I felt connected to church and God, but only sporadically attended church. When the plate was passed I would contribute ‐ something. But finally, when we visited the in‐laws at Christmas one year, we had an epiphany – we should see about joining a church at home!
The next Sunday we visited the first contender. You just have a feeling, and it just wasn’t quite right. As I recall, the interior seemed stark, and more importantly, we were generally ignored after the service.
It turned out that the rector was ill that day, but we had a service with lay people. We were also introduced to numerous parishioners, many of whom are still in attendance now forty‐three years later.
You are invited to join us in a host of services that will likely benefit you as well as the church as a whole. Among these are Sunday school teachers, choristers, lay ministers, food ministry, flower guild, maintenance of the grounds and building, and many more.
And yes, we are all invited to bring our monetary offerings. We need to keep the lights on, so to speak, and need to pay our staff a decent wage.
