Living To Serve Him

There’s more to discipleship than just Sunday. Through a range of ministry opportunities, our parishioners have found callings beyond traditional worship.


Among the ministry opportunities at Vernon is the Senior’s Ministry. Young at Heart, this group is dedicated to sharing God’s love through love, compassion, fellowship and prayer. This group meets the 1st Wednesday of each month for food and fellowship. Sign up on the Senior’s board to bring a dish to pass.

Vernon also offers a Senior’s Study Group, which meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 10:30 am from September through May. A light lunch of soup, bread and dessert is served at 12 pm Sign up on the Senior’s board to bring a dish to pass.

Vernon is always looking for volunteers to help with special events, working the coffee station, helping in the kitchen, and more. For more information about how you can serve, please contact the church.

Our Caring Hearts and Hands Prayer Shawl Ministry has provided comfort to those along their journey toward God. For centuries, prayer shawls have been symbolic of an unconditionally loving God as they wrap people in comfort and love. Our members have created dozens of prayer shawls, and still keep their hands busy knitting and crocheting to continue to provide comfort to others.

Education is one of the best ways we’ve found to bring our parishioners closer to God. Through our Parish Education Committee, we offer a range of educational programs including His Kidz Sunday School, High School Life, and much more. For more information about educational opportunities at the church, visit our Youth page or contact Education Team at [email protected]
