MISSION STATEMENT

We seek to speak directly to the members of our community that are and feel marginalized. We wish to say that our church recognizes that all members of the human family, regardless of where they are on life's journey, are beloved children of God. Why are we doing this? When the world is decisive, God remains the same - a loving God of mercy, grace and justice. If the church does not communicate that to the community then we speak with our silence, and we speak for God. However, God asks us, as he asked Moses on Mt. Sinai, to act. Currently, there are few ways for the marginalized to feel supported and loved by their community members. The simple act of public acceptance and invitation to our marginalized community members makes a clear statement that they don't have to be alone and that they don't have to be separated from God. 

Therefore, to all, we offer grace and love when they enter our doors. All are Welcome.

History

Long before an Episcopal Church made its appearance in Thermopolis, The Reverend John Roberts had come to the Wind River Reservation to minister to the Shoshone and Arapahoe Native Americans. He did not confine his work to the reservation alone, but travelled all over the country. He camped once in the future site of the town of Thermopolis and his camp was attacked by bears, one of the many harrowing experiences he endured. Yet he continued on the ministry he began in 1883 focusing on the people of the reservation and reaching beyond, preaching whenever he could get a group together, this included the area of Thermopolis.
