The Wise Men Are Coming!
The Adoration of the Wise Men

On Saturday January 5th, the eve of the Epiphany, we will celebrate the giving of the great gifts that the magi brought the baby Jesus. We will begin with the Holy Eucharist at 3 PM. At this service the magi will appear and bring gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. After the service we will gather in the parish hall for dinner. The dessert will be an Epiphany Cake and a surprise in the cake will yield our new Epiphany royalty.


Classes are held on Sundays at 9:30. They are multi-age classes for children preschool through 6th grade, and meet in Saint Matthew's Room in Peirce Hall. Classes are taught by a rotating team of teachers. We use the Seedling curriculum which was developed for use in smaller churches with multi-age groupings. Please call LeAnn Bettencourt or the office if you are willing to help.


Children's Chapel meets in Saint Matthew's Room each Sunday between 10:30 and 11:10. The children are then brought to the service. Children's Chapel is for ages 3-6th grade and each lesson is based on the readings for that Sunday. If you would like to teach or be a substitute teacher please call the office or LeAnn Bettencourt.

Daughters of the King DAUGHTERS OF THE KING

The Daughters of the King will gather Thursday, January 3rd at 9:30 AM for Communion followed by social hour at 10:00, and 10:30 for the meeting. The sisters are now reading a new book, "The Practice of Prayer", for group discussion. They continue their service of prayer and work. To add your concerns to their prayer list, please call the the church office. To learn more about the Daughters of the King, visit the Daughters of the King home page.


ECW is changing!!! There is no longer an organization on the Diocesan level. There are no officers, no convention, and no ECW assessments. In our parish, we will continue to meet on the second Wednesday for food and fellowship. Our January meeting will be held on January 9th, at 10 AM, followed by a pot luck luncheon. This meeting will be devoted to tying up loose ends. Because Ash Wednesday falls on our regular meeting day in February, our February pot luck will be held on February 6th. Plan to attend both meetings and see what's new.
