IN LIEU OF COVID-19

In Lieu of the COVID-19 virus, we will be cancelling our Game Night that was scheduled for Friday the 20th, and all Sunday services on March 22nd and 29th per instructions from our Diocesan Bishop, James Hobby (Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh). Here is something that Bishop Jim has shared with his churches: “During these weeks, Church of the Ascension (Pittsburgh) has agreed to host a diocesan service of Morning Prayer online. I will be preaching this coming Sunday. The link to this service will be on the Ascension website: www.ascensionpittsburgh.org/worship-at-home and on the Ascension YouTube Channel. We will also communicate about the service on our website and social media pages.”

NEW SATURDAY MORNING BOOK STUDY–NOT MEETING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

An adult Saturday morning book study will begin on Saturday January 25th (note this change of date) from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at the Ministry Center. We’ll meet every other Saturday morning through the end of March. This study will delve into the book, The Divine Embrace by Robert Webber. It traces Christian spirituality from the ancient church to the present and then explores living out God’s story in our individual lives, as well as our life together as the church. We ask each person attending to purchase a copy of The Divine Embrace on their own. Books are available through Christianbook.com, or good used copies can be purchased through other vendors at amazon.com.  Please be careful when purchasing your book. There is another book by the same name written by Ken Gire. Make sure you purchase The Divine Embrace by Robert E. Webber. This will be an important study as we learn to live our lives in response to God’s love in today’s world. We hope you will be part of the study. Please let Deacon Phil (wheatondeacon@yahoo.com) or Father George (wheatonpriest903@gmail.com) know if you plan to attend.
