St. Michael’s Episcopal Church Newsletter for September 2019

The scripture readings for September from Luke continue the parables that Jesus used in his teaching. The Old Testament readings continue to explore themes from the great literature of the prophets. Epistle readings from Philemon and Timothy remind us of the importance of intercessory prayer.

10:00 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II

First Sunday lunch will follow the service. This Sunday is special because we will host a group of around 30 from an Episcopal church in Austin that will have been on retreat at nearby Wellspring Center. Please make our visitors feel welcome.

Old 300 barbecue will be provided for members and guests. Several members have already committed to bring potato salad, beans, green salad, mac and cheese, and desserts. Parishioners are invited to bring any side dish they choose. Tea and ice are already on site.
