Ministry Fair & Rally Day
I hope this short note finds you well. I have been traveling frequently this summer for work and for refreshment, and I know many of you have as well. Thanks be to God for opportunities to relax and visit friends and family!
Many Episcopal churches choose a fall Sunday to (1) gather the community after the end of summer vacations, (2) put their best foot forward to visitors and newcomers, and (3) get members connected with new ministries.
So wherever you're reading this, we invite you to mark your calendars for a ministry fair and rally day on September 21. Instead of a rector's forum, we'll turn the atrium and other parts of St. Paul's into an open-house space for fun, fellowship, and discovery (or rediscovery) of the many opportunities to seek and serve in our parish church (and beyond it).
As for those visitors and newcomers, we hope to increase their numbers on rally day by all of us inviting friends to church on September 21. That's a scary proposition for many--but it doesn't need to be! Stay tuned for ideas and examples of how to describe our life at St. Paul's and how to share it with others through invitation.
