A Warm Welcome: Coffee Hour

We love it when the community gathers to just be together: to catch up on the past week, to share our joys and concerns, to grow together in Christ and to feel what it means to be a part of the living and moving Body of Christ. Each week parishioners provide delicious and healthy foods to share. Please always feel welcome to come and be a part of our community.

Quilting Ministry

Each week people gather to create a quilt which is raffled off at the end of the year to raise money for the residents of The Episcopal Home. The members of this ministry also make other creative projects they sell at their annual Pumpkin Patch. No quilting experience needed, just an enjoyment of the company of others!

Morning Prayer

The backbone of worship in the Episcopal Church is the Daily Office, a collection of prayers offered throughout the day, beginning with Morning Prayer, a quiet, sacred service that can be done individually (for there is always someone else praying with you) or together in a group. Please join us for time of reading scripture and offering prayers.

Healing Service at The Episcopal Home

We gather mid-week to receive healing prayers and to celebrate the Holy Eucharist together. This is a lovely time of reading scripture, asking for God’s healing grace to be within our own heart, mind, body, and soul or for those who are on our heart. There’s an intimacy of communion when the group gathered is small and knows each other well. All are welcome to attend. It’s a wonderful way to intentionally connect with God’s grace part way through the…

Approaching the Gospels BIBLE STUDY

Each month we gather to reflect upon the scriptures together. As we heard in our reading from Acts on the 5th Sunday of Easter, “How can I understand without a guide?”. The Ethiopian Eunuch knew that he needed help to make sense of the scriptures. In this particular approach to scriptures which we use on the first Sunday of each month, we invite and encourage each other to offer thoughts and reflections on the scriptures as well as look directly…

Community Meal

Twice each month, on the first and second Mondays of the month, we open our doors and share a meal with our neighbors and friends who come to us hungry for a good home-cooked meal and our friendship. Typically we serve 55-70 guests a full and well-balanced meal. This is part of our community’s care for those in need of physical food as well as the spiritual food of friendship. It is an amazing opportunity to extend the grace offered…

Wednesday evening Spiritual formation group gathering

We gather together to enjoy spiritual companionship, to create a safe space to seek and explore, to learn together, to share our thoughts and questions, and to live out our baptismal vows of “continuing in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in the prayers”. We are being faithful members who want to know more about God and to know God more deeply. We meet every other Wednesday at Mother Barbara’s home. Topics vary from learning about…

Spirituality of Eucharist

The Episcopal Church understands the centrality of the Holy Eucharist in our Christian lives. We celebrate this sacrament of praise and thanksgiving each week, coming forward each time expecting to be transformed by the love and grace of Christ. In addition to understanding the history and tradition of the various parts of the Eucharistic service, it is helpful to explore the spirituality of entering fully into the service. This can involve exploring how our heart and soul is touched by…

Community Meal

This is an opportunity for us to reach out into the community and be the hands and feet of Christ to serve a meal to our friends and guests from the community. We serve a home-cooked warm meal twice a month as part of the ecumenical church group program to feed the hungry in our neighborhoods. We feed them in heart and body through our loving care and delicious meals.

SPO Egg Money Collection

Every month we ask our members to support our commitment to SPO (Shippensburg Produce Outreach), our local food panty, with a donation of $75.00 per month or a total of $900 per year. This month allows our community to provide fresh eggs to our clients. This is an important reach out into our community that we have been participating in for many years. We are grateful to be a part of making it better for the people who are our…

worship committee meeting

This is an opportunity for those who lead worship to come together and plan, reflect, and imagine. This is a time for people to share their own experiences of worship and to work always to create meaningful and moving worship experiences for all parishioners, ranging from the quiet spoken service at 8 a.m. to the festive youth-filled service at 10 a.m., the Holy Week services which walk us through the last week of Jesus’ life, to the quarterly Contemplative Eucharists…
