MINISTRIES


MARY'S TABLE

Mary's Table is a fellowship, parish-wide potluck dinner hosted periodically throughout the year by a different person or couple. It is a time during which parishioners are invited to join in fellowship and just simply enjoy one another's company. And---more often than not---the "potluck" aspect of the dinner becomes gourmet! Dates and times for dinner are set by the hosts.

Volunteer Opportunities:
Mary's Table is a great way to engage in radical hospitality by inviting fellow parishioners into your home. It is also a wonderful mixer for Newcomers!

GODLY PLAY

The use of Montessori's approach to education has been adapted to Godly Play in order to stimulate children's active participation in story and ritual and to awaken their creativity for the learning of the language, sacred stories, parables, liturgical action and silence of the Christian tradition. This is the most appropriate kind of language to cope with the existential limits to our being and knowing. The objective of Godly Play is to nourish the spiritual and moral development of children and approach spiritual formation as playful orthodoxy. The tradition of orthodoxy, when combined with the creativity of play, allows for the integration of what are often thought of as opposites and make room for God to become manifest in the community of children. The vision of Godly Play is to create a positive, long-term approach to religion in the world by teaching the Christian religion to children in a way that deeply centers them and keeps them open to others and the future in creative ways.

Volunteer Opportunities:
Individuals are always welcome to help underwrite new Godly Play kits and curriculum materials.

DAUGHTERS OF THE KING

The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. We have made a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as Lord of our lives. We are an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches. The vision statement for the DOK is as follows: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as Daughters of the King is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God's love throughout the world. The St. Mary’s-Blair chapter is the "Heirs of Grace." 

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

The community outreach ministry is one of great importance. We have structured a team to go out into the community and server in various areas. If you have something to offer we would love to use the gifts that God has given you. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to St. Mary's.
