Wherever you are or have been on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.

Church of Our Saviour is a diverse and vibrant Christian community in the Episcopal tradition. We believe in caring for each other, serving the wider community, and being good stewards of the earth. Whoever you are or whoever you’ve been, we warmly invite you to join us for Sunday worship and fellowship time to truly experience the way God is present here.

Our Eucharist, which means “Thanksgiving,” is a service of Holy Communion open to all. Each Sunday, we gather in a circle to hear God’s word and pray.

Holy Eucharist 10 a.m. Sundays Sept.–June | 9 a.m. July–Labor Day

Worship with Your Toddler 8:30 a.m.–9 a.m. 1st Sun. of the month (except July)

Learn here about our services and programs, activities for children, and efforts to reach out to others. Then come and see, introduce yourself to our rector Rev. Malia Crawford or deacon Rev. Sue Fisher Seeger, say hello to the greeter as you come in, and if you like, fill out a newcomer card found in the pew.

Our beloved parishioner Jane Guy died on Wed. Feb. 15. Please keep her wife, Gail, as well as their families, friends, and all who loved Jane in your prayers.

On Sat., Jan. 14, our beloved Jim Mouradian died unexpectedly. A talented bass guitarist, he had been playing a gig in CT.
