This Christmas the church has been gifted by an anonymous donor who has agreed to fund the project of making our church internet accessible. Many, many thanks generous donor! This should, among other things, make our facility more capable of serving other groups and functions during the week.
Have you ever wanted to try Yoga? Or wanted to start taking classes again? On Thursday, November 19th Lynn Weedmark will continue her YogAlign class at the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection. This class will take place every Thursday from 5:30-6:30pm and best of all it is FREE. All fitness levels and ages are welcome!
As you may recall, in 2014 the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection was honored at the Diocesan Convention with receiving the John Shepherd Award. Our Garden Master, Tim Lape was assigned the task of deciding how that grant would be used. Tim and his crew of hard working gardeners decided to use some of the grant to lay water pipes to all the trees in the orchard, run additional water lines in the trenches alongside the driving path, and to spray our apples trees to prevent codling moths. Tim says the grant money which remains has been set aside to build handicap accessible boxes next season.

In an effort to be more efficient, the Altar Guild will start arranging the flower bouquets behind the altar. Sign-ups for altar flowers will still be handled by Carmen Jackson, while a crew of eight women have volunteered to obtain the flowers and create the arrangements. The estimated costs of these arrangements will be about forty dollars for two arrangements or twenty dollars for one arrangement. In addition, you can sign up to have altar candles burning in memory of a loved one, a birthday, or an anniversary, at ten dollars.
We will not have flowers on the altar during Advent, as only greens will be used as part of the “greening of the church”. Poinsettias will, of course, be used for Christmas. Candles… Continue reading
