Welcome Fr. Jeff and Christina!

We are thrilled to welcome our new rector Fr. Jeff and his bride Christina. They will be joining us for good this Sunday September 4th. Let's all come and give them a big St. Auggie's welcome!

We're All Part of God's Big Story

Fall is almost here and our children are starting a new unit in God’s Big Story. Using the Old Testament, we will trace God’s big story through creation, the first sin, Moses, the judges and kings, and finally to King David. Interactive story time, play and crafts will help our little ones to understand that the Lord holds all of history in His hands and that each one of them are included in God’s Big Story of salvation. Come join us for fun and adventure. Be a part of God’s big plan for God’s smallest disciples.

But Jesus called them to him, saying, 

“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.

Luke 18:16

Sweet, Sweet Christian Fellowship

After worship refreshments are an important part of the church experience: mind, body and soul. They provide an opportunity for us to get to know one another better and to welcome visitors into our St. Augustine's family. Please plan on sticking around for Coffee Hour and email or text Ann if you can bring something to share. 

(Please remember to keep all food and drinks in the Fellowship Hall.)

Something Old, Something New

This past Sunday Deacon Tucker prepared his sermon using the First Book of Homilies. Huh? What's that? We know that the Bible has 1st Samuel, 1st Kings, etc., but "1st Homilies?"

Lee Gatis, editor of the First Book of Homilies in Modern English, writes, "How do we know what the Church of England believes? One crucial way is to look at the teaching contained in its foundational documents. These include the Thirty-Nine Articles, the Book of Common Prayer and the Ordinal. But less well-known than these are the two books of Homilies – published sermons for clergy to preach to their congregations in the early years of the English Reformation. The Homilies were designed to introduce the biblically-starved people of the sixteenth century to doctrinally-healthy teaching in their own language."  Read More It's worth checking out!
