Eleven Reasons to Come to St. Francis or Any Episcopal Church
(The first ten are by comedian Robin Williams, who happens to be an Episcopalian)
10. No snake handling.9. You can believe in dinosaurs. 8. Male and female God created them; male and female we ordain them. 7. You don't have to check your brains at the door. 6. Pew aerobics. 5. Church year is color-coded. 4. Free wine on Sunday. 3. All of the pageantry - none of the guilt. 2. You don't have to know how to swim to get baptized. And the Number One reason to be an Episcopalian: 1. No matter what you believe, there's bound to be at least one other Episcopalian who agrees with you. Bonus reason to be a member of St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church: When you are here, you are in a safe place where you are loved and accepted unconditionally during your greatest joy and most desperate sorrow.

"St. Francis of Assisi's Disk Golf Heaven"
"Where Angels come to play to have a devil of a good time"
Our congregation hosts St. Francis of Assisi's Disk Golf Heaven, an 18 “hole,” world-class (so we’ve been told!) disc golf course laid out on 28 acres of reclaimed prairie and wooded terrain immediately behind the church. Free and open all year round, the course offers walking paths in a rustic setting. There is plenty of parking available too. Bring your own water as no drinking fountain is available.The course was created though the generous contribution of materials and labor by local area residents, as well as members of St. Francis’ parish. The grand opening of "St. Francis of Assisi's Disk Golf Heaven" was held on September 12, 2010. We hope for, but certainly do not expect donations. Donations received help pay for course maintenance .
