upcoming community activities
Updated: 16 June 2021
Weekly Sunday Scripture Reflection series: As a reminder, please know that every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m., on Zoom, a group of inquiring Christians gather for a time of Scripture reflection and discussion. We will continue to gather via Zoom throughout the summer months; and at the end of the summer, we will consider how our format will continue after Labor Day. We invite you to join our group to add your thoughts, or simply to listen in and be part of our sacred time together. Zoom information can be obtained by asking to be part of our weekly Scripture Reflection email group or visiting our church website: https://tinyurl.com/StFrancis-CommunityJournal
Please contact the church office or Pat Perkins for more details.
