Confirmation Class Begins August 30

shield 01Confirmation will be held October 4th this year. Confirmation is the sacrament in which an adult or teen affirms the promises made for him/her at his/her baptism. If you were confirmed in another tradition, the service of Confirmation is also when you can be officially received into the Episcopal Church. And if you have already been confirmed, but would like to re-affirm your vows, you can do so, too. Confirmation class will begin August 30th. We are currently discerning what time of day might be best for our class. If you have any input in this, please be in contact with the Rev. Sarah.

Summer Reading

practiceBrother Lawrence writes: “There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God.” Check out the observations and inspirations to be found in his writings, collected in The Practice of the Presence of God and The Spiritual Maxims. Three copies are available to read and return on the table at the rear of the church.

Outreach Back to School Project

backpacks 12Back to school! It seems early, but our outreach ministry is starting to organize a School Supply Shopping day for our pantry families. Last year, families came on an August Saturday and students chose the supplies they needed at no cost. It was a great success and much appreciated. Cass Morris is leading this effort and is looking for volunteers to help gather the supplies to fill the shop, organize the purchased supplies and work at the market on Saturday, August 8th. If you can help for an afternoon or an hour this summer, contact Cass.
