Arts at St. Bart's - Mask Project
Due Sunday, August 9
Theme: Wearing a Mask is Way to Show Our Love for Others
Jesus tells us to “Love others as well as you love yourself.” What better way to demonstrate how much we love others during this pandemic than by wearing a face mask? Let’s encourage each other and those around us with these two Arts at St. Bart's ministry projects. Choose to create a poster or make a mask - or complete both! When finished, t ake a picture of your poster and/or of yourself wearing the face mask and send to arts@stbartschurch.org by August 9 . Detailed instructions for the poster and mask can be found on the Arts at St. Bart's webpage . Children and teens are encouraged to participate also
Livestream Operators Needed
Calling all 'techies’! We are looking for people with moderate computer competence to help run the Sunday 9 a.m. livestream service on a periodic basis. This takes place on-campus (once we are allowed back) in the Chapel with safety protocols. We provide training and support. Adults and youth are most welcome to volunteer! Please contact John-Luke Addison if you would like to learn more about this ministry.
First Day of Preschool is October 5
St. Bart’s Preschool is planning to start the school year on Monday, October 5. The preschool is following state and local government as well as CDC guidelines to ensure a safe start for school. We would love for your child to join us! Please contact Sheila Martin , Interim Director, to learn more or visit our website.
Curious About Cursillo!
Listen to our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s personal testimonial. This is Cursillo awareness month and we are excited to share an inspiring personal message from our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry in support of the Cursillo Ministry. The Episcopal Cursillo Ministry is a Christian faith renewal movement that begins with a three-day weekend experience. This leads to ongoing support and encouragement in a small group faith community where we build friendship and validation as we are challenged to live every day for Christ through piety, study and action. Our fall weekend is scheduled for October. While we await confirmation due to COVID, please contact Jill Henderson , 760-807-8445, or Don Spencer for more information on how Cursillo might enhance your spiritual journey! 
Forward Day By Day - Pick Up
You may pick up a copy of Forward Day By Day in the lower parking lot near the staircase leading up to the church. As of today we have not received the large print version. Please drive up to the staircase and look for the table under the canopy.

ADULT FORMATION
Book Study: Just Mercy
Thursday July 30-August 20, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. 
Author Bryan Stevenson, a Harvard trained attorney, tells the story of his career representing those who had been wrongly accused, wrongly convicted, and wrongly sent to death row. "... I knew [my life] would have something to do with the lives of the poor, America's history of racial inequality, and with the struggle to be equitable and fair with one another." He tells of his journey with Walter McMillian, a Black man on death row, and weaves in the stories of many others whom he championed over time. It is a story of revelations, anger, injustices, and ultimately justice and redemption. 
 
Earlier this year, the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church met in Montgomery, Alabama. During their meetings, they made a pilgrimage to the Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice. They were also privileged to spend nearly an hour with Mr. Stevenson. Your facilitators are Polly Getz from St. Bart’s and Butch Glosson, a member of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Hemet, both members of the Executive Council. Join them for a fascinating and perhaps difficult discussion of this powerful book.  Please register with Beth Dean to receive the Zoom link .
The Holy Spirit Bible Study
Wednesday, Through August 26, 10:30 a.m., Zoom
What do you know about the Holy Spirit ? The Holy Spirit is mentioned a lot more than we realize in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Still, most of us know very little about the Holy Spirit. The class includes a 30-minute video and discussion before and after the video (similar to how we conducted previous classes on campus, except you have to supply your own treats). Please contact Bob Capettini for an invitation to the Zoom meeting.
