We will hold our annual blessing of ministries this coming Sunday, September 9th in conjunction with our Fall Kickoff, where we will bless and pray for those of you who are involved in ministries here at St. Augustine’s . In addition, we will pray for a fresh infusion of the Holy Spirit to rejuvenate and strengthen us to be faithful witnesses of Christ and to do the work he calls us to do as his body at St. Augustine’s.  We will also resume Godly Play for children 2-10 years of age . If you are a ministry leader or involved in a ministry (reading, education, altar guild, etc.) please plan on attending this service so we can bless you!

As Father Gatwood has announced, the 9th will also be their last Sunday with us, along with the Hardins, as they will launch a new church plant on the west side of Columbus beginning the 16th. Accordingly, we will say our goodbyes to the Gatwoods and Hardins and send them off with our support and prayers. Saying goodbye properly is a critical component in transitioning relationships so please do come out and say your goodbyes to these faithful families who seek to do the Lord’s work. Father Gatwood will preach and preside at the eucharist that day.

Invite a friend or family member.
As you keep our young people in your prayers, consider participating in a new ministry we are going to begin this fall. It’s called Engage and you can read a quick description about it  here . Engage pairs adults with youth to read the Bible one on one, talk about it what you’ve read/what it means for you, and to pray together. This is a great chance to develop significant new relationships as you participate in an important new ministry for the life and health of our parish and to see first-hand the power of God’s word at work.
St. Augustine’s Anglican Church, Westerville is pleased to announce a new ministry for girls ages 5 through 18 and their families!  American Heritage Girls Troop 2808 is a newly chartered youth organization that welcomes new members and leaders.
Please join us for a Family Information Night on September 11, 2018 at 6:30PM in Ellsworth Chapel, 975 S. Sunbury Rd., Westerville, OH 43081. We’ll preview the AHG program, learn about its benefits to your daughters and family, and go over the registration process, and have time for questions and answers.
At St. Augustine’s Anglican Church, we believe we are changed by God, to make a difference for God. For more information about our charter organization, click here.

“…that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;…”  Colossians 1:10

Trail Life USA is a Christian outdoor adventure, character and leadership program for boys and young men and will serve as a ‘brother group’ for our new AHG Troop. We are looking for men (young and old!) who’re willing to step up and fill mentoring and leadership opportunities within our new Troop. There are multiple opportunities to be a part of this exciting new youth ministry program at St. Augustine’s!

Because this program is boy-led, and boy-focused, we need you gents to pitch in to make it a success!    We are in immediate need of someone who wishes to take the role of Troop Chaplain, and serve as an assistant Troopmaster, helping Fr. Terry Gatwood, Benjamin Winkler and the rest of the board.

Please take a moment to read more about Trail Life on their website:

If you are interested in helping in any role with our Trail Life or American Heritage Girls programs, please email  Wendy Winkler  as she will serve as the St. Augustine’s contact for both organizations.
