Ministries

Our ministries focus on meeting the needs of our community with the gifts that God has blessed us with.  We have all been blessed with talents and passions that we can use to the betterment of our community.  Perhaps you are a great organizer, a dishwasher, a public speaker, or a listener.  Maybe you have a passion to eradicate poverty, to bake, to save the environment, to encourage our youth, to clean, or to bring people together.  The point is no matter what you enjoy or what you are good at – all these things can be used for God’s glory and to make the world we live in better for us and those around us.  Every single gift is important and valuable!

Outreach
A collection of ministries that work in across our parish to help out people in our community. Grampy’s Store (found in our church hall) offers a place for the free distribution of things like clothes and furniture each Wednesday morning. The Outreach Committee seeks out and answers requests to help out people and families in the county with groceries or bill assistance. And the Primates World Relief and Development Fund helps out people and other organizations on a grand scale all over the world. These ministries along with all of our other ministries listed here work tirelessly to provide for the needs of our neighbors.

Altar Guild

Bible Fellowship
Living a Christian life of faith is about so much more then attending church. Along with such things as love and charity the Christian life must be fed by the Word of God, support, and meaningful prayer as can only be found when we gather to read, question, and discuss God’s Holy Scripture. This is Bible Fellowship.
