The work of our Altar Guild is vital to the beauty of our worship services. The guild sets up our altar for all services, maintains linens and vestments, and purchases and arranges altar flowers. They also maintain kits for shut-in Communions.
CARING MINISTRIES COMMISSION
One of the standing commissions of the Vestry, the Commission seeks to offer an "in-reach" ministry to members of our community who may need a helping hand due to illness, death, age or infirmity.
A small group that meets weekly to practice meditative and contemplative prayer.
All Angels Episcopal Church Women are known, both in the Church and the wider community, for their strong dedication to outreach. They meet monthly, November through May, for lunch, fellowship, and an informative program or guest speaker. Our ECW plays an important part in our parish outreach.
The primary duty of the Finance Committee is the development and monitoring of an annual budget. The Committee also recommends financial policies and procedures to the Vestry.
LAY MINISTRY IN WORSHIP
Involvement of the laity is an integral part of every worship service at All Angels. Parishioners participate as greeters, ushers, lectors, chalice bearers, and servers. A specially trained and licensed group of Lay Eucharistic Ministers take communion to shut-ins.
NEWCOMERS AND HOSPITALITY COMMISSION
All Angels is known as a warm and friendly home. Welcoming visitors and newcomers is an essential part of our parish life. Our Greeters strive to make our visitors feel included from the time they arrive at the church entrance to the warm welcome extended by the Rector at the close of the service. A weekly Coffee Hour following the service provides an opportunity to get to know more about us. A Welcome Table located in the church entrance displays recent newsletters, brochures, and other informative material.
The Committee oversees all aspects of our church's facilities and grounds, including our computer systems, insurance, contracts, and inventory record. The Committee and other volunteers are active maintaining our physical plant and beautiful grounds.
All Angels places the highest value upon Christian stewardship, and to that end the whole Vestry serves as our stewardship committee. We believe that stewardship goes beyond our commitment of time, talent, and treasure to encompass all facets of our life. Our support has been generously given over the years, not only to build, maintain and expand the church, but also to give to those in need beyond our doors. Time is given freely in all organizations that make us a whole living church. All Angels by the Sea has a wealth of talent, and as a cause arises, we find the answer in the natural endowments of our parishioners. Thus we strive to live out our personal stewardship through our constantly expanding ministries within and beyond the parish.
