CHARACTERISTICS OF OUR LIFE TOGETHER
One sign of a healthy congregation is the level of participation and engagement. Annunciation's parish members take advantage of the opportunities, share in the work, development and leading of a variety of ministries. One example is the way we share the roles for leading worship. Are you interested in offering your gifts?
The Magnificat Newsletter, named for the song Mary sang, is a monthly production which provides readers with insights from the parish leaders and a comprehensive view of coming activities.
The Parish News is a snapshot of parish life in the current week; announcements and activities.
Both come to you through a protected mailing list managed by Constant Contact. You can sign up for our mailings here.
Worship binds us together as a faith community, and it is in the scripture, sacraments, and corporate prayer & song of weekly worship that we learn who and how God wants us to be.
Let us continue to say ‘Yes’ to where God is leading.
Everything we do – from the way we maintain our church building to the invitation we extend to newcomers to participate in coffee hour to offering an easy-to-use and read bulletin and website – all of these things are opportunities to demonstrate and embody the same kind of radical hospitality that Jesus extended to those around him, and that God extends to us every day.
Let us continue to say ‘Yes’ to being a congregation of hospitality.
Outreach, in the form of active service to others, is a key part of Annunciation’s identity as a church. We prepare homey, wholesome meals for PADS guests, contribute goods to the Warren Twp. food pantry, repair homes in Appalachia, pack food for starving children around the world.
Let us continue to say ‘Yes’ to serving others generously.
