Current Events


Every Member Canvass Continues: Last week a letter was sent to all parishioners detailing the Canvass. Estimate of Giving cards were enclosed with return envelopes and the Step-Up Chart showing all the levels of giving by members of Holy Family. If you did not receive the mailing, call Christie Beiring in the church office. The dedication of Estimate of Giving Cards will be on Sunday November 21 in both services. 

To date, 16 cards have been received totaling $82,140.00. See the Step Up Chart and the giving thermometer in the gallery at the nave entrance for graphic illustrations of how the canvass is coming along.   G. Yandell

Sunday Outdoor ‘Coffee Hour’ a Success: Many of you enjoyed refreshment and conversation with each other and Bishop Wright after the 10:30 service October 31. Many thanks to Melinda Edwards for putting it together. This was the first Sunday in 19 months we’ve been able to gather this way. If any of you have an urge to help with future ‘coffee moments’, let me know. G. Yandell

Quarterly Contribution Statements: Statements are ready and will be available in the church for a short time. Please go by and pick yours up to help save on postage.

Holy Family Book Club: Just a reminder we finished our discussion about the book, American Dirt (a “must-read”), so we will not meet on Wednesday, November 10, as originally planned. Do mark your calendars for our winter book club gathering which begins on Wednesday, January 26, at 6 pm in the Parish Hall. We will discuss Jim Wallis’s highly acclaimed book, America’s Original Sin. Wallis is the founder of Sojourners in Washington, DC and is a thought leader for religion in the US and beyond. His book addresses racism and white privilege in a Christian context. We hope you can join us for what we expect to be a thought-provoking read and discussion. Terry Franzen
