Pastoral Care for January
Beverly Gosnell 336-760-3621
Carolyn Myracle 336-945-3803
It comes with great sadness to announce the passing of St. Anne’s longtime organist and Music Director, Dr. John Storm Mueller. A Celebration of Life of this extraordinary musical monument of Winston Salem will be held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Saturday, January 26, at 2 pm.
Pastoral Care has begun a ministry of providing home communions to those members who aren’t able to get to church services. At present, several members of Pastoral Care take communion to folks at their homes and assisted living facilities. We need more people to become part of this ministry. Ginny will plan to do the training at the January Pastoral Care meeting on Sunday, the 27th after the 11A service at 12:30PM. If you’d like to become part of this ministry, please add your name and contact information to the signup sheet which is at the Pastoral Care Table by the Vestry Room. Thank you!
Dinner Groups are starting again. Please consider being 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. The groups usually include 7-8 people, hosted by members of the group. Each person or couple 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. If you would like to participate, a signup sheet will be in the Parish Hall by the Vestry Bulletin Board . Any questions, please contact Beverly Gosnell at 336—760-3621 or by e:mail to [email protected]
CHAMBER MUSIC AT ST. ANNE’S
On February 1 at 7:30pm. St. Anne’s is hosting an evening of wind chamber music by members of the Piedmont Wind Symphony (including our very own Mark!). The concert is free but a $10 donation is suggested.
Seniors Group Coming Soon. As part of adult formation, St. Anne’s will begin a Seniors Group to provide opportunities to socialize, learn, grow, experience, taste, play, share and in general, have fun. To help with planning, there will be an information meeting on Sunday, February 3 (one at 10:00 and one at 12:30). If you think you might be interested in joining this new, fun group, please complete the survey using the link in this announcement and drop it in the basket in the narthex labeled “Seniors Group.” There will also be surveys available after services on January 20 and 27. Questions: Barbara Campbell [email protected] (336) 413-6116 or Judie Holcomb-Pack [email protected] (336) 971-1004.

The Bread and Blessings and Outreach Committees are sponsoring a fundraiser on Saturday, February 23, from 4:30 to 7:30 pm. We have chosen Piedmont Freedom Schools as the recipient of the funds we raise. The six-week Freedom School curriculum is designed to address the loss of reading proficiency that usually occurs over summer break from public school, and to encourage feelings of self worth and empowerment. The program is rooted in the civil rights movement. The curriculum for our local Freedom Schools includes daily reading, games, songs and activities that empower children (referred to as scholars), and free lunches and snacks for the scholars. Last summer there were 3 different Freedom Schools in Forsyth County. The scholars attend for free, but there are significant costs to provide training for Servant Leader Interns, books and supplies for the scholars, and costs of administration. We hope to raise enough to sponsor the cost of a least one Freedom School Scholar.
There will be food, Bingo, and a silent auction at the fundraiser. Please mark your calendar now for this worthwhile event. More information about Freedom Schools will be forthcoming!
To make our St. Anne’s Freedom Schools fundraiser a success we are asking for Bingo Prizes and Silent Auction gifts. If you or someone you know would give their talent—-for example banjo lesson or photo session or maybe cooking lesson—-or if you have a vacation few days to give away —for our silent auction —-would you please contact Sandy Sheldon 336 408-1977. A box for Prizes for Bingo will be in Parish Hall. All donations are needed before Feb 23 event. Thanks so much. Bread and Blessings Committee.

Union: A Musical
Union will be presented at Stevens Center.
In the spring of 1968, the sanitation workers of Memphis, Tennessee, went on strike. This strike, occasioned both by the tragic deaths of two of their fellow workers, Echol Cole and Robert Walker, and the desperate need for humane working conditions, began merely as a local matter. And yet, in ways that few could have foreseen, it became a defining moment in the ongoing American struggle toward a more perfect union.
