Schedule change-June 28-


On Sunday, June 28, the second Eucharist will be held at 9:30 am instead of 10:15 am. Why? Fr. Ed and family are leaving for a cruise vacation that afternoon, and need a little more time to get to Galveston. Normally, we would have a supply priest, but Fr. Ed will be gone the next two Sundays (one for the cruise, the other for the General Convention) and did not want to miss three Sundays in a row.

Our annual VBS will be at St. John’s this year.  We will focus on sharing, caring and celebrating our lives in Christ.  Sign up forms are in the Parlor.  Please leave your completed forms in the folder.  There are still volunteer opportunities available.  See Denise Hambrick to explore how you can help.


Children’s Chapel

Heifer Project


Rabbit Total


We have raised $ 431.43 to send to Heifer International this year.   This will buy about two-dozen rabbits for families in need.  According to Heifer International, rabbits multiply rapidly making them a low cost high yield way to help impoverished families increase their income.  Also, rabbits are easy to care for, require only simple food and produce manure that can be applied to gardens without composting, immediately boosting crop productivity.  What a great gift from our families to families around the world struggling to survive.  Thanks to all for your support.
