Parish Picnic - June 9, 2013
St. Mary's Parish Picnic will be held Sunday, June 9 after the 9:30 service.
Please join us for this fun all-parish event. It is a potluck, so please plan to bring food to share and group games to play. We'll set up outside after the service if it is a nice day, and if the weather is inclement will stay inside and enjoy the new air conditioning in the Parish Hall!
To bring food or staff a grill, please sign up at PerfectPotluck.com via this link:
Hope to see you on the 9th!
Exciting Changes for Church School
Wait till you see this!
Church School at St. Mary’s has undergone a radical transformation, and we are very excited! Incorporating all of last year’s feedback from children, parents and teachers, we are rolling out a variety of new and innovative ideas for children, tweens and teens.
For children K-6 it’s all about “Kings and Queens of the Bible” this year using a new hands-on, multi-age, multisensory, kid-centered curriculum that is fun and easy to teach!
Rite 13 and J2A kids will explore how the Bible is relevant to them, using events in their daily lives, technology and diverse media. Get ready for outreach projects and connecting with youth from around the diocese!
We are also introducing Children’s Chapel during the 10:30 service every Sunday beginning September 16. Children will have an appropriate sermon/story based on the lectionary followed by prayers before processing back to church at the Peace. So please come and see!
September 9 is Welcome Back Sunday with Breakfast at 9:30 for families to reconnect, meet Fr. Giansiracusa and register for Church School. The following Sunday, September 16, classes begin at 9:30 for all kids. Parents and parishioners are asked to attend the forum that day to learn all about these innovations and how you can be a part of it. Mark your calendars, and we look forward to seeing everyone!
