Lessons from the Wilderness

April 18 - May 16 at 10:05am

Team taught by the clergy

Participate via Zoom or attend in person in Hampton Hall (Capacity is limited)

The last year has been a wilderness period for many of us. We've felt exiled from church, friendly gatherings, and travel, among so many things. But the Bible shows us that God works in unique ways during those wilderness times. Join us Sunday mornings in Hampton Hall or on Zoom to reflect on spiritual lessons from the COVID wilderness.

Bible Reading Plan

Our Bible Reading Plan organizes the lectionary into a pattern of daily readings. By following along with the church calendar, each week we learn about some aspect of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. Our plan provides a way for parishioners to deepen their knowledge of the Bible, prepare for Sunday worship, and become more familiar with the enduring themes of the church calendar.

Reading Schedule:   May - June 2021

CLC Men's Groups

Most men have many acquaintances but few trusted friends. Along with the truth from scripture, the potential for meaningful relationships with other men is perhaps the most needed and appreciated aspect of the Christian Leadership Concepts (CLC) process.  CLC involves small groups of men who desire to grow in their faith, their awareness of God’s work in their lives, and their places of service within the body of Christ.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a group of experienced and novice knitters and crocheters who make shawls for those experiencing any kind of hardship.

Prayer shawls are given to those who would benefit from a spiritual “hug.” Prayers are said as they are being made, and finished shawls are blessed by a priest. Feedback from recipients has been very rewarding.
