HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED JOINING THE

ALTAR GUILD?

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. 

Volunteers needed!

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.

Schoepflin.


USHERS FOR 10:45 A.M. WORSHIP: We are in need of

ushers for the 10:45 a.m. worship services. If you are

interested in becoming an usher please respond to Jane Stark

at 631-754-2632. Students who volunteer will receive credit

for their service. No experience is necessary!
