    Sermons are recorded and may be accessed on Facebook.


    Our music leader, Sarah Rose, is a talented pianist and vocalist.

  • bible study

    Bible study resumed in October.

    Our Bible Study, we call "Discovering the Bible Again," is held each week after our Sunday service and fellowship. We currently meet in parish hall at around 10:30, following our 9:00a service.


    We are currently studying Acts of the Apostles, led by Fr. Vern.

  • healing prayer service

    Due to the pandemic, we are not currently holding our healing service on the first Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.

  • men's breakfast

    Held at Parish Hall at 8:00a on the first Saturday of the month, all parish men are invited.

  • prayer tent

    [Due to the pandemic, we are not currently holding a prayer tent.] 


    We have a Prayer Tent, typically at Five Points parking lot, on the 3rd Saturday of the month, 10:00a - 2:00p.  All parishioners are welcome to join us for prayer, as well as anyone who would like prayer. This is a very rewarding ministry; many people stop in for prayer and some come back later to tell of prayers being answered.


    The Diocese of Mid-Atlantic has published an article in their November 2019 newsletter, The Mid-Atlantic Messengerabout our prayer tent. You may read it here.

  • women's fellowship

    [Not currently being held due to the pandemic.] Our Women's Fellowship group meets the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30p at members' houses on a rotating basis. It is a time of good fellowship and prayer and discussion of how we may enrich our spiritual lives.
