Confirmation Class Begins Next Sunday, Sept 21st
Sunday, September 21st at 9 am

We are excited to begin confirmation preparation with a fantastic group of young people!  Confirmation Class will begin on Sunday, September 21st at 9 am, and will meet weekly in the lounge on the 2nd floor of the Parish Office building.  Your daughter or son is welcomed and encouraged to participate in this program, even if she or he is uncertain about confirmation at this time.  It's normal and healthy to struggle with belief, and we welcome doubters! For more information or to learn more about the class, please contact Mother Susan or Lynn Mitchell.


Men's Bible Study with Father Malloy
Wednesdays at 8:15 am in the Meeting Room
Common prayer is what binds Episcopalians together.  Our liturgy -- the texts and the actions in the Book of Common Prayer -- encapsulates what we believe about God, the created order, and humanity.  In particular, it encapsulates who we understand Jesus to be, the relationship with God that Baptism into his Body has given us, and the life to which it invites us.  Our common prayer is not the Book of Common Prayer.  The Prayer Book gives us the words and the actions we use in our common prayer, and that shared event is what holds us together.  Still, the Book and the actions cannot be separated.  We will spend four weeks looking at the process by which the first editions of the BCP emerged, the theological assumptions upon which it was built, and how the Church's theology and the Prayer Book have evolved (and continue to evolve) together.  Join Father Malloy on Wednesdays at 8:15 am in the Parish House Meeting Room.


Art Show Envelope Stuffing & Ladies' Luncheon
Friday, September 19th

We will be stuffing the Preview Party Invitations on Friday, September 19th in the Parish Hall beginning at 10:30 am.  Followed by the Ladies' Luncheon.  Many hands make light work, so please join us! All are welcome. Bring a sandwich and enjoy reconnecting after the summer; beverages and dessert will be provided. We hope to see you there.
