Annual Meeting Jan 29 2023
All Are Welcome
St. Giles’ has a strong tradition of welcoming and openness. We hope to make comfortable all people who visit, try us out, or come earnestly looking for a new church home, regardless of their religious background, social situation, or political-philosophical orientation. We feel there’s a warm place for anyone at St. Giles’ and we want you to feel that way too.
Within the Episcopal branch of the Anglican Church—any baptized person and anyone who desires a closer relationship with Jesus Christ is welcomed at the Lord’s Supper. Please feel free to receive Communion with us whenever you, your family, spouse, children, or friends are here.
Our Mission: Family & Service
St. Giles’ Episcopal Church is a Christ- centered community with vibrant worship, reaching out with love and active support to each other and to the wider community.”
Children of all ages are welcomed at St. Giles. We worship and play in the nursery, church school room, and library in addition to our worship with caregivers and friends in the church. If you would like your child to have child care, please ask our greeters when you come in! We’d love to help.
Jefferson Area Food Pantry
St. Giles’ is a sponsor and food distribution site for the Jefferson Area Community Food Pantry.
The Pantry is open on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
The Food Pantry is seeking donations of personal toiletries — soap, lotions, shampoos, conditioners — and diapers. Please contact Allison Brooks at 207-315-1134 to arrange for a drop-off of these items. If you know a family in need who lacks transportation to get to the Food Pantry, please reach out to us. We’d love to help to solve this problem!
Read the latest notes from St. Giles vestry
The vestry was happy to welcome Rev. Dana back from her vacation! The meeting opened with the reading of our newly created Vestry Covenant and I think that strengthened the bond we share. Rev. Dana and Charles had worked on a Wolf Fund Grant Application in August which would pay for books to use in a study group during our vestry meetings this fall. We received the grant, and Charles secured copies of a book ‘How to Lead When You Don’t Know Where You Are Going” by Susan Beaumont . Thank you Charles and Rev. Dana.
