Youth Ministry (Click for more information)
Youth in grades 6-12 meet on Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Meetings begin with fellowship and a light meal or snack followed by an activity. Our time together includes discussions on topics related to the lives of Christian teenagers today, community service projects, praise and worship time, and fun community-building activities. The youth of our parish participate in diocesan events such as lock-ins, mission trips, and summer camps as well as national events such as 30 hour famine and EYE (Episcopal Youth Event).
Cursillo is a three-day weekend which begins on Thursday evening and ends on Sunday. During the three days, participants hear a variety of talks given by lay persons and clergy, who have spent time working together, planning and preparing for the Weekend. A Cursillo Weekend is not a retreat, with fasting or extended periods of silence. Rather, it is an experience in Christian education, where participants have an opportunity to meet clergy and laity who are seeking to strengthen their faith. Shared prayer, worship, study, music, fellowship, laughter, and tears all work together to create a loving atmosphere where one can feel the reality of God's free and unconditional love.
The men of St. Anne’s join to create a fellowship environment that prepares men for Christian service and leadership. Their vision is to be active Christian men who provide leadership and service to their families, the church, each other and the community. All men of are welcome!
The women of St. Anne’s join in a fellowship for the purpose of deepening their spiritual life and fostering active participation in the whole church program. All women are encouraged to participate and experience the joy of this fellowship and ministry.
Coffee Hour ministry encourages and facilitates Sunday morning fellowship, following the 10 am service (or, in Summer, the 9 am service). Participants in this ministry ensure coffee is hot, cups are ready, and goodies are arranged! The sign-up is located in Miller Parish Hall in front of the kitchen wall.
Friends of St. Benedict
Friends of St. Benedict meet on the first Thursday of the month, from 6:00 to 8:00. Each gathering includes a simple meal, prayer, and study of the Rule of St. Benedict and how it applies to our lives in the world. This is the local chapter of a national organization.
Creative Kindness meets twice a month on Tuesdays, to quilt and sew blankets and lap robes for hospitals, shelters and transitional housing.
Prayer Shawl and Baptismal Blanket Ministry
Prayer Shawl & Baptismal Blanket Ministry meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month from 5:30 to 6:45. This unique ministry meets to hand craft baptism blankets and prayer shawls. The baptism blankets are provided to each newly baptized infant at St Anne’s, along with a personalized banner to mark the occasion. Prayer shawls are also hand-crafted and are provided to those individuals in the parish who are in need; spirit, soul, or body.
