Story of our Crosses Sunday

Please bring crosses to be blessed this Sunday, August 20th.

During sermon time everyone will be invited, but not required, to tell their story about their favorite crosses. For example I plan on bringing my Seminary Cross.

This is part of our 200 Diocesan event. Hopefully, we will have 200 crosses to bless, so bring as many as you want. They will be blessed during the service and we will take pictures following the service for the upcoming Diocesan Convention. Don't worry, your crosses are not to be given away. They will be blessed and you can take them home. Thanks so much.

Rev. Kay

Wedding Celebrations

This Sunday, July 3rd Buck and Nellie will be celebrating their 70th anniversary a bit early. Actually, their anniversary is in the Fall. However, their family has vacation now and will be in town to celebrate. There will be a short "renewal of wedding vows" during the 10am service. Their son, Jim Harrison (a priest) will be the guest celebrant and officiant of their vows. Kay will be the preacher. Please bring a celebration card.

On Sunday July 10th we will be having a SURPRISE Wedding Shower for Kevin Jacque during coffee hour. Tracy Gibbs hopes to decorate by using framed wedding pictures of many of us, so bring your wedding picture this Sunday or next. We will not be providing a parish present, so cards with or without money are appropriate. Also, Kevin will be playing a short recital after our 10am service.

Also, remember this Sunday is a Pot Luck.
