Greening of the Church

Stay after the 10:30am service and help decorate the church for the Christmas season with evergreen roping, wreaths, and candles. Children are especially invited to help! This year, there’s some extra fun: If ladders and wreaths aren’t your thing, you can also participate in the “polishing of the silver.” Help us get the Church’s treasures ready for Christmas and the year to come.
Arts and Spiritual Direction Advent Series
Tuesday • December 5 and 12 • 6:30-8:00 pm
We are so happy to welcome back Marion Williams, who will lead our Advent series. Working with the book, Preparing for Christmas, Daily Meditations for Advent by Richard Rohr, participants will be led in art or writing-based meditation and dialogue on the following themes:
December 5: The Cosmic Christ. What are your perceptions of Jesus Christ that need to be changed?
December 12: Back to Faith. When have you been so lost that you had to go back to the very foundation of your faith?
Exercises are simple and no experience in art or writing is necessary. People are welcome to bring snacks for a communal sharing following the sessions.
Introductory Confirmation Class
Sunday • December 10 • 9:30am • Garden Room
Join us for an introductory confirmation class, where we will form a community of seekers, and study the Bible, Theology, Worship and Prayer, Church History, and the Episcopal Church. You are welcome to attend the classes if you just want to learn more about these subjects, whether or not you wish to be confirmed when Bishop Dietsche visits on February 4. For more information contact the Rev. Jennifer Reddall at email@example.com or 212-737-2720.
From Nazareth to Bethlehem with Jesus: Sabbatical in the Holy Land
Sunday • December 17 • 12 noon
In this season we are anticipating the Holy Family’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem for the birth of Jesus. Join Jennifer at noon in the Chapel for photos and stories of present-day Nazareth and Bethlehem during her sabbatical journey in the Holy Land.
Friday • January 26, 2018 • 9:00 am to Saturday • January 27, 2018 • 4:00 pm
The purpose of the diocesan Anti-Racism Workshop is to help us become aware of how the sin of racism impacts all of our lives, and how we all unconsciously and consciously participate in racist systems. Dialogue is the foundation of the two-day workshop (each day runs from 9:00-4:00, and coffee and lunch are provided). We use group exercises and examine scientific and historical evidence concerning the origins of the concept of race and its legacy. To register, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-737-2720.
