Greetings!

The Young Adult Group start-up is Thursday, May 24th.

Here are the details from Liz and Harry Ealey, who are sponsoring this group beginning at St. Augustine's:

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.

To start us off, I (Liz) will be leading a small group study on the book Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren with Harry leading us in different types of prayer following the discussion. According to the Church calendar, May 21 st begins the season described as Ordinary Time. It’s a long season without church festivals, lasting until the start of Advent. While it might seem dull, the reality is that our lives, much like the Church calendar, are largely comprised of the ordinary. We go to work, we do dishes, we meet with friends, we brush our teeth, and on Monday morning we wake up and start it all again. In this season of Ordinary Time, we want to focus on how God is at work in our ordinary lives, dull bits included. Liturgy of the Ordinary teaches us how the sacred and the ordinary work together. It’s an easy read, but at the same time is theologically and practically deep.

I (Liz) found this book to be extremely helpful in seeking contentment in daily life and in applying faith to more than Sunday mornings. Mother Tish teaches an understanding of the sacred in ordinary life by connecting daily life moments to specific sections of the liturgy in an Anglican service, which as a bonus also helped me to understand the meaning of the liturgy in an Anglican service. This book will be helpful whether you’re a new Christian, a mature Christian wanting to go deeper, or a new Anglican.

If you’re interested in the small group or young adult fellowship events,  email Liz  to receive further communication:   If you’re confident you want to be a part of this young adult group, then we would also like to invite you to come to our home for coffee and tea on May 24 th   at 7:30pm to discuss the group and get to know each other. Topics for the night include deciding a day of the week and location for small group, fellowship event ideas, organization of leadership, and more.

We look forward to getting to know you better!

God bless,
Harrison and Liz Ealey
St. Augustine's Men's Choir
This is an invitation to the men of Saint Augustine’s to be a part of an all-male chorus. 

We would like to sing as a part of worship on Sunday, June 3rd. The chorus is fairly simple but requires that we rehearse together at least once. 

We will meet Wednesday evening, May 21st, at 6:30 at the chapel and (possibly) Saturday, March 26th at 1:00. I will have music for you at rehearsal.

Please call Val Bowser with questions or to let me know of your plan to join us.

BUNCO NIGHT to SUPPORT RENT 4 RECOVERY
Sam Buehler has sent out an appeal for mission support through a BUNCO NIGHT or donation. Here is the information:
Ohioans are painfully familiar with the toils of addiction. Amidst the Opiate Crisis we are flooded with headlines. News articles and media. Our home state holds the second highest overdose rate per capita and numbers continue to rise. Treatment centers are overwhelmed, jails are full, and hospitals are flooded with people trapped in the cycle of addiction. The Opiate Epidemic is unprejudiced; it affects loved ones of every walk of life but you can make a difference. Thank you in advance for your support, we can’t wait to see you for the Bunco tournament!... more
WANT TO MAKE GIFTS FOR TEEN MOMS?
Young Lives is a ministry to teenage mothers and their children. Each summer Young Life has a special camp week exclusively for teen moms and their babies. Young moms are given the opportunity to be a kid again, enjoying a resort-like camp experience without neglecting their duties as a mother. During camp, the young mothers get a break from the struggles of their daily lives. Teen moms get the chance to relax, take part in fun activities and learn about God and His plan for their lives. It’s a week filled with fun, adventure and the message of Christ’s unconditional love.
As Young Lives mentors and committee members, we try to make the week special in large and small ways. One taskis to prepare gift bags with personal items and toiletries for each girl to use during camp.  Would you be interested in helping with the purchase and/or preparation of these bags?
Let's chat at church or contact me by  clicking here

Thank you!

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.
