"Engaging the Mysteries" at Dinner-Lecture Series
Wednesdays, May 1-29, 6:00 pm Dinner, 6:45 pm Lecture & Discussion, Parish Hall
The next dinner-lecture classes, entitled "Engaging the Mysteries," are happening on each Wednesday evening of May. This series goes more deeply into the spiritual depths and mysteries of our faith as we explore the lessons of the saints and mystics, key spiritual practices, and the ancient sacraments. It is a series for those interested in the more advanced spiritual aspects of the faith - a "Spirituality 401." Co-taught by Mo. Rebecca and Fr. Mark, the classes offer an unusual opportunity for fellowship by sharing a meal and contemplating key aspects of growing in the faith which we pursue together. Childcare is available by request to Mo. Rebecca, email@example.com. Sign up for the series by email to Mo. Rebecca, calling the church office, 858-459-3421, or on the sign up sheets after services.

Come and Re-connect at the "Instructed Eucharist"
Sunday, May 5, both 7:30 am and 10:00 am Services
This will be a great Sunday to get more familiar with the Episcopal church. It will be our second “Instructed Eucharist” which is simply an educational opportunity done in the context of worship during a service of Holy Eucharist. Teaching and commentary are offered throughout the service in real-time. The way it works is that the service is marked by several pauses in the liturgical action to explain the various parts of our rich and ancient liturgy and sacramental worship. These pauses take the place of a traditional sermon and so the service itself is of similar length as a typical worship service. To read more click HERE.
