Fellowship and Hospitality
As the body of Christ, we are strengthened in service to God by our relationships with one another. There are many ways to engage in the life of this parish and to further connect with other parishioners. Sunday morning worship and fellowship is an excellent place to begin, and numerous opportunities are available for small group study, fellowship, and service to the community. These opportunities include the Women’s Bible Study, Young Adult Fellowship, Mission Monday programs, volunteering in a variety of ways, including in our soup kitchen or shelter programs.
Hospitality is an important part of our parish life. It take many forms, the most important of which is ensure a prevailing spirit of welcome whenever and wherever we gather to worship or for any other purpose. There are many times throughout the year when people can gather for food, drink, and fellowship. These include the weekly Coffee Hour after the 11:15 a.m. Sunday Service, the Gathering Place after the 9:00 a.m. Sunday Service, the Reception following Choral Evensong when that service is offered between October and May each year, a series of Rectory Receptions in October to which all parishioners are invited, dinners before Mission Monday events which focus on various outreach ministries, the annual parish picnic in September, and the annual Grinch Night party in December. In addition to these relatively fixed occasions, others are announced from time to time during the year.
