St. Mary's is an assembly of Christian
believers who gather together in the
community of Silver Run.  We are a
collection of people with different needs and
concerns and yet we are called to a unity
which grows from joining together in worship
of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit.  Each of us has different God-given
talents which we are called to use to witness
to our faith in God's love revealed through
Jesus Christ.  We are called and empowered
by the Holy Spirit to invite others to share in
our faith in Christ and to welcome them
into the life of our congregation.
