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...

St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals is this Sunday, Oct. 4th at the 10:30 a.m. service, which will be held on the lawn (weather permitting).  Live animals suitably restrained are welcome (as well as photos and mementos of animals who are unable to attend or are deceased) to receive a blessing.  There is no Sunday School.                           

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.

The next scheduled dinner is October 8

We would love to have your participation in one of three ways.  We cook for SPY's homeless youth on the Westside once a month on the 2nd Wednesday 6:30-8:30pm, and serve the meal the next day (Thursday) at 4:30pm. All are welcome to help us with donations, shopping, cooking and/or serving.  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.

You can donate winter clothing/supplies that are gently used or new: sweaters, coats, blankets, sleeping bags, knitted hats, gloves, scarves, unused or new socks and underwear.

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.
