Calling all chili cooks! Please join us for our annual fundraiser for “Pan Can," Pancreatic Cancer Research Association, and our 2020 Mission Trip.

Appetizers and desserts will be served, and 50/50 Raffle and Raffle Basket tickets will be sold for a chance to win awesome prizes!

Each Sunday, members of the Altar Guild
carry out the meaningful ministry of preparing our place of
worship, in particular the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Members are responsible for setting the altar each Sunday,
preparing for baptisms, weddings, and funerals, and caring for
the linens, and vessels. Altar Guild members serve on a
rotation, so it is not an every Sunday responsibility, only one
Sunday a month. If you are interested in joining this ministry,
please contact Kathy Smith at 631-979-9247.
ATTENTION STUDENTS: If you are a student who
needs help meeting your community service requirements,
please contact Karen Schifellite at 631-745-6752 or
Brian Forberg at 631-418-6157. They will be happy to assist
you with a project at church.
DRIVERS NEEDED! If you are willing to drive someone to
church (and home again) once a month on a Sunday for the
10:45 liturgy from the Northport area, please see Pr.
