A Welcoming Episcopal Community

Incarnation Holy Sacrament Church is a community of people from all walks of life who come together around the body and blood of the Risen Lord, Jesus who we proclaim as truly God and truly Human. Our community is one that welcomes all people, no matter who they are or where they have been. Christ's mercy and love is for literally everyone. No exceptions.

"When I joined IHS over seven years ago, what drew me to want to be priest here, was that IHS is a church I wanted to join as a member. The multi-generational, child friendly environment was fun and energetic, and it still is today!"
