Welcome to the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit!
Rev. Keith Oglesby, Rector
We are a community of faith seeking to love and serve in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
The members of The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit welcome all guests to our church. We have fun here. We laugh, we cry, we pray, we serve, and we live... all as a community of Christians devoted to our Lord Jesus Christ and to each other.
Come to one of our services. If we can help serve you in any way, we will welcome the opportunity.
If you are making your home in this community we extend to you a hearty invitation to make this your church home.
