Rector's Forum Update

The Rector's Forum will take a break in June, to return  July 8 . All are encouraged to join Fr. Dick in exploring our other  Sunday  offerings in June.  Explore the Bible in community in the Scripture Class, pop into the Art Room, or see if Malachi's needs a hand receiving deliveries.  And, of course, you can always grab a cup of coffee and make new friends in the Parlor.

Name Tags

Wearing your name tag each Sunday is a form of hospitality. Please wear your name tag each Sunday. If you do not have a name tag, please sign your name on the Name Tag sign-up sheet located on the information table in the narthex. 

Fun at Malachi's Storehouse

The children loved making cereal necklaces and enjoyed ice cream sundaes!


EfM Graduates Honored

Congratulations to Dana Dolan and Don Reddicks for completing the 4-year EfM course of study!

Following Christ as we welcome, nurture, love and feed all God's children.
Our Chicken soup ministry is delicious, home cooked and then frozen, a gift from our St Pat's family that's always ready when needed.  (A quart of soup and two casseroles for 2 people).
  • If you believe a beloved has need for one of these gift boxes, for ANY reason, please go right ahead and ask them. If you receive a 'Yes" and can take the box next time you visit, please help yourself to one.
  • The boxes (as shown) are stored in the kitchen freezer inside a larger grey box marked Chicken Soup. Please be safe, it can be slippery in there. Once delivered please bring the larger container back and return to the grey box for reuse.
  • Contact Brenda Marquis, if you need help coordinating delivery. Thank-you to our wonderful delivery volunteers.
  • Brenda will monitor the uptake of the boxes and together with Alison Forbes, organize replenishment when needed.
Perhaps you have experienced the power of this beautiful ministry when you were sick? Let's share this gift freely and often.


Personal Care Items Needed

Sundays in June and July we are once again receiving donations of personal care items for our Malachi community.

During the  Sunday service as you come to receive communion, offer a gift of:

Soap,  Shampoo,  Conditioner,  Deodorant ,  Toothpaste ,  Toothbrush,  Lotion, and  Nail clippers

Deacon Postulant Victoria Jarvis has offered a beautiful service of foot and hand massage on Wednesdays. This service opened a window into how needed and appreciated personal care is. Bring your hotel soaps from your travels, buy an extra shampoo when you buy your family shampoo or have Amazon deliver it in bulk.   

Thanks always for being so giving and generous!

St. Patrick's Discovery Weekend is August 24-26, 2018. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend. You will not want to miss this!
