Welcome to Church of the Holy Nativity - Sunday Mass at 9:30am
We are very happy that you have found our website. We hope that it will answer some of your questions - but most important, we hope that you will come and visit us in person on a Sunday morning or even stop by during the week. We welcome all those who join us in seeking justice, dignity, and full inclusion. We follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ and seek to serve others in his name. As in our Baptismal Covenant, "we strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being" (Book of Common Prayer, pg. 305).
Come and worship with us in our newly air conditioned sanctuary with ramp accessible entry into the church.
Keep watch as new entries will be made often! We hope to see you soon...

Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
