Saint Augustine's identifies itself as an "open church."

By this we mean that all persons are welcome to come and be part of this community wherever they are in their spiritual journey. We seek to be a safe place for skeptics and doubters as well as for convicted believers.

We are an inclusive church in which people from many backgrounds have found common ground. We are a diverse community which discovered in God a oneness greater in significance than our differences. We have come to know that our variety, in truth, reflects the divine comprehensiveness of the God of all created things.

    In Christ,

    from The Rev. Nate Rugh and the Vestry at St. A's

What's Going On...

Homecoming Weekend:  Sept. 6 & 7:  Join us on Sat. Sept. 6th at 6pm for an all parish party!  There will be great food, beverages, music, fun, and games for all ages.  The fun continues on Sun., Sept. 7 with a brunch and Mission Fair after the 10:30 service.  Come learn more about the variety of ministries at St. A's.  This is a great time to invite family and friends - all are welcome!  (dinner and brunch are provided by the church).

Please support St. A's outreach ministry through SPY (Safe Place for Youth):  St. A's has committed to SPY to feed what has grown to 70-80 homeless kids one Thursday dinner per month.  The next scheduled dinner is September 11, 2014.

We would love to have your participation in one of two ways.  One Wednesday evening per month we prepare the dinner in the parish kitchen which is a lot of fun and good fellowship.  We need cooks but more importantly, shoppers to purchase the dinner ingredients.  We have created "shopping bags" of ingredients for varying budgets.  If you would like to participate and are not on the monthly email list, you can contact Donna Sintic at

You can provide financial support for this program by making out your check to St. Augustine church, with "SPY" on the memo/subject line.

The Centering Prayer Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. (for about 1 hour) in the Chapel, All are welcome; no previous experience needed.
