WELCOME TO  ST. ANNE’S

The St. Anne’s family welcomes you to our worship service this morning.  If you are a visitor, please complete the Visitor Card in the book holder in front of you.  You may then drop the card in the offering or give it to one of our ushers.  Thank you for worshiping with us today.

AMOS PRESENTATION

Liz Hall, a representative from AMOS will visit St. Anne’s TODAY to further discuss how we might become involved in AMOS in the Ankeny cluster. We will have the opportunity to hear and ask questions about other AMOS success stories and future issues to be tackled.  The question posed to you… should St. Anne’s consider joining AMOS, adding our parish to the collective of groups addressing critical issues facing central Iowa?

SCHOOL SUPPLIES – DAYS OF GIVING

Project Fresh Start, supported by Ankeny Community Engagement, under the direction of Dave Kissinger provides free school supplies, back packs and other items to children in the Ankeny School District.

This is the time of year when the program provides students of Ankeny with free school supplies and back packs. Last year’s 10th annual supply distribution allowed eligible Ankeny students to receive school supplies with the help of volunteers, grants and community donations.  Approximately $18,000 is needed in donations for student supplies.

This year distribution will be Thursday and Saturday in late July. Those wishing to contribute may choose to purchase supplies from the list posted in the Fellowship area or donate money directly to Project Fresh Start c/o Community Engagement Department, 306 School street. You may also choose to donate through St. Anne’s and a group check will be sent to Project Fresh Start.

Thank you for your generosity in providing school supplies to the children of Ankeny.

FALL BIBLE STUDY

Our Fall Bible Study will begin on Wednesday, September 12 at 6:30 pm.  We will be studying Stephanie Spellers’ Radical Welcome, Embracing God, The Other, and the Spirit of Transformation.  The book is available on Amazon.  This will be a ten week study, led by Fr. Vincent.  We hope to see you there.

IOWA DIOCESE 166TH ANNUAL CONVENTION

The 166th Annual  Convention for the Episcopal Diocese of Iowa will be held on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown.  Visitors are welcome to attend convention.  Visitors must register and pay for their own meal(s). St. Anne’s will select one delegate to represent St. Anne’s at convention.  If you are interested, please see Bill West, Senior Warden.

ST.  ANNE’S MEMORIAL GARDEN FUNDRAISER

Cremation rates in Iowa are at over 40 percent.  The Ankeny, Iowa area does not have a Memorial Garden associated with a church.  St. Anne’s Episcopal Church wishes to offer the option of a sacred space for in ground interment of ashes to the public. Funds are needed for the development of the Memorial Garden to be located on the grounds of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Ankeny, Iowa.

All donations are tax deductible. Please click on the link below to donate: https://www.gofundme.com/bx974-st-annes-memorial-garden

St. Anne’s will also be collecting bottles and cans to support the building and maintenance of a Memorial Garden at St. Anne’s.  Please bring your donations of cans and bottles to St. Anne’s and place them in the box beneath the table in the Parish Hall or the black garbage can outside labeled “bottles and cans only”.  Please rinse out your bottles and cans and do not include the lids.  Thank you!
