Leader: Rob Wisnowski  |  w 

Day & Time: As Needed

 

Our vision is to make St. Michael’s an appealing and inviting place for growth by providing optimized and timely solutions for in-church ministries and non-regular maintenance needs of the church, properties and occupants. We also focus on enhancing parish fellowship through church wide member events and mutual accomplishment through faithful stewardship. We accomplish our work with a project management approach via distributing projects among committee members and volunteers and through mutual support and assistance. Work is authorized via a tiered cost approval and vestry approval process.

 

How to Get Involved: Show up and “Just Do It!” We welcome new, and past committee members and folks who are just interested or are called to do “tangible” faithful work. Recent completed projects:

  • Community Room acoustical sound tiles installed
  • Complete remodel of Garden Columbarium
  • Interior hallway painting
  • Organ pipe repair
  • New large preschool classroom built & outfitted

The conversation is thoughtful, genuine, without agenda and wide open  . . .  true fellowship “in the round” based upon a recurring question: What is it to be a faithful man in today’s world? How?  Relevant life experience discussed safely with a scriptural context. If you feel like you are “living with a TV set” and want to plug into some “real stuff,” YOU are not alone... the Friday Fellowship welcomes you! Interested?

Small Groups

Leader: Pat Kane  | 

Day & Time:  Determined by Group

Location: Determined by Group

 

Small groups are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, and with the congregation.  A small group ministry usually consists of 5-10 members who meet at a location of the groups' choice for a defined period of time.  Each meeting is focused on a spiritual or religious topic. The Small Group Ministry program creates an environment where parishioners can listen and be listened to in a safe place, build new and deeper personal connections, serve our community and the needs of one another, and maintain personal connections and a caring community

The Spirited Sisters cordially invite all women to join us at any time during the fall and/or Lenten Tuesday evening sessions. Or, get to know us in June, July, and August when we get-together once a month for fun, fellowship and the chance to connect or reconnect.

 

CURRENT PROGRAM : 

Women's Lenten Bible Study

Tuesday Evenings, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

All women and friends of St. Michael's are warmly welcomed to join Spirited Sisters for our Lenten Bible Study. Come when you can or follow along at home - there are plenty of books available at the church gift store, And All the Angels. We will meet in St. Michael's Library.

This study book is based upon the Revised Common Lectionary Scriptures for year B of the church year, and includes commentary and reflection on readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles. The Lord Is Our Salvation invites us to explore God’s saving and redeeming love through a study of the Scripture readings for Lent and Easter. Author Katie Z. Dawson invites us to a deeper understanding of the salvation Christ offers by exploring the various ways God restores us and our world to wholeness. Dawson opens the Scriptures to show God’s redemption at work in the men, women, and communities of the Bible. In her personal and insightful reflections, we hear a call to embrace Christ’s salvation in our lives and in the world around us during the Lenten Season. For more information please contact Sue Barnum, 847-304-6989 or Sally Smith, 847-274-4622.

LENTEN SERIES 2018
 
Somewhere in the back of your mind, you've heard of or remembered there's a bible study for women on Tuesday mornings...  
Maybe you've been before, it's been a while, and it would feel awkward to come back...
Maybe you think this group is stuck in its ways and won't feel welcoming to a newcomer...
Maybe you think you have to know how to find a book in the bible...

 

If you're thinking any of these things, please know that none of these thoughts should keep you from coming back or giving this group a try.
 
The Lenten season is a perfect time to set aside six Tuesday mornings to nurture your soul.  Come and join a great group of women who laugh, share, cry and ask questions together.
 
We gather in the library at 9:30 a.m. and end promptly at 11:00 a.m.  Kay Lewis and Nancy Seth alternate leading the group.  YOU are welcome.  Please join us for a Lenten journey.
