Bulletin for Sunday, 9/17/17 (10 AM Service)

Here is the bulletin for the Sunday, 9/17/17, 10 AM service.

Christmas in September?

For the Samaritan Purse shoeboxes it is! St. Elizabeth’s Guild has started collecting items for the Operation Christmas Child project and needs your help. Now is the time to watch for sale items to fill the boxes. School items are on sale everywhere! We also need hats, gloves, scarves, craft items, stuffed animals, toys, socks, t-shirts, and games. They are NOT accepting liquids, tooth paste or candy this year. There is a large, colorful box in Turnbull Hall for your donations that will be stored in the shed until November. Please do not bring actual shoeboxes – the plastic ones will be donated.  Having a hard time finding items?  Check out the table on display in Turnbull hall.  There are many suggestions to help you.  Thank you.

Saturday Spiritual Book Group

You are invited to a discussion led by The Rev. Peter Rodgers on his book, Exploring the Old Testament in the New. The lecture is scheduled for September 30, 2017, at 10:00 AM in Turnbull Hall. This event is of interest to all who want to explore the richness of the use of the Hebrew Bible in the New Testament. The Rev.

Monday Evening Book Group

Tege Montmorency is planning to lead a nine or ten week book reading and discussion group on Monday evenings for one hour.  The book is entitled Silence, A Christian History; the author is Diarmaid MacCulloch who is also the author of A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years. Third-year EfM students study the latter book, but one does not have to be an EfM graduate in order to participate in Tege's book group. The group would meet at 6:30 on Monday evenings, beginning September 18th; the group would take a snack break with the ongoing EfM class at about 7:30 PM, then be free to leave. Please email Tege for any questions.

Floral Design Class

Ever wanted to learn how to do floral arrangements for your home (or church)? The opportunity presents itself on Saturday, September 23rd from 9:00-11:00 AM in Turnbull Hall. Our very own floral expert, Billy Meng, will be teaching us!

This class is open to all members of the parish and their friends. There will be a sign-up on the kiosk in the courtyard. All you need to do is sign up and bring your own flowers and clippers to use. A vase, greens, and oasis will be supplied, and when you go home you will have a beautiful arrangement to take with you! Hope to see you all there!
