Greetings to all!
FAMILY FUN NIGHTS continue TONIGHT, Wednesday, July 20. We’ll gather on the North Lawn at 6:30pm for a Prayer Walk around the neighborhood. Upon our return to church, we’ll enjoy cool treats on the lawn! Dress accordingly and bring your own water bottle. Mask optional outdoors, though still asking folks to mask indoors.
Here's what we'll be up to for our remaining gatherings:
Wednesday, August 10, 6:30-8:00pm: CHANGE IN PLANS – As Fr. Christopher will be on vacation, we’re switching up our plans a little bit to still provide an opportunity for Wednesday night worship. We will have interactive prayer stations in the church for folks of varying ages to engage with, and we will end our evening together with Compline from the Book of Common Prayer. As a precaution, we are asking participants to mask for this service, as we will include music with our Compline service.
Wednesday, August 24 (times/details to be announced): Parish Potluck & Blessing of the Backpacks – Keep an eye out for sign-ups and more information!
MISSION TRIP PRAYER REQUEST: Abby Wolf, a member of the All Saints Youth Group, is in Salyersville, Kentucky this week with a crew from around the diocese, sponsored by St. Thomas, Menasha. The crew is partnering with Appalachia Service Project to do house repair projects at local homes. Please continue to keep their team in your prayers. Thank you!
