Each Sunday we have two vases of flowers; cost is $25 to sponsor one, and $50 for both. If you would like to be on the Flower Arranging Team…

Lectors/Prayers of the People

The scriptures and liturgy are meant to be read aloud; when confident and articulate people take part in this ministry, the whole congregation benefits.

Pastoral Care Team

This Team’s mission is to make regular visits to our homebound and hospitalized members. After special training and approval, members also bring Holy Communion to people in their homes.
