Ministries

Church Ministries
Stephen MinistryA one-on-one ministry that provides distinctively Christian care into the lives of people who are facing a personal crisis or who find themselves needing a little extra support in their everyday life. Stephen Ministers receive nearly a year of in-depth training and continual spiritual support as they render care to people in need. Persons willing to be trained for this very effective ministry must commit to 2 years of service and attend all semi-monthly training/supervision sessions.

AcolytesAn opportunity for youth to assist the clergy at the altar during Sunday worship. Acolyte training is conducted twice a year, and regularly scheduled Sunday duty consists of approximately one service a month.
Contact: Selma Lindsay
Altar GuildMembers of the Altar Guild aid the clergy in preparing the Sanctuary for Sunday services and other worship during the week. Duties include ordering flowers, preparing the altar, cleaning altar linens, and tidying up the Sacristy after worship. At special holidays the entire Guild membership unites to prepare decorations, and the Guild hosts an annual celebration supper each year for its members.
Contact: Gail Winkley

Lay Readers
Lay Readers assist at the altar during Sunday worship (and on other special occasions) by distributing the wine during communion and reading one or more of the assigned Scriptures. Lay Readers vest for each service, and have a one-time training when they begin the ministry.
Contact: Selma Lindsay
LectorsLectors assist in Sunday worship by reading the first lesson, usually an Old Testament Scripture—and also by leading the Prayers during worship.

Music MinistryWorship is at the center of what we do as believers. We believe that God loves to see His people worship together, and that everything we do in worship should be done with excellence as a sacrifice to Him.
Apart from the organ, there are many ways one can participate in Saint Paul’s music ministry. The most obvious way to serve is on our instrumental team, or as a singer in the praise choir. But we also welcome those who can offer an instrumental piece for the prelude before worship, as well as those who wish to serve as vocalists for our 9:15 AM service.

Ushers/GreetersMen and women welcome parishioners and guests as they arrive in the Sanctuary, distributing programs, helping people to find open seats, bringing the offering forward and directing the congregation to the communion rail.
Weekly Healing ServiceEvery Thursday morning at 10 AM one of the clergy leads a worship service in the Sanctuary, with an emphasis on healing prayer, anointing with oil and laying on of hands. The service is followed by a Bible study and refreshments in the Tuck Room (across from the parish offices).

Coffee Hour MinistryCoffe Hour MinistryEach Sunday after the 7:45 and 9:15 services, treats and coffee are provided by dedicated teams of hospitality experts! To be a part of this important Sunday ministry, contact Jean Letizia

Prayer MinistersPrayer teams of lay persons who have been extensively trained, provide support, encouragement, and prayer for healing during Holy Communion at each Sunday service. All prayer concerns are kept confidential.

Counter’s MinistryA dedicated group of parishioners working each Sunday after the last service to count, tabulate and post parishioners’ weekly contribution. If you are a detail person who works well with numbers, this is the ministry for you!
Contact: Carol Gurski

Christian CaringThe Christian Caring Committee sends cards on behalf of the parish to those who are convalescing or celebrating, provides meals for special needs (e.g. when you’re ill, just delivered a baby, etc.), makes visits to shut-ins, and is able to bring Holy Communion to those who request it.
Contact: Barbara Davidson by calling the Church office at 1-203-775=9587
Dining-In MinistryFor those who have just had a baby, are convalescing, or post-surgery—or just in need. This team of caring cooks will provide you with dinners while you recover.
The Vestry
The Vestry is the group of elected church members who, with the clergy and staff, lead our parish. Their job is to provide for the upkeep of our facilities, maintain fiduciary responsibility for the parish’s finances, and work with the rest of the leadership team in discerning and implementing the mission God has for this parish.

At Saint Paul’s, the Vestry is composed of 14 members. Persons serving on the Vestry are elected for a three year term at the parish’s Annual Meeting (the last Sunday of each January). Person’s eligible for election need to have been baptized and confirmed, active members of the parish, and committed to tithing (or working toward the tithe).
Prayer ChainOur prayer chain is available 24/7 to pray for needs from our congregation, and even around the world. The team commits to pray for all requests for 14 days, at the end of which we ask the referrer to re-up the request. Requests can be submitted via the website, the parish office, or by calling Walter Von Egidy.
