Church Directory Update
We are close to finalizing the print edition of our church directory and posting it online under a password protected Member Log-In section of our website. Some church members have expressed security concerns about having their personal information posted on our website.
The Website Committee has explored with our church administrator Mark Biggam the possibility of deleting entries from our online directory but keeping those entries in the print directory. What we have learned is that our ACS database does not have that flexibility without creating two separate directories (online and print), which would be cumbersome and time-consuming for Mark to maintain. The only solution is to give those who have security concerns the opportunity to opt out of our church directory altogether.
Over the next two Sundays, (Sept. 2 and 9), each bulletin will contain an “opt out” form that we invite you to complete and leave in a basket in the Narthex no later than Friday, September 14 if you do not want your personal information published in the church directory. Or, you can send an email to Mark at: [email protected] no later than September 14 indicating you do not wish to be in the directory.
In addition, for the next two Sundays, we will have a print copy of the church directory available in the Narthex for you to review and update as necessary (e.g. change of address or phone number). Please indicate your changes directly to the print edition. If everything looks good, we ask that you initial your entry. If you are not currently in the directory and want to be, let Mark know that, too.
The bottom line is this: If you do not want your personal information in the online directory, it will not appear in the print directory.
In this day and age, security concerns are a huge issue. Please know that, in consultation with our web developer, we have been assured that the password protected area of our website will be as secure as we can possibly make it. We will follow best practices for changing our password at least annually (and of course communicating it to you). Thank you for your understanding as we work to accommodate the needs and desires of our church membership.
WHERE TO FIND YOUR WORSHIP SERVICE BOOKS!
Your Hymnals, Prayer Books and LEVAS books can be found in the wire book racks under the chairs of the row in front of you. Please return the books to the same racks not the rack under the chair you are sitting on– where they can’t be seen by the next person sitting there. Parishioners who sit on the front rows will find their books in the wood racks between the chairs. Please return them to the same wood racks not the wire racks under the chair you are sitting on. Thanks!
ANNUAL WELCOME BACK BREAKFAST
Our annual Welcome Breakfast will be held on Sunday, September 9th after the 8:30A service in the Parish Hall. Thanks to all those who have signed up to bring food and drinks. We still need more food, so please remember to add your name and what you can bring to the signup sheets in the Parish Hall this Sunday, 9/2. Those bringing food are asked to do the following: bring the food ready to serve if possible, label the contents of the food and have the food at church by or before 9:30A. Any questions or problems please speak to Beverly Gosnell, Joce James or Carolyn Myracle.
WEDNESDAY POTLUCK IN SEPTEMBER
For our September Potluck on Wednesday, the 12th, Parish Life will provide the food. The supper will begin at 6:30P after the Evening Eucharist. If you can join us, please add your name to the signup sheet that will be in the Parish Hall on Sunday, September 9th so we’ll know how many to plan for.
The St. Anne’s EfM class restarts after summer break on Wednesday, September 5 at 9:00 AM. Education for Ministry is a wonderful program that offers participants a way to discover and pursue their ministry. We will start a new EfM Session for 2019 in January and we have several openings in the class for new members. Any St. Anne’s member can participate and you are welcome to attend a class on Wednesdays this fall at 9:00 AM to see how the program works. We have an open and diverse class that is very welcoming to new members. You can contact me at 336-996-1614 or [email protected] for more information.

Bike MS: Tour to Tanglewood 2018
COMING SOON— SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
We’ve formed a team for Bike MS because we want to experience a great ride and help the National MS Society fund research, advocate for change and help people with MS live their best lives. We believe in this cause. Can we count on your support?
Bike MS is a physical challenge for cyclists of every level, but it’s so much more than just a ride. The camaraderie, passion, and memories that come from sharing this experience with our team will stay with us for a lifetime. Bike MS is a weekend-long and LIFE-long opportunity to make a difference in your own life, and in the world. It’s a group effort that transcends personal accomplishment and touches the lives of the thousands of people affected by MS in our community. Join us! It’s more than a ride—it’s Bike MS.

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Join our team!
Your gift helps support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every dollar helps. Every connection matters.
DINNER GROUPS ARE BACK!
The start of the program year is upon us which means dinner groups will be starting again. If you would like to be a part of a group of St. Anne’s parishioners who get together once a month to share a meal, build community, and grow in our faith and knowledge of God, please contact Woody Clinard. Dinner groups are usually include 7-8 people, hosted by members of the group, each brings a dish to share for dinner and the groups decide which night they would like to gather. Dinner groups are an excellent way to get to know other parishioners and form friendships beyond the walls of the church. You can speak with Woody at church or email him at [email protected]
St. Anne’s Sponsors Concert Across America for the second year
Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 23 at 3 PM. Saint Anne’s Outreach committee in conjunction with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense will host a free music concert at Green Street United Methodist Church. The featured act is jazz vocalist Diana Tuffin, with our own Ginny Wilder and Bryan McFarland also performing. The concert is one hour long, and is part of a coordinated national effort to raise awareness of the tremendous loss of life caused by gun violence. At the close of the concert a collection will be taken to give to Moms Demand Action in support of their efforts in educational programming for parents and schools, distribution of free gun locks, and lobbying for common sense gun ownership laws.
Concert Across America will have an anchor concert in Parkland, Florida, site of the tragic school shooting at Margery Stoneman Douglas high school. Each concert site will sing an original song “Shine” composed by 2 students from Margery Stoneman. At our concert, Ginny will sing the song and teach the refrain to the audience. Please come out on Sunday and show your support!

August 31 – An entertaining way to benefit Second Harvest, Reynolda House lawn, 7 pm until
Join us on August 31 for “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” (2000). Loosely based on Homer’s “Odyssey,” this Coen Brothers masterpiece follows three escaped convicts in search for hidden treasure while a relentless lawman pursues them in 1930s Mississippi. Sprung from a chain gang, the trio is confronted by a series of strange characters–among them sirens, a cyclops, a KKK lynch mob, and a blind musical prophet.
Cash only. Cost is $5 per person or $20 per car; includes N.C. sales tax. Children under 5 are free. Gates open at 7 p.m. Film starts at dusk. Runtime 1:47; Rated PG-13.
Beer and wine are available for purchase and picnicking is welcomed. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome. In case of rain, films are shown in the Babcock Auditorium.
A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go to Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC.
September 9 – Interfaith Journeys, Golden Corral Restaurant in the Hanes Mall Shopping Center, An Immigrant Story, 8-9:30 am
With immigration issues at the forefront of our nation’s life, Angelica Regalado will share her perspective as a recent immigrant and as a woman of faith. Angelica is a native of Chiclayo, Peru. She came to the United States for the first time as a young adult, in 2006. A recent graduate of Wake Forest Divinity School, Angelica is now serving the Moravian Church as New and Emerging Ministries Developer, reaching out to Hispanic immigrants. Please join us at the Golden Corral Restaurant, 180 Hanes Mall Circle, in Winston-Salem. No reservations are required.
Just over a year ago, we learned that the industrial chemical GenX was found in the Cape Fear River, a major drinking water source in NC. Scientists and advocates suspect that the more our water is tested, the more we’ll find these and similar unregulated and potentially dangerous chemicals across the state.
St. Anne’s will be collecting petition postcards to show our legislators that EVERY North Carolinian has a right to clean, safe water. After years of legislative budget cuts, state agencies such as the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) have seen a decline in resources and staffing, leaving them unable to manage the growing threats from chemical dumping.
Look for more information and the postcards soon. -Outreach Committee
Food Pantries are always in need. Don’t forget to drop off canned tuna, chicken, and fruit cups into the basket in the connector for our friends at Friends Food Pantry. Thanks for supporting this local ministry and the many folks served by it.
