Our loving community invites you to join us as we gather together to praise God with song and prayer, share scripture, and receive Christ’s Holy Communion. At St. Gabriel, everyone is welcome at the Lord’s table no matter who you are or where you are on your journey of faith.

Welcome from Rev. Everett W. Charters IV

Greetings! Welcome to the website of St. Gabriel the Archangel. My name is The Rev. Everett Charters and I have the great good fortune to serve this parish as the Priest-in-Charge.

St. Gabriel is a vibrant and Holy Spirit-filled congregation whose leadership and members are dedicated to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ.

In our Baptismal Covenant we profess that we will love our neighbor and respect the dignity of every human being and we understand that the mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. We pursue this mission as we pray and worship, proclaim the Gospel, and promote justice, peace, and love in our community.

If you have experienced Scripture being weaponized to exclude or harm you, St. Gabriel is a place of refuge and a place for healing. You will be safe here.

Our primary form of worship is our Sunday Holy Eucharist where we gather to hear the Word of God and to be united with Christ through Holy Communion. We worship with music, song, and prayer.

Think of us as that friendly neighborhood church on the corner regardless of what neighborhood you live in. Our door is open and we invite you to come and experience the joy of the love of God in this community of faith.

In the peace and love of Christ,

Everett+
Priest-in-Charge
