Throughout Lent, we will gather for Soup + Story: a time to come together weekly to break open our sacred stories, share our own stories, and gather for a simple soup supper. We'll meet on Tuesdays in Lent, from 6:00 - 7:30 pm in the Parish Hall. It's a great opportunity to get to know other folks in the church and discover more ways to plug into this community. We will be diving into stories from the Acts of the Apostles and make our way through a pilgrimage of discernment: where do we find deep gladness, what do we see as the hungers of the world and our community, and where do these overlap? Come for fellowship, come to listen, come to begin charting the way forward together. All are welcome, and signups to bring soup and bread will be available soon.

Episcopal Youth Event sign-up now! Please apply now!  Can't say enough good things about my experience at the Episcopal Youth Event in 2011.  EYE 2020 (July 7-11) is looking to be even more awesome. The Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) is a triennial event for the entire Episcopal Church. Over 1500 people (high school students, adult mentors, and Bishops from around the church) come together for a little under a week. Time is spent in worship, large group presentations, small group discussions on a variety of topics and a lot of time hanging out and meeting people from around the world. EYE2020 is taking place in Washington D.C. and the diocese is subsidizing most of the costs.  I would like to take as many youth as possible to this, so please apply early so we can hopefully accommodate everyone.  We can help fundraise the remaining amount.
Read more here and please apply.
