1. From the St. Michael’s South Altar Launch Team (SALT):
We are applying to hold weekly services in the auditorium of Covington Middle School (very close to the intersection of Brodie and Wm. Cannon) starting Sunday, March 8. Eucharist would be at 9:00 followed by Christian education time. The Launch Team would have a “dress rehearsal” the week before, so our last Sunday at St. Michael’s-360 would be Feb. 22. Please come Feb. 22 and pray for the Launch Team, that our mission to south Austin may bear much fruit. South Austin needs a worshiping family that knows the risen Lord Jesus and makes him known through the Eucharistic mystery of his Body and Blood, proclamation of the Word that takes the bible seriously but not always literally, and actions that witness to the love, mercy, and justice of his coming kingdom.
2. From the Rev. Paul Johnson:
Church of the Cross, the new Episcopal Church being born in the Lake Travis area, begins its worship life Sunday, February 15. This new community will be gathering for weekly worship at 10:00 AM on Sundays at Serene Hills Elementary School, 3301 Serene Hills Dr. in Lakeway. Here’s how you can help as the Episcopal Church of the Cross gets started:
- Keep us in your prayers, praying always that the Lord’s will be done through this new people; that God open doors and hearts; and that God’s grace, mercy, love, hope, peace, and joy settle even more powerfully upon the Lake Travis community and all of Austin.
- Introduce us to your friends in the Lake Travis community. We love making new friends! So we invite you to make a connection. You can send an e-mail to Paul Johnson, Vicar of ECC. Mailing address is POB 340821, Austin 78734, and phone is 512.695.2803.
We are immensely grateful to all of our fellow-servants of St. Michael’s, and all who have supported Church of the Cross in the new adventure God has given us. And we will keep you in our prayers, as well.
