Join us Tonight for Dinner!

We will gather at 5:30 p.m. in Haywood Duke for a Lenten dinner of soup, bread, and salad with options for children. Then join us for prayer practices such as a labyrinth, a prayer wall, and Anglican rosary making. There will also be fun options for children, including sand art prayer jars and a long coloring banner for prayers. $25 per family or $10 per person. To prepay, select "fellowship dinner's" under the Fund dropdown list on the Give page, here.

New Exterior Lighting

Late last year Vestry approved a previously deferred project for lighting the Fisher Avenue elevation of the sanctuary building including the heavily used rear entrance. The area previously was completely dark in the evening except for a couple of lampposts and the rear door sconces. Our exterior lighting contractor, Southern Lights Outdoor Lighting & Audio, undertook and completed the project in March. Vestry prioritized this extension of exterior lighting as both an aesthetic and security illumination of this large section of the grounds, which includes three doorways and the McClendon & Cantner-Heard gardens. Please note this new lighting the next time you walk or drive by after dark!
