Outreach – Up Next



We are off to a great start on our Honey Nut Cheerio challenge. Twenty-eight boxes were donated for the July food distribution. Let’s keep it going for August 11!


During the month of August we will be looking to collect specific school supplies. Please look for details in the August Newsletter which will be in your mailbox this week!


Confirmation classes will begin in mid-September. If you or a family member is interested in joining us, let us know by filling out this google form. This isn’t a commitment, just a way to find out who is interested. And, of course, if you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to reach out to Fr. James directly.

Intercession brings before God the needs of others (BCP p.857)
The Parish Prayer list is included in the monthly newsletter that is sent through the mail. Additional copies are also available on the table in the Narthex. To add your prayer needs to the list, you can contact Fr. James, Nancy Haas, or use the form on our website.

As some restrictions have been lifted, we are now allowed to gather for fellowship following the 10 AM Sunday service. A list has been been posted outside of the church office with summer dates. We will need volunteers to sign up to provide a cold beverage out on the lawn. At this time, no cookies or snacks are necessary, given the current restrictions in place. Plenty of dates still available for your contribution!

We look forward to seeing you back at church if you feel comfortable there. Masks are optional for those who have been vaccinated Services will also continue to be livestreamed on our YouTube Channel. Be sure to hit the SUBSCRIBE button!

During this time, the rector and trained Eucharistic ministers may visit others to bring them the Eucharist. Meeting in outdoor spaces of homes will be preferred. Contact Fr. James if you would like to schedule a visit. 

You can still mail pledge contributions to the church at this time.  The mail is checked regularly.  You can also securely give online.  Go to and click on the “Give” button on the top right hand corner of the webpage.

Diocesan News

The Loving Presence Video captures the essence of America’s racist past through the testimonies of lay and clergy persons of the diocese. Reaffirming the recommendations of the Loving Presence Document, our video invites all people to reaffirm their commitment to ending racism in our nation and renew their baptismal covenant to Christ, creating a revolution of the heart. Watch it here.

Our Diocese has partnered with several pharmacies to create free vaccination sites across the diocese.  If you are looking for a vaccine, you are welcome to these places, no registration needed (but do bring ID & insurance card):
