Announcements – 9/16/2018

Worship

† Morning Prayer now is held at 9:15 a.m. (not 9:00 a.m.), Tuesdays through Fridays. (On Wednesdays there will be Morning Prayer at 9:15 rather than Eucharist at 7:30 a.m.)

† Beginning Sunday, September 30th, Morning Prayer will be offered at 8:30 a.m. 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 will not affect 9:00 a.m. choir practice or the 10:00 a.m. service of Holy Eucharist.

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

† Sunday, October 7th, we will celebrate the Feast of St. Faith during our 10:00 a.m. service.  This special service will include the rededication of the St. Faith Gospel Book for our use.  That evening, we will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi with our annual Blessing of the Beasts beginning at 5:00 p.m.  Bring your pet to church (restrained in a species appropriate fashion) to receive a blessing!

† Mark your calendars: Sunday October 21st at 5:30 PM, A Celebration of New Ministry (Installation of James as 5th Rector of CHA),  and the celebration of the 50 Anniversary of CHA becoming a parish. Bishop Daniel Gutierrez will preside.

† 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+.

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 Class will continue to be held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 5 p.m.

Meet at the church at 5 p.m. to drive together, or meet at 5:30 p.m. at the Darby Community Center (1021 Ridge Avenue, Darby PA). There is an online sign-up sheet (link below) as well as a sign-up sheet posted in the Parish Hall.

Parish Life

Feb. 17th and June 23rd are open. Please know that the flower memorials automatically renew annually unless you request otherwise, scheduled for the date on the Sunday closest to the original request. To take advantage of this opportunity to honor or remember loved ones with a flower memorial, please notify Patty Wertz of the Altar Guild.

† This Friday, September 21st at 6:00 p.m.: Last Happy Hour of the season!

† Online church calendar: Stay connected with what is happening in your church. Visit the online calendar at http://www.calendarwiz.com/holyapostlespa.

Education

† Fall Reading and Discussion: This fall, interested adults will read Ben Myers’s new book called The Apostles’ Creed: A Guide to the Ancient Catechism.  Want to deepen your understanding of the essentials of Christian faith, and how they are relevant to your life?  You need to read this excellent book! In order to include as many people as possible, James+ will facilitate several discussions about this book on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings.  But even if you cannot make it to the discussions you can still read this short, engaging, and very readable book. Sign up in the parish hall if you want a copy and the church will make a bulk order.

Outreach and Service

Connect by Night

† Connect by Night is winding down. We are very grateful to everyone who has helped in so many ways to make this a successful outreach program. A special thanks to Joe Zorc who stepped in to coordinate the program, and the Vestry and property committee who did a lot of behind the scenes work to make it happen,

† After this service, please help us move some books and other furniture to make room for our guests.

Darby Mission
