Worship Ministries

Music

The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7 - 8:30 PM, and on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15 AM before the 10:30 AM worship service. The choir sings at most 10:30 AM Sunday services from September through Pentecost (late May or early June), as well as occasional special services such as Evensong, Advent Lessons and Carols, Easter Vigil, and other seasonal services. 


New Children's Choral groups, The Manatawny Boy Choristers and The Manatawny Girls Choristers, were formed in November and rehearsals began in December. While the Choristers will perform at worship services on occasion, the groups are open to the community and the children will receive excellent FREE vocal and music instruction from our experienced organist/choirmaster, Mr. Charles Glandorf. The groups are currently rehearsing Thursday (early evening) and Sunday (early afternoon). Please click here for more information on the groups and Mr. Glandorf, including contact info.

Altar Guild Ministry

A group of men and women who are called to serve God by preparing and tending the places where our family worships Him. Our work is a thank offering of time and many talents, a ministry of love undertaken in the name of Christ.  Our ministry partners with the priest to make the worship life of our parish run smoothly. What our Ministry does is often unnoticed because average worshipers do not ordinarily think about the usual furnishings of the altar and sanctuary.  We work in teams of two for a month each season of the church year. There is an Altar Guild Manual which lists how to do each of the services for the entire year. New members are trained by those of us who have been serving. We would love to have you join us in this important ministry.
