Message from the Rector
Hope you all are doing well!  We are very excited about the completion of our new east parking lot-it looks great-as does the recovering of the west lot.  The sanctuary renovations are nearing completion, and we should resume holding worship services there sometime in August.  As soon as we know the exact date we will let you know.  In the meantime we will continue to hold all services in the parish hall.  Thanks for your prayers and patience-the project is coming along really well-it will be well worth the wait.  Take care and I'll see you soon!
Lunch Bunch Needs Volunteers
Expanding this Fall
We are expanding our lunch bunch ministry. Lunch Bunch is a great ministry that feeds children in our community every 1st and 3rd Saturday. This fall we would like to expand the ministry to every Saturday. This means we need volunteers! We will have six teams available and you may sign up for a team and volunteer one Saturday every six weeks. Please see Philip Ryan, Pepi Nelson, or Sandy Sandbach for questions or to sign up. 
ECF - Episcopal College Fellowship
ECF - The semester starts 8/14 and we are excited to have back our college students. We are looking for volunteers to bring food for our Thursday night dinners. If you would like to bless the college ministry with food, please. See Philip after the 10AM service. 
Outreach / College
Thursday, August 10, 2017
On August 10th we will help over 2500 students move into on campus housing at VSU. We are looking for 8-10 volunteers to help move students in. Every volunteer will get one of our new ECF t-shirts.
