Wonder what might have been on the table at the Last Supper? An Agape Meal before the Maundy service offered some ideas, and new tastes. Especially in the holy moments we rejoice in being together.
This group meets at the church on the second Thursday of the month at 10:30 am to have fellowship and work on knitting projects. Some members are creating prayer shawls to give away, while others are working on their own projects. In addition, members are willing to assist beginners in learning how to knit.
What is a prayer shawl? A prayer shawl is a shawl that is lovingly and prayerfully knitted or crocheted. It is blessed and given to someone who needs comforting and love. The Prayer Shawl Ministry started in 1997 with two women named Janet Bristow and Victoria A. Cole-Galo, both graduates of the Women’s Leadership Institute at the Hartford Seminary.
Our knitting group, and many others, continue to follow this ministry. The Annunciation knitting group participated with other churches in giving prayer shawls to the families of the 2010 West Virginia mine explosion.
We welcome anyone who wishes to join our ministry.
Our beautiful park-like grounds are the perfect setting for the annual parish picnic and outdoor worship.
The book list is set for the 20th year of the Annunciation Book Club. The club is open to all and if you would enjoy getting together over zoom or at a host’s home, if there is sufficient interest, to discuss a book and enjoy some treats, we would love to have you join us. We meet most months on the first Monday of the month, moving to the second Monday in holiday months. A highlight of our year is the book exchange and potluck in December. The book list and schedule can be found on the communication wall at church, on the website or in the parish news. If you have any questions, please email Deb Gallinger.

Our Social Life
Fund raising for a good cause, in this case seeking a cure for Huntington's Disease, was the occasion for an evening of laughter and an auction.
