Our Mission Statement
This church is here to glorify God
and experience Jesus Christ in worship.
We seek to do this by being a welcoming and caring family
in which all members play their part.
Our desire is to find out more about the love of God
and to share that love.
St. Mary's is here to help people find God.
A Prayer for Lent
Dear Father in heaven,
Thank you for the example Jesus gave us
when He was in the wilderness –
the desert where He was tempted by the enemy of all that is good.
Lord when we are tempted to give in to temptation,
whatever form it may take, help us to remember that Jesus was tempted too,
in the same ways that we are.
But He looked to you for help and strength;
He looked to your word and trustworthiness.
Help us to know your help and strength too.
Help us to resist temptations by trusting you through Jesus.
Help us to be good examples to others who may be struggling with life issues
and to lead them also to you.
Lord, please help us, as only you can.
We ask in Jesus name,
The church is open
all day for prayer
today and every day.
