St. Pat’s Community

Fellowship Offerings

 

Men’s Group

The Men’s Group meets regularly for fellowship.  All men eighteen and older are welcome to participate in the various activities of this group throughout the year. Activities are posted on the bulletin board and publicized in the monthly newsletter and weekly Sunday bulletin.
 
The Men’s Group sponsors the Annual Chili Cookoff and Silent Auction in January and the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper each February to provide money for summer camp scholarships for all St. Patrick’s camp participants, as well as an annual retreat generally held in the spring or summer.

Women’s Group

The Women’s Group is open to all women of the parish 18 years and older. The mission of this group is for the women of Saint Patrick’s to get to know each other better, in the spirit of Christ, through friendship, laughter, service and knowledge.
 
Currently, the group meets for a variety of activities which are announced through church publications and emails. This group also sponsors an annual retreat which provides a time for rest, relaxation and reflection.

Silver Foxes

The Silver Foxes provides social and spiritual activities specifically for older members of the parish and the community at large.  The “membership” requirement for the group is eligibility for retirement benefits or anyone 60+ years of age. These very special, long-time parishioners are the heart and soul of our church and, as such, are entitled to some special care!
We try to enjoy an activity once a month, which might include going out to lunch at a local restaurant, playing cards or bunko at the church, touring the flower gardens in the spring, viewing Christmas lights, or taking in a local play or concert.  To make participation as easy as possible, we provide transportation for those who are unable or unwilling to drive at night or to unfamiliar locations.
 

For more information contact Nancy Strothmann at the church office or by email at nstrothmann@gmail.com.

Youth Opportunities

There are many opportunities for children and youth at St. Patrick’s.  Our program for our youngest children is called Before Youth Group (BYG).  Ages for this group are pre-K through 5th grade.  This group is designed to help foster friendships between church friends prior to becoming a part of the youth group of the parish.  Events are held at least quarterly that can be inclusive of the family or just for the children.

Episcoposse is our youth group, which meets weekly and includes youth in sixth through twelfth grades.  This group is structured to provide service, fun, devotion and discussion each month.  Currently the meeting time is 4:00-6:00 each Sunday evening.  There is an annual mission trip which provides a service opportunity.

Summer camp at St. Crispin’s is one of the great ways of experiencing God’s love in this world.  Camp runs from the beginning of June through the first week of August.  Children in third grade and up can attend a weekly session.  There is also an ABC Camp for those who are in first and second grades which offers an overnight opportunity accompanied by an adult to be exposed to what camp is like.  The Men’s Group provides a substantial scholarship to defray camp expenses each year.

The Amy Judin Best Scholarship is an opportunity for a graduating high school senior to obtain a $500 scholarship for college.  Eligible candidates shall have been active in the parish through participation in youth group, service as an acolyte, attendance at camp and other youth events, and regular attendance in worship services.

Tables of Grace

Tables of Grace is a small-group activity consisting of members of the parish who meet once a month on the third week of each month for a meal, prayer and fellowship.  The groups will meet for three months.  Members will rotate hosting the groups and provide the main dish.  Everyone else provides a dish to share.

For more information contact Nicholas Mitchell at nicholasbmitchell@gmail.com.

 

Family Fun Nights

Family Fun Nights are a time for families of the parish with children to get together for food, fun and fellowship.  We try to plan an event once a quarter that includes fun and activities for all ages.  Sometimes our events are held at St. Patrick’s and include dinner and games or crafts.  Sometimes we plan events outside of the church such as bowling or a picnic at a local park.

Committee Offerings

Fellowship Committee

The Fellowship Committee plans and presents various special events and activities throughout the year, including the Easter brunch, baptismal receptions, and Christmas Eve receptions.  This committee can always use an extra pair of hands!  If you enjoy preparing or planning enjoyable events with other enjoyable people, this is the place for you!  If you are interested in assisting with fellowship events, please contact Betsy Brown at betsystinebrown@msn.com or Shirley Kongs at shirleykongs@gmail.com.

Finance Committee

This committee is responsible for the financial matters of the church and makes recommendations to the Vestry for its consideration and approval. This committee also prepares the annual budget for presentation to the parish at the Annual Meeting.  The committee is headed by Co-Treasurers Lisa Strickland and Tammie Maloney.

Outreach Committee

We believe that we cannot merely focus our efforts on ourselves here at St. Patrick’s. This is why we devote much of our time and financial resources toward outreach in our community through entities that are supported and recommended by our parishioners. The Outreach Committee meets monthly to determine where these funds will be allocated and to consider requests.  Our Outreach Co-Chairs are Paula and Ivan Alvarez.
