A Warm Welcome: Coffee Hour

We love it when the community gathers to just be together: to catch up on the past week, to share our joys and concerns, to grow together in Christ and to feel what it means to be a part of the living and moving Body of Christ. Each week parishioners provide delicious and healthy foods to share. Please always feel welcome to come and be a part of our community.

Quilting Ministry

Each week people gather to create a quilt which is raffled off at the end of the year to raise money for the residents of The Episcopal Home. The members of this ministry also make other creative projects they sell at their annual Pumpkin Patch. No quilting experience needed, just an enjoyment of the company of others!

Healing Service at The Episcopal Home

There’s an intimacy of communion when the group gathered is small and knows each other well. All are welcome to attend. It’s a wonderful way to intentionally connect with God’s grace part way through the…
