make us a better community.
