Spiritual Growth This Week
Digital Lenten
Family Retreat

Looking for a way to continue learning about our relationship with Indigenous Nations after our outdoor Lenten Family Journey & Hike? Join us on Sunday nights from 5-5:30PM to discover more about indigenous spiritual practices. There is an optional short prayer service based on materials developed by indigenous Episcopalians afterwards.

Our retreat leader will be Mother LaClaire Atkins, who is an ordained Episcopal priest and member of the Eastern-band Cherokee.
Palm Sunday Is Outside Next Week
Starting Palm Sunday, we plan on having our 9AM child-friendly service back up and running in-person on a weekly basis through the rest of the school year (fingers crossed). Thank you for your patience! Palm Sunday will be outside (weather permitting). If you're not comfortable returning to in-person worship just yet, that's okay! You can drive thru that morning to pick up your blessed Palm Branches, along with a craft idea. While there won't be a Godly Play Story Time during Holy Week, the stories will be available on the website/YouTube channel. More details TBA next week.

Easter Egg-Stravaganza
Instead of an Easter Egg Hunt this year, we'll be doing an Easter Egg-stravaganza! Masked, socially distanced, family pod by family pod. After a short outdoor worship service, families will go through a number of stations where they will receive clues. At the end of the route, there will be the famous "egg machine" and treat bags! Registration page will be in next week's newsletter! Please reach out to Rev. Dan+ if you have any questions in the meantime.

Our Diocese Made The Local News!
One of our outreach partners, St. Luke's Germantown, hosted a diocesan vaccine clinic for all clergy and essential church staff last Saturday, March 13th. Thank you to St. Luke's and DioPA for offering this opportunity. This brings us one step closer to getting back to some sense of normalcy at church!
