Backpacks for Kids: Serve
In Prince William County, there are many children that are food insecure. Food insecure is “the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food.” In Prince William County, over 19,000 elementary school children qualified for free or reduced-price school lunches. Although these children are provided meals during the week, some do not have access to food on the weekends. We want to ensure these children don’t have to worry where their next meal is coming from by providing children with weekend food bags.
Lay Ministry: Serve
Throughout the Anglican service you will see different people taking on different roles. Some people known as acolytes will be doing things like wearing robes & carrying the cross in and out of the service, other people will be handing out the offering, some people reading the prayers in the bulletin from the microphone, some ushering, working together to create a smooth and orderly, God-honoring service within the Anglican tradition. If you are interested in trying out serving in any of these capacities please feel free to reach out to the contact person of the particular lay ministry role description that you are interested in.
Kids third grade through high school also serve during the worship service as acolytes. This is a fantastic way for them to join the worship ministry at an early age, serve others, and learn about the importance of worship in the church.

Ushers and Greeters:
Usher and greeters meet the parishioners as they arrive to worship on Sunday morning. They distribute bulletins, have a role in the safety and security of the congregation during the service and offer assistance during the service to those needing mobility help or direction.
