Announcements through September 22, 2013

St. Michael’s ECW Women will meet on Wednesday, September 18th at 10:30 am in the Parish Center. We invite you to join us for a business meeting, a speaker and a Potluck Lunch.  Deacon Michael Meyers will give us presentation about the good work being accomplished at St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic in Nogales.  If you have shoes ready to leave your closet please bring them to donate to Deacon Meyer’s Shoebox.  Bring a salad or a dessert to share.  ECW will provide the beverage.  It feels good to get back to business…you are invited join us!  The annual ECW State Convention is on October 5, in Phoenix. Sign-up sheets are in the back of the church. More information will be available at the meeting.

Women’s Bible Study is held each Wednesday at 6:30 PM in the Parish Center.  This year we will study one of the most courageous women in the Bible: Esther. We will explore the history and see how this can apply to us today. All women are invited to attend; there is always room for one more.

You are invited to join us for Bible Study each Wednesday morning at 10 am in the Womble Library. Peter Schmidt is the facilitator. The Bible Study will be centered on the Old Testament. Join us and bring a friend.

Taize Service of Prayer is this Tuesday, September 17th at 6:45 pm. at the Mary Altar in church. All are invited to attend and bring a friend.

Were you here in the early days of St. Michael’s or even in the middle years as the church was expanded and the current organ was first purchased? Karen Blocher would love to include your St. Michael's memories in our special 60th Anniversary issue of The Messenger, coming out later this month. If you have a special memory to share, write it out (a single paragraph is fine) and either email it to Karen at mavarin2@gmail.com or drop it off in the church office. Or if you have one to share and don't want to write it yourself, tell your story to Karen at Coffee Hour today after the 10:15 AM Mass. Let's make this 60th Anniversary Michaelmas a great celebration of this wonderful place! Old photos and other documents from the early days are also welcome, to add to the church archive.
Also needed: we are updating the church website and putting together a booklet with all the different ministries here at St. Michael's, from Altar Guild and Godly Play to Deacon's Shoebox, Volunteers and the Meals program, from Taize to POZ Cafe. If you are involved in any of these groups, please note that we need a brief description of each, when it meets and what you do. Thank You!
