Grow in Faith
Here at St. Nick’s, we value participation in the various ministries around our parish, such as:
The worship commission is an advisory committee chaired by the rector of the parish.
Worship is central to our life at Saint Nicholas’ – a joyful response to God’s goodness and love. Episcopal worship is based on the Book of Common Prayer. Just as most churches sing from the same book, we pray from the same book—which is based on the oldest public worship in the English language. We celebrate communion each Sunday, following Jesus’ command to his disciples that we do this “in remembrance of him.”
Altar Guild is a way to worship God in the reverence of preparing the table for communion. Other responsibilities include preparation for funerals, weddings,baptisms and seasonal celebrations.
Serving at the Altar
Acolytes, lectors and lay Eucharistic ministers assist in worship. They are parishioners who administer the chalice and assist at the Eucharist and other services under the direction of
Deacon Tom Burns.
Flower Guild prepares the flowers to grace our Altar.
Each Sunday during the year, except during Lent, parishioners may donate funds for altar flowers and other decorations for the church as a memorial or thanksgiving.
Daughters of the King
Daughters of the King is a spiritual sisterhood of lay women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism.
Special EventsOccasions such as baptisms, confirmation, marriages, funerals and seasonal celebrations such as Christmas and Easter mark significant occurrences in our congregational life.
