Ministries

Adult Christian Education

Altar Guild

We continue to do “God’s Housekeeping” by keeping our linens and vessels beautiful and preparing God’s house for worship, weddings, funerals, and Feast Days.

Greeters

Our goal is to welcome people so warmly in God’s name, that the presence of the Holy Spirit at work in our Parish is apparent.

Healing Prayer

We offer ourselves as instruments of God’s Healing power to bring wholeness in Body, Mind, and Spirit through prayer and by the laying on of hands.

Music Ministry

The Music Ministry of St. Michael’s seeks to glorify God and proclaim His Word through sacred music. The Music Ministry works to do this in the parish in the following ways: Preparation and selection of hymns and service music week by week; Leadership in music and preparation of sacred choral music from the Choir; Leadership in music and preparation of contemporary music from the Praise Team.

Nursing Home Ministry

Our visits bring “Sonshine” – the light of Christ – into the seniors residence. The love of Christ permeates the whole group, residents and all other participants, as we sing, pray and celebrate the Eucharist together.

Outreach

“Whatever you do for the least of these brothers of mine, you do for me.” Matthew 25:40

The Outreach Committee seeks to achieve this by making the congregation aware of, and involving them in projects that help to serve those in need. We initiate projects at the local, national and international level and support them by using the talents that God has given to all of us.

Pastoral Care

 “To respond to human need by loving service.” 

Pastoral care team: A committee of 6 with a team of some 40 members. We offer ourselves as  a team of Christ’s servants, to minister to our brothers and sisters, through prayer and help when they are in need, caused by sickness or rehabilitation.

Shepherds Ministry

Rejoice with me, I have found my lost sheep.  (Luke 15:6)

This is a team of caring parishioners whose goal is to contact members on a regular basis. With the help of the Good Shepherd, we offer prayers and encouragement, as we develop our relationship with God and each other to strengthen the fabric of the Christian community at St. Michael and All angels Church.

Members of the sides team also help with the collection passing the plates around during the service and counting all contributions following the service.

Sunday School

At St. Michael and All Angels we are committed to ministering to our Children. We believe in teaching and nurturing them and providing a safe place for them so that they may grow to know Jesus, His love for them and in turn show His love to others. Ages: 5 to 12
