"Our parish consists of members who all have a strong spirit of team-work and the willingness to get things done whether the tasks be putting on a church supper or breakfast, or preparing and operating the Wasington County Fair food booth, or cleaning the church and grounds."

 

Throughout the year we get together for breakfasts between services, suppers incorporating events like Pound Auctions and Basket Mania. In the spring & fall we schedule clean-ups and plantings with cookouts / luncheons. The Episcopal Charities drive is always well received and has been very successful.


Edwards Hall is an open social gathering place attached to our church. It is used not only for meetings, parish events and religious education but also to support local organizations e.g. Richmond Homemakers, Alcoholics Anonymous, and a Girl Scout troop.


We operate a Food Booth at the annual Washington County Fair that provides a great opportunity for a majority of the parish to work together on this project. Not only does this keep a planning group busy throughout the year but a crew of over 70 work shifts during fair week. It is truly amazing how enjoyable this work can be. This activity provides scholarship funding for the post-secondary educational and vocational endeavors of our parish members.


A Memorial Garden has been started on the property and the initial phase of planting has gone very well. A plan for expansion and development of the Memorial garden has been developed. Stepping stones, garden blocks fabricated of stained glass pieces set in mortar, constructed by the Sunday school children are placed throughout the garden.


We support a local food pantry with a monthly donation offering and two local scholarships. One of them is for sending campers to our diocesan ECC camp and the other is for post-secondary school education of our parishioners. Donations of Linus Blankets, (quilts, hand sewn with love and prayers by members of the ECW), have been made to Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
