Preserving a sense of extended family is very important to us at St. Augustine. We invite everyone to linger for a cup of coffee after church, come to a Christian Formation class for children, youth and adults; join us for Wednesday Lunch after the noonday service; sing in the Praise Chorus; or participate in one of the many Small- group activities that offer a way we get to know each other better. Though the people of St. Augustine's are proudly diverse, inclusive, and strong-minded. We still seek to be a congregation that reflects fully the eloquent complexity of God's creation and strives to be a loving and safe community that respects and cares for each person.
