Together in Faith: "This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12
It's hard to offer any improvement on these words of Jesus. They are so simple, so direct, so plain, so profound. The disciple of Jesus will always strive to be a person who loves as Jesus does.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Caleb Collins.

Pentecost is coming! Please join YOUR voice to our multilingual group reading of Acts 2:1-21! We need people of all ages with a reading knowledge of any language or dialect. The passage we will read is short (Acts 2, verses 5-11 only); your rendition need not be perfect; if you're shy, don't worry you won't be in the spotlight; and we'll even print out a translation for you. In past years, the Pentecost message has been heard in Arabic, English, French, German, Gullah, Igbo, Kikuyu, Latin, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese... We may need more than one speaker of each language -the more, the better! Please contact Jan Northcutt: firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-621-0085. Let's make a joyful noise to the Lord!
