- Sunday, April 22, Acolyte Workshop, Part I, the Rev'd Gina Campbell (from Wesley Theological Seminary) will lead "An Exploration of Presence, Movement, Embodiment, and Voice" for the Acolyte Guild after Coffee Hour.
- Sunday, April 29, Coffee Hour Talk, Can You Hear the People Sing? Resistance and the Book of Revelation by Professor Carla Works (Wesley Theological Seminary)
- Saturday, May 5, Parish Hike, led by Nathan Vish. We will be hiking the Billy Goat Trail Section B (moderate difficulty; not the fabled section A rock scramble) combined with the C&O canal towpath. All interested in joining should gather beforehand for a picnic lunch (brown bag) at the Angler's Inn parking and picnic area. The picnic will commence at 12 PM, with hikers departing afterwards. All, hiking or not, are welcome to join for the picnic. Walking the towpath is an option for those who are interested in a more flexible option and is a delight with strollers, etc. Hikers will be heading south using the Billy Goat B trail and will then loop back to the parking area (Angler's) on the towpath. Total distance for hikers will be ~3 miles. A map of the trails is available here.

- Community Groups, coming your way, to your town, Fall 2018! We are planning, for those interested, small groups for fellowship and study: a 4-week experience, a shared meal, and a guided study of Scripture. These will be geographically-based: clusters of parishioners, who live near one another.
Prayers of the People
These prayers are those found in the Book of Common Prayer; broad expressions of hope and concern for the Church, the world, our local community, those who suffer, and the departed. We have expanded the intention for leadership of the Church to reflect the Universal Church. If you have any particular intentions on your heart, please let clergy or staff know, and we will see about incorporating them.
