Church Renovation Update
From Junior Warden - Allan Dear
The Sanctuary Renovation continues; to date the pews have been relocated, old layers of flooring have been removed and commercial paint work has been completed.  The new wood-like flooring and carpet will are in progress.  Finally the pews, and worship furniture will be replaced and a final cleaning done.  I anticipate a return to the newly renovated sanctuary by Sunday, July 23rd.  Thank you all for your gracious patience and understanding.
Stitchers of Love
Sunday, July 16, 2017 beginning at 4:00 p.m.
Stitchers of Love will take a short break due to Father's Day, and the weekend before the 4th of July.  We will take up our group needles again on Sunday, July 16, 2017 in the Parish Hall from 4-6 p.m.  Bring your projects and a friend.  You do not need to know how to knit or crochet, we have plenty of teachers.
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. 
Episcopal College Fellowship
Do you have a heart for hospitality? Do you enjoy cooking? Would you like to help serve our college students? The fall semester is almost here and we are looking for volunteers to prepare meals for our Thursday family dinners. Also, we are looking for a family to open there home once a month for lunch on Sunday's after Sunday School. If you want to sign up, please see Philip Ryan during coffee hour.
