St. C’s Launches New Website

St. C’s Launches New Website

St. Columba's is very pleased to announce that a new website has been launched at Columba.org. This project was started last summer, with the valued input from communication focus groups last spring. It has been clear for some time that we had "grown out of" the previous website, and needed some room to talk about the new directions we are growing in.

Sunday Forum Faith Labs

Sunday Forum Faith Labs

More than inviting people to be a part of “a church” at St. Columba’s, we’re inviting you to be a part of “a way” – the way of Christian living. Christian living isn’t something that one just does; it’s a lifestyle that takes intention, practice and care. This year, join us for a series of faith labs where we will explore five Christian Practices that have proven throughout the ages to make a difference in the life of both the faithful and the faith-empty.
