ORDER OF ST. LUKE
Our Order of St. Luke sponsors a monthly Healing Eucharist at noon on the 3rd Wednesdays of the month, year-round. Contact Dss. Mary Jane Mathieu for information regarding OSL.
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
Helen Lankford, leader of our Prayer Shawl Ministry, and her team of knitters meet monthly (normally on the 4th Saturday of each month) in the Library of the Edman Building. The Prayer Shawl Ministry continues to be a very successful ministry of Church of the Holy Communion. The ladies knit shawls for people who are hurting and are in need of comforting. The shawls are knitted with love and are prayed over and blessed prior to being given to the recipient. The shawls are also given on happy occasions, such as the birth of a baby.
Head usher, Dick Elliott, and his team of ushers assist in all of the church services by greeting members and visitors, helping with seating issues, and are there to help with any emergency situation that may arise.
Our Greeters are the first to welcome all those who come to worship with us. They are the first to smile, guide, and answer any need that is addressed. They hand out bulletins, offer our nursery services for those with young families, and accompany people to Sunday School classes. Contact Kara Houser for information regarding our Greeters program.
