Lay Eucharistic Ministers and Acolytes

Leader: Mrs. Michele Jump

The Catechism of the Episcopal Church declares that the mission of the church is to restore all people to unity with God and with each other in Christ. The church pursues its mission as it prays and worships, proclaims the gospel, and promotes justice, peace, and love. The church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members. The ministry of lay persons is to represent Christ and his church: to bear witness to him wherever they may be; and, according to the gifts given  them, to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world; and to take their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church.
