Sharing at Church

The word liturgy means work of the people. Every person has an important role in our worship. For those participating in specific functions during the service, training and instruction is provided. Might God be calling you to share with us in one of these areas?

Altar Guild

Members care for altar, linens, and vessels used during worship services. The Altar Guild works behind the scenes by setting up the altar area for all our weekly and special services ahead of time and cleaning up when the service is over.


Members lead the congregation in music and verbal responses during our 10AM and special services and provides music during the offering.


Carries the cross in procession, lights and extinguishes the candles, holds the Gospel book, and assists the celebrant during the 10AM and special services.

Eucharistic Ministers

Licensed by the Episcopal Church in Delaware to assist in the distribution of the Cup during communion services. Also may read the lessons or prayers of the people.


Welcome everyone as they enter church for worship and assist our guests in getting acclimated for the service.   

Healing Ministry

Pray with interested parishioners during the time when communion is being distributed. Currently this ministry is done at the 8AM service; however, we would love to expand it to the 10AM service.


Hand service booklets and bulletins to people as they enter the church; assist with the offering and presentation of the people’s gifts to God; assist the congregation in coming forward for communion; and pick up items left in the pews after the service.
