Holy Eucharist Rite II
Coffee in Mathes Hall
Summers are usually about relaxation and vacations, but this one is a little different. Our focus and attention have been on the many repairs to our church. The roof leaked, the birds nested in our rafters, the floor was buckled due to leaks. We were overdue for some “preening”. So, since July 6th contractors have been working to fix these issues.
As we go to press the roof is nearing completion-3 to 4 more dry days are needed. Much of the woodwork has been replaced (with more to come). Then painting begins on the ceiling in the church, replacement of all our light bulbs, and the last thing being done will be the new floor. We’re expecting completion near the end of August.
Much thanks to Andy Boyd for overseeing this for us, and to Stewardship for doing fundraising to replenish depleted reserve funds from this quarter million dollar project. A lot of folks are working very hard to make this happen, and we are grateful for their work and sacrifice.
We have been meeting in Mathes hall for worship and so far that has gone well. We continue to offer Sunday School and nursery in the basement. The Outreach team has been busy with a reading program at Oakwood Terrace. The Adult Christian ed team has been working on plans for the fall. We will celebrate our four high school graduates (Tyler Jordon, Connor Boyd, Watts Shumate, and Sarah Roberts) on August 10th at the 10:30am Eucharist.
In late August our 5 Episcopal Youth Event attenders will give a presentation on their experiences in Philadelphia (after the 10:30am service). We are hosting a Blood drive August 27th. We will have our Rally Day Potluck on Sunday Sept. 7th!
In other words, it’s not just about the roof. Ministry is so many areas is continuing and flourishing. The church is not just a building, but the people, the Spirit, and the life inside of it. Come join us as we raise the roof this summer!
