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...

Noticing God Series​: How do we notice God in mystical encounters, in the ordinary, in community, in creation, and more? Join our own Rev. Dr. Richard Peace, professor at Fuller Theological Seminary, for a series of classes on exploring spiritual practices of experiencing God. He will draw on the wisdom of the ancients using his recent book Noticing God.  Come for some or all of the sessions. Everyone is welcome.

                                    Saturday April 18, 9am-1pm, followed by an optional lunch

                                    Sundays, April 26, May 3, 10, 17, between the services - 9:15-10:05 am

Bookstore:  Check out the new books & gifts!  New coffee machine! or just come to visit. We are looking for additional volunteers.  If interested contact Mary, Lorri, Mindy, Alice or Doug.

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 April 9th  

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 Mindy Staley 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.


SPY Needs Our Help!: Their entire inventory of donations and winter clothing graciously donated throughout last year by supporters is gone due to a fire at the Venice Storage Unit where they were renting space. (Please see flyer on patio)      

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.
