Something for everyone.  Join us!

 
Kids in Church

KIDS ANCHOR CLUB
GRADES K-5

Sunday 10:00am Service

Each Sunday morning for the 10:00am service, children get to participate in their own lesson shortly after Church begins. Children grades K-5 are instructed to follow the teacher for a loving lesson that correlates to the current readings for that Sunday. Anchor Club is very popular!  Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers are carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction.

ALTAR GUILD

Setting up Sacred Space

Setting the Lord’s Table for Sunday Eucharistic worship is performed by two or three member Teams who meet on Friday or Saturday to make these preparations.  Using the bulletin, hymn numbers are pulled/placed on hymn boards, candles are oiled, altar hangings are changed based on the church season, linens are replaced if soiled, gospel, lectionary and missal books are marked, chalices, patens, water and wine cruets are made ready and these along with collection plates are placed on the altar and credence tables.   Following Sunday worship, the team members will remove and clean items.    Approximate time for set up is one and one half hours for church and chapel and 15 to 20 minutes following the Sunday Church Eucharist.

DAUGHTERS OF THE KING

The International Order of the Daughters of the King is a lay religious order for women. Women in the Order are communicants of the Episcopal Church and church in communion with it - Anglican, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic. Reaffirming the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service and evangelism. She receives support in this commitment from a worldwide community of like-minded women. The Mission of the Order is the extension of Christ's Kingdom through Prayer, Serice and Evangelism.

The Women of Grace chapter meets at Grace Episcopal on the 3rd Tuesday of the month for prayer, study, planning service projects, and sharing. Those interested in participating may arrange to attend a meeting as a guest to learn more. Please contact Pat McHugh at patmchugh70@yahoo.com, or another Daughter for more information.


The Women of Grace are committed to the projects and services listed below, and are looking for other opportunities where we can be of assistance to Fr. Aaron and to our church.


  • Confidential Prayer requests for daily prayer. Prayer cards will be made available in the near future and will be located in the pews. In the meantime, please contact one of our Daughters (Sharon Chapman, Alicia Kellogg, Doris Latour, Pat McHugh and Mary Kay Montford) with any confidential needs you would like us to pray for.

  • Cooks on Call.  This is designed to help ease the daily burdens due to difficult circumstances of families or individuals who attend our church by providing ready-to-eat meals. This ministry is carried out by volunteers from Grace. To learn more about Cooks on Call (volunteering to deliver meals, cooking meals, etc) please reach out to patmchugh70@yahoo.com.
