SoCo Update for the Week of February 22, 2015

Here is what's new with the Soco Episcopal Community:

Sunday Afternoon 4:30pm Service at Opal Divine's Penn Field

We will be worshiping this week with a Liturgy of the Word from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer.  We finish the service before 5:30pm, and then folks stay, talk, maybe play some darts, and have dinner if they can.

Please invite friends, family, and neighbors.  All are welcome, no exceptions.



It's Time to Stop, Pray, Work, Love - Sign up for Lenten Video Series

So much of our stress and anxiety derives from our pollution of Time. God has given us the gift of time, and called it holy, yet we often experience time as a curse. In a series of short, daily videos over five weeks, the Brothers of SSJE invite us to recapture time as a  gift.  Join us as we wrestle with questions of time and discover how to experience the joy of the present moment.

Please sign up for this fantastic video series provided by the Society of Saint John the Evangelist.  We will also show these videos after our Sunday Services starting this Sunday and talk about them over dinner.  Please sign up here: http://ssje.org/ssje/time/


Laundry Love Kid Friendly Service Opportunity  - This Thursday February 26th at 5:30pm

The last Thursday of every month we help out friends and neighbors with laundry at SpinZone on Congress Ave. All are welcome to join, and quarters, soap, and snacks are provided. Stop by for laundry, conversation, and some fun!

Foundation Communities Brunch: Saturday February 28 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. 

Summon your inner Top Chef to join others cooking and serving brunch to 45 residents of Arbor Terrace, a complex for single adults transitioning away from homelessness. Adrian Buchanan organizes the rotating crew, which cooks at home, meets at the complex (2501 S Interstate 35 Frontage Rd, 78741) and serves the meal together to a most-grateful bunch. 


Coffee with Paul

Paul Skeith would like to set individual meetings with as people as possible to talk about what people would like the SoCo Episcopal Community to become and how we can have the biggest positive impact on 78704.  Please email him at paul.s@socoepiscopal.org to set up a time to meet.


Donations to the Soco Episcopal Community

We have budgeted $5000 for the Community's expenses for 2015.  Paul Skeith is not paid for his work with the Community, but we need be able to pay for our monthly supply priest and our expenses.  If you would like to make a donation, all donations to the SoCo Community are being held in a separate fund by St. David's Episcopal Church and are tax deductible.  To make a donation online, please click https://socoepiscopal.nationbuilder.com/give
