Looking for a way to get to know the folks at St. Simon’s? Bring a side dish to share and come join us for our Walk In Wednesday potluck supper! Every Wednesday evening at 6:00pm, people from the St. Simon’s community get together for a casual dinner and fellowship. Everyone is welcome!
Wednesday evenings, 7pm
Join us as Pastor Elizabeth shares insights from her studies at the Living School and learn some of the practices that awaken greater consciousness within.
Pastor Elizabeth is a participant in a two-year academic program offered by the Center for Action and Contemplation. The school, taught by Richard Rohr, Cynthia Bourgeault and James Finley, seeks to awaken participants to a more conscious union with the Holy One who permeates all of creation, and help us to have eyes to see.

We are looking for your input and ideas and we have some exciting bits to share with you as well. If your children are preschool to third grade we want to hear from you and give you our exciting news. Snacks and activities will be provided for the children and snacks for grown-ups, of course. We’re excited to meet with you on Sunday, May 28 at 11:15 (lights out at 11:45!). Looking forward to seeing you then.
The Outreach Committee is sponsoring “Christmas in June” during May/June. Most of the gift tags were distributed on last Sunday; however, there is just a handful of cards left. These cards will be available next Sunday, May 28, in case you missed the chance to select one. Your unwrapped gift should be returned to the narthex no later than Sunday, June 18. Please contact Susan Reinert or Barb Drummond with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your support.
Imagine struggling to shop and cook for yourself and having someone deliver several meals to your door. By giving just an hour and a half of your time during a day, you can be the difference–and meet some wonderful people along the way.
Meals on Wheels is part of St. Simon’s Outreach program, and June is our month. Please consider signing up to help deliver. It’s great to do with a friend or with your children. It will be greatly appreciated by both the village and those individuals on the receiving end of the meal delivery. The sign up sheet is available online and in the Narthex. Thank you, and if you have any questions please contact Sandy or Jim Ladd.
