JOIN THE SUMMER SUNDAY DISCUSSION CLASS
• Why do we call our prayer book the 1979 Book of Common Prayer?
• Why does it seem like we only use a small part of this big book?
• How might a book help us grow in our prayer life and our walk in the Jesus Movement?
If you are new to the Episcopal Church and/or you are curious about our Book of Common Prayer then please join The Rev. Ginny Wilder for a 3 week class called “Get to Know The Book of Common Prayer” THIS Sunday July 7, and then, July 21st.
Each week will explore the pages and history and how you can use the prayer book daily in your prayer life and study. Class starts at 9:00 am and will meet in the Library/Vestry Room off the Parish Hall.
This Sunday, July 7th, is Agape Sunday. Members of the congregation are asked to bring finger foods for coffee hour after the 10A service.

An acceptance that death is the natural and sacred end of life has emerged among the baby boom generation that insisted on natural childbirth. Over the past almost 30 years, a movement has arisen to empower individuals to return death care to the family and community. Home care of the body, a home vigil or funeral, not being embalmed, and ‘green’ burial are options that require legal and practical before-death preparation. A number of groups have formed to support natural death care, such as this one in Greensboro https://vimeo.com/220346382, and traditional funeral homes have begun to provide options and services for people in the natural death care movement.
I am interested in partnering with others to foster and support natural death care in Winston-Salem. If you are interested or have questions, contact me (Sarah Putnam) at email@example.com.
Please take less than five minutes to fill out this survey compiled by Rev. Ginny. It pertains to your worship preferences (times, part of the liturgy you favor, etc.). This valuable survey is going to help in the programming as we move closer into the 2019-2020 year.

‘IT’S THAT FLAT JESUS TIME OF YEAR!
Every summer, we request that parishioners, during their summer vacation travels, bring a “Flat Jesus” with them, color it and take a selfie, wherever they are. GInny will collect them all, and prepare a video slideshow, to show people how the Spirit is with us every where we go or have been.

Below is a list of organizations and agencies to be aware of.
If you are struggling with the recent issues of the crisis at the border, these are places in which you can offer your prayers and know that these challenges are being met:
1. Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) – provides rapid response legal services in moments of crisis including wrongful deportations, detentions and raids;
2. Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) – protects unaccompanied children who enter the US immigration system alone. They ensure that no child appears in court without an attorney;
3. Texas Civil Rights Projects – a network of lawyers representing families in communities across Texas who have been torn apart due to Trump’s immigration policies;
4. UndocuBlack Network – a multigenerational immigrant-led network that supports, engages, and empowers their communities through advocacy, resources, and organizing.
Early this past spring a group from St. Anne’s was invited to take a tour of the Church of the Ascension at Fork, in Mocksville. Jean Hauser, beloved member of St. Anne’s and former chair of the Pastoral Care Committee, has long wanted us to visit this church which she attended and where her children were baptized and confirmed. We were warmly greeted and given a well-informed tour. One of the highlights was seeing “our Daily Bread” food pantry, which provides food to several hundred clients every month. One specific need they have not been able to consistently provide is toilet paper.
We think that this would be an opportunity to help meet their need as well as our desire to thank them for their hospitality. We invite you to join us in honoring Jean by bringing donations of toilet paper to St. Anne’s for “Our Daily Bread” food pantry.
The collection will end July 21. You may put your donations in the J2A room off the Parish Hall. We will see that all donations reach the destination at the Church of the Ascension.
2nd EfM Informational Session is planned for July 21 after Service
On June 30 I found 3 interested participants for a new St Anne’s EfM class in September. If your missed the first session There will be a second session for everyone interested in EfM on July 21 when I hope to find 3 more participants so we can establish a class in September. Please stop by the Vestry room on July 21 and/or touch base with me anytime in the coming weeks (contact information below). I plan to have EfM Registration at St, Anne’s at 6:30 PM on Wednesday August 21 so we can gather registration information from participants and get tuition ready to send to Sewanee for a class to begin around September 18th. On August 21 we will also organize the class as to time and dates. We will need several weeks for Sewanee to send the books for registered participants. Sewanee has changed the way they collect tuition so we need to go over those new rules and gather information from class members to get the class organized.
Education for Ministry is a small group program administered by the University of the South (Sewanee). Through study, prayer and reflection EfM helps participants move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God’s kingdom as they better apprehend the connections between their faith and their lives. EfM is a four-year program that participants commit to one year at a time.
I have been a mentor/EfM class administrator for 20 years. My Contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org, 336-996-1614 (home), 336-624-6453 (cell).
Please let me know about interest in EfM participation in the coming weeks!!.
