Sunday School for Kids, K – 8
Sunday School will resume on Sunday, September 9, 2018. Before then, there will be a kick-off meeting for parents and interested parishioners. Our Mission is to impart a sense of belonging to, and being a valued member of, the Saint Anthony Church family. Please pray for this Ministry, that it may serve our future parish leaders! Once we begin, students are dismissed from Divine Liturgy following Holy Communion to attend classes in the small hall. Please note! Children must be potty-trained and five years old by September 1st, since this outreach is not offering a nursery environment. Parents may reconnect with students on their way to coffee hour in the large hall. No snacks are offered during class, so allergies are not anticipated. The time allotted following Communion is precious, we hope to inspire as well as to educate!
Join us Thursday mornings at 11am. Drop-ins are welcome! Currently, we’re studying the New Testament Book of Romans.

Archangel Michael Food Barrel
Organized by Forerunner Books, this Food Barrel is in the Narthex and is available to fill with non-perishable food that is distributed to the needy from our community every Saturday.
We Read Together Book Club
This Fall we will be starting a book discussion club. Our first book is titled “The Science of God – The Convergence of Scientific and Biblical Wisdom” by Gerald L. Schroeder. This book demonstrates the surprising parallels between a variety of Biblical teachings and the findings of biochemists, paleontologists, astrophysicists, and quantum physicists. In a brilliant and wide-ranging discussion of key topics that have divided science and religion—free will, the development of the universe, the origin of life, and the origin of man—Schroeder argues that the latest science and a close reading of the Bible are not just compatible but interdependent. Religious skeptics, Biblical literalists, scientists, students, and physicists alike will be riveted by Schroeder’s remarkable contribution to the raging debate between science and religion. Plan to join us! Meetings begin this September and will be led by Tom Stamos. This book is available now in our parish bookstore. To sign up send an email entitled ‘Book Club’ to firstname.lastname@example.org

Remember that there are less fortunate among us. To help provide financial assistance, donations are continuously accepted in the church office. Currently we have one family that needs help paying rent. What a wonderful opportunity to show our love for Christ by helping the needy in our community. Checks and cash donations are always accepted.
