Missions and Ministries
At the Episcopal Church of the Holy Apostles, we believe that our 'church centered' ministries and our 'world centered' ministries are of equal importance in the realm of God. We believe we are each required by our baptismal covenant to minister to God's people in God's world, according to our diverse gifts and callings. We are always -- always! -- looking for people who are willing to share their gifts and energy in service to our church, community, and world.
Some of our ministries are "inside" ministries that take place in the church building, fellowship hall, or individual homes. Some are "outside" ministries undertaken by individuals who are passionate about sharing their time and talent in the broader community - storytelling and dog training, woodworking and painting, volunteering in animal shelters and so much more. For more information on any of the things we do, please call the church office 847.526.7148 and leave a message stating your interest -- we'll have our contact person get back to you as soon as possible. Don't forget to leave your name, phone number, and email address if possible!
