Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Rowan Williams, Preaches this Sunday
On Sunday, May 17, our preacher is Lord Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury (you may remember that he presided at the marriages of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles and later at the marriage of William and Kate). He is one of the great Christian figures of our generation. A widely published author and preacher, Lord Williams, who is fluent in eleven languages, is known for his depth and obvious holiness. This is a sermon not to be missed!
Collecting the Sacrament of Holy Communion During the Pandemic
Beginning this Sunday, May 17, parishioners may collect Holy Communion for at-home distribution from the Main Campus porte cochére by prior arrangement. The bread for this purpose will be consecrated at the Sunday morning services and should be administered that afternoon. A special form of prayer for this purpose will be included in each packet. Taking Communion to those prevented from attending worship has been a tradition since the earliest days of the Church, so we are glad to be able to reinstate this practice temporarily during this pandemic.
  1. Register before 12 noon on Friday. Late registrations cannot be accommodated.
  2. Registrants will receive an email on Saturday regarding the specific pick-up time.
  3. The pick-up window will be from 2 to 3 pm on Sunday at the Welcome Center porte cochére at the Main Campus with specific pick-up times assigned alphabetically.

WEEKDAY MORNING PRAYER

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
This week, we learn about the New Covenant, according to the BCP's catechism. The best way to understand the New Covenant is to compare it with how the Catechism explains the Old Covenant--God's relationship with the Hebrew people as it is described in the Old Testament. But what makes the New Covenant "new"? How does it help us understand who Jesus is and what he has done for us according to Scripture?

The Impact of Your Generosity
We are family, and feeling connected when we are apart is difficult but not impossible. Some 75 parishioners have volunteered their time and resources to reach out to all 5,000 church members to check in, offer assistance, and take prayer requests.


Thank you for your generosity to one another. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Church of the Incarnation prohibits licensed carriers from carrying firearms on its premises. Although the Texas Legislature recently struck a provision in the law that stated handguns are not allowed in a place of worship, the legislature still allows the church to prohibit licensed carriers from bringing firearms into churches if oral or written notice of that prohibition is provided as it is here. If you customarily carry a gun, please leave it locked in your car before entering the church or Incarnation Academy. Thank you.
