Belonging Study – April to May 2018

The Worship Team has created a Belonging Study Guide that would help all of us travel the distance between Easter and Pentecost while at the same time, learning about our history and our faith. On the day of Pentecost (this year its May 20th), we will have the opportunity to re-affirm our baptismal vows, and those who have not yet become formal members of St. Aidan’s will have the opportunity to do so. Belonging Study Booklets are available in the church library and on our website as Sunday, April 8.

Belonging Discussion Groups will meet THREE times during the journey; Mondays from 1:30-3 pm and 7-8:30 pm (April 30, May 7, May 14). Sunday sermons will focus on the weekly themes.

Library Resources: Some of the questions you have pondered about in the first week of the study may prompt you to explore further — if not now, then in the future.  We have an insert with names of some books(click here)  that might interest you included with this week’s Life and Works and Bulletin.  The books will be on the display trolley in the Great Hall during the whole of Pentecost.  Hang on to the insert so you’ll know where to look for them on the shelves. You can also place holds on any book! ~ Louise Booth, Church Librarian

Thanks to St. Aidan’s Coldest Night of the Year Walkers!

Our Place Society would like to thank all of you who participated in this year’s Coldest Night of the Year walk and fundraiser. There were over 200 walkers and together we raised over $43,000. Participants had so much fun, it was such a great community event. Mayor Helps kicked off the walk and it finished with a chili dinner sponsored by Whole Foods. We hope to see you all next year and thanks again for your strong support. Much appreciated!

Thanks to the people from St. Aidan’s who walked with and donated to the “family friendlies” team.  We received a certificate for the highest amount raised
