This Week’s Announcements


Special Thanks for our hosts at Sundae Sunday
Many thanks to our fellowship team for the lovely welcome back Sunday reception after worship last week. Children of all ages enjoyed the ice cream treats while adults delighted in the appetizers and mimosas. With 80 worshippers, it was also Holy Apostles’ best-attended Sunday since Easter! I felt personally welcomed and sensed that we are truly beginning our interim year with renewed energy! Appreciatively, Pastor Barbara

Rev. Doris Rajagopal will preach and celebrate Eucharist at next Sunday’s 10 a.m. service. Pastor Barbara will be away at her daughter’s college family weekend.
