Whether you are an Episcopalian or not, our joyous community welcomes everyone and worships by coming together in laughter, song, and prayer via hybrid services, both in-person and live online via Zoom.  Visitors are welcome no matter who you are, where you are in the world, or where you are on your journey of faith, and we would love for you to join us for worship, prayer, learning, and serving our community.

Washington County Covid cases are currently at Yellow/Medium Risk, so St. Gabriel is encouraging face masks when inside the church building, although it is still optional.
We encourage anyone who is eligible to be vaccinated against Covid and continue following safety practices such as using hand sanitizer and washing hands often. If you don’t feel well, please stay home and attend services online via Zoom.
Thanks for taking care of each other, and we send healing prayers to those feeling ill.

St. Gabriel the Archangel Episcopal Church Welcomes You!

Welcome from Rev. Everett W. Charters IV

Welcome to the Beloved Community of St. Gabriel the Archangel! My name is Rev. Everett Charters and I am the Priest-in-Charge of this parish.

St. Gabriel is a vibrant and engaging congregation whose leadership and members are dedicated to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. We offer multiple “hybrid” Zoom/in-person worship services each week and have live music at our 10 am Rite II Eucharist. Our weekly classes, Christian formation, and fellowship opportunities continue to creatively respond to the needs and concerns of our most vulnerable members.

I am available for conversation with you— about this congregation, membership, our community, and our beliefs—or if there’s anything else on your mind.

All of us are delighted to share the joy of this faith community with you.

In the peace and love of Christ,

Everett+
