OUR

MINISTRIES

Liturgy is described as the summit toward which all activity of the Church is directed and the source from which we derive our faithfulness as Disciples of Christ. Holy Spirit parishioners are invited to participate in our Sacred Liturgy as facilitators and ministers.

 

We contribute to building the Kingdom of God by engaging people in all life stages and providing opportunities for involvement that promote the common good of our parish and community. As members of this Stewardship Parish, all parishioners are invited to live the Stewardship Way of Life through offerings of Time Talent and Treasure.
