Episcopal Church with Lay Ministries and Fellowship
Welcomes the Church Community in Sarasota, FL
Lay ministries, duties performed by non-clerical members, are the backbone of every church community. They are the builders of our community. It is the first face you see, the first hand that greets you, the people who prepare the altar and the voice that shares the gospel. St. Margaret’s encourages every member to get involved in Lay Ministries and to feel free to even create one that will be beneficial to the community. Training is provided several times a year for all members. Fellowship is the conduit to creating and developing a community of believers. You can attend church every Sunday and still not know anyone. You need fellowship opportunities to develop close ties with others. There are many ways to get better acquainted with other members of the community but nothing is more fun than sharing a meal, taking a hike, or going on an outing together.
Greeters are so important to our community. They are the first faces a person sees upon arriving at St. Margaret for worship. They are the first hands they shake. Greeters are responsible for getting the names of visitors, making them feel welcome and answer any questions they may have. Greeters work together in pairs. Opportunities are available to be trained and serve as a greeter.
