Common Grounds: Every Sunday after the 9:45 service

Sunday, November 11th - Chaplain Rob Caywood of Flower Hospital will help us think about what we want at the end of our lives, and how to talk with our family members, whether in the abstract or in a crisis. Chaplain Caywood's visit follows up on Mark Burton's program in the spring. Our families can grow closer as we share with them our thoughts, concerns, wishes, faith, and values. We can help them by doing our work sooner rather than later.

Donate to Hurricane Florence & Hurricane Michael Relief through Episcopal Relief & Development
We respond to storms in the United States and U.S. territories through our U.S. Disaster Program. Through our partnerships with Episcopal dioceses, we offer resources and training to help people prepare for disasters and provide emergency support so vulnerable people can make a sustained recovery after the storm. The benefit of our partnership with Episcopal churches is that these congregations are already deeply integrated within their communities. In other words, the Episcopal Church is there before responders arrive and will remain long after the news cameras have gone. You can help provide critical relief to affected communities by donating to our Hurricane Relief Fund. To donate and read the latest updates, visit https://support.episcopalrelief.org/hurricane-relief.

Please donate nonperishable food items to support the local food bank. Drop off items in the baskets near the entrances.

A New Book in the Claudia Hannaford Library

 The Sacred Enneagram:  Finding Your Unique Path to Spiritual Growth by Christopher L Heuertz, has been added to the church library. The Enneagram is a personality test of sorts that helps us to figure out who we are and how we relate to others and God.  In the book, the author reveals 9 ways we get lost and 9 ways we find our way home to our True Self and to God.   Check it out sometime!
