Sunday, August 26, 2018:
14th Sunday after Pentecost
The last Sunday of the month is usually our alternative music Sunday at 10 am, and this coming Sunday would normally be our Bluegrass Band. With a number of the band unavailable this week, however, Nat Lewis and Ron Valentino will be leading the music in a style best described as Americana. The Gospel this Sunday continues our late summer forray into John's Gospel, where we have heard a series of passages in which Jesus describes himself as the Bread of Life, leading up to this past Sunday's reading in which Jesus talks about how his followers must eat his body and drink his blood as a metaphor for the way in which the followers of Jesus as asked to make his life their life. This Sunday's reading finds many of the disciples unable to except this teaching. We'll be exploring that in our services this Sunday.
Our Godly Play classes for children are now on break for the summer, and will resume in mid-September. Until then, we will have a children's space at the front of the church through the summer Sundays. This will allow younger children to have some quiet activities while they worship with the community at the 10 am service. Parents may sit in the front row, or join their kids in the KidSpace. The Nursery will be open every Sunday during the summer to accommodate our youngest members.
The Youth Group's regular program has also come to a conclusion for the summer, and will resume in September.
Here are more details about our normal Sunday worship schedule:
Our 8:00 am service is held in the Chapel, except on the first Sunday of the month, when it is held in the Church. It includes Communion, Sermon, and a little music. It follows Rite I from the Book of Common Prayer ("thee, thou, thy" language) and is a quieter, more contemplative service.
Our 10:00 am service is held in the Church, and is the one most people attend. It follows a cycle of liturgies or services over each month. The choir sings on most Sundays.
We have a professionally staffed nursery (located in Angus Hall) for infants through age 3. It is open from 9:00 am until the end of the 10:00 am service.
Sunday mornings are active for children. Children begin the 10 am service each Sunday in church, and then leave in procession after the first reading to gather separately, first to hear the Gospel reading of the day and then to go to their classes. Children's Christian formation includes Godly Play for children age four through fifth grade. Parents can pick up their children from Trinity Hall and bring them into church to receive Communion if they wish, or they may pick up their children after church is over.
