Contemplative Worship Service
Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 6:30 pm
Following a hiatus for July 4th celebrations, our next Contemplative Worship Service will be held on Tuesday, August 1st at St. John’s. Bathed in soft candlelight, participants gather for a time of silent reflection, scripture reading, responsive prayer, and the singing of simple melodic songs in the Taizé, Iona, and Celtic community traditions. This is a great opportunity to experience for one’s own self to, Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). Each service lasts for approximately one hour and visitors are always welcome.
Whoever you are – and just as you are - come and be renewed.
As a thank you to all who helped make the Rummage Sale a success, please drop by for coffee or iced tea at the Rectory on Saturday, July 22 from 10-12. If you have visitors in, please know all are welcome. Dress is casual. Being able to rest after all the hard work will be a nice way to spend a Saturdaymorning and to meet other folks. The Rectory is two driveways up 194S from the church, 5198 NC Highway 194S, 828-863-5198. Contact Pan McCaslin for any questions or if you need a ride.
