Today we welcome the Right Reverend Doug Sparks our new Bishop. Bishop Doug will preside and preach at both the 8 and 10:15 service. After the second service is a carry in lunch.
Father Dan will be out of commission from July 26 through September 1st. Father Dan will be having surgery in early August and plan to be out for a month. Fortunately, Reverend Betty Frolick has agreed to cover the Sunday services and any pastoral concerns or funerals that may arise in this time. We want to say thank you to Reverend Betty for presiding at both services, in August, in Father Dan’s absence. God Bless You.

THE ORDER OF THE DAUGHTERS OF THE KING: We will be conducting a three-month preparation study sometime in September for any women in our church who might be interested in learning what we are all about. The National Study Guide is designed to help women prayerfully discern a call to become a member of The Order of the Daughters of the King and can also serve as a review for current members of the Order if they choose to. It is our hope that the study will develop and strengthen your relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please contact one of the following if you have an interest or any questions. Thank you.

One can give to directly to the Episcopal Disaster Relief fund via website http://www.episcopalrelief.org You can also donate through St. Alban’s and we will send a check to the Episcopal Relief and Development.
