In-Church Ministries

Acolytes

The adults and children who serve in this ministry area have the responsibility for leading the beginning of the worship service and for assisting the priest in presenting the Gospel to the people and in preparing the communion. Their devoted service truly enhances our worship.

Altar Guild

This quiet behind-the-scenes ministry provides a lovely setting in which to worship and glorify God. From the beautiful altar and lectern hangings to the wafers and wine for communion the congregation's worship is enhanced by the efforts of St. Mary's Altar Guild.

Greeters

A warm greeting makes visitors and members coming to worship feel welcomed and appreciated. The greeters on duty welcome those who come into the church and help them feel comfortable in signing our guest book and in asking for information.

Hospitality

This ministry enables us to grow closer in our relationships with God and each other, to grow spiritually and to use our facilties in a manner that pleases God. We support each other and our church by joining together in the preparation and coordination of scheduled events.

Lay Readers

Lectors aid in the empowerment of the congregation by the Holy Spirit by reading the Word of God, leading prayers and by the ministration of the Holy Eucharist (Communion). Through study they can proclaim the Scripture lessons in a true and meaningful way. Through daily prayer they intercede for grace and for the needs of the church and the world. Through reverent reception and administration of the sacraments they, with the congregation, remember Christ's great love and sacrifice for us.

Music

Our music ministry exists to glorify God – Father, Son, & Holy Spirit - by leading people in musical worship of Him. We seek to be a church where all styles of music come together to praise Him. Musical groups at Holy Trinity include the Saints of Joy Choir, Praise Band, and Hand Bell Choir. All groups utilize a wide range of musical genres to grow musically and spiritually. All groups also enhance the worship experience as well as lead the congregation on Sundays and at other services during the year. Anyone is invited and encouraged to join the music ministry. The only requirement for membership is faithful attendance at rehearsals.
Saints of Joy Choir meets every Wednesday evening from 6-7pm.
The Hand Bell Choir meets immediately after choir from 7pm-7:30pm .
Please contact our Music Minister,  Braeden Kershner, with any questions! (843) 860-7158

Pastoral Care

Caring for the needs of our members, especially the sick and shut-in, is important to keep them connected to the church in times of illness or sorrow. Supporting our Christian family in times of trial makes the whole church stronger. This group visits regularly and takes communion to those who are unable to attend worship services.

Prayer Teams

Prayer is an important part of a Christian life. On occasion all of us need extra prayer support. To assist our congregation, we have two prayer teams who, after communion, can pray individually with those who desire special prayers.

Ushers

Ushers serve God in the worship service by greeting people coming into the church, handing out bulletins and assisting them to find seats if necessary. They participate in the service by collecting the offering and guiding the congregation to the altar rail for communion. Their goal is to make each person feel welcomed, comfortable and appreciated while in our church.

Red Wagon Food Collection

The Fill-the-Wagon food collection ministry begun this year benefits Tricounty Family Ministries and the West Ashley High School Food Bank.
A red wagonis placed in the back of the church for donations of nonperishable foods each Sunday. Every month has a different theme for types of food to donate. During the service the wagon is brought up as part of our offering for a blessing. At the end of the month the food is donated to the chosen charities. .
