FIRST SUNDAY ACTIVITIES AND BREAKFAST Pancake Breakfast
Breakfast between Services this Sunday

Along with a time to celebrate and remember birthdays and anniversaries, the first Sunday also  allows us to focus on fellowship with a breakfast meal. As usual, we will have a free breakfast this Sunday between services beginning at 9:15 am.   Many thanks to the "Order of the  Pancake" who come early and prepare a wonderful breakfast. Thank you to Luke Pearce and his  teams who take such good care of us on these days!

A reminder to please wear your name  badges, so guests who may come can get acquainted with us easier as we show our hospitality  in our varied and wonderful ways.

This is also the Sunday when the Blessing Bags get made to  both serve the Community Services League and the Blue Springs Police Dept, as well as for us to  take to give to the homeless who we may encounter on our daily travels.

Gabriella, our youth  coordinator, will also provide activities for the children during this time.   Come be part of the  fun!

FINDING FAITH THROUGH FICTION BOOK CLUB A Morbid Taste of Bones
This Monday, August 7 at 7 pm

The Finding Faith Through Fiction Book Club will not meet in July.  The next meeting will be at the church on Monday, August 7 at 7 pm to discuss the novel A Morbid taste for Bones by Ellis Peters.

A Welsh Benedictine monk living at Shrewsbury Abbey in western England, Brother Cadfael spends much of his time tending the herbs and vegetables in the garden-but now there's a more pressing matter. Cadfael is to serve as translator for a group of monks heading to the town of Gwytherin in Wales. The team's goal is to collect the holy remains of Saint Winifred, which Prior Robert hopes will boost the abbey's reputation, as well as his own. But when the monks arrive in Gwytherin, the town is divided over the request.

INQUIRERS CLASS SET FOR FALL    Welcome to the Episcopal Church
Please see Fr. David if interested      
 
Several comments from the recent survey suggested presentations on topics both theological  and traditional in regards to understanding the Episcopal faith. To address those suggestions  and to provide a study program on preparing folks for the sacrament of confirmation and
reception, an Inquirers Class is scheduled starting on Wednesday evening, September 16  from  6:30 pm to 8:00 pm for six weeks, ending on October 17.

This class is for all who are interested in  learning and re-learning the story of the Episcopal Church, the Anglican tradition and why we do  the things we do as Christians in this unique faith tradition. There will be a sign up sheet in the  narthex soon for all interested in participating.
