~Prayer is vital to our life in Christ both individually and corporately. We are always seeking those who are willing to be very intentional in praying for a specific person or problem – sometimes such folks are called “prayer warriors” because they are so committed. This is a vital ministry that can be done without ever leaving one’s home. Please let us know if you’d like to be a part the Mission Prayer Team.
~ While this is also part of the “communications” package, we’re striving to set up a phone tree to communicate quickly when services are cancelled due to weather or any other situation that requires rapid action and/or knowledge. If this speaks to your heart, let us know.
Visiting Lay Eucharistic Ministers
~These folks have a heart for those who are home-bound and/or recovering from illness and are trained to take Holy Communion to them. Generally, teams of two work together in this ministry and training is provided.
~Periodically there is a time-limited project in need of completion; this is when we seek volunteers to form a task force to recommend to the vestry the best course of action and following vestry approval, will often participate in and oversee the completion of the project.
~As some of the longest members in our congregations can no longer drive, we’re always seeking those who are willing to provide transportation to/from worship and other events. This is also true for those who might be injured, preventing them from driving for some period of time. Let us know if you can help with this ministry.
~As noted in another tab, the vestry is the elected governing body of an Episcopal Church. Two wardens and six members are each elected for 3-year terms during the annual meeting and have responsibility to ensure the financial well-being of the church and work in conjunction with the Priest-in-Charge to carry out programming.
