ALL ARE INVITED!
The Psalm Study initiated by Charlotte will continue on most Monday mornings from 10:00 – 11:30 in the OW Library. All parishioners are warmly invited to join any session – we will be using the Psalter from the Book of Common Prayer, so just grab a Prayer Book from your shelf or a pew rack at STL or OWC and drop in: no homework required of anyone (except the volunteer session facilitator).
Quick Reaction Force, Inc. (QRF)
QRF needs our support, through donation of items needed for disaster victims in shelters, and for equipment to aid in search and rescue on disaster sites. Boxes are available in both our churches. Please take a few moments to check out the QRF web site to learn more. See www.quickreactionforceinc.org.
