  • Coffee Hour happens every Sunday following the 10:15 am service in the Undercroft (downstairs) or outside the church (in the summer). Please join us!
  • Foyer Groups consist of people from St. Michael’s who are placed in a group of 8 and agree to have dinner with one another once a month over four months. It is a great way to develop relationships with people in our community! If you are interested, please contact Lori Palmer at Lo_Palm@hotmail.com
  • The 20/30s group is for folks in their 20s and 30s. The group gets together for both social outings and short-term book studies. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Paul Moberly at paul.b.moberly@gmail.com
  • New Attenders Gatherings take place in the spring and fall for those who are new to St. Michael’s. These gatherings are put on by St. Michael’s Welcome Ministry. Please contact Sarah Benton at sarah.benton@comcast.net if you are interested in helping or attending.
  • Exploring the Episcopal Church is a class offered once or twice a year by the Rector. This class is great for people who are new to the Episcopal Church, or new to Christianity in general. Please contact Mary Lindquist if you are interested at mary@stmichaels-vt.org.
  • Education for Ministry (EfM) offers an opportunity to discover how to respond to the call to Christian service. Sessions meet weekly during the academic year. While the full program is a 4-year one, a person registers one year at a time. The first year of study is the Old Testament or Hebrew scriptures, the second is the New Testament, the third year is early church history, and the fourth year explores 20th- and 21st-century church happenings. Each class seminar focuses on some relevant issue from our culture, our personal lives, or scripture through a process called theological reflection. In the process of our meetings, we ask the “So what?” question:  what difference does our faith make as we engage in the world? If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Joel Hill at  jhill@jhsph.edu or at the church office (254-6048).
  • Episcopal Church Women (ECW) invites all women of the parish to participate. ECW supports local and global outreach missions as well as needs of the parish. ECW also supplies hospitality through receptions given after funerals and other parish occasions. And it helps to keep the parish connected with members who are housebound or in nursing homes by calling on them and bringing small gifts several times a year.
  • Seasonal book studies and other small-group opportunities are offered at different times of the year. Please look at our Upcoming Events link to see our latest activities.
