Cultivating a Safe Church Community

As a place for all to worship, serve, and belong, we need to provide an environment and implement practices that provide a safe place for all of us to follow Jesus Christ. We follow guidance from the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and ask that leaders and staff take appropriate training sessions. Please find here the Diocesan and Church policies in place.
