Last Epiphany Book Club:

The Little Prince Concludes

Join us for our last book club meeting: Sunday, February 11 from 12-1pm. We're reading The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This beloved story explores so many important themes, like the dangers of narrow-mindedness, and the wisdom of children. Email Mother Mary Lynn with questions.

Ash Wednesday & Valentine's Day

On Wednesday, February 14 at 12pm, we'll have a service on the PB boardwalk at the end of Thomas Avenue on Ocean Front Walk, followed by Ashes to Go (distributing ashes to passersby). Then, at 4:30pm, at the church, we'll have an all-ages service followed by sharing our spiritual autobiographies. We'll conclude the events at 7pm.

Spiritual Autobiographies

On four Wednesdays in Lent, beginning February 21, we'll practice deep listening to one another's spiritual autobiographies. What events shaped your faith? Who are the people who nurtured your spirituality Come explore your own spiritual autobiography and hear the journeys of others. Learn more about spiritual autobiography.

All Ages Lenten Service

We'll have an accessible service for people of all ages on Sunday, February 18, the first Sunday of Lent. Lent is a six-week season of preparation before Easter. Traditionally Christians spent this time fasting, praying and giving alms. It is an opportunity to begin a spiritual practice you've been wanting to try, or to deepen one you already do. In any case, we hope you'll join us for worship during Lent.

EDSD Flood Relief Fund

In the wake of the recent devastating floods that have impacted our communities, the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego is stepping forward to offer support and aid to those in crisis. We are establishing the EDSD Flood Relief Fund, a dedicated resource for providing immediate assistance to those affected by the floods. This fund embodies our commitment to being a compassionate and responsive presence in times of need. We invite you to share this with your congregations and all who feel called to help. Let’s work together to bring relief, hope, and healing to our neighbors and communities during this challenging time. Give Today.

Annual Report

If you missed our annual meeting last Sunday, you can still get a flavor for all the wonderful things happening in this congregation by downloading and reading our Annual Report.

We Believe Confirmation Journey

Registration is open for this year’s diocesan hybrid confirmation program, We Believe! February 14 - April 14. $30. Scholarships available. We use the book My Faith, My Life by Jenifer Gamber. It allows participants to take the next step in their faith journey with friends from all over the diocese.

Women's Bible Study: Weds at 9:30

The Rebel Women Bible Study is reading The Meaning of Mary Magdalene, and all women are invited to join! This has been a great place to explore our questions about the Bible - who decided what counted as biblical text? Why do we always hear certain stories in church instead of others? Was Mary Magdalene really the fallen women she's been portrayed to be? We meet Wednesdays from 9:30-10:30am at the church. Email Mary Lynn to join.
