It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you to the website of St. Mary's Pastoral Charge!
You will find here our Monthly Worship Schedule as well as the dates and times for various events in the life and work of the church. Whether you are new to the area, have been attending regularly, or maybe you have not attended for some time, know that you are welcome! We would love to have you join us!
Since arriving here on November 19, 2006, my family and I have been blessed to experience the warm welcome and loving support of the people of St. Mary’s.
This pastoral charge has been on a journey. A wonderful journey built on a foundation of hope, marked by deep faith in God, love for one another, and a abiding commitment to work, witness and worship. Together they have experienced the joys of the mountain top and have persevered through the difficulties of the valley. Throughout, God has been present and His Spirit has been evident, and yet, God never stops calling us to new things, new experiences, new journeys.
And so, we continue to journey together, full of hope, grounded in faith, committed to our mission of "Expressing the Good News of the Gospel as a faith community, desiring to follow Christ and proclaim Him to the world!"
God is with us, leading the way... exciting things are happening, thanks be to God!
In Christ’s Service,
Derek G. Elsworth
