This Week at Holy Family

LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITY Last Sunday, the sermon reflected on the word “provoke” used in scripture. How is God provoking you to draw ever more closely to Him and help build up the Kingdom here on earth? Perhaps God is nudging you to consider being a part of the leadership team at church? We are looking for one or two more Bishop Committee members, including a Bishop’s Warden. The commitment is for three years and we meet every third Sunday from 11:45-1 p.m., more or less. We need people who are excited about the church and want to discern our future. Please talk with Vicar Corinne if you are interested.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE to turn in your pledge for 2019! It’s going to be an exciting year with new people stepping into new roles. Won’t you share your blessings from God and invest in this most holy community? Extra forms are available in the hallway. Thank you!
