St. A’s Reminder for this Sunday! and weekly announcements for June 12, 2016

StAug_logo_F jpeg

This Sunday June 12th, 10am we worship at Grace United!

What does the full body of Christ look like in Fulton Place?  From time to time,  we need to be reminded that we do not stand on our own as st. Augustine’s, but we are part of a larger network of people seeking to follow Christ in this community.  So, join us this Sunday 10am as we worship with our friends at Grace United Church!  Grace United is located just South-West of us across the street.  Feel free to park at st. A’s and walk across.  We will have newsletters and a st. A’s offering plate on hand for those who would like.  What do they do the same, what do you notice that is different?  What gifts to they specifically express that we might be weak in?  Let us pray together and for each other.
Pray also for sunny weather as we will then join in their parish picnic after the service.  Lunch is served!  There will be no other service at St. A’s at 10am, though the 8am service will continue as normal.
