An invitation to visit Jean Hauser
St. Anne’s parishioner Jean Hauser who now lives in Mocksville has invited members of the congregation to visit The Episcopal Church of the Ascension at Fork in Advance and surrounding sites of interest. The date will be determined at the convenience of those participating. If you would like to join the pastoral care committee for that outing, please speak to me at coffee hour or contact me by email at: [email protected] Chris Payden-Travers
Back door entrance door (on Oakland Dr.) is finally repaired. If you are the last person in the church, PLEASE remember to check to make sure all doors are locked.
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]
Opportunities Here and Around Town from the Outreach Committee
Interfaith Winston-Salem: Journey Talk
Sunday, February 3, 8:00-9:45 AM
Golden Corral Restaurant in the Hanes Mall Shopping Center, 180 Hanes Mall Circle
Bob Richardson will share his story with us in February. Bob’s first and longest lasting lesson in theology came from the comedian and social activist Dick Gregory, whom Bob heard lecture in 1977. Brother Greg reminded his audience that “Y’all got a big job”, and Bob has spent the intervening 40 plus years trying to unpack just what the admonition entails. That journey of discovery led him through the throes of drug addiction and alcoholism to the victory of a degree in Bible and Theology and Pastoral Ministries from Multnomah University in Portland, Oregon, to an invaluable stint as a chaplain at the Portland Rescue Mission, then onto his current gig as a Methodist minister.
NC Poor People’s Campaign
Wednesday February 6th at 3:30PM in Raleigh
Join the North Carolina Poor People’s Campaign as we return to Raleigh on . The 2019 legislative session opened on Tuesday, so we will hold a Press Conference on Halifax Mall (behind the General Assembly) that day to declare our demands for enacting just laws to end the ways that our government keeps people in poverty and yet spends billions on making wars, keeps people from their full rights as voters, keeps people from accessing the health care that is our right, fails to provide for our children the education our NC Constitution promises them, and fails to protect our environment so that our water, our air and our soil are clean.
Following the press conference, we will take letters with our demands to the leaders of the General Assembly and key committee chairs. They must know what the NC Poor People’s Campaign expects from them:
· raise the minimum wage to a Living Wage,
· expand Medicaid,
· end partisan gerrymandering,
· end racist mass incarceration,
· stop spending millions on military equipment for law enforcement,
· provide a full and equal education to all our children,
· protect us from the poisons of pipelines, coal ash ponds, wood pellet factories, and corporate livestock farms that pollute the air and water of their neighbors.
Join us on this important day, February 06th 3:30pm on Halifax Mall in Raleigh as we educate our legislators on their duties! RSVP here

Feb. 8, Friday 8:00PM
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.
