New changes at church. Take a look!
Have you ever thought about a ministry of your own? Sept. 12 will be a great day at St. Augustine’s. It’s the day that the church once again sees TWO service times: 8:30 and 10:30. It’s also the Ministry Fair. The Ministry Fair is one of the most important days of the year. YOU can make a commitment to the church with your time and talents. There are many ministries in which to serve: • Young Couples and Singles: This ministry began last year, and the group has met once so far for a potluck. Heather
and Brian Leonard will lead. • Daughters of the King: This loving group prays for the needs of others. • Choir: They need your voices! • ECW: These Episcopal women serve our church. • Anonymous Encouragers: This is a new ministry that will send anonymous letters of positive encouragement to random people in OKC. • Shining Knights: Dinner and fellowship with church members. • Grounds committee: Do you have a green thumb? • Children’s education: Many
hands are needed to teach our young ones. • Hospitality: Help welcome new and old members. • Worship leaders: Serve at the altar during service. • Lectors: For those who want to read Scripture but not necessarily lead worship. • Communications: Help get the word out about our church. • Outreach: Take God’s Word out to groups. • Acolytes: Young people help serve during the service. There are many other ministries that need your help. Come learn about them and sign up!
