DOES ANYONE HAVE A VAN?
The Community Market needs someone with a van to pick up 55 turkeys from Belmonts on Sunday morning, November 18 and to distribute them from the van during our special Thanksgiving Market from 1:00 to 3:00 that day. Contact Becky Johnson, johnsRN@yahoo.com, or Sue Tassone, email@example.com, if interested or have questions.
Father Craig leads a series of discussions based on Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s call for the church to Journey in the Way of Love. This series will look at the seven areas the Presiding Bishop has called us to explore, with the goal for each of us to develop our own rule of life.
A South County Health Flu Clinic will be here on Sunday, October 21 from 8:30 to 1:30 in the Conference Room.
On Sunday, October 21, the Confirmation Class is sponsoring a parish wide harvest fair immediately following the 10:15 service until 2pm. The afternoon will include, Giant Jenga, Corn Hole, Donuts on a String, pumpkin decorating, potato sack races, as well as other traditional harvest activities. There will be food as well. Please, invite friends and plan to join us for what should prove to be a fun event for all ages.
If interested in helping out, we would love baked goods and donations of pumpkins. Contact Kristin Costello for more information through the church office.
SENIOR LUNCH – ELDER ATTORNEY SPEAKER
Our next senior lunch will be held on Thursday, October 25 at Noon. As always we will start with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist followed by lunch in the Parish Hall. Our speaker will be Attorney Laura Krohn, who specializes in helping seniors plan for tomorrow in regards to Social Security and Medicare issues that arise with catastrophic and long term health care needs. She assists her clients with ways to protect assets against the potential costs of a long term catastrophic illness. The issues Attorney Krohn will be discussing are issues we all must plan for in advance in order to protect ourselves from the uncertainty of the future.
AROUND THE WORLD IN 88 KEYS
On Friday, October 26 at 7:00 p.m., St. Peter’s is hosting a piano concert of favorite classics including: Beethoven’s Fur Elise, DeBussy’s Clair de Lune, Chopin’s Heroic Polonaise, and Gershwin’s The Rhapsody in Blue. Pianist, Jodie DeSalvo, is a graduate of the Hartt School of Music in CT and the Manhattan School of Music in NY. Tickets are $10 at the door and half of the proceeds will benefit the Community Market.
COMMUNITY MARKET NEWS
We are already beginning to collect food for the Thanksgiving Market. You can help by donating any of the following foods: Stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, jarred gravy, olives. Thank you for your help.
We love having all ages young and old worshiping with us. For our youngest worshippers we know attending an hour long service can be demanding. To help with this, we have set up a soft corner in the parish hall to allow those who need a break from the service to toddle around, play, etc. while the service is in progress. We have also provided a speaker so parents are able to stay tuned to the service until their child is ready to rejoin the congregation.
Stay tuned to Instagram “stpetersbts” or on Facebook at “St Peters by-the-Sea Episcopal Church” Remember, for those who have Flat Jesus spending the week with them, email your pictures throughout the week to Fr. Craig at firstname.lastname@example.org so he can post them on Facebook and Instagram.
DO YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER NEED A HOSPITAL OR HOME VISIT?
If you, or someone in your Rhode Island family, is ill or hospitalized and would like a visit from Fr. Craig or a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, please call the Church office. As much as we like to think we know everything, sometimes we need you to let us know. So please call us if you would like a hospital or home visit.
ALTAR FLOWERS OR SANCTUARY LAMP
Please remember that there is a sign-up sheet (on the bulletin board across from the kitchen) to request dedicating altar flowers or the sanctuary lamp candle in memory or thanksgiving. We have several Sundays available. Sign up early to get a particular Sunday of importance; maybe to remember a birthday or the anniversary of a loved one’s passing.
WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY
The Wednesday Noon Bible Study has resumed with Father Craig. Anyone interested in developing a more in depth understanding of the Sunday readings are welcome to bring a bag lunch and join the discussion.
Remember that Morning Prayer is being said Tuesday-Thursday at 9:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome.
