Lay Ministries of King of Peace Episcopal Church
As a church, we emphasize the mystery of encountering God in worship. We believe all people are called to be ministers and to serve God, his Church and the community in which they live. In our Book of Common Prayer, it states that the minister of the church are lay persons, bishops, priests, and deacons. It also states that the ministry of lay persons is to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever they may be and, according to the gifts given them, to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world; and to take their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church.
Since our beginning in 2000, the congregants of King of Peace have gathered to worship together and to serve others, both within and outside our community of faith. Over the years, a number of ministries have developed within our parish to cover a range of needs and purposes. Some are to support worship and activities of our ongoing parish life. Others are an effort to touch the lives of those who have never even visited our church. Each ministry is open to all who consider King of Peace their church home. You are invited to participate in any of our ministries and programs as a way of finding a place to love and to worship the Lord in our community. Working together with other parishioners will strengthen your own journey of faith by offering nourishment through fellowship with others. We hope you will decide to find a ministry that is calling you.
