Intentional Small Groups: The Episcopal Church continues to offer new resources for congregations interested in following the Way of Love as a way of life by starting small group ministries. New resources include the Building an Intentional Small Group Ministry information packet, an infographic, video compilations, and social media graphics. These resources are available at iam.ec/smallgroups.Inspired by the foundation laid by Arlin J. Rothauge’s work and booklet, Making Small Groups Effective, the Building Intentional Small Groups information packet can help congregations answer the questions of why, what, when, and how of Small Group Ministry. Written and curated by formation and evangelism leaders across the church, the packet is an instructional tool to help churches as they begin or re-start an intentional faith-based small group ministry. This is not a curriculum, but instead a tool to help adapt existing curricula and other formation resources for a small group context.
Vicar’s Note: Thank you all for coming out to our joint worship service and BBQ last week. I thought it was an inspiring and uplifting event for us to have in-person fellowship after being isolated in the past few months.
Our parish will get underway with a couple of major capital projects in the next few months. We wanted to let everyone know that your parish leadership team members have worked hard and did their due diligence prior to giving approval to these church projects. We will keep you posted as the work starts to commence this week. Again, for all your donations and financial contributions, may God continue to shower you with His grace and blessings. On behalf of parish council members, Thank you so very much! The Venerable Louie Engnan, Vicar.
