Welcome to St. Charles Episcopal Church.
We are a church with a big heart, shining the light of Christ, joyfully serving others. We are a thriving parish with a growing, energetic membership, where what we do is an expression of our faith in Jesus Christ. We are open to all, striving to make a difference in our community.
We are young and old, single and married, of different social and economic backgrounds. That which unites us is more important than our differences. We are all here because we find Jesus Christ in our worship, in our fellowship, and in our ministry and service to others.
Our Rule of Life is how we live the Gospel daily:
Christ is the cornerstone of the church, and prayer is the foundation of our life together.
We come together in the celebration of Holy Eucharist on a regular basis.
We listen to one another with the compassionate heart of Christ, and ask questions for clarification.
We respect one another's stories by listening and keeping their confidence.
We strive to practice forgiveness as we have been forgiven through Jesus' death and resurrection.
We behave knowing God is in our midst.
We seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves.
We respect the dignity of every human being.
We actively build worship, education, service, and giving.
All are welcome in this place. The Episcopal Church welcomes you!
