it's not a sporting event. Join us at Creative Ministries on August

The ramp construction is really moving along. Our prayers for
good weather have helped the workers to just keep on going! If you take
a peek you can see that some of the new drains have already been
installed along the church foundation. And not to worry, new plantings
will be put in and landscaped to beautify the outside of St. Ann's once
again. Did anyone notice how big the time capsule really is? Are you
wondering what or who is inside there? A new location for it will be in
the proximity of the flagpoles closer to Middle Road.
As summer is upon us and our activity lists grow, don't forget our services
Saturdays Taize Service at 5:00 PM

Why not come and give thanks and praise to God for all that summer brings such as warm breezes, flowers, beaches and barbeques.
During the summer months, it is inevitable that some people will be
comfortable in the air conditioning and some people will be chilled;
and that can be frustrating to all concerned. However, during the
summer months we must keep the air conditioning at a certain
temperature in order to protect the pipes in our beautiful pipe organ.
Organ pipes are very sensitive and they must be maintained at a certain
temperature to ensure they work properly; thereby avoiding costly
repairs. Your clergy, and lay servers, who are wearing layers of
vestments, also appreciate the cooler temperatures. So, for the coming
summer months, if you feel chilled in the church, please bring a light
sweater to ensure your personal comfort. Refraining from covering the
air conditioning vents in the pews is also appreciated, as it
compromises the air conditioning system itself.
Who enjoys coffee and cake? We need some volunteers for coffee hour.
All it includes is supplying cake or cookies between services and clean
the 10:00 AM service.
Please sign up for a date!
If you are new to St. Ann's, we want to make sure you are getting our

place it in the collection plate and we will add you to our database
for future communications.
