The first adult choir practice of the fall will be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, starting at 7:00 pm in the choir room. All are welcome. No music reading skills required - only a desire to praise God in song. I am looking forward to a wonderful new year of music and fellowship. If you would like to be involved in the choir but can't come to an evening rehearsal, please let Susan Bill, Director of Music Ministries know.
A note from Debbie Puglisi, Sunday School Coordinator
Since it seemed to be helpful last year, I will continue to send out an email each month letting you know what your children will be doing in Sunday School. As a reminder - ALL Parish Worship will continue to be the first Sunday of the month. Godly Play students (Pre-K through 5th grade) will meet every Sunday in the month, except for the first Sunday. Middle/High school students (6th through 12th grade) will meet the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. There will be nursery coverage every Sunday.
September 18: Creation
The Godly Play story of Creation starts with the very first line of Genesis: "In the beginning . . ." Our lesson takes us through the six days in which God created our world. On the seventh day God rested. We talk about the seventh day being a good day for us to remember all the gifts that God has given us and we think about special places where we feel close to God and his gifts. You can ask your child where their special place may be.
