Sunday, September 15
This Sunday, we will observe our annual parish feast day: the Feast of the Holy Cross. Each year on this day, we offer a time for folks to walk onto the chancel and view and touch a stone embedded in our altar. The stone, carved in the shape of the cross, is from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem, a site that for centuries has been the focus of veneration for Christ’s crucifixion and burial. This relic embedded in our altar helps us have a physical grounding for our prayers. It is a sacramental experience for us to come forward and offer a prayer, touch the stone, and remember. So, look for that moment at the end of the service this Sunday.
We will welcome the Rt. Rev. Bishop Lambert, the Assisting Bishop for the Diocese of Atlanta, who will preach at the 10:45 AM worship service.
Also, join us in the greeting area from 9:00 – 9:30 AM to enjoy doughnuts, fruit, coffee, and lemonade before Christian Education classes begin.
We hope you plan to be here Sunday, September 15 to observe our parish feast day!
