St. Thomas' Weekly Announcements
Happy Memorial Weekend,
I for one am thrilled! Give me hot and humid over gray and cold any day. Although it’s been pretty rainy, the sun came out and we had a wonderful Jazz in the Grass last Sunday. For those who weren’t able to be here, we moved to the Memorial Garden. Many people commented it was the “perfect” place, so we’ll do it again there next year.
This summer some things will slow down—the choir takes a much needed break, our coffee hours become more simple, tutoring takes a break at Zachary Taylor, Tuesday morning Bible Study rests, just to name a few. However, contrary to what some may believe, we are not on summer vacation at St. Thomas. Here are a few things going on….
Pub theology, dinner church, VBS—The Bee-attitudes, Reading Camp, Music Camp, community garden and THE LIFT project begins and ends!!! Additionally, we are well into planning for our program year which will begin Sunday, Sept. 11. Plans are still tentative, but I can tell you we will begin adult formation both on Sunday morning and one night a week for six weeks—our first study will be Episcopal 101—this is for everyone whether you’ve been an Episcopalian for your whole life or are new to the denomination. Stay tuned for more information. Finally as I’m planning, I want to hear from you; if you have ideas or suggestions for the upcoming year, please let me know.
There is much to be excited about,
Just Katherine +
Announcements….. May 29
JUNE PUB THEOLOGY: WHAT! EVANGELISM? evangelism [ih-van-juh-liz-uh m] noun 1. an idea that makes Episcopalians feel awkward. Maybe we're not comfortable knocking on strangers’ doors and asking if they’ve found Jesus, but evangelism—living in Jesus' way and, by example, encouraging others to do the same— is part of our duty as Christians. In Pub Theology, we’ll talk about how we might be able to make evangelism a part of our lives. Can we start by inviting a friend or neighbor to come to Pub Theology? Join us Tuesday, June 7, from 6:30-8 p.m., at Corner Cafe Louisville!
DINNER CHURCH: TABLE FELLOWSHIP The next Dinner Church is Saturday, June 11, from 6:00p.m.– 8:00p.m.., in Fellowship Hall. Just as Jesus dined with all kinds of people, and the Last Supper occurred around a dinner table, we’ll gather for Eucharist and table fellowship. You're invited bring a loaf of bread, a salad, or soup ingredients. Please sign up in the Narthex so we know how many plan to attend.
JUNE KEY—A CELEBRATION OF A LIFE WELL LIVED Please join family and friends Saturday June 11 from 2-4 in the Fellowship Hall as we gather to celebrate June Key. RSVP or get more information from her daughter Tara at
FOOD PANTRY NEEDS YOUR CONTINUING HELP! Children who received free or reduced-cost meals throughout the school year struggle to get enough to eat during the summer. Please keep bringing unexpired, non-perishable food items to St. Thomas every week. Your gifts, along with fresh produce from our Community Garden, go directly to EACM where they are distributed to our neighbors in need.
THE BEE-ATTITUDES Summer means more time as a family, right? More time at the pool, more time devouring grilled hamburgers, more time without the demands of school. What if it also meant more time with God? More time to nourish your spiritual appetite? More time making memories of learning about the love of God as a family? This summer, Louisville area Episcopal churches will host Family Style Vacation Bible School on Thursday evenings (July 7- Aug 4) from 5:30-7:30. We will gather at a different church each week, but every week supper will be served! For more information talk to Katherine+ or visit the web site:
