“Gifts of God for the People

of God”

Mondays at 7 p.m. at Trinity Church

through Nov. 4

Worship can be a powerful way to encounter the living God. Our stories intersect with God’s story as the gifts of God are celebrated and shared by the people of God. Episcopal priest Furman L. Buchanan, who Fr. Chip met this spring when he attended CREDO in Florida, explores and reflects on each element of Holy Eucharist, the service most often held on Sunday mornings. Moving from the first spoken words of the service – “Blessed be God” – to the last phrase – “Thanks be to God” – Buchanan explains the theological and scriptural elements of the service, helping newcomers and longtime members alike gain a deeper understanding of this gift of God. Our remaining sessions, all held in the Guild Room at Trinity Church at 7 p.m., are as follows: Mon., Oct. 14 Creed through Peace “Believing, Praying, Confessing” Mon., Oct. 21 The Holy Communion “The Great Thanksgiving” Mon., Oct. 28 Breaking of the Bread “Christ our Passover, Sacrificed for Us” Mon., Nov. 4 Go Forth in Peace “The Body of Christ, the Bread of Heaven”
