At St. Edward the Confessor, we are community: where ALL are welcomed, ALL are fed, and ALL are loved, and we seek and serve Christ in each other by engaging with the community we live in through outreach.
This Sunday’s Readings| August 1, 2021
I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

“Love one another”–Jesus
Brothers and Sisters,
I am so excited to be returning back to the office and to worship with you all this Sunday. It has been a great time away and I have missed you all. I am most thankful for everyone and their support and work to help keep the work of the church continue while I was away. Please join us this Sunday!
I am very much looking forward to the upcoming program year and most excited to have the Rev. Chip Whitacre joining us as our Deacon! If there are programs or things you would like to see this year please let me know as we will begin planning the upcoming year soon.
Sunday Worship—IN PERSON & VIRTUAL OUTDOOR SERVICE We will plan to hold in person worship in the parking lot under the tents for the time being. Here is the link to this weeks bulletin.
I would love to come visit you. We have spent the last year and a half separated from each other and I would love to come out for a visit and catch up. I can bring communion, coffee or just me for a visit and conversation. If you would like a visit please contact me.

Air Conditioner —***UPDATE: JULY 29. I am most thankful to you all for your patience as we are navigating the complexities that is our HVAC system. Due to supply issues we are scheduled to have it installed mid-September. I realize this does not help us with the immediate heat but we have a fix on the way. This will have a price tag of approximately $45,000. If you are able to help offset the cost of the new HVAC please feel free to send a check or donation to the office and put HVAC in the memo line. We appreciate your generosity.
Parking Lot Update —***UPDATE JULY 29. The parking lot is moving forward and we are schedule to have the work start in mid-August. It will be done in phases, the first is the pouring of the concrete boarder in the front and side of the church and then the work of the asphalt will begin approximately two weeks after the concreate is poured. We are waiting for final dates to see if we need to find a different place to worship for one Sunday. As the details become clearer we will be in contact with plans for Sunday worship.
