St. Aidan's Episcopal Church

Welcome!

Wherever you are on your faith journey, St. Aidan's welcomes you.

Among us you will find a variety of faith stories and experiences, and a diversity of beliefs.  What we share in common is a trust that in community, in our worship, and in our caring for others we learn to better love our neighbor and deepen our awareness of God's presence. 

We understand this to be the fuller life to which Jesus calls us.

Forward Movement and The Episcopal Church Office of

Government Relations are calling Episcopalians

and all others to join in

PRAYER FOR THE NOVEMBER 3RD ELECTION

From the Book of Common Prayer

Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers and privileges: Guide the people of the United States in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected and our nation be enabled to fulfill your purposes

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  AMEN  

Worship Continues—Outdoors

 

On Sunday, November 1st, we will hold two services. Our weekly Online service will be held at 9:30 am via ZOOM followed by a short Coffee Hour. We will also have our Outdoor Service held at 11:00 am on the front lawn of the grounds. Please note: to attend the Outdoor Service we ask that you add your name to the Sign Up Genius.   We do ask that you sign up in advance.  We need to keep track of who will be attending since we can only have a group size of 75 people as per the Diocese regulations. If you sign up and then your plans change please go back into Sign Up Genius and change your status so another parishioner can fill your spot.     If you have time and feel comfortable, we can always use volunteers for Set Up, Clean Up, Usher, or the Welcome Table.  You will find more information on this responsibilities at the Sign Up Genius.    OUR LAST OUTDOOR SERVICE WILL BE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22ND.  We hope to resume indoor worship when conditions allow.

Though we are not all able to meet in person for worship, we are finding that the desire to pray, celebrate, and support each other in community still brings us together as we gather daily for evening worship, on Sunday mornings for our main service, and on Tuesdays and Fridays for silent prayer and meditation.  Evening worship is at 7 pm, Sunday morning at 9:30 am, and Tuesday and Friday we meet at 8:00 a.m. Information about joining services will be sent to registered participants. If you would like to be registered to join worship, you can email us on the contacts page.  We will need to verify your name, address, phone number, and email.  We apologize for this extra layer of security, but it has become necessary.  We hope you will join us online, in person, or both, as we continue to worship God and support one another through this unusual time. 

FALL GROUNDS CLEAN UP

 

We are hoping to clean up the grounds in preparation for winter. Our grounds need some trimming of trees and bushes as well as lots of weeding. Please click here to sign up.  Thank you!

Life at St. Aidan's

St Aidan's Day School

Serving the area for over 50 years.  What has remained constant is our love of children and our focus on the important skills acquired through play.  

St Aidan's Day School

"As the years have gone by, it's been a source of joy and pride to belong to a church that does welcome everyone. I've brought many people here for various reasons--people from other faiths, and people who have no faith at all. And to see that all are welcome reminds me that not only have I found a place whereI I belong, but that allows me to bring in and celebrate everyone in my life."
