Meet Our Missionaries

This Sunday, Daniel & Rachel Aytes, our missionaries in China, are visiting St. Francis. Please join us in the Parish Hall for coffee at 9:15, and a presentation by them from 9:30 to approximately 10:15. Some of you already know the Aytes and will be happy to welcome them back to St. Francis. If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet them, please plan to join us, to hear about the work they’re doing in China and what living there is like for them and their children.

Angel Tree Meeting

St Francis has been involved in Angel Tree for about 10 years, and we have held a party for 9 of those years. This is a ministry that touches the hearts of so many. The Angel Tree committee plans and executes the party, comes up with ideas of gifts for the caregivers, and we deliver gifts to those children who are unable to attend. There is a lot of planning and work, but it is so much fun! Our first meeting will be this Sunday in the Commons Room at the Parish house after the 10:30 service. We need people of all ages and talents. Please join us to see if this is a ministry you would be interested in.


Thank you to all who helped in the many ways of serving with Welcome Table on July 27! There were 192 people, including the volunteers, in attendance. We served 213 plates of food. It was a record setting night for serving green beans (thanks to great seasoning by Sherry Campbell). Fourteen #10 cans of green beans were served and none were left.
