The Altar Guild is charged with the sacred task of preparing the altar and the sanctuary for worship. Teams of altar guild members work tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that our worship is beautiful and holy. Men and women of all ages are welcome to join the Guild.
Our bible study groups follow a variety of exciting and illuminating scripture study programs. The purpose is to understand the Scripture better and to wrestle with tough questions. Participants find that they’re better equipped to use Scripture in their everyday lives. Our main Bible study is led by Fr. Jonathan right after our church service on most Sunday mornings at 11:30 am. Other lay led Bible studies happen throughout the year. No previous experience of reading or studying Scripture is necessary.
Saint Augustine of Hippo once said, “When you sing, you pray twice.” Our choir leads us in song during the 10 am service from September through May. The music is a blend of traditional and contemporary. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings. The choir is always happy to have one more voice!
Lay Eucharistic Ministers
Not every member of our community can be with us on Sunday mornings. Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) faithfully bring the sacrament of Holy Communion to the frail, the sick, and the home-bound of our community. LEMs are trained and licensed by the diocese. This is a very special ministry that involves sensitivity, reverence, and courage. Those who feel a calling to this ministry should contact Father Jonathan. If you would like to request a visit from one of our dedicated LEMs, please call the church office.
Our lectors are an essential part of our Sunday morning worship. They read lessons from the bible, lead the congregation in prayer, and help to administer Holy Communion. Training sessions occur each September, but new lectors are always welcome.
This five week course, scheduled as needed, is designed for those who are new to the Anglican/Episcopal tradition, but it is also an excellent refresher course for lifelong Anglicans. The course also prepares adults for Confirmation or Reception into The Episcopal Church. Anyone interested in such a group starting up should call the church office or speak with the priest after church.
