I welcome you to the website of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in McPherson, Kansas.
We are a church that is small in number but mighty in its efforts to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and his worldly kingdom. We do this through ministry to each other and those outside our community, both at home and abroad; by welcoming the stranger into our midst; and of course by coming together as a family to offer worship, praise, thanksgiving and confession to God in Christ.
If you are a lost soul in need of safe harbor from the storms of this earthly life … or a committed Christian looking for a church home and means by which you can love and serve the Lord … or at any point between those two extremes, I invite you to visit St. Anne’s, to call me personally at the number listed here, or drop me an e-mail message. It will be our pleasure and a privilege to get to know you and to discover how we can minister to you, you to us, and all of us to Christ!
Peace, The Rev. Laird MacGregor, Rector
