New to St. Francis?

If you are new to the Episcopal Church, our style of worship may not be familiar. We are a Protestant church that has a high view of both sacrament and liturgy, which may be very familiar to those coming from other liturgical traditions.

Eucharist and Baptism for us are at the very heart of what we believe about God and our relationship to God.

For Thursday, January 19, 2017

From Fr. Mark 

1) This Sunday at 2:00PM we are invited to join with our friends at Rejoice Lutheran Church at 1025 Five Ricks Rd in Gering as they host a short community ecumenical prayer service. I will be attending, and hope many of you will join me.  

 

2) At that same time, also 2PM this Sunday, Youth Group will meet in the youth room here at St. Francis with leaders Dael and Gretchen for a movie and conversation. 

 

3) Don’t forget our first Bunco this Friday evening 6-8PM in the parish hall! Berlin Moreno is our energetic leader and she is super psyched and I know it will be a great time. Fellowship, games, snacks, and prizes! What could be better? Don’t miss this fun event!

 

4) Parish Annual Meeting Sunday, January 29th at 11:30AM. This is a church potluck — where every family is expected to attend (see what I did there?) and every family is asked to bring a favorite food dish. Casseroles and soups and salads and desserts are the standard fare, plus — wait for it — deviled eggs! How could life get any better? Two things I am certain of — no, it will not be boring, and yes, the food will be delicious!

Bible Reading for today

Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
