 READING BIBLE FOR TRANSFORMATION – SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10,  9:15-10:15 AM  Join us Sunday mornings in September for a three-week class – Reading Scripture for Transformation.  We will explore various methods of reading Scripture, emphasizing a contemplative approach, but also looking at how to do that with discernment. God’s Word is a gift to us that we sometimes neglect to open, and we are invited to receive more than we often do as God offers Himself to us. Instruction offered by Kathy Ruud & Father Hines.


 ACW MEETING SCHEDULE:  In preparation for the Blessing of the Animals, the ACW has scheduled several meetings to plan the details of the event:       ACW Meeting -  September 9, 2017, 1:00 pm  &  ACW Meeting – September 30, 2017, 1:00 pm


 STUDY OF THE PARABLES OF JESUS – FIRST CLASS, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1:00 – 2:00 PM  A study of the parables of Jesus with guided commentary from Biblical expositor William Barclay’s work, Parables of Jesus. The class will begin on Thursday, September 7th, from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Ann Whitfield will lead this study.  The class will focus on studying four parables of Our Lord, one parable each week, if possible.

 WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?  INSTRUCTION ON THE FAITH – SUNDAYS IN OCTOBER, 9:25—10:15  This class by Fr. Hines offers instruction on the Faith in the Anglican tradition and is open to all parishioners, new members, and enquiring members.  More information to follow.

 LITTLE RED WAGON FOOD PANTRY  A heartfelt thank you to all our generous Parishioners who have participated in the Church Food Drive.  We have had a wonderful response.  Thank you so much.!  Please contact Fr. Hines if you know of someone in need.

 QUIET REVERANCE IN CHURCH BEFORE MASS  Please try to maintain quiet in the church before Mass.  The choir rehearses 9:25–10:15 am in church.  After that we ask for quiet for those who wish to pray and prepare themselves before Mass.  The Lord was not “in the wind”….neither “in the earthquake”…neither “in the fire”…but in “a still small voice.” (I Kings 19:11-12). May we hear His voice!
