St. Michael's of the Valley

Episcopal Church



About St. Michael's

Since 1949, St. Michael's has been a joyful worshipping community, celebrating the faith and  practice  of The Episcopal Church. 

Our services combine the traditional rites of worship with a welcoming, relaxed environment. We are always happy to welcome visitors, new neighbors, the curious, and people looking for a community of faith. 

Sunday Schedule

Every Sunday we have two services: an early service (8:00) with Holy Eucharist Rite I, and a later service (10:30) with Holy Eucharist Rite II. Christian Education for all ages is at 9:15 (Sept.-May).

In the summer months, the services are every Sunday Morning at 8 and 10.
