Next Sunday, June 12th, St. Philip’s will be holding our annual summer BBQ.
Doors are open at 10:00 am. The service begins at 11 am. Immediately following the service there will be a BBQ on the front lawn. We should be ready to start eating at about 12:30 pm. Hot dogs, hamburger, and buns will be provided. We hope you can join us at 11:00 am for our celebration of Holy Eucharist, but if you can’t please feel to swing by and join us for the BBQ. We would also like to encourage people to bring potluck salads, beverages or desserts for the BBQ. However, if you are unable to do so, we still invite you to stop for the chance to meet your neighbours at St. Philip’s.
The Barbecue will go on rain or shine. If it is raining, we will eat inside in the Memorial Hall.
This Sunday marks the beginning of Advent. During the four weeks before Christmas there will be a variety of opportunities to celebrate Advent at St. Philip’s. All of the Sunday services start at 11:00 am.
Advent 1 – November 30:
Our service will be at 11:00 am, with Rev. Donald preaching.
Advent 2 – December 7:
Sean Carlson, a parishioner of St. Margaret’s, will be making a presentation on the Ugandan Orphans Fund. This will take place during our 11 am Eucharist (BAS). After the service there will be a hot & cold potluck in the memorial hall. We invite you to stay for that. Hopefully Mr. Carlson will be able to speak more at that time, but if not, we can still share our thoughts, dreams and visions on how we can work with this fund.
Advent 3 – December 14:
St. Philip’s will be holding a service of Advent Lessons and Carols. Deacon Tanis and the choir have already been making their preparations for this morning.
Advent 4 – December 21:
Rev. Tanis will be preaching at this service. As part of the sermon she will be sharing some stories that will give us a glimpse into her work with Open Circle. As a deacon, Tanis helps the parish to take it’s place in the outside community. It will be exciting to listen to what has happened to Tanis, and where she has encountered God already at work in the lives of the people she meets.
Christmas Eve – December 24:
Our Christmas eve service begins at 7:30 pm. However, we invite people to arrive at 7:00 pm and join with us in a time of carol singing.
Christmas Day – December 25:
As with our Sunday services, our Christmas Day service will be held at 11:00 am. If for some reason you were able to make any of the Christmas Eve services available, we would be most happy to have you join us for Christmas morning.
As usual, we will have our Wednesday 1pm Eucharist each week during Advent. For any questions, please call 204-237-3650 line 2, or email the church at firstname.lastname@example.org
