Fellowship with Lay Ministries Welcomes the Church
Community at an Episcopal Church 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.

Lay Readers

Lay Readers are the ministers who read the Old Testament stories and make them come alive to the congregation. The Old Testament is rich and full of drama.  It is truly a wonderful experience sharing the old stories with each other. Training is available and readers rotate monthly.
