We invite you to be part of our faith journey

We believe that God is calling the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri to transform our churches, our communities, and our world to reflect more and more God’s dream found in Jesus Christ. A dream that calls us to be a people who seek to be followers of Jesus who are forgiven, healed, strengthened and renewed. We seek a deeper connection with God and with each other as we journey together.

So, whether you are here for the first time or have been in church all your life; whether you are liberal, conservative, independent or progressive; whether you are urban, suburban, rural or no place to lay your head; whether you are rich, dead broke, old, young, straight, gay, Trans, non-binary, arriving with a busload of kids, coming alone, firm in your faith or filled with doubts, God brought you here and we welcome you... just as you are!

We hope you will join us on the journey with Jesus!
