Each of these ministries supports our coming together at the table
Christ instructed us to do.

knowledge of Christ. The Education Ministries include: Adult Faith

Striving to extend the mission of the parish into the wider
community. Ministries working on Outreach include:

Responding to God's call to be stewards of our community and it's
resources. Stewardship ministries include: Facilities Committee,
Finance Committee, Foyers, Hospitality Committee, Lay Eucharistic

life of the parish — our people, buildings, funds and future.
If you are not sure which ministry is for you, we encourage you to
speak to the Reverend Mary White, our Rector. She would love to help
you discern your gifts and discover where God may be calling you to
serve. If you feel called to serve in a ministry not described here,
feel free to talk to the Rector and Wardens about it and they will
see how they can support you.
