Heritage and Hope

Stewardship 2018

We honor our history, give thanks for our present, and look
forward to our future in the hope of Jesus Christ.

† Pledges will be gathered next Sunday, November 18.  The 10AM service will be followed by a festive all-parish luncheon. This will be catered, so please RSVP to the Parish Office at (610) 642-6617 or holyapostlespa@gmail.com.

† If did not receive a stewardship letter or pledge card, or for any other questions or concerns, please notify James+

Worship

† Wednesday, November 21st, at 7:00 p.m. Evensong on Thanksgiving Eve. Following the service there will be a Fireside Reception in the Memorial Room (please bring a beverage and appetizer to share). RSVP to Judy Jervis at (610) 348-5529 or tuesbowler@outlook.com if attending reception.

† Bishop Gutierrez will visit CHA on Sunday, December 9th for Confirmations, Receptions, and Reaffirmations.  If you are interested in any of those rites, or would just like to know more, talk to James+.

† Morning Prayer is offered at 8:30AM on Sunday mornings.  Morning Prayer according to the Book of Common Prayer is a beautiful and contemplative service, and a wonderful way to begin to Lord’s Day.  This does not affect 9AM choir practice or the 10AM service of Holy Eucharist.

† On every second Sunday of the month, healing prayer  will be offered immediately after communion during the 10:00 service.

Children and Youth

† Nursery Childcare is available during the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service for children ages 3 and younger in the Godly Play Room.

† Sunday School: Children Preschool – 2nd grade and 3rd – 8th grade attend Sunday classes at 10:00 a.m., the same time as the church service starts; children join their parents in the church in time for communion. Classes are held on the 1st, 3rd, & 4th Sundays of the month. On 2nd Sundays children attend church with their parents, either the 10:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist service or the 5:30 p.m. Family Worship Service. When there is a 5th Sunday, children attend church with their parents, with some of the children taking part in leading the service.

† Confirmation Classes: November 11 and  25 at 5 p.m.

† Holy Apostles is working toward establishing a flourishing children’s choir program. Visit www.holyapostlespa.org/choir-school for more information.
