What is a ministry? Ultimately, ministry is how we connect with one another.
We believe that what we do within each ministry should flow purposefully out of what we value and love. Whether you have a family of five or are single and love to ride your mountain bike, you'll find a place to help you experience God.
Altar Guild, Sally Steere & Carol Walsh
The Altar Guild prepares the sanctuary for worship. They care for the vessels
and altar linens used during services, including baptisms, weddings, funerals
and other religious observances. The Altar Guild also arranges for altar
flowers throughout the year, as liturgically appropriate.
Acolytes, Arthur Eldredge & David Jette
The acolytes assist with worship, Sundays from early September to early
June. Acolytes meet for training at the end of August in the church followed by
a pizza party.
Eucharistic Ministers (EM), Pat Row
The Eucharistic Ministry is central to the Holy Eucharist. Eucharistic
Ministers serve the chalice at communion. They also take communion to shut-ins. In order to serve as a EM you must be a member of All Saints’ in good standing, have a strong faith, and be licensed by the diocese.
Hospitality, Sue Tavenier
Nothing enhances our feeling of "togetherness" more than a shared cup of coffee or a freshly baked treat. Our hospitality ministry recruits volunteers and organizes teams to provide light refreshments or a home cooked meal, as the case may be. If you like to share your gift of baking or cooking with your friends and neighbors, this is a wonderful way to get involved in parish life.
Lay Readers, David Jette
Lay Readers read the lessons from the Old Testament and from the Epistle.
They also lead the congregation in the Prayers of the People. New readers are
welcome and participate in an instructional session with the Rector.
Pastoral Care, Heidi Graff
Pastoral care volunteers visit people who are home either sick, recuperating, home bound, or otherwise in need of a little extra care and attention. Our pastoral care team helps to organize parishioners to visit each other and provide valuable help in times of need such as rides to doctors' appointments or to church.
Ushers, Jack Calhoun
Ushers greet parishioners, distribute bulletins, help seat parishioners as needed,
receive the offering, guide the flow of people during communion, and meet any
special needs which may occur during the service. Training and support are
provided to new ushers.
Healing Prayer Ministry, Betsy Fowle
The Healing Prayer Ministry was established with the desire to follow Jesus’
instruction to be healers in the world. Following communion at the 10am
Holy Eucharist service, trained parishioners pray with those seeking healing prayer for themselves or others.
Welcome Committee, Beth Healy
The welcome committee is devoted to providing a friendly face for newcomers. Whether you have never visited a church before, you are on vacation in this area, or you are returning to church after time away, the welcome committee will ensure your questions are answered and that you feel warmly embraced and welcomed.
Weekly Prayer Group, Nina Pollack
Our prayer group meets once a week on Wednesdays at 10am in the Parlor. This group meets to remember and pray for those in our church and beyond who have asked for our prayers. The members of this group also organize a quarterly retreat for those interested in learning more about prayer.
