Join Us For After Service Coffee Hour!
After you have introduced yourself or if you are yet to introduce yourself, please don’t hesitate to join us for After Service Coffee Hour.
The best way to get to know people at St. Elizabeth’s Church is to participate in one of our many ministries or mission works.

What does it mean to join St. Elizabeth’s Church?
At St. Elizabeth’s Church, we believe the real ministry of the church happens by its lay members. We ask our members to pray, attend worship services regularly, give, and stay open to doing the work of ministry. That work may happen within St. Elizabeth’s Church’s walls: teaching Sunday School, singing in the choir or helping in our community. That work may also happen in your everyday life as you minister to your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
If you would like to join the Episcopal Church, baptism is the first step. The Episcopal Church accepts the baptism of other denominations. If you have not been baptized and would like to do so in order to become a member of the Christian family, please contact the Rector or the administrative assistant at the church office.
Confirmation is the sacrament in which a baptized teen or adult makes a commitment to follow Christ. If you have been baptized as a child, but would like to be confirmed as an adult in the Episcopal Church, please contact the Rector or the administrative assistant at the church office.
