Ministries
and Outreach

The Altar Guild has the privilege of preparing the altar for  every service. Our members are assigned to teams. The teams rotate responsibilities following a monthly schedule. Each team has a designated captain who coordinates their monthly responsibilities. We welcome and are available to train new members at any time during the year.

St. James Mill Creek and its parishioners have played an active role in the ministry of Family Promise of Northern New Castle County since its launch in March 2010. Family Promise of Northern New Castle County is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization that prevents and ends homelessness for families by engaging faith-based congregations, volunteers, and donors.

This group of volunteers prepare and serve food at Immanuel Dining Room in Wilmington.

The prayer team meets after church once a month to pray for members of the congregation that have submitted prayers throughout the month.

A dedicated corps of volunteers includes those who serve as members of the Altar Guild and Flower Committee, lay readers, acolytes, ushers, and the choir. The Worship Life Ministry Team, which includes representatives of these ministries, met several times last year with Fr. Bimbi to plan out seasonal worship and to discuss any upcoming changes.
