The Fourth Sunday After Epiphany
January 28, 2018

"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

If we sell all the squares on both boards, you have a chance to win up to $125 after each quarter and up to $500 at the end of the game on each board - 2 chances to win after each quarter! But most importantly, our outreach will receive $3,250!
What if each family commits to selling at least 10 squares? Contact your family and friends. It is easy to do and fun to watch who wins! Reserve your squares today!

New Beginnings
Camp Mikell
February 2-4, 2018
New Beginnings is a unique weekend designed to address concerns and needs of youth in grades 6-8. Every October and February, no less than 100 youth and adults come together for this spiritual retreat. The weekend includes music, talks given by high school teams, small groups, skits, and plenty of fellowship. 

This is who the weekend is for! Participants are the youth and sponsors that attend the weekend. Participants are grades 6-8. Sponsors are also considered participants. Sponsors are the adult chaperones that attend the weekend. Participants of the weekend do not have to be Episcopalian, but they must come recommended through an Episcopal Church and have an adult sponsor who attends the weekend.

The New Beginnings Team is a group of high schoolers, young adults, and adults that work together to bring the love of Christ to all participants. You do not need to have participated in New Beginnings to be on team.

To register, follow this link:   New Beginnings Registration Form.  The cost is $100 for the weekend and the registration deadline is January 31, 2018.

Women's Bible Study
Thursday, February 1, 2018 / 6:00 p.m.
Women's Bible Study will resume on Thursday, February 1, 2018, at 6:00 p.m.  We will be starting a new study called "The Wisdom of God."  Please contact Denise Dorsey or Patty Kidd if you would like a copy of the book ordered.  The group meets the first and third Thursdays each month.  
The sign-up sheet to enter the Salsa and/or Chili Cookoff is in the narthex. Purchase as many Super Bowl squares as you want for $25 per square, located in the lobby before and after services.

People have been gathering in public spaces for ages, talking about life, philosophy, faith, doubt, and deep questions of meaning. Recently, many people are re-discovering the pub and tavern as a safe space to explore and express questions, learn from others, and engage with other traditions and perspective. Throughout time, profound insights have their origins paired with a pint. The pub is a space of freedom and a place to reflect on the technical layers of complexity in the drinks we imbibe and the philosophy and theology in which we share. 

Join us the second Tuesday of the month and bring your questions, curiosity, and readiness to engage and wrestle as we pursue the Divine in the seemingly least likely of places. 

Please contact the church office to reserve your spot or sign up here.
