THE ST. B'S WEEKLY
CONNECTING WHO WE ARE
TO WHAT WE DO
June 22, 2022, after Pentecost
Our inaugural Middle School Adventure brought ten 7th and 8th graders and four adults together to travel across Tennessee canoeing, exploring and playing together. Special thanks to Gretchen Abernathy, Drew Sloss and Matt Poag who volunteered to join in the fun.
Third Sunday After Pentecost
Holy Eucharist, 9:30 a.m.
This Sunday, join us for Holy Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. The service will be live-streamed and available on-demand later in the morning. Masks are optional at both services. KN95 masks are available for anyone who would like to wear one.
For Families: The nursery will open at 9:15 a.m. for ages 0–3 years, and the service will include a children's homily for 3 yrs–6th grade.
PRAYER DESK RETURNS
St. Bartholomew's is a praying people. We might say that prayer — in particular praying for others — runs in our veins. The pandemic closed down one of St. B's long standing means of intercession, the prayer desk. Which is why we are so very pleased that it will return this Sunday, June 26 with a few changes. Two intercessors will be in the narthex at one of the benches to pray with individuals, friends, couples, and families after receiving communion.
Currently, we are seeking to re-build our prayer desk team. For those feeling called or the nudge to pray with and for others, please email Pam MacArthur.
RECTOR SEARCH FOCUS GROUPS
As part of the rector search process, the committee is hosting focus groups to learn more about who we are and what we need in our next rector. Each group will be 8 to 10 people. Thank you to all those who have already participated. One session remains this Sunday, June 26 at 11 a.m. A separate session for grades 7–12 will be held on Sunday, June 26 at 11 a.m. in the youth room. Please sign up >>>here. Please note that sign ups now close tomorrow, Thursday, June 23. Questions? email firstname.lastname@example.org.

FOR THE RECTOR SEARCH
Almighty God, giver of every good gift; look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for St. Bartholomew’s that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
