Bible & Biscuits

The Lord's Prayer Sermon Series

Our next prayer “event” will be a sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer through Sunday, October 20 . This will be a chance to delve deep into the most frequently prayed prayer in the Christian world.  We will take time to pray and meditate on the words Jesus taught us.

The Story Returns

We begin our third and final season of The Story by covering the life of Jesus, Paul and the early church.  I am excited to continue our journey through the Scripture together.  Story groups will meet on Sundays at 9:30 am, Tuesdays at 8:45 am, and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm each week through the second week in December.

Episcopal School Sunday October 6

We will observe Episcopal School Sunday on October 6 during the 10:30 am worship service. We will have elements of school chapel and students serving in leadership roles. On Wednesday, October 9, you are invited to attend School Chapel in the church at 8:00 am, followed by a tour of the school led by the sixth graders, and a conversation with Tracy Lamon, the Head of School, in the Lounge. We look forward to seeing you there.

The Great Jelly Jar Homecoming

It’s again time for the Great Jelly Jar Homecoming. If you have one or two Mason or Ball jelly jars hanging around the house, bring them to church so we may reuse them for the Antique Show. Jars may be dropped off on Sunday or during the week.  If you are a jelly maker or pickle maker let us know if you’d like some of the recycled jars.
