EASTER SERVICE AT SHRINE MONT
We had a wonderful Easter service at Shrine Mont. Thank you to Carolyn Wilson and Shrine Mont for the beautiful flower arrangements and to Shelia Helsley, Jonathan Nateghi-Asli, Chip Belyea and Rod Shepherd for sharing photos with us. Some are included below and more can be found on our Facebook page.
DIOCESAN-WIDE MORNING PRAYER SERVICE THIS SUNDAY
Bishop Goff is preaching and the service features readings and music from Executive Board leadership and congregations across the Diocese. The service premieres on YouTube and Facebook at 8 a.m. Sunday. You’ll find the links on our Facebook page at 7:30 a.m. and they’re on our website now. The bulletin is available on the Diocese website. Once the service airs, you can watch it any time using these links. Mother Kathy is taking Sunday off so please join the Diocesan service as there won’t be a Beckford parish Zoom or Facebook Live service.
UPDATING PRAYER LIST
Please take a moment to review the prayer list to see if there are any names you’ve added that can now be removed. You can email the names to Melissa. Some names have been on for a year and it is getting rather long, so we want to be sure it is correct.
EASTER COLORING BOOKLET
If you’d like more copies or to share the Easter coloring booklet from the Easter bags, there is a PDF on our website. We’d love to see your creativity, so once you’re done coloring, email pics of your favorite page(s) to Melissa to share in upcoming issues of The Beckford Connection and/or on Facebook.
The reader schedule for April through June is available on our website and below.
Thank you for sending in your pledges! Without your support we wouldn’t be able to serve one another and the community or keep the churches operational.
You can mail current or past month’s pledges directly to the church offices.
