Daughters of the King
Daughters of the King is an international order made up of women between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are lay and ordained Christian women, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life and supported through the companionship of our sisters. In our Rule of Life, prayer always comes first. We pray daily for the unity of Christ's church, for the spread of Christ's Kingdom, especially among women and girls, for God's blessing upon the members of the Order, and for the spiritual growth of the parish and for the clergy of the parish to which the chapter owes allegiance. If you have any questions, please contact Sue Corbin, group leader.
St. Michael’s has a dedicated and enthusiastic group that builds fellowship through fund raising efforts. Money raised is given through Mercy and Social Justice grants to agencies that our members are connected with, which are doing the work of Christ in the World.
We like to hike in a wide variety of Northern California locales, to enjoy the natural beauty, the healthy exercise, fun, and fellowship with each other. We gather on early mornings in the church parking lot and carpool (with maps both to the trailhead, and for the trail itself---and because we're Episcopalians, we always make a coffee stop!). We range from experienced hikers to newcomers, physically fit, and less so. We are made up of destination-achieving athletes, and stop-and-smell-the-roses lingerers. ALL are welcome. If there is inclement weather at the hike location, please confirm with JC Fisher that the hike will move forward. With any questions, please contact JC Fisher.

St. Margaret's Guild
St. Margaret’s Guild is a women’s group at St. Michael’s that gathers for lunch on the 2nd Monday. Each time we meet, we collect $1.00 from each attendee for outreach. We have been known in the past to gather clothing for babies and toddlers to give to St. Matthew’s for distribution to needy families. We also regularly make contributions to food programs.
