Lay ministry is a primary necessity in the life of Amazing Grace Anglican Church.
The apostle Paul tells us that it is the job of those in leadership to "equip the saints" for works of service."And it is he who has given some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip God's people for work in his services, for the building up of the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity inherent in our faith and in our knowledge of the Son of God~ to mature manhood, measured by nothing less but the full stature of Christ." (Ephesians 4:11-13)
On this page you will see just some of the opportunities for service in our church. Look them over, and prayerfully consider your part in the mission and ministry of Amazing Grace Anglican Church.

The function of the Lector is to proclaim the word of God. The Sunday of their assigned week, the Lector will proceed to the lectern to read a Biblical text, other than the Gospel.
The Lay Readers will be reading from both the Old and New Testament, and will also lead the congregation in the reading of the Psalm.
If you are interested in becoming a Lector, please see JoAnn McGarry.
Children's Sunday school takes place at 10:30 am. The children will start in the Sanctuary; retreat to their classroom before the first reading; and return to their family during the "Sharing of the Peace" so they can partake in Holy Communion. If you are interested in teaching Children's Sunday School, please see Diane Bottorf All training and materials are provided for you.
If you would like to help with our after service fellowship hour, or donate items for that special time, contact the church office.
There is always a need for additional helping hands. If you are able to help out with assisting others in need, please let Paul Ritzau know your availability.
