THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

What does the Book of Common Prayer say about the mission of the church?  The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. page 855
 
Curates Corner

Starting on Sunday June 30th after our 9:30am service we are starting Learning on the Lanai.  It is an opportunity to take a few minutes to go over various topics of interest. For example scripture, Book of Common Prayer and theological questions. I will be talking more about this learning opportunity this Sunday. 

Blessings,

Fr. Chris

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen .

 
 

Holy Nativity would be happy to accommodate you if you would like to prepay your pledge for a few weeks before you get away for the summer.  
 
Interim Rectors Forum
Fr. George Clifford will be hosting a question and answer forum in the meeting room between our 7:30am and 9:30am services on June 23, 2019. The forum will begin at 8:30am and end at 9:20am

It has been such a happy enhancement to our 9:30 worship service to have our new choir director, Chris Susuki, and our choir itself participating in the service since Easter.  Holy Nativity is eager to receive "budget-relieving" gifts to support our music program.  Please consider making one!

 Exploring our church's mission
Our mission calls us to glorify and enjoy God's love, celebrate Christian life as expressed in the Episcopal/Anglican tradition, provide for education, encourage spiritual growth and share God's bounty through outreach.
How do we glorify and enjoy God's love? We schedule, publicize and conduct regular worship; we worship in the Episcopal/Anglican tradition; and reach out to include others through intentional hospitality.
How do we celebrate Christian life as expressed in the Episcopal/Anglican tradition? We respect the Anglican interplay among Scripture, tradition and reason. We are committed to open, honest, transparent and timely communication. We live out the reality of our Baptismal Covenant. We take a comprehensive approach to the use of our time, talent and treasure in support of our common life, as well as the local and global community.
How do we provide for education? We provide youth and adult Christian Education. We have a Sunday School program, hear sermons during worship and host and support Holy Nativity School.
How do we encourage spiritual growth? Both clergy and lay members offer pastoral care to people in need or trouble. We have a regular pattern of worship which is thoughtfully planned and executed.
How do we share God's bounty through outreach? We have a thriving thrift shop and participate in Diocesan outreach efforts. Our primary other outreach activities address homelessness, the elderly and relief for those in crisis.
Did you "read, mark, learn and inwardly digest" the church mission statement recently? Did you think of many of the implications we have listed here? What else did you think about?
