Looking ahead to Christmas! Yes, it's that time of year. Christmas Pageant and Eucharist December 23, 2018. Calling all actors: We need people to play the roles of Simeon and Anna in our pageant.

We will listen to the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe together, a Christian classic that never grows old! If you have never heard or read it, you won't want to miss it. If you have heard it before, you know that you are in for a treat. This time together be relaxing and peaceful, listening to the story, with discussion to follow.

Unfinished Projects (Previously Prayer Shawl)

For several years we have met on the 3rd Friday of the month to knit prayer shawls. We now have lots of shawls and so we are changing our name and emphasis. We will now be called "UNFINISHED". As Amy said at our last meeting, we are all unfinished projects. God has not finished with us, he is still shaping us.
Our first meeting will be September 21st, and we will meet once a month during the year. This group is for everyone in the parish, not just women, so please feel free to attend. Watch your activity calendar for meeting dates. We will meet from 1:30 p.m. to approximately 3:00 p.m., and would love to have people come and join us. Most of us have projects we have started and just need to have an opportunity to get together to work with others and we might get our projects finished. If you have a prayer shawl that is not finished , just bring it along too. We do have lots of shawls, but we certainly will accept the ones that come our way.
This is a going to be a purely social group. For years we have had people come from both the 8:30 a.m. and the 10:30 a.m. services, and we have just enjoyed the social aspect of the group. It is wonderful to have an interaction between people who attend each of the services. It is a laid back social contact within the parish, just a time to enjoy each others company.
If you would like more information please feel free to contact Betty Mitchell.
