Why Our Church
WHO WE ARE
We are young and we are old. We are life long Episcopalians and we are brand new to the Church. We are from Georgia and we are from New York. We are conservative, moderate, and liberal.
We are St Michael’s Episcopal Church.
It’s important to know that we are a parish (church) in the Diocese of Georgia and that as Episcopalians, we are members of the worldwide Anglican Communion with over 70 million members, making us the third largest body in Christendom.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The most important thing anyone can know about us is that we are united to one another through our Baptism and our love for each other and for God who has uniquely created each of us, redeemed us from our brokenness and despair, and continues to give us strength, hope, challenge, and joy.
WHERE WE ARE
We have been in Waynesboro, Georgia for over 100 years, but in many ways we are just beginning. You are warmly invited to discover who we are through the pages of this website and in person. Our goal is to be the smallest big church we can be. What does this mean? We want to offer through worship, service, mission, education, nurture, and fellowship the same things churches 10 times our size offer without losing the intimacy and familial nature that largely defines us. We don’t let our size limit us, rather we embrace what God has called us to be – a small big church instead of a big small church.
