St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church
Archbishop Desmomd Tutu and the Dalai Lama are a great example to us of how to be friends and to take care of each other. Their "Book of Joy" , Viking Press, 2016, is well worth the read.
Like outreach, fellowship - the Body of Christ gathered to share and care - is rooted in worship. Worship teaches us who we are and whose we are; We belong to God and to each other. Jesus called his disciples "friends" and he includes us in that circle of love and grace. Being together and discovering the vulnerability and true humility necessary to take care of each other benefits us, and also is a powerful witness to the world.
As the name implies, Coffee Hour is a time to socialize and connect with fellow parishioners after the church service. It's been a tradition in the Episcopal church since time immemorial. We add lemonade in the summer and all kinds of goodies year-round, depending on the season. It's one of the many opportunities to practice friendship.

A team composed of a dedicated group of laypersons with varied life experiences and skills, who work behind the scenes to provide support and guidance to individuals and families in crisis...whether the crisis is grief related, economic, a health issue, a family crisis etc. The Pastoral Care Team works day in and day out to review existing pastoral concerns and to identify and assess new opportunities for ministry. The team works under the leadership of the Pastoral Care Missioner (our Deacon Sally Bosler), and is assisted as needed by trained professionals from the wider community. All work is conducted in such a way as to preserve the confidentiality of the persons served. The team includes Lay Eucharistic Visitors who are authorized to share Reserved Sacrament from the weekly Holy Eucharist with shut-ins and those in the hospital or nursing homes.
