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.

BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING

For several years St. Anne’s has used the Consecration Sunday format for our annual pledge campaign.  This year we will be using a new program, “Blessed to be a Blessing, Stewardship Reflection Series.”  The concluding celebration will be on Sunday, November 18 during and after the 10:00 a.m. service.

Over the next few weeks we will hear members of our congregation share a series of outstanding sermons which explore stewardship as a response to the blessing of who we are and all we have received.  Over the next few weeks you will be receiving information about the program through mailings and emails.

The annual pledge campaign can be an opportunity to bless God and bless the community from the offerings of the labors of our lives.

AN EVENING WITH ONE OF THE LOST BOYS OF SUDAN

Dhoal Larjin, a member of St. Anne’s will be sharing his journey from his life as one of the Lost Boys of South Sudan to a refugee camp, education and his resettlement in Des Moines,  Dhoal’s life is a witness to the transforming power of God’s love in the midst of daily adversities and numerous atrocities.  You are invited to attend this evening at St. Mary Church Social Hall, 460 NW Washington, Avenue, Elkhart this Wednesday, September 26 at 6:30 pm.  Refreshments will be served.

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!
