While everyone’s participation is essential for our worship, we do have identified ministries that help assure that everything is offered with beauty and joy. Following are some of the ministries anyone is welcome to explore and make their own. Please speak to someone involved in that ministry for more information, or express your interest or questions to one of the clergy.
