ADULT FORUM FOR OCTOBER

Beginning on October 11 Fr. Dale will teach about our heritage as Anglicans and Episcopalians using slides ,and the book he edited (and available in St. George’s Gift Shop), Archbishop Michael Ramsey’s The Anglican Spirit.  The book was originally published in 1991, and re-published by the Episcopal Church’s “Church Publishing” as a Seabury classic in 2004. It includes a Foreword by the present archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. The schedule will be:

October 11: Our Anglican Heritage, Beginnings (book, Foreword, Preface, Chap. 9 )

October  18: English Reformation I  (book, Chapters 1 and 2)

October 25:  Missionary Outreach to America (book, Chap. 3)

November 1:  The Oxford Movement, and its effects on the Episcopal Church (Chapter 4)

November 8: A True Anglican: F. D. Maurice  (Chapter 5)

November 15: Two Great English Leaders: Charles Gore and William Temple (Chapters 6,7)

November 22: Anglicanism Since WWII (Chapter 8)

November 29: Where we are Today in the Episcopal Church

A further note: our Parish Library holds many wonderful classics for Episcopalians, and it would reward anyone to look over our collection.  There is no better introduction to the Christian Faith than Bishop N. T. Wright’s Simply Christian. C. S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity is a great classic from WWII.  A third book is Alister McGrath’s I Believe. The latter two authors are from Northern Ireland.

NEXT SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11 IS UNITED THANK OFFERING INGATHERING (UTO). Please remember to bring your blue envelope to church next Sunday.

THE ORDER OF ST. LUKE will be offering Healing Prayers classes this Fall.  There will be an informational meeting on Sunday, Oct. 18 after the 10:30 service in the Conference Room.  Please contact Gail Heiting 394-1852 if you are interested but unable to attend the meeting.

Youth Events for Summer 2009

Today, June 21 – Concert in the park This is a fundraiser for the youth. All proceeds from the concessions sold on this evening will be donated to them. We are asked to be at the city park in the center of Freeburg at 6:30 pm and to remain until the evening concert is over which is approximately 9:00. Anyone from 6th grade up is asked to be there, if possible. There are signs to direct you to the concert.

June 28 SRT (Silver Ring Thing) This event is designed for youth and their parents. It will begin at 2:30 pm until approximately 5:00 pm, and will be held at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, Freeburg. The idea of the program is to encourage teens to remain celibate and follow God’s teachings in this very difficult world in which we live. There is a session for parents which discusses encouragement and understanding of what our children are facing each day that we may not even realize. Please come and share this experience together.

JULY 3-5, 2009- FLOAT TRIP We will be traveling to RiverView Ranch in Bourbon, MO where we will camp. From there we will be transported to the floating destination and return to RiverView Ranch at the end of the trip. The float will be on Saturday and we will return Sunday afternoon to Belleville. On Saturday evening if anyone is interested in seeing fireworks we will travel to nearby Sullivan for a spectacular show. All families are encouraged to come. We will be floating in rafts so there is much less probability of tipping. The cost per person is $55 which includes camping, floating and food for the weekend.
