  • The Rite I early service will also move to the Canadian Chapel on January 18th.
Please Note:

A Freeze Night this Saturday, Jan. 10th seems highly likely. Please be alert for a special notice if that occurs. We will need: some delicious food for our guests and at least four good men to spend the night. In the past, those who have given this service, have found it to be very spiritually rewarding.

Storytelling Night is Back
Granville and Reba Ott and the Central TX Storytelliers
invite everyone to their storytelling session this Friday evening at 7:00 pm in the Parish Hall. If you love a good story, you will thoroughly enjoy this evening, and you might even tell a story, yourself.

New Look for the Parish Hall Entrance
Landscaping along the walkway to the entrance to the Parish Hall has been completed. Designed and implemented by Bob Beyer, the plants, none of which are taller than 12" at present, should really take off by spring and will have a real visual impact by summer. Bricks from an old wall were reused for the bordering, and coordinates nicely with the building. Being extremely ecologically conscious, Bob always plans for water-sparing plantings. Thanks to  Bob for these beautiful additions to our campus.
