Parish Life

The Parish Life Team is in charge of fun. Friendship and time spent together as a community are important aspects of the life of the Church. Parish Life helps to build our community by planning and hosting several gatherings throughout the year. Implementing these events requires the talent and cooperation from all sectors of our church community to ensure their success. 

Here is a sample of some events that Parish Life supports:

  • Weekly Coffee Hour
    (COFFEE HOUR ANGELS every Sunday after the 8:30am service, come together in the Common Room area to welcome newcomers and visit with old and new friends. Weekly hosts provide a light snack, make coffee or a drink of their choice and offer friendly conversation and a warm welcome to all. We encourage all members to sign up and enjoy the fellowship. 
  • Quarterly Potlucks
  • Ice Cream Socials
  • The Great Pancake Supper
  • Receptions
  • Annual Parish Meeting
  • Lenten Soup Suppers
  • Annual Low Country Boil
  • any other special events

If you love being part of a fun team, meeting new people, visiting with old friends and creating long lasting relationships consider being part of the Parish Life Ministry. Parish Life offers many opportunities to get involved at all levels of commitment.
