Family Promise is a faith based community response to the issue of homeless families and children, sometimes know as the “invisible homeless”. When St. Michael’s hosts a family, members of the congregation volunteer to assist with the cooking of meals and providing fellowship among other duties.

KAIROS PRISON MINISTRY
Kairos is a lay-led Christian ministry that conducts a highly structured program designed for use in male and female correctional institutions. The mission of Kairos is to bring Christ’s unconditional love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families, and those who work with them. Volunteers are needed at every level from being a team member and actually going to the prison, to being a prayer partner, or support volunteer in baking cookies.
Chair: David Smith.
The Men’s Club is dedicated to promoting fellowship among the men of the Church and its community. St. Michael’s Men’s Club meets on the last Tuesday of every month at 6:00pm for a steak dinner and libations, usually followed by a guest speaker. The Men’s club assists other ministries with various functions and helps maintain St. Michael’s facilities and grounds. All men 21 and older are welcome to attend whether they are church member or not.

The Samaritan Center is a Christian organization offering emergency assistance with food for those in our community who are in need. St. Michael’s has been involved with the Samaritan Center since its inception in 1989. St. Michael’s has representation on the Board of Directors and volunteers who pick up the donated food from the Church and deliver it to the Samaritan Center.
Chair: Alfonso Martinez and Carol McCullough.
Since 1994, St. Michael’s Senior Ministry has been providing religious services at two Mandeville Nursing and Retirement Faculties. Members of this ministry preside at Morning Prayer services by reading scriptures and leading in easy sing-along hymns. This is a very rewarding ministry and much needed ministry for the elderly in our community.
Chair: Carmen Perkins.
The goal of the Sunshine Committee is to provide assistance to the members of St. Michael’s when there is a need such as an illness, injury, surgery, or death in the family. There are many ways in which to assist: from cooking a meal, visitation, or assisting in minor chores such as getting their trash to the street, picking up the mail, or changing a light bulb.
Chair: Carol McCullough.
