The Safety and Emergency Planning Team  has been busy over the last two years developing a parish emergency plan that includes guidelines for dealing with emergencies that can happen in and around our parish.

These are important programs that are not to be missed!!

FROM FR. DAVID +
 
Many thanks for the cards, calls, texts, e-mails and hugs as Debbie and I dealt with family issues the last few weeks. It was very wonderful for me to spend time together with my brother Bill In Flint, Michigan.  Bill is 11 years older than me and lost his wife to cancer two weeks ago.

While I was in Flint, Deb happened to be in Grand Rapids, Michigan attending an organ convention.  She learned while there that her mother had fallen and shattered her hip.  Her proximity allowed her to get to her mom in just 2 hours.   There are reasons for things and God had his hand in having us both in Michigan during these events.   We will return the last week of July to bury my brother's wife Sharon on 7/26. 

I am so grateful for being able to get away to be with family at these times.  Your prayers and best wishes have helped us immensely.  I am glad to be back for some normality.  

Thank you for your hospitality and welcoming of Mother Vicki Davis last Sunday when she served in my absence!

NEW PRAYER BOOKS AND BIBLES 
Halfway there!  Donations still needed

BCP Holy Bible
New prayer books and bibles are needed for our sanctuary and programs. Our goal is to buy 40 new bibles in a translation that is consistent to our tradition (NRSV with Apocrypha) and 20 new Books of Common Prayer to replace worn books and to have books in reserve for teaching and programs so we won't have to take books from the pews. The c ost per book is $18 for the BCP and $15 for each bible. Donations will be recognized with a bookplate sticker in the front of each book.  
CURSILLO WEEKEND SEPTEMBER 20 - 22
A Spiritual Retreat for all Lay and Clergy
Episcopal Cursillo Ministry
  • It's an opportunity to grow in faith and in spirituality
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the teachings of Jesus and how we can serve Him
  • Experience living and sharing with others in a loving and caring Christian community and realizing that this can be extended into our own environment
  • A continuing community that gives support and encouragement to help Christians carry out their Baptismal Vows
The Episcopal Cursillo Weekend includes a time to experience living in a supportive Christian community that  includes fifteen talks, five meditations and a Eucharist every day.  Cursillo Weekend is not a retreat. It is an opportunity to meet clergy and laity seeking to strengthen our faith. It provides an environment to experience the reality of the gift of God's love through shared prayer, individual meditation, worship, study, fellowship, laughter, tears, and unconditional love. 

Please contact Fr. David if you have questions or would like to participate.
