Ministries

 

Children’s Ministry

St. Michael’s offers a full range of Sunday programming for children of all ages, including unique chapel services for ages 2 through third grade, where children serve as acolytes, crucifers and ushers. In addition, each age group learns of God’s love, through story, activity and song in classes taught by experienced teams. The first grade curriculum prepares that age for the First Communion Celebration. Children in grades 4-8 attend worship with parents, then attend traditional Sunday School classes taught by experienced leaders. Our Sixth Grade curriculum prepares children for Confirmation.

Youth Ministry

The St. Michael's Episcopal Youth Community, or EYC, is among our most vibrant parish ministries. Lead by Abby Van Noppen, our Director of Youth Ministry, and a team of adult leaders, students meet regularly for youth group, bible study, fellowship, and fun events.

Young Adult Ministry (YAMS)

Young adults in their post-college years gather monthly for fellowship, spiritual enrichment and local mission work. We host bar nights, gather for Bible Study, sometimes meeting with the OWLS (Older, Wiser, Loving, Sharing), group for multi-generational social gatherings. Share brunch after church, glean a field for the hungry or simply find other Episcopalians in the same life stage. The YAMS is there for all in their 20s and 30s.

 

Episcopal Church Women (ECW)

At the core of our parish is a group of women dedicated to serving God through fellowship and mission. ECW officially stands for Episcopal Church Women, but also means “Everyone Caring and Working.” As a member of St. Michael’s, every woman is automatically a member of the ECW. We encourage women to participate in ECW by attending a General Membership Meeting, helping with one of the many church or community activities ECW sponsors, or by joining an ECW chapter.

The Lifelong Disciple

Our Lifelong Disciple program fosters Christian formation for adults in all stages of the Christian path.

Adult Formation Recordings

Our Sunday Adult Formation program focuses on spirituality, key figures of the Bible, and stories of the Christian journey. Explore our offerings here.

 

Women’s Bible Study

Each fall and winter, the women of the parish gather for a Bible Study series led by Frances Penick. Through videos, workbooks and discussion, Frances leads the group through various books of the Bible using studies by theologians like Lisa Harper and others.

Men’s Ministry

Our Men's Ministry offers every man in the parish opportunities for spiritual enrichment and fellowship

OWLS

If you are 65 or older, the OWLS ministry — “Older, Wiser, Loving, Sharing,”  is for you.
