This past summer in June, an Invite, Welcome, Connect, Exploratory Study Club was formed. During the four weeks, the group explored Invite Welcome Connect, a ministry of transformation that equips and empowers individuals and congregations to cultivate intentional practices of evangelism, hospitality, and belonging.

In the effort for St. Bede's to be more intentional about its evangelism, hospitality, and belonging ministries, the IWC group's first major goal was to create nametags for the congregation. Last Sunday, the St. Bede's Nametag Board was launched.

Nametags are vital for a congregation with a growth mindset and a spirit of welcome. Also, with the soon-to-be-named rector's arrival, the nametags will help the new rector build those initial relationships.

If you do not have a name tag, please speak to Susan Holder or Rev. Ryan. After each Sunday, place your name tag into the marked basket in Luther Hall or return it to the board.

Bottom line: Please wear your nametag every Sunday during the service and coffee hour.

Grass Roots.jpg

Grass Roots Neighbors is a volunteer community organization. They meet the immediate needs of our neighbors experiencing food and housing insecurity. GRN mobilizes to fill the gaps in existing services by providing assistance with love and respect. The organization's vision is to be a community effectively involved in ending poverty. ​

Among their outreach programs, GNR cooks and delivers a hot meal every Sunday to various encampments on the Westside. Once a month, St. Bede's with Holy Nativity assists GNR with preparing and providing meals. There are now four different volunteer time slots:

  • 2 - 4 PM (mostly chopping of fruits and veggies)
  • 4 - 6 PM (mainly packaging food)
  • 6 - 8:30 PM (loading and distributing the food)
  • 7:30 - 10:30 PM (distributing food in Venice by bike)

GNR utilizes the kitchen facilities at Holy Nativity Episcopal Church.

GNR, Holy Nativity, and St. Bede's have created a Google Sign-Up Form to assist with monthly volunteer coordination. Please click the button below to access the volunteer sign-up form.

Arizona church’s exhibit spotlights solutions to housing crisis

[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Flagstaff, Arizona, is not only a spiritual home for its congregation – it’s also a place where the wider community can come to learn about some of the most pressing issues of the day through its exhibition series. The latest topic in the series is one that is tearing at the social fabric of America, from big cities to small towns: the affordable housing crisis.

The exhibit, titled “On the Verge – The Flagstaff Housing Crisis,” opened on Jan. 13 as the latest in the church’s “Open Doors: Art in Action” project. The series highlights how national and global issues impact the city of about 78,000, through presentations and artwork displayed in the church’s community meeting room. They also involve a reception one night for each of the three months they run, with speakers breaking down different subsets of the main theme.

Though most of the exhibits have featured art as a primary medium for engaging with the topic, “On the Verge” is “more informational than artistic,” said Dan Dooley, Art in Action co-chair. Running through March 31, it includes presentations on how local agencies are addressing the problem, as well as photos and displays that tell the personal stories of locals affected by it.

Indigenous Episcopalians share stories of pain, healing, faith with presiding officers at Winter Talk

[Episcopal News Service – Green Bay, Wisconsin] The Oneida have called the Green Bay area home for 200 years since the tribe was forced to relocate from its ancestral homeland in central New York under pressure from expansionist European-American settlers and business interests. Many of the Oneida who first arrived here in the 1800s brought not only their families, traditions and culture but also the Episcopal faith.

While putting down new roots here, the Oneida established the first permanent Episcopal worshipping community in what today is the state of Wisconsin. The historic Church of the Holy Apostles located on the Oneida Reservation is often referred to as “the grandmother church” of the state’s three Episcopal dioceses.

“Holy Apostles has always been a center of our lives,” Jenny Webster, a tribal council member, said on Jan. 21 as she and other Oneida Episcopalians hosted a small, weekend gathering of Indigenous ministry leaders at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, an Oneida-run facility adjacent to the Oneida Casino.

Los Angeles bishop asks for prayers and action after Lunar New Year mass shooting

[Episcopal News Service] The Diocese of Los Angeles is inviting prayers and support for the people of Monterey Park, California, where 10 people were killed in a shooting on Jan. 21 during celebrations for the Lunar New Year holiday.

The shooting took place in a dance studio following a festival in the predominantly Asian American city just east of Los Angeles happened just down the street from St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church, a parish that holds services in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

“Pray for the dead and their families and friends,” Bishop John Harvey Taylor wrote in a Facebook post shortly after the shooting. “Pray for those who have been hurt and those who care for them.”

Taylor also spoke out against the lack of gun control in the United States, which enables a level of violence rarely seen elsewhere in the world, including – but not limited to – mass shootings. In 2020, 19,384 Americans were murdered using guns, the highest number on record.
