New Members Ministry
The Christian code of hospitality should be ours
A guest comes, Christ comes
Guests are truly our sisters and brothers
We love God in loving our sisters and brothers
The goods of our world were given for all to share.
St. Mary's is known for its welcoming and abundant hospitality. The Committee is on hand to provide luncheons for special occasions, and help with parish social functions. They are called upon to assist families with special coffee hours for baptisms, or luncheons following a funeral or memorial service. The committee is made up of a team of 6 - 8 people. Members help to provide food, set the tables, and clean up.
Coffee hour is a special time for fellowship following the 8 AM and 10 AM Service on Sundays. Coffee, tea and juice are accompanied by breakfast cake, cookies, fruit or small sandwiches. Refreshments whether elaborate or simple are always enjoyed. Coffee hour is a pleasant, unhurried time for catching up with church family friends. New members and visitors are warmly welcomed at coffee hour.
It should be noted that our parish potlucks held for the Annual Meeting and other special events, are particularly bountiful, delicious and not to be missed!
