What We Believe

To believe is to care; to care is to do.




Don Finkenstadt, Sexton

If we had to vote for the best member of the Church of the Isles, then Don Finkenstadt would be the winner, hands down! Fortunately, we’re all equal in God’s eyes around here while this father of two and grandfather of two goes about his sexton duties when no one is around from 6am to 8am everyday!

Don originally hails from New Jersey but has been a member of this church by the sea since 1963. He takes care of the church property through light cleaning, room set-ups, and light maintenance work—and in fact, the man whose motto is “Peace starts with a smile” was elected by the congregation to the office of “Lifetime Deacon.”
