Attention Women of St. Columba's

ECW Meeting: Tuesday, October 21 @ 6:00pm

    Connect with other women in our church! Lean in and take time out of your busy schedule to be fed by the women of our parish while we're enriching our community. We need YOU to join us in spiritual growth, joyful fellowship and meaningful outreach and in-reach.

     The first ECW meeting of the year will be held on Tuesday, October 21, at the home of Linda Reid, starting with fellowship at 6:00 pm, followed by a devotion and meeting at 7:00 pm. We’ll have time to enjoy and get to know each other more deeply, be part of a spiritual devotion, and discuss our projects for the year, including our Mother’s Event for Rainbow Village and Angel Tree.

     We will also begin thinking about a few possible projects to roll out over the next three years: parishioner name tags, Around the World Holiday Cookie Event, Mother-Daughter Tea, Lenten Devotion Book, ECW Recipe Book, Rainbow Village Children's Christmas Shopping Trip, a visit to the Cathedral’s Arts & Crafts Show and Farmer's Market, and community cultural events.

     Please RSVP to Linda Reid (email link) or sign up via sign-up genius page (click here). It's time to do something for you, for our church, and for our wider community.

Food Pantry Drive for Emmaus House

 

LoadingWe had a great food pantry response in September, collecting 413 pounds of food that was delivered to The Place of Forsyth County – thank you!!  Beyond the national statistics shared last month, there are alarming numbers in Georgia and our local community as well.  In Georgia, 18.9% of the population (1.87 million people) are food insecure, meaning that they don’t always know where they will find their next meal.  Only Mississippi and Arkansas have a higher percentage of their population in this situation.  Please continue to do what you can to help those in need by bringing in non-perishable food to donate.  We will be providing October’s donations to Emmaus House, collecting food each week leading up to the 3rd Sunday of the month (October 19th - Breakfast Sunday) which is the official collection day for the month.  Biggest needs are canned soups and vegetables, canned pasta (ravioli, beefaroni, etc, canned fruit, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, and anything that can be stored for a long period of time.  Donations can be placed in the tubs located next to the welcome table in the narthex.  Thanks again so very much for your help!!

Choral Evensong & Benediction

Sunday, September 28 @ 4:00 pm  (Eve of St. Michael & All Angels)

   As our choir begins is new season, they will sing at  Choral Evensong and Benediction on Sunday, September 28 at 4:00 pm.  This will be first vespers for the feast of St. Michael and All Angels.   

     The combined St. Columba's Choir and Choristers will sing music of Herbert Brewer, Gustav Holst, Arvo Pärt, and Daniel Hahn.  Evensong is the Church's vesper prayer giving thanks to God for the blessings of the day and the witness and fiat of St. Mary who said "yes" to God's call to become the Godbearer to the world.  Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament is a way to live into the life we as Christians celebrate in the Eucharist.  It is a way of acknowledging and giving thanks to God for the continued presence of Christ in our lives. 

     A parish reception will follow.  Let us pause in the busyness of our fall season, and in the music of one evening allow God to move and inspire us for the work we are called to do and who we are called to be in the world.
