Joining St. Columba's
St. Columba’s has a warm and ready welcome for newcomers, whether they are walking through the door on impulse, visiting with friends and family, or looking for a spiritual home. People come to formal parish membership in many ways, and sometimes it can be months (or years!) before they are moved to make a full commitment.
But, as the ad says, membership has its privileges: a voice in shaping the parish's future and an added sense of mission. As one parishioner recalls, “It took time, but eventually I figured out that St. Columba’s wasn’t just a beautiful chapel, or an inspiring rector, or a hardworking vestry: It was me, too.”
Our Episcopal Church (local and national) defines a member as someone who worships regularly and also gives faithfully to the work of the Church. This giving consists of our time, our talent, and our financial resources.
St. Columba's offers many ways to get involved:
Come to services, be a reader, sing in the choir, serve as Eucharistic minister, join the Altar Guild, or act as an usher.
Learn more about the Christian faith through Bible study and other programs throughout the year.
