New Life Episcopal Church

Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!


New Life and the wider Episcopal Church give you many opportunities to serve God’s people inside our church family at the local, diocesan and national levels, and outside our church family in local, national and international communities. Thorough New Life, you will find numerous ways to serve and be served. And our church runs on volunteer power! Just about every parishioner volunteers in some way…from doing a reading to watching a child to hosting a coffee hour after the service to cleaning the windows! This happy fact unites our faith family in purpose and fellowship.
