Had the honor of meeting Bishop Gene Robinson following this morning’s worship service at The Chautauqua Institution in NY where he serves as the Vice President of Religion and Senior Pastor.
First time visitor today and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I look forward to returning again.
Thank you for making First Informed Communion so special. It was a beautiful and moving event for Elise and for us as cradle Episcopalian parents.
The DEE-lighful group of First Informed Communion class of 2018. The world doesn't seem so bad when you see these wondrous faces ready to live their faith (from Gabby) love love love love.....
I have my baptism records from there from 1959.
I was adopted in 1959. I cannot remember the Reverends name anymore. He was an important person in my life. He was a friend of a doctor in Houston who needed a family to adopt a baby soon to be born. This one act gave me the best possible life. I believe my parents are part of the original congregation. Joe and Betty Thurman. It’s truly a profound moment one person changed the direction of my life with help from God. Amen 🙏
I'm so thankful to all who shared in the retreat to Camp Allen this past weekend. It had everything I hoped for: nature, friends, play, laughter, learning, quiet, worship, and prayer. We're already looking forward to next year!

The real-life Saint Nicholas lived during the 4th century in ancient Turkey. He used all his money to help children in need and people who were sick or poor. Children are invited to leave their shoes outside their formation class door on December 8 to receive a sweet treat from this beloved saint and families are invited to take pictures with Saint Nicholas in the Gathering Space between services.

In these three weeks we will be looking at questions like, “Why do people believe that Christ was born 'in the deep midwinter'?” We will also explore why December 25 is so much more than “Jesus’ birthday” and why there is more to Epiphany than the visit of the (three?) wise men. Advent, too, has a deeper history and meaning than just preparing for Christmas. Come and explore with us!

December 8: Epiphany: The First and Foundational Feast
December 15: Christmas: The Incarnation
December 22: Advent: Preparing for Comings

The Transfiguration Choir and congregation will celebrate the Advent season through Scripture and song next Sunday, December 8 at 5 p.m. The choir will process throughout the church as it sings carols and anthems, and the congregation will join in singing hymns, chants, and carols accompanied by the handbells and the two organs. Childcare is provided and a reception follows this perennial favorite in Roper Hall.
