From Your Worship Committee

Have you ever wished you had the opportunity to be a Server, Crucifer or Torchbearer? If this is something you have always wanted to do, or even if you haven’t really thought about it before, this is an invitation to any parishioners to speak to Fr. Andrew by phone or e-mail at The time commitment would be once every 3 or 4 weeks.

Ministry of Hospitality Opportunity

In the letter to the Romans, Paul encourages us as a community to practice hospitality. If you would like to participate in the ministry of hospitality by helping with Coffee hour after the 10:30 a.m. service. There is a new Coffee Hour list posted on the Manderley Bulletin Board. Please consider taking a turn to prepare coffee, tea, and goodies. It doesn’t have to be a big spread, a loaf or two or some cookies, or cheese and crackers, would be just fine. If several people went together it makes it much easier, - and fun. All you have to do is bring milk and cream, and whatever food you want to provide. The sugar, coffee and tea are here. Then take what you spent on the items you brought out of the proceeds from the basket on the table. 

Rite of Healing

 Regularly, on the second Sunday of the month for those who wish it, there is an opportunity to pray specifically for healing. Since Biblical times, this prayer has been accompanied by the anointing with oil. At 8:30, please bring a book with you to the Communion Rail to indicate that you would like to be anointed. At 10:30, please proceed to the chapel after you have received communion.

 Daily devotions

Copies of Forward Day by Day are available at the back of the church. This devotion includes a short passage of scripture, a brief reflection and a prayer focus for each day of the week. This is one way to stay connected from Monday to Saturday! Forward Day by Day is online here »


If you desire prayers for yourself, family, or friends, please contact the parish office.   Members of the prayer chain will uphold your name (s) in daily prayer for 30 days. If you wish to be upheld in prayer for another month, please re-contact the office.
