Ministries

Grow in Faith

Here at St. Nick’s, we value participation in the various ministries around our parish, such as:

Worship Committee

38-IMG_3527
The worship committee 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.” All are welcome at this table.

Altar Guild

Cropped Pentecost
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.
