Men’s Group (MAG or Men’s Action Guild)
We embrace Children and Family ministries for elementary aged children and teens.
We begin with Christian values, bible history and the beliefs that we are all formed within the context of family.
Christian Youth & Children Formation
Our nursery workers care for these young people
with skill and care. Each worker is certified in CPR and has taken a class in Safeguarding God’s Children.
Adult Christian Formation
We provide multiple levels of care:
Medical supply loan closet Hospital / nursing home visits by clergy Home visits to the shut-in Home Communion for those unable to attend church
Stephen Ministries offering compassionate listening to those in need
Women’s Group (Episcopal Church Women)
A solid foundation of faith is the key to success in every life. This is equally true when it comes to faithfulness in Christian life and practice. A mature Christian possesses a good working understanding of the bible and Christian theology and has incorporated that understanding into his or her life. In a rapidly shifting culture, this is more important than ever.
Our adult education offerings are:
Wed@6pm (Oct-May) featuring prayer, shared meal and learning.
Tuesday 9:30 am Bible Study
Weekly Community Building Groups scheduled at different times off campus.
Nursery (Newly Born to Kindergarden)
We honor the decision that you and your family have made to journey here together and seek to help transform your family into active discipleship in Jesus Christ.
ECW meetings are typically on Monday mornings Oct-May, during season. Among their activities are a church-wide raffle, sale of holiday items, and sale of cheese balls. The proceeds from their fundraising goes to Bishop’s fund, support for our seminarian, Boy Scouts, and other ministries of the parish.
The mission of Youth of Saint Hilary’s ministry (YOSH) is to teach middle and high school students to embrace Christ while transforming their culture. Though our YOSH programs we are dedicated to challenging the rising generation to engage God's redemptive mission in the world by prayer, service, study and wholesome fun. This integration of body, mind and spirit helps them grow more like Christ who is the perfect image of God and in whom we realize our true identity. Students become empowered to go out into the culture through our summer mission trips to transform the world as agents of God's redemptive mission.
YOSH (Youth of Saint Hilary’s 6-12th grade)
We acknowledge that children are just beginning to walk with God, so we seek to nurture your child’s relationship with God through prayer, multimedia and targeted bible studies that introduce the life, love and example of Jesus your precious children. The children join the worship service at the Offertory, often sharing a bit of their learning with our priest.
Children’s Church (1st-5th grade
Christians in the 21st century are called to be “light, leaven and salt” in their local communities, therefore we offer caring service to others both in gratitude for, and in witness to, God's generous love. At Saint Hilary’s we understand that offering caring service in the community is one of our primary missions. This is reflected in hands on opportunities for ministry and in our budget.
MAG Meetings are typically on Tuesdays Oct-May, during season. MAG annually hosts our famous shrimp boil, help out with other parish activities. MAG supports the ECHO organization in Fort Myers and donates all of their monies to ministries of Saint Hilary’s.
