Would you like to host a coffee hour, but aren’t sure how complicated it is? Good news…..It’s simple! Coffee Hour hosts have a variety of options. 1. Bring in some (peanut free) goodies and leave them in the fridge for others to use for coffee hour. 2. Bring in goodies and help make coffee and setup and cleanup. You don’t even have to sign up just bring a little something (nut free) any Sunday and it doesn’t have to be big or fancy. The most important thing is to have goodies to feed those hungry Episcopalians after worship. So what are you waiting for “Feed an Episcopalian”
Our little project of used books for sale – bookshelves on wheels with a coffee can to collect the donations -has again turned those used books into gold. This past week we mailed a cashier’s check for $900.00 to Saint Matthew’s Anglican school in the little village of Pomona, Belize. Our parish has been involved in the Books for Belize project for eleven years, and we have sent a grand total of $10,819 to Anglican schools in Belize. This is a combination of money from Sunday sales, the church garage sale, a grant from our diocese, and individual contributions. The school will use it for basic needs for teaching their students and for their feeding program for 40 of their neediest students. Thank you for… Continue reading
The time to sign up for garden boxes it here again. For anyone who had a box last year, you are entitled to keep the same box you had last season. The cost is $35 per box. Limit is 2 per family. Make checks payable to Resurrection Community Garden. See Tim Lape for more information.
During Lent, we will have two classes for Parishioners to choose from. Beginning on Wednesday March 8th, and lasting 5 weeks, we will gather in the Parish Hall at 1:00pm for an hour of prayer, Bible study, and faith sharing. This group is open to all. The book we will use for this class will be The Passionate Jesus: What We Can Learn From Jesus about Love, Fear, Grief, Joy, and Living Authentically, by the Rev. Peter Wallace ($19)
The second group will also begin on Wednesday, March 8th, but will be held at 7:00pm for an hour. Our evening class will reconnect the Women’s Radical Healing Group that met together last year (and any other women). The book we will use for the second… Continue reading
The women who worked on the Sunday Market last fall have voted to allocate their $2100. $300 will be used to seal the cracks in the parking lot pavement, $1800 to begin the fund to paint the exterior of the church building. In addition, possibly some money for the AED fund drive.
The rationale was much the same as most families use to set up their personal household budgets – pay for maintenance before you buy something from a “wish list”.
Just a reminder, in order to keep costs down the Daughters of the King need the flower vases to be returned to the church once the flowers have passed on.
Thank you so much to everyone who came to the AED training on Sunday. It is exciting to know so many people are now trained at our church. A special thank you again to Carol Allen and Linda Bordwell (and all who donated to the cost) for helping to bring this life saving device to Resurrection!!
