Why We Serve?
We believe that the church, as Christ’s body, is the hands and the feet of Jesus. In the words of St. Teresa,
Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet. Yours are the eyes, you are His body. Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks compassion on this world. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
Practically, this means that we are intentional about loving our city. We seek the common good by proclaiming, in word and in deed, the transforming story of Jesus Christ.
Ways to Serve
Austin Street CENTER
Austin Street Center is our main outreach ministry. We feed nearly 400 homeless men and women on the second Sundays of each month. Sandwiches are made, our famous salad is prepared, and goodies are purchased all in time for a team of folks to drive down to the Center in order to serve the food. For more information on how you can help serve in this ministry, please contact Carol Gogates.
Brotherhood of St. Andrew's
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew’s is an international men’s ministry in the Episcopal Church. The mission of the Brotherhood is to bring men and boys into the deepest possible relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, by living a life committed to prayer, study, and service. Our local chapter meets in the chapel on the fourth Sunday of each month following the service. A special kickoff is on March 31. For more information on how you can help serve in this ministry, please contact Jim Cox.
Music Ministry & Worship
Do you love to worship? Then consider participating in one of our worship ministries. If you like to sing, or if you play a musical instrument, then contact our organist and choirmaster. If you would like to participate in the liturgy, then consider becoming an Acolyte. Or, if you want to work "behind the scenes" to support the worship, then consider joining the Altar Guild.
