We are a small, friendly and growing Christian community. We are focused on growing spiritually through prayer, worship, Bible study and acts of kindness to our fellow human beings. Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome to join us.
Let Justice & Peace Flow
is the theme for the Season of Creation 2023
"Prophet Amos cries out: “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5: 24) and so we are called to join the river of justice and peace, to take up climate and ecological justice, and to speak out with and for communities most impacted by climate injustice and the loss of biodiversity.
As the people of God, we must work together on behalf of all Creation, as part of that mighty river of peace and justice.

ACKNOWLEDGING THE LAND
A three-part series following the 9:30 service
Garth Myers, Leader
October 15: Indigenous Wethersfield Then and Now
November 12: Land Acknowledgments in Our Area
December 10: Land Acknowledgments in the Episcopal Church in the US and Connecticut
Land acknowledgment statements are becoming common for churches, colleges and universities and other institutions, in the US and around the world. They are seen as a means of coming to grips with both the past and present injustices and harms in settler colonialism, imperialism, and capitalism toward Indigenous peoples. What do these statements mean for us, and what actions or engagements, beyond mere words, make sense for our parish? As Christians seeking to be "contemplatives in action," how can a process of acknowledging the land lead us to a "right relationship" with our Creator, ourselves, our neighbors, and the earth? We will explore these questions in three Sundays - one in each month beginning October 15. The three sessions will expand our conversation outwards, beginning with our immediate space in Wethersfield, building outward to the greater Hartford area, and then the diocese and the US.
