Our Ministries

Our church is committed to helping all its members recognize, develop and celebrate the gifts God gives them for doing a variety of ministries. Here is an overview of some of the ministries we offer. We hope this may help you find a place to serve God.

Bereavement 

The Bereavement Committee is a group who have volunteered to serve those who are experiencing the loss of a loved one by preparing a meal for the bereaved and out of town guests who are attending the funeral. It is a time when the family can come together with a meal, conversation and shared memories. If you feel called to assist in this ministry by providing food, serving or cleaning up after the meal, contact Mary Ann Thomas or the church office for more information.

Altar Guild

The Altar Guild are parishioners who serve God by caring for the sanctuary and everything in it. They are often unseen and unnoticed, but their ministry is essential for the smooth flow of worship and for creating an atmosphere of reverence. They work behind the scenes to clean and polish the chalices, set up the altar for each service, as well as observe the changing liturgical seasons. If you would like more information on this ministry, contact Ann Graham or the church office.

Worship Leader / Liturgist

The Worship Leader, or Liturgist, assists the pastor with the order of worship by calling the people to worship, introducing hymns, reading scripture and leading unison prayers. Typically, worship leaders serve for one month.  If you would like to serve in this ministry or want more information, contact Twyla Hersman or the church office.
