Welcome to St. Francis!

Grace and Peace in the name of Jesus Christ! The Church's primary task is to fulfill Jesus' call to "go therefore and make disciples." At Saint Francis, we are embracing this call by serving Christ and the surrounding community through acts of worship, compassion, and teaching. We encourage a sense of belonging and mutual service within our fellowship. Family, youth and children's ministries, short and long-term educational opportunities and meaningful worship are all part of our life together.

Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, we are ready to welcome you to our St. Francis family. Come visit us!
