Family@5 – A special evening church service, especially designed for families.
Last Sunday of each month beginning September 26 @5pm
St Michael’s Parish House (across the street from the church – on the corner of Hope and Church Streets)
We know how hard it is for moms and dads to juggle work, school, sports, recitals and all the demands on young families with the parent’s desires to still provide Christian Education for their children.
And we know what it feels like to have young kids who wriggle, squirm and sometimes scream their way through a church service! We’ve been there (or are still there)!
We love children at all our services! Just as they are!
But, parents have said they would really like a service designed with children in mind. Prayers and a sermon on their level. Guitars and camp songs, costumes, games, activities, dancing and being able to move!
It has to be scheduled after all the games and practices on the weekend. We understand!
And also, a meal will be provided! No food prep or dishes to do that night
The Acts of the Apostles
Sundays @ 11:30 am beginning October 10, 2021
The mysterious presence of Jesus haunts the whole story of Acts. Jesus is announced as King and Lord, not as an increasingly distant memory but as a living and powerful reality, a person who can be known and loved, obeyed and followed, a person who continues to act within the real world. Join us as we study The Acts of the Apostles to see how Jesus’ acts through the apostles inform and empower our acts today. We will be using C. K. Robertson’s book on the Acts as our class guide.

Viridissima: The Life and Music of Hildegard von Bingen
Lecture and Recital
Sunday, October 17, 2021, 12:00 noon, in the Sanctuary
On October 17th at noon, St. Michael’s will be hosting a lecture and recital, Viridissima: The Life and Music of Hildegard von Bingen, presented by our new Director of Music Nicholas Rocha.
Hildegard (1098-1179) was a prominent medieval mystic and abbess, who overcame tremendous societal barriers in order to speak truth to power. Through the latter half of her life, Hildegard wrote not only several volumes on theology, medicine, and science, but also immortalized many of her prophetic visions in the form of chants she composed. These originally-conceived works remain timelessly beautiful and inspiring, with their evocative imagery and expressive melodies. Nicholas will be giving an overview of her life with a focus on her musical output, as well as a performance of several of her chants.
Please join us for an afternoon of medieval history and song, and to hear the story of one incredibly determined woman of faith. This lecture is open to the public and free, however donations are always welcome.
