Parish Email for Friday, 16 June 2023

The Saturday evening service schedule has changed for June and July.  1st Saturdays will offer Holy Eucharist and the 2nd-4th/5th Saturdays will host evening prayer with lay leaders presiding and preaching.

The 10:30 Sunday services will be meeting in the Nave starting this Sunday 18, June.

Kitchen of Hope has begun collecting for Tools for Schools.  Donations of all types of school supplies are welcome!  Anticipated distribution will be at the August KoH giveaway.

Monday, June 19th marks the second anniversary of Juneteenth as a federal holiday. While its recognition is significant, the day presents an opportunity to continue to dismantle racism and white supremacy in the United States and around the world.  As followers of Jesus, we see this work as essential so that we may come closer to a Becoming Beloved Community. Please see this list of just some of the ways you can advocate through The Episcopal Church’s Racial Reconciliation Ministry.

Vacation Bible School will be held 9-13 July in the Parish Hall.  See Barbara K. to get your little ones enrolled!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help with Kitchen of Hope!  The next giveaway is 8 July.
