Hymn Sing and Open House
Come tour the church and then join a singalong Sunday afternoon, September 15. The Hymn Sing at 4 p.m. in the Great Hall will feature hymns submitted by you — members of the congregation and the public. Beginning at 3 p.m., tours of the historic church and grounds — ending with apple crisp in the Great Hall — will precede the singing. To submit a hymn, email the title or first line, tune name or composer, and any dedication or memorial information you’d like, along with your name, to email@example.com before August 12. Musician Nancy Radloff will compile a booklet with information about all the hymns on the program.
New! Wednesday Worship
End your busy day with a brief, peaceful service that includes Holy Eucharist. The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection will offer these Wednesday evening services in the Great Hall from September 18 to October 30 to serve people who cannot attend Sunday services or who would like an additional weekly time for worship. Details at 315-343-3501.
The church book club, Resurrection Readers, welcomes anyone who would like to join. It typically meets at 6:30 p.m. the first Monday of the month from September to June in the parlor of the church. At the July meeting, readers choose the coming year’s selections. The first meeting of 2019-20 will be September 2. Please call 315-342-2417 to get on the email list or verify date and location of the month's meeting.
Evening prayer services, conducted by Pastor Bruce Schrader, take place in the Great Hall the last Sunday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in fall and spring months. Questions? Call 315-343-3501.
Packing for Blessings in a Backpack
Packing for this school year will begin Wednesday, September 11! Resurrection along with our partner parish, Grace Lutheran Church, provides hundreds of Oswego schoolchildren with meals and snacks for weekends and breaks during the school year. The program has grown every year. This year volunteers will pack 400 bags each week — Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m. in the Great Hall. To lend a hand, call 315-297-7802.
Salvation Army project
A church team, in coordination with Grace Lutheran, prepares and serves lunch at the Salvation Army the third Saturday of the month. If you’d like to help cook or serve, contact Diane Fernaays (315-529-5257, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sam Linn (315-342-5630, email@example.com).
Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the Rectory, a varying group meets around the dining table to discuss the readings scheduled for the next Sunday’s service. Curious? Drop in! The readings are listed for two months in advance in the church newsletter, Resurrection News.
