Taize Service

Taize Service

A Taizé service is held at St. Francis on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 6:00 pm. This form of worship is intended to allow peoples of all faith to come together in prayer and meditation.

“It is a time to rest in God, to let the words listened to and sung penetrate one’s being” says Brother John, a Taizé monk. There is no preaching, no teaching. There is just an elegantly simple service: short chants repeated over and over in the dark along with short Scripture readings and times of silence.

Taizé prayer began at a monastic community in Taizé, France, founded in the 1940's by a Swiss man known as Brother Roger. 

Please join us and bring a friend. We can all use some time to rest in God.

Consecration Sunday

On this Sunday we consecrate ourselves to being good stewards of our Church. Stewardship is an indispensable part of being a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a faith-based lifestyle which recognizes God’s ownership of all things – including our time, abilities and financial resources. We come together this day to prayerfully discern how each us us can make use of our time, out talents, and our treasures over the next year.

Episcopal 101

Two intensive sessions for the Episcopal 101 class have been scheduled (both sessions constitute one class) in October. The dates are October 20th and 27th from 10 am until 1 pm. This class is designed for those wishing to be confirmed (12-18 years of age) or received into the Episcopal Church (adults who have been baptized). If it is your desire to join St. Francis and the Episcopal Church then taking this class is necessary but it will be fun! If you have been baptized (with water and in the name of the Trinity) and are an adult (18 or older) you may be received into the church. If you are a child (12-18) who was baptized as an infant/child then you will need to be confirmed. This class is also open to anyone wanting to be baptized or just as a refresher for those who have been in the Episcopal Church for some time. Once this class is taken we will go to The Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta on December 9th after the 11:15 am service. The Bishop will there receive, confirm, or baptize you as is appropriate.

Newcomers Lunch

Join us on Sunday, October 14, as we gather together to share a meal of fellowship and welcome, following the 11:15 service. We would love for you to come and welcome our new Franciscans. Bring a covered dish if you are able. If you are a team leader, be prepared to say a few words about your ministry area? Our new members are probably looking for a way to plug in and your ministry area may be just what they are looking for.

Parish Work Day

Come and join in. All hands are appreciated for jobs both big and small. A list of jobs is posted outside the parish hall and you can sign-up for the ones of your choice. 

The parish will provide lunch for all workers. Historically, work days were well-supported at St. Francis and we are now sorely in need of reviving the spirit of “many hands make light work”.  Please come ... working together is inspiring and fun!
