It’s All About the Noise: 
On April 19 2020 at 7:00pm, come out for “The Hope of Easter: It’s All About the Noise,” a talk with Rev. Mark Curtis.

Sanctuary Team
: We invite the double digit group to consider getting involved in the Sanctuary Team. The youth Crucifer would process down at the beginning of the service, then go down to join the double digit group. While the youth Crucifer is down with the double digit group, there would be a senior Crucifer. The youth Crucifer would then process out at the end of the service. Acolytes (2) usually carry a candle during Christmas and Easter Services. We’re always looking for parishioners of all ages to join the Sanctuary Team as Chalice, Host, and Crucifer Servers. Please talk with Canon Susan or Bill McCready if you’re interested.

Confirmation & Reaffirmation
: Canon Susan invites you to consider confirming or re-affirming your faith in Jesus through the sacrament of Confirmation. Preparation for this important step on the journey of faith is being planned. Please let Canon Susan know if you would like to undertake this commitment.
