Union Garden Blessing
Sunday, May 4, right after our
10:00 am Kids' Mass!
Union Garden is our parish vegetable garden, growing fresh veggies to supplement our Neighborhood Food Pantry.
Our Wednesday evening Eucharist downstairs in the parish hall. We discuss the gospel reading for the coming Sunday in this relaxed setting.
Mass Underground, Wednesdays at 6:15 pm.
We are a "Believe Out Loud" congregation - openly and intentionally welcoming our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender sisters and brothers into the life and ministry of the parish.
Our Welcome Statement is this:
"Jesus welcomes us to a place at God's table and draws us into friendship with God and each other. In turn, we the people of Saint Augustine's Episcopal Church reach out in welcome and friendship to our neighbors. This is who we are: people younger and older, economically struggling and comfortable, certain and skeptical, single, partnered, and married, gay, straight, and transgender, and in all the shades and colors of our common human family. We represent and celebrate the God-given diversity of southwest Michigan."
Kids' Mass is the first Sunday of the month at 10:00 am!
At Kids’ Mass, our children pre-school age on up co-preside with the priest and perform all the liturgical ministries. It’s how we recognize the full stature of children in the life and ministry of the church. While the children co-presiding this morning have practiced their ministries, we welcome and encourage all kids to join us the first Sunday of the month, as we believe children have an instinctive sense of the sacred and most learn quickly by imitating others.
Our Peace Path
is open to the public and you're welcome to walk through the church yard and read about men and women who chose peace rather than violence when facing conflict.
Look for the Peace Path in the wooded area just southeast of the church building.
The Peace Path is on tour -- find it at Pilgrim UCC in St. Joseph.
We also have a Peace Path coloring book. Pick one up at church or ask us to mail one to you.
