As we sacrifice through this season of Lent, we can bring our Alms offerings each Sunday. The Lenten Alms Project for this year are water tanks for our sister church in Hunga, Rwanda. A large tank is $800-1000; if we can help with purchase of even one, that would be great.
Don’t forget to turn your clocks back an hour this Saturday night.
When: September 11-13 [Sunday morning service will be at Camp]
Where: YWAM Camp, near Warm Lake, Cascade
What: Spending time together as a church family out in the beautiful outdoors (cabins or bring your tents or rv)
How much: For 2 nights and 5 meals - $50 per adult, $30 per child (maximum $160 per family)
The latest edition of Images of Divine Things is now available on the book table. This is a collection of Poetry, Short Stories, and images authored by our own from both Holy Trinity Anglican and Christ the Redeemer Anglican. The suggested donation of $3 covers printing costs, but feel free to take one even if you are not able to pay.
If you have food harvested from your garden at home that you want to share, bring it on Sundays. We'll have bags available for people to take home the extra.
August 16th - All Church Picnic in the evening. We will be inviting Holy Trinity Church to come join us; after the picnic the group that traveled to Rwanda will be reflecting on their time there.
August 30th - PM: Br.Ben is giving a talk in connection with the feast of Aidan. The talk will be focused on the area of fasting and prayer.
September 11-13 - All Church Family Camp
From July 14-28, we will be sending Br Ben, Joey Miller, Ted and Becki Carrico, Sally Rains, and Nate and Dani Berrian to Rwanda as representatives of Christ the Redeemer. They will be going to our home diocese of Byumba and meeting with our Sister Parish called Hunga.
This group will be bearing our gifts and blessings to Byumba and bringing back gifts and blessings from them to us. Because they are representing us as ambassadors of our community, we want to make our sending tangible by supporting this trip financially.
· We have begun a Rwandan method of fundraising. If you have skills and abilities that you are willing to donate, there will be an opportunity to give them. If you have a tangible need you would otherwise pay for, you can list that need.
· We will match skills with needs, and instead of paying for the service, donations can be made to the trip. In this way, giving is multiplied.
This year we will again be cultivating one of the community gardens around Nampa. Join us on workdays; we will be weeding, composting, seeding, and (eventually) harvesting. Contact Alex Hackett firstname.lastname@example.org or Liz King email@example.com with any questions.
WHERE: On 15th Ave So. between 5th & 6th Streets
WHEN: Wednesdays from 6-8 pm
