This group serves at the Altar by assisting in: preparing the Table for Holy Eucharist; serving the celebrant; acting as crucifer by carrying the processional cross and Gospel Book, and serving as Thurifer at special services.
Our guild is divided into 4 teams, with each serving a month at a time in: preparing the altar items for weekly and special worship services; and cleaning and storing altar vessels and linens after each service.
Under the direction of our Music Director, our volunteer choir participates weekly in the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service, and other special services. They rehearse Wednesday (5:45 p.m.) and Sunday (9:15 a.m.). Anyone who enjoys singing is invited to join in helping lead our worship music.
Daughters of the King (DOK)
The DOK is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. Our parish’s Mary and Martha Chapter was the first chartered DOK group in this diocese. It currently has 20 laywomen who are dedicated to: pray for individuals, and serve the Rector and parish.
This group sets the tone for that important first impression of our parish as they greet and welcome all parishioners, visitors and newcomers to our church with a warm smile and a gracious spirit.
Lay Eucharistic Ministers
These specially trained and licensed people assist at our worship services by: reading the appointed lessons and prayers; assisting as chalicists at Communion; and sometimes leading Morning/Evening Prayer.
Lay Eucharistic Visitors
This specially trained and licensed group carry the consecrated Communion elements from a Eucharist service to parishioners who, by reason of illness or infirmity, are unable to come to church to receive.
These members provide a warm and loving atmosphere in our clean and fully equipped nursery, so that parents of infants and small children so desiring may focus in worship.
Dedicated members who assist at our worship services by: distributing service bulletins, collecting the offering, providing direction to congregants during the Eucharist, and keeping order in the entrance area.
