Parish Picnic

July 3rd – Independence Day Observed

You might not know this: Not only is the Fourth of July the official birthday of our nation, it is also the official birthday of the Episcopal Church. Soon after the Continental Congress declared its independence from Great Britain, the leaders of Christ Church, Philadelphia, declared their independence from the Church of England. From their act grew the Episcopal Church.

On Sunday July 3 we will combine our two later services into a 10 a.m. worship to observe Independence Day, which is an official feast day of the Episcopal Church (we will still have our regular 8 a.m. service). After the 10 a.m. service, we will have a parish potluck picnic. We will provide hotdogs and burgers and you are invited to bring side dishes and salads.

Please mark your calendars for this fun event – and invite your friends!
