Introducing Our Ministries By Fr. Bill Combs, Rector
We hope that our ministry summaries will serve as a window into the vibrant life that is St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church. Please click around the areas listed on the right side of your screen. If you are looking for ways to participate in our community life, but are unsure of where to begin, all of the descriptions on our various Ministry pages can help you focus your attention to where you feel most called.
If you would like to participate in a particular ministry, but just have never known whom to contact, you will find contact information at the click of your mouse. If you do not see an area of ministry that you feel would be important to our parish life and the lives of our community, please let me know. I am always open and interested to hear new ideas and ways we can be Christ's hands and heart in our worship, in our parish life, and in the world.
If you find yourself in need of a particular ministry (Stephen's Ministers, a quilt, etc.) our ministry leaders and participants are more than happy to offer their help, hope, and care to meet those needs as best they can.
My heartfelt thanks go out to all of our ministry leaders and participants. You are the heartbeat and the lifeblood that make St. Gabriel's such a rich, dynamic, and warm community of faith.
