Our Worship, Ministry, and Mission
Our Worship As Episcopalians we worship according to the services contained in The Book of Common Prayer. For us, our worship feeds our spirit and minds through prayer and sacrament in the context of a community of fellow worshipers. Our worship in word and song is what unites us to God through Jesus Christ and is the source of our living out of our faith in ministry and mission.
Our Ministry Ministry for us is the act of caring for our fellow members and others seeking to journey through life with Christ. Our ministry as Episcopalians is to support each other to better understand and live out our common allegiance to love God and our neighbor with all our heart, mind, and soul. We exercise this support by attending Church regularly so we might be renewed by our worship and ministry until we gather once again. Ministry is this ongoing cycle, allowing God to feed us that we might be prepared for our mission.
Our Mission Fed and supported by a community of love, Episcopalians live out our mission as we scatter from the Church into the community to witness Christ's love and calling. We do this through the myriad careers, occupations, activities, friendships, and service our members engage in their daily personal lives. As such, we talk not so much about what is our mission as a Church, but what is our mission as followers of God in Christ. We therefore have not one mission but many missions carried out by each of our members as a missionary of love and justice with our families, friends, colleagues, neighbors, whomever we encounter. As part of the Episcopal Church we also engage collectively in mission through our participation and pledge of time and money to the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, and through this to the national Episcopal Church, and through this to the worldwide Anglican Communion. Our mission therefore is both personal and collective, nearby and spreading throughout the world.
