Good Morning Sons and Daughters of Grace,
I pray everyone is having a safe, first day of our state-wide stay at home order. Our goal at St. Michael and All Angels, for the duration of this order, is to be in compliance while continuing to be a faithful witness for Christ within our community's new realization of the frail and transitory nature of this life. So quickly, some updates on what we will be providing over the next few weeks:
1. For the Saturdays in April, we will be dropping off bags for our food drive starting at 9:00 a.m. (bags are placed at the front door of a house, no contact is made between persons). We are apparently allowed a walk outside, so this could count as your walk while helping some of the hundreds of thousands who have lost their jobs and are now food insecure. We have already helped people with the food we collected last weekend (thank you to those who helped).
2. Sunday Holy Communion will be at 10:30 a.m. in the church sanctuary. All families are asked to sit at least 6 feet apart from one another. We will partake of the Body and Blood of Christ via intinction (the celebrant will place the host in wine and then administer the Sacrament on the tongue of the communicant). The celebrant will be sanitizing his hands between each communicant. Also, the prayer desk upon which people may kneel to receive will be sanitized in between each member. Again, those who have high risk factors for this disease can stay home and participate via our daily live stream for the sick and infirm: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCk3vHah77VOKVdvd_OzFLAw or https://www.facebook.com/stmichaelsop/ or for audio only: https://soundcloud.com/user-973281145 or look up “Daily Office” on iTunes and you will find our podcasts of services and sermons.
3. Grocery Delivery, if any of our members who hold risk factors for COVID-19 need grocery pick-up and delivery, please contact me as we have less susceptible volunteers who are ready and willing to get you what you need.
Finally, I will continue to call around to make sure everyone is doing ok, but please don’t hesitate to call me with prayer requests or other needs during the week. Times of pestilence and adversity are the exact moments in which those who believe Christ has liberated us from death should be boldly confident in the assured hope which defines our lives. Be safe; Banish fear; Trust in Christ.
At SMAA, we benefit from a religious rule of life that has survived history’s greatest triumphs and catastrophes, a Christ-centered way of living designed to imprint the Bible onto our hearts, purge us of sin, and help us grow ever more united with the Trinity. We are on a life-long quest for holiness, and we firmly stand on the rock of tradition handed down to us from the saints who, even now, gaze on the victorious face of our resurrected King. Join us on this walk in the light of our Savior.
Learn how to trust
Teaching the Faith is at the heart of forming Christians after the image of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our church studies the Bible together as one community of faith, so that we may be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh us for a reason for the hope that is in us.
Learn how to love
St. Michael and All Angels Church warmly welcomes all who seek after God in and through Jesus Christ. Our church provides a stable home for families to grow in love for our Lord and His Church through outreach, building community, and a commitment to unchanging truth.
Learn how to live
Our Lord calls each of us to order our lives around His Gospel in order to become good subjects of his Kingdom. St. Michael and All Angel's gives all of her members a way to live in the world which honors our Lord Jesus Christ.
God made us
to live and pray and die and rise together
A member is never on his own.
We are an intentionally small and intimate community of faith because God became man to save individuals bound together by His sacrifice to form a new eternal family.
Stadiums and darkness bring alienation.
Sanctuaries and light bring reconciliation
Our Lord commands His church to help those most afflicted by the fallen world. We conduct food drives within the parish and the neighborhoods around the church to help meet this need.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the parish office for more information: or (904) 705-3614.
"And the king shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." (Matthew 25:40)

Defense Against the Dark Arts
Particularly centered on middle, high school, college aged students, this class is designed to help young people face the barrage of faith challenging questions that await them in High School, College, and beyond. As a people whose faith is rooted in the truth and bolstered by thousands of years of thought and argumentation, we truly believe that in any honest debate Christianity will win. Here is where we prove that fact. Every first Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m.
Family Bible Study
Sermons on Sunday, while important, are not the only doctrinal exposure the Christian should be revitalized by throughout the week. The two weekly Bible studies at St. Michael's are open to the entire community. Each Sunday morning and Wednesday morning, we learn more about the scriptures and grow closer to God as we seek to know him better. The Sunday Morning class is an opportunity to ask questions that might have appeared during the previous week's Daily Lectionary readings. By following this pattern of study, a Christian has the opportunity to cover the entire Old Testament once a year and the New Testament twice a year. The Wednesday morning class is an in-depth study of one complete book.
Theology on Tap
