Pulpit Swap

The Rev. Bruce Cheney of St. Paul’s, Newport News will be our preacher at both services on Sunday, September 9 and will also present an Adult Forum about the ministry with homeless folks that St. Paul’s and The Community Action Network carry out in downtown Newport News. Anne and John will be conducting services at St. Paul’s that morning.

Ministries Guide, Instructed Eucharist, and Homecoming Brunch
September 16
Thanks to Bill Wilds’ diligence, our newly updated Ministries Guide will be distributed to parishioners at both services on September 16.  Instead of a sermon, the service will be an Instructed Eucharist, an opportunity for us to take a look at the different parts of our liturgy and at why we do what we do.  The 10:30 service will be followed by a Homecoming Brunch, graciously hosted by Joy Johnson and her team of helpers.

Parish Discernment Introduction Meetings
Sept. 25 at 7 p.m.
Sept. 26 at 10 a.m.
Sept. 30 at 9:15 a.m.
As we begin our parish discernment process in response to the closing of the school, it is crucial that parishioners understand how the discernment process will work. To that end, the Vestry has decided to offer three Parish Discernment Introduction meetings. The same material will be covered at each of the three meetings. Please make every effort to be present for one of these sessions so that we can all begin on the same page. The discernment process will involve at least two components: first, a careful inward look at who we are and the gifts we have to offer at this moment in our life together; and then, based on that information, a wider conversation with our local community to determine how St. Andrew’s can best partner with our neighbors to address needs in our community. Discernment takes time, and our process will continue to evolve as we listen to one another and to the Holy Spirit at work in our midst.
