Sunday, March 20, we are welcoming the Bishop Search Committee so we are having one service between the churches. It is at 10 a.m. at St. Andrew’s and streams on Facebook Live for those unable to come.
CRISIS IN URKRAINE
The Episcopal Relief & Development has set up a fund to help with the ongoing crisis in Ukraine by providing humanitarian assistance to those fleeing the violence. To find out more and donate, visit their website. If you prefer, you can make a donation through the church and we’ll make sure they get it.
GAP EASTER BASKETS
We are looking for donations of baskets, candy and basket fillers for the GAP kids. Please drop everything off to either church by Thurs., April 7, (in the St. Andrew’s Room at St. Andrew’s and in the downstairs parlor at Emmanuel). If you have questions, please speak with Mother Kathy.
MONDAY: BECKFORD PARISH LENT BOOK STUDYEvery Monday during Lent at 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (March 14, 21, 28; April 4, 11) we’re meeting via Zoom for a study of the book Reclaiming Rural: Building Thriving Rural Congregations by Allen T. Stanton. The book describes how by establishing a rural identity, leaders build a meaningful and vital ministry. As rural America continues to undergo massive economic and demographic shifts, rural churches are uniquely positioned to provide community leadership.
If you have missed previous sessions but would still like to join, you are welcome. Mother Kathy has a few books available. Please speak with her if you’d like to join or have any questions.
TUESDAY COMMUNITY LENTEN SERVICES
The Woodstock Ministerium is holding their annual Community Lenten Services again this year. They’ll be every Tuesday at 12 p.m. at WUMC. Mother Kathy leads the March 29 service. There is no luncheon.
SHRINE MONT SUMMER CAMPS
Camps for children ages 8 and up at Shrine Mont for summer 2022 are open for registration. If you know of a child who would benefit from these camps, we encourage you to explore the options. From art to sports to exploring the great outdoors, this year’s camps will include both new activities as well as beloved camp programs and traditions. And with two sessions of Family Camp, there’s something for everyone. Spots are filling up fast, but there are still a few openings left! Visit www.shrinemontcamps.net for dates, rates, and programs. Scholarships are available so please do not let cost be a deciding factor. Please speak with Mother Kathy if you have questions.
BIBLE STUDY WEDNESDAY
The Bible study group with the Episcopal churches in our region is from 7 to 8 p.m. online via Zoom every Wednesday. You’re welcome to attend even if you haven’t before or if you miss a few weeks. You can jump in any session without a problem. If you have any questions, please let Mother Kathy know.
The directory is available on our website. To access the file, you’ll need a password so please email Melissa for it. (You don’t have to sign up for a DropBox account to access the file. If a window pops up asking if you want to sign up for one, you can close that out to continue to the file.)
