Good Afternoon!

We had a wonderful time discussing Hidden Figures on Tuesday evening up at Ellen and Marty's home. This story about the African-American women working for NASA has only really come to light thanks to this book and the movie that was made from it. The movie is wonderful and we do plan on showing it at a movie night one evening this summer. The book however, goes much further into depth about segregation, those who fought it and those who refused to abide by the newly made laws to end it. If you haven't read it I highly recommend it!

We are also going to host a movie night in the parish hall to watch "Hidden Figures" which will be open to all.

Stay tuned for more details!Our next selection will be, A Story Like the Wind by Laurens Van Der Post. " Van der Post’s incomparable knowledge of Africa illuminates this epic novel, set near the Kalahari Desert, about a boy on the verge of manhood, his experiences with the wonder and mystery of a still-primitive land, and his secret friendship with the Bushman whose life he saves. The narrative of A Story like the Wind continues in A Far-Off Place." (description from Amazon page)

Meg and Linda S. have both read it and loved the writing and language used to really place the reader in the heart and soul of Africa. 

Do to vacation schedules our next will be meeting on Thursday, August 2nd. We will meet at Linda M's house so that Pat Peyser is able to participate. Aaron will have a few in Levin & Co. in about a week and a half. It is also available on Amazon, and for those veering away from Amazon, eBay is another option. I didn't see that it is available on Kindle but those of you who use Kindle may be more clever than I! 

all the best,

Linda

For Our Young People
 
Christmas Pageant
 
 Our young people put on a wonderful Christmas Pageant showing the story of Mary and Joseph as they searched for a place to stay and were turned away at all of the Inns, until they were finally offered a place in a stable. They led us to draw comparisons to the plight of the homeless in our community searching for shelter. 
 
Sunday School:

Our young people get personalized care in our Sunday School program that meets at 11 am each Sunday morning during the school year. The children and their teachers use a curriculum that follows the Church Year and the lectionary cycle of the Episcopal Church. 

Many of our children have been prepared to receive Holy Communion. This is done jointly by the priest and parents and is usually a response to the child’s own request to be allowed to receive. Children in their early to mid-teen’s are subsequently prepared for Confirmation by attending a class that meets weekly, as needed. 

Child Care:  

We do have childcare available for the younger children.
