Greetings!

I cannot thank you enough for the past four years. I have been so blessed to be a part of this family and grow so much alongside the beautiful community that is this church. Throughout my four years at Otterbein, I have had a lot of challenges, but one thing has always remained, and that is the calm, peacefulness of St. Augustine's. The love that this congregation shares for each other's members is unparalleled, and the amazing care, genuine care is something I cannot find anywhere else. So, thank you so much for the past four years of amazing fellowship- God bless.

FAITH MISSION COMING UP SATURDAY: HELP STILL NEEDED
NEEDED: A Butcher, a Baker, a Candlestick Maker for Saturday!!!

Really, St Ann still needs a baker for desserts for the men and women of Faith Mission for Saturday's lunch AND one server.

If you can be Christ's hands on Saturday, please call Ann and let her know. God bless you!

WRITER WEDNESDAY: The Personal Power of Liturgy
Elizabeth (Liz) is new to Columbus and St. Augustine’s but will soon be a confirmed Anglican and member of the church. She enjoys writing, hiking, walking her dog, and playing board games with her husband.

As a born and raised non-denominational Christian, I still find it odd that I have embraced a way of Christianity that uses a liturgical style of worship and a book of pre-written prayers for contemplation and worship. How did this happen? How did I move from a form of worship that included a rock band to a structured, almost Catholic form of worship some see as old-fashioned?

A couple years ago I faced a few of the most challenging situations a person can deal with in this life and for a number of reasons related to that I began questioning my faith. Did Jesus actually rise from the dead? Even if it is true, why would I want to follow this God who could He let horribl. Anne things happen in my life and in the world? If He is a father, is He loving or abusive?... more

SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM
We are growing in all sorts of ways at St. Augustine's. From the recent survey of the parishioners, we learned that almost half of those completing the form found our church through the internet. God has graced us with several in the parish with media/marketing gifts, and we will be using those to get the word out about St. Augustine's. Wade and Sara S. presented fresh marketing ideas to the vestry last Sunday. Mary Megan and Deanna have joined the Communications Team to accelerate our use of Facebook and the website. Also, Mary Megan is going to create an Instagram account for us. We have a  Twitter account,  open for use! 

If you have ideas about improving the effectiveness of our on-line presence, let us know. And...if you are interested in contributing on the Communications Team, let me know. And...if you have not checked out our FB page,  click here  and LIKE US! We are striving to reach 350 likes by the end of the year.
