Mother Virginia Brown is coming the week of August 10 - and will lead several classes on liturgical planning
Monday-Wednesday evenings, August 10, 11, 12 from 5-7 pm - You NEED to attend these in order to prepare for licensure as worship leaders. Anyone who has not signed up before is also welcome to begin this process with her. This is important for St Alban's - that many of you are ready to take up responsibility for leadership in worship when a priest is unavailable.
Others are ALSO invited!
Those who are practicing leading Morning Prayer,
please DO meet after Church this Sunday as usual.
We will NOT meet next Sunday as you will be working with Mother Virginia Monday-Wednesday.
School supplies are available everywhere just now, mostly at reduced prices - This is the time to gather up crayons, pencils, pens, watercolors, markers, small boxes to hold pencils, etc. for the Christmas boxes we regularly fill for children -
Marcus Cox will be leaving for Job Corps this Tuesday, August 4. Please pray for him as he moves into adult job training and work. He will NOT have phone, but will be able to send and receive email:
Bishop's Committee will met every Thursday morning at 11:00 in the month of August to be sure we have people lined up to do all the easily-forgettable things once Mother Cathy retires in September. Everyone is always welcome to attend.
Our fall schedule will return on Sunday, September 6, with Eucharist at 10:30 and a celebration pot-luck afterwards. Sunday School will begin the NEXT Sunday, September 13 at 9:30.
Mother Cathy and Kathy Brown will both officially retire on Sunday, September 6, Cathy's ordination anniversary. Both will still be in town, however, and available to assist when needed.
We have had two people ill and in the hospital, Lee Schmidt and Tanya Schmidt - Please pray for full recovery for both of them and continued good health.
