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!

Advent Outreach: Heifer Project

As we begin to prepare our hearts to receive Jesus more fully into our lives during this Advent season, part of that spiritual work is to act more like Jesus, to offer ourselves in service to others, so that everyone’s life can be better.

Approaching the Gospels

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…

Rebooting Advent: A Parish Gathering

Join us for a potluck meal (bring vegetable soup) and many activities to get your heart, head, and home prepared for Christmas. We’ll be making Advent wreaths, gingerbread creches, planting amaryllis to build the anticipation of what is to come, decorate our Christmas tree and Parish Life Center, and for our youngest ones, take home a Godly Play Set on Advent so parents can tell the story again and again with their children.

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…

Community Meal

Each month we are so blessed to offer a good home-cooked meal to our friends and neighbors who come to us as part of the ecumenical Community Meal Program and who come to be fed in many ways. We offer them food as well as companionship, a safe place to relax and enjoy the company of others, our prayerful conversations with them, and most of all our friendship. And of course, as with so much else we do when we…
