HURRICANE FLORENCE RELIEF–EPISCOPAL RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT
Please note that, while Florence is but a not-so-distant memory, there is still need for assistance in recovery of many communities of Eastern North Carolina. Keep in mind that some St. Anne’s parishioners, past and present, live in these communities that are in the process of rebuilding and getting life back to normal.
This Sunday, September 30, there will be an insert in each bulletin requesting for your contribution towards these relief efforts. You may either make your check out to ERD (Episcopal Relief and Development), or give designated cash (ask ushers for offering envelops).
In the event that you cannot make it to church this Sunday , can either download the contribution form at:
or mail your check to:
Episcopal Reiief and Development
Hurricane Florence Relief
PO Box 7058
Merrifield, VA 2216-7058
Thanks for your consideration.
The Directory is now online. Ginny will announce the password needed to access during church service or you may also call the office at 336-768-0174.
(For obvious reasons, it is not a wise idea to send this password to all of you by way of internet!)
ONLINE OUTREACH SURVEY
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO SEPTEMBER 30–PLEASE COMPLETE!
Dear St. Anne’s Member or Friend:
St. Anne’s engages in many activities related to social justice issues. We on the Outreach Committee know there is a limit to how many issues we can address. There is a limit, too, to how many activities we can do and have them bring about their desired effects.
We would like to know which issues and activities are most important to YOU and whether YOU are likely to participate in the activities. We also want your ideas for new issues or activities or approaches to “doing justice” that you would like us to consider.
Immediately below this paragraph is the link to the survey. Please click on the DONE button at the conclusion of the survey.
Thank you very much.
Your Social Outreach Committee
P.S. Do you want to do a paper survey instead? There are copies in the narthex with stamped return envelopes. Alternatively, call Faith Lockwood, and she’ll mail you one with a stamped return envelope. Her number is 336-414-0875 (leave a message with your name and address).
CONCERT ACROSS AMERICA
The Concert Across America event at Green Street UMC was a big success! Around 70 people attended, and total donations came to $1,155 dollars. The musical performances by Bryan McFarland, Diana Tuffin and jazz trio, and Ginny Wilder were well received, and we got TV coverage from WXII and Spectrum news, as well as press coverage in the Winston Salem Chronicle and Winston Salem Journal. Our own Grace Phillips was interviewed by WXII.
The donations will be presented to Moms Demand Action at their next monthly meeting. Moms Demand Action Triad region is a local education and advocacy group dedicated to ending loss of life from gun violence. Their organization helped with publicity and logistics at the concert.
Many thanks to Saint Anne’s outreach committee for sponsoring this event for the second year.
A Note from Pastoral Care
Pastoral Care has begun a transportation program for those members who, on behalf of St. Anne’s, are willing and able to provide rides to and from church for those who can’t drive themselves, and for members who provide rides for other members to do home communions and visits to hospitals and/or homes Each person who is interested in providing rides, needs to be sure his/her auto insurance policy covers them as well as others in their cars. Hoppy Elliot has compiled a form that members need to complete and leave in the church office. Anything not covered by personal insurance should be covered by St. Anne’s Insurance. A signup sheet and other information will be available at the Pastoral Care Table at the Ministry Fair on Sunday, October 7th. In the meantime, please speak with Beverly Gosnell or John Lockwood if you are interested in providing transportation or have questions.
RADICAL JESUS, RADICAL JUSTICE
This faith formation course invites participants to engage and follow the “radical Jesus of the Gospels.” A popular class offered at WFU School of Divinity, this summary course is coming to St. Anne’s in October and intends to assist parishioners in building a biblical foundation for parish-based spiritual and social justice ministry. We will explore and discern the radical (as in “root”, essence, authentic) Jesus who gives soul and sustenance for the radical love, justice and compassion of what we seek to become when we regularly pray: “Thy Kingdom Come.” Sunday mornings, October 7; October 14; October 21. 10 AM (sharp)-10: 45 a.m. in the library/vestry room. Led by the Rev. Dr. Doug Bailey.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY RESUMING
St. Anne’s Prayer Shawl ministry will meet in home of Carol Strom (1019 Kearns Ave. Ws 27106) at 6:00 pm the second Mondays of the month starting October 8. All are invited. Call Sandra Sheldon to confirm your participation. 336 408 1977.

October 9th– “The Hate You Give” by Angie Thomas
November 13th– “Thunder Dog” by Michael Hingson
December 11th– “The Gathering” by Anne Enright
If you need more info, email Karin at email@example.com
AN INVITATION FROM THE STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE TO TALK ABOUT SEX….would probably be better received and even more acceptable than an invitation to talk about money. Yet, like most, aren’t we overdue to tackle the taboo subject of money as it relates to the church?
Please join us after the 11 a.m. service on October 14 for a chance to explore our attitudes about money. To begin the session, Stewardship Committee members will be part of a “fishbowl challenge” and answer four questions publicly. The same questions will be used to generate conversations in small groups. This will not be a lengthy get together, but one designed to make us more comfortable talking about the stewardship of our time, our talent AND our treasure.
October’s Agape has been moved to the 14th. Please bring a snack to share, an open mind and the willingness to join the conversation.
Save the Date!

Opportunities Here and Around Town
from the Outreach Committee
October 2 – Triad NOW Monthly Meeting, Parkway United Church of Christ, 7-9 pm
This month’s meeting is particularly informative. The High Point Police will be there to talk about their groundbreaking program to prevent domestic violence. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so chapter members are encouraged to bring an item to be donated to the women’s shelter here in Winston-Salem. The list can be found on our webpage.
October 6 – ERA NC Alliance Annual Meeting, Parkway UCC, 2151 Silas Creek Parkway, 12 – 4 pm, hosted by Triad NOW
North Carolina could become the last needed state to ratify the ERA. This should be an informative and interesting meeting on how we achieve that goal.
October 13 – Decriminalize Immigration Teach-in and Potluck [Rescheduled], Bolton Park, 2 – 5 pm, Hosted by Sanctuary City Coalition Winston-Salem
There will be food, games, and an opportunity to learn about how immigration is criminalized and what *you* can do about it. This will be a call-to-action *with goodies* and fun for kids.
Stay tuned for more information on how to sign up to bring a dish or to help volunteer for this event.
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.
