Thursday Announcements December 8, 2022
Last week, a parishioner received a text from someone pretending to be me and asking for gift cards.
Please know I will never ask for gift cards nor will I ever text you from a number other than my cell.
(Note the different area code on this message.)
f you ever doubt the veracity of a message received in any format (be it email, text, phone call, Facebook, etc.)
please contact me on a known channel (such as my previously published email or cell,
or the front office phone) to confirm before responding.
Midweek Eucharists have begun!
We gather in the chapel Wednesdays at six.
We're using the Rite I liturgy directly from the Book of Common Prayer during Advent.
All are welcome!
There's lots happening at Saint Francis in the next few weeks!
Please read the rest of the enews so you don't miss out.

December 17th, at 10:00am.
We will fill cookies tins (provided by the church) for our Shut-ins. Please bring 3 dozen cookies to share.
We hope that will leave 2 dozen for each of us after the tins for Shut-ins are filled.
Please bring an empty container for yourself to fill with a delicious variety of sweet treats for your holiday celebrations.
Refreshments will also be served.
Come for fun and fellowship! Any questions call Barb at 436-7767.
It’s that time of the year again, and we need your help!
We will be decorating the church after the service on December 11th.
We have jobs for everyone and the more the merrier.
Please plan on staying a little longer to help.
