Our Ministries and Commissions are the ways in which we connect with one another to do ministry. Most fall in one of the three possible areas, following our Parish Motto: Worship God. Be Transformed in Christ. Change the World. The remaining fall under a fourth area, Ministries of Governance—those ministries and commissions who exist solely to enable the first three to take place.

Worship God – Ministries of Worship, Music & Fine Arts

All Worship ministries are overseen by the Rector and his delegated staff. Various Ministries of Worship are the creation of the Rector and report regularly to him. The Rector attends Ministry meetings as requested and able. The Rector also hosts a quarterly Worship Gathering to provide a context for prayerful conversation among parishioners with regard to the worship of our congregation. 

Be Transformed in Christ – Ministries of Faith Formation & Pastoral Care

All Faith Formation & Pastoral Care ministries are overseen by the Rector and his delegated staff.

Change the World – Ministries of Mission & Outreach
