10AM WORSHIP IS MOVING! Beginning on Sunday, December 3rd, our 10am service will move to the Nave for the season of Advent, culminating with the Christmas Day services on December 25th. 

 

MEALS FOR WORCESTER FELLOWSHIP: On Sunday November 26, we will be making sandwiches for the homeless starting at 8 AM. The usual food will be prepared, and we need helpers to donate food and make sandwiches. Most importantly, volunteers are needed to drive the food to Worcester and join in at the Worcester Fellowship. 


First Communion Program: Is your child at that stage in life were they are always asking you if they can receive communion during worship? Are you as a Christian parent ready to help your child take the next step in their faith and enter into the sacred feast of the Lord? If so, then on December 10th and 17th from 9:15-9:45 in the Nave, Pastor Chad will teach about what we as Christians believe about Communion and on Christmas Eve at the 4 o'clock service we will celebrate those children receiving Communion for the first time.
This time of instruction is open to all families who are interested in having their children understand and participate in the sacrament of Communion. The Episcopal Church teaches that all baptized may take communion, no matter their age.  This class helps children understand the sacrament of communion and gives them an enjoyable hands-on experience that will enhance their participation.


Are you prepared for the Advent Journey? Beginning on November 29th and running through December 20th on Wednesday nights during Advent we will be gathering to celebrate Evening Prayer and embark on a holy journey to Bethlehem. We will be studying "The Journey" by Adam Hamilton This will be an excellent time for us to gather together and join Mary and Joseph on the road to Bethlehem to worship the newborn King and avoid the consumer trap that many people get caught up in this time of year.
