Whether you have a busy schedule or lots of free time, Saint George's offers many opportunites for you to get involved.  Below is a brief description of our current ministries.  For more details please Contact Us.  Your skills, talents and spiritual gifts are welcomed and appreciated. 

Discipleship

Choir

 

If you enjoy singing, you are invited to join our Choir!  Auditions are not necessary - all voices are welcome.  The choir practices Thursday evenings at 7pm and sings Sunday mornings at the 10:30am service from September to mid-June.   <back to top  

 

Altar Guild

 

The Altar Guild prepares the altar and sanctuary for Sunday services, weddings, funerals and other special services.  They also care for the religious items like altar hangings, linens, silver and communion vessels.  Members work in teams of two or three one weekend per month.  Training is required and new members are always welcome.   <back to top  

 

Instrumentalist

 

If you play an instrument (violin, piano, guitar, etc) we would love to have you share your talent during a special service or during the summer months.    <back to top  

 

Reader

 

Readers are those who read the lessons and psalm at the 10:30am service.  Training is available to those interested.  This ministry is open to both youth and adults.    <back to top  

 

Acolyte

 

Youth ages 11 to 17 assist by lighting the altar candles, carrying the cross and assisting the priest during Communion.  Acolytes are trained by the priest.   <back to top  

 

Eucharistic Minister

 

Eucharistic Ministers or Chalice Bearers are people who have been licensed by the Bishop to administer Communion during the Holy Eucharist.  They may also be asked to read or acolyte.  Training is provided.   <back to top  

 

Eucharistic Visitor

 

Similar to our Eucharistic Ministers, the Eucharistic Visitors are assistants who are licensed by the Bishop to administer Communion away from Saint George's to those who cannot attend Sunday Services.  As an Euchristic Minister you may bring Communion to private houses, hospitals and nursing homes.  Safeguarding Training is required.   <back to top  

 

Ushers

 

At each service, Ushers greet worshippers and distribute the bulletin.  Working in teams of two, Ushers also count the attendance, collect the offering and direct people to the altar during Communion.    <back to top  

 

Tellers

 

The Teller's function is to record the congregation's contributions received each Sunday.  They work in teams of two and complete a 'Tally Sheet' that helps our Treasurer accurately account for pledges.   <back to top  

 

Vestry

 

The Vestry is the governing body of Saint George's and consists of nine members.  Every year three members are elected to serve a three year term at our Annual Meeting in January.  The work of the Vestry is crucial to the life of the congregation.     <back to top  

 

Sunday School Teachers

 

Saint George's Sunday School Teachers and Youth Leaders guide our children and youth through their life in Christ.  On-line training is required.     <back to top  

 

Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

 

Our ECW provideds outreach, ministry and fellowship.  All women are welcom to join their meetings at 10am on the first Tuesday of the month (September - June).  Our ladies enjoy many activities including blanket making, luncheons, game nights and rummage sales.  In addition, the ECW coordinates all funeral luncheons held at Saint George's.   <back to top  

 

Prayer Partners

 

Participants draw names for a 'secret' prayer partner at the end of each year.  Members pray for their partner throughout the year and send cards on birthdays and other special occasions.      <back to top
