In the monthly vestry meeting, Fr. Gatwood shared that he and Deanna will begin a new evangelistic and disciple-making work in the southern half of Franklin County. At this time the space between Anglican ministries in this part of the state is St. Augustine’s in Westerville and Grace Church in Circleville--nearly an hour’s distance apart. To begin, Fr. Terry will be forming a small core group to read, pray, and serve together as an extension of St. Augustine’s ministries south of I-70, tilling the soil for what may perhaps be the fulfillment of part of the founding vision of the parish to be a missional planting congregation. Please pray for the work of this formation.
Dora and I invite everyone who is a mother, or who has a mother (that's EVERYBODY!), to join us in celebrating all the wonderful women in our lives. We’ll be bringing an assortment of tea-time treats, lemonade, and iced tea to coffee hour after service. Fancy hat and dress not required - but encouraged! We look forward to treating you!---Wendy W.
Sunday, we   welcomed   Harry and Liz Ealey  to our parish family. Yay! The Ealeys come to us from Pittsburgh (don’t hold that against them) and already have become  active participants  in our parish. Take a minute and  drop them a line , and welcome them to St. Augustine’s.

Writer Wednesday: Margaret: 8 People Around a Gas Stove Doing Kingdom Work
Margaret is a native of the United Kingdom. She and Ken have been married nearly 54 years and have 3 daughters (including twins) and 12 grandchildren. She lives in Grandview Heights and has been coming to St. Auggie's nearly 2 years.

It was a dark and cold November night in 1974. The place was a large metropolitan area in the middle of England. Ken and I had recently returned from living in the U.S.A. for 6 years. We had settled into our new home and found a church but it didn’t seem like the right church and we were praying about it. On that particular night I had been invited to visit a church. I was not too impressed by the shabby Community Centre where they met. Nor was I impressed by the 8 people in attendance. As it was such a cold night and we were so few in number they had decided to hold the evening service in the kitchen, where we sat around the gas stove with the oven lit to keep warm! But could I deny the presence of the Holy Spirit? Absolutely not!... more
Our names are Harrison (Harry) and Liz Ealey. We just moved here from Pittsburgh and in getting to know the people of this church we have sensed a need for structured young adult community and thus, after speaking with Father Kevin, have decided to organize St. Augustine’s young adult ministry.

Our main vision for the young adult group is to organize fellowship events as well as develop a small group where young adults meet for study, discussion, and prayer. We are defining young adults as people in their 20s and 30s, regardless of life stage (student, married, single, etc). We plan to kick the small group and fellowship events off this summer, starting the first week of June... more
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.
