UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS

Wed
Lay Eucharistic Minister Training/Refresher Course @ Christ Episcopal Church
May 18 @ 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Now that we have a priest, Fr. Ron, and some new or returning LEMs, it has been brought to our attention that we could all benefit from some re-training of our roles as Eucharistic ministers. Going over the “why’s” and “how to do things” will benefit all of us. With that in mind, you are invited to a get-together with instructions followed, of course, by pizza, salad, and undoubtedly some adult beverages. We will meet for LEM training on Wednesday, May 18 at 5:30 at Christ Church.

Please let me (randylaf@sbcglobal.net) or Franz (frontoffice@christepiscopalchurch.com) know that you’ll be there.

Episcopal Campus Ministry (ECM) strives to offer deeper experiences in the faith journeys of college students through worship, fellowship, and vocational discernment. ECM is a lively place for mentoring the Christian formation of both seekers and those who grew up in Episcopal churches. At weekly ECM meetings, students are recognized, challenged, supported, inspired, and engaged in honest dialogue around their faith in order to foster their potential. We provide a culture where students can imagine and explore new possibilities for ministry. These imagined possibilities are necessary for the continued vitality of the church and for God’s mission in the world. Through campus ministry, we equip students with the tools for facing the tough ethical, moral, religious, relational, and ecological challenges of a complex world.
