Join the Outreach Ministries of King of Peace Episcopal Church
Outreach and evangelism ministries at King of Peace include groups and activities reaching out to the larger community and responding to local community needs as well as evangelism. In the Book of Common Prayer, a question is asked and answered: “Who are the ministers of the church? The ministers of the church are lay persons, bishops, priests, and deacons.” Each of us is a minister of the church. King of Peace offers a variety of opportunities to serve within the church. These dedicated groups welcome additional helping hands, minds, and hearts in these services. Vestry Liaisons are Jim Hudson, Dave Callen and Rob Davenport-Ray.
