Holy Nativity is a special place where individuals with open hearts and open minds can gather to share the love and life of Jesus as they follow their unique paths in life’s journey. It is a diverse community where traditional and progressive unite in a plethora of opportunities that are mentally and spiritually enriching to seekers and believers (yes — and nonbelievers) alike.
Take the opportunity to share in the many celebrations of community we offer: discuss questions of faith and religion; get involved in environmental activism; practice yoga; cultivate a garden that nourishes those in need; regenerate at a music concert; learn to bake bread—then break bread with a gathering of kindred spirits.
Come, see, and share in the rich cultural and spiritual community that is Holy Nativity Episcopal Church. Our doors are open, and we are waiting with full hearts and open arms to greet you. And, of course, attend Sunday services and celebrate the love and the glories of God’s kingdom.

We have 2 services each Sunday:
8:00 am - Spoken Eucharist
10:30 am - Sung Eucharist
At Holy Nativity, our services are traditional yet relaxed; we like to think of them as reverent yet comfortable - with room for the unpredictable movement of the Holy Spirit.
