The Mid-Week Greetings is a weekly newsletter detailing parish life at St. Anne’s parish, Lee’s Summit, MO. It is updated and published weekly.

PARISH LIFE

Cleaning Crew – we are in need of another team for our clean crew. Teams clean about once every 10 weeks. It takes about 2 hours.

Women’s Group – meeting July 15 after church. Get a cup of coffee and a snack and meet us in the family room. Please bring any ideas you have for the group. We will discuss days and times for our future meetings, our Hillcrest apartment and whatever else comes up! If you are unable to attend but have something to share please let us know.

Garden of Eatin’ – Ifyou are interested in planting one of the beds in our church garden or continuing with a plot you have planted before, let Meg know.

Display for Service Men & Women – A display is being created that will include a picture of the members of the armed forces that we pray for every week, their branch of service, where they are stationed, and how they are connected to St. Annes. A printed picture is preferred, but if you only have a digital image with no way to print it, we can find a way to make that happen. If you know any of these folks please send us the information.

Legos, Legos, Legos!!! – Next year we are going to use a new Sunday School Curriculum called Building Faith Brick by Brick. It uses Lego blocks as an extension to the week’s story. If you have any Lego blocks, mini figures, or Playmobile people that you would be willing to donate to our program please see Laura.

St. Anne’s has gone live – As you have probably heard St. Anne’s is live streaming our Sunday services. If you miss church, you can watch us on YouTube at 10:00 . A link is provided on our website and our facebook page. As we are streamlining this process, if you get a chance to watch, share some feedback with Eric or Meg.

If you have something for the mid-week greetings or the Sunday announcement sheet, please email that to laura. Please send Mid-week notices by Wed. at 9:00 am and Sunday Announcements by Sunday at 8:00am.

Cleaning Crew – Additional people are needed to help clean the church. This requires about 2 ½ hours to do the entire church and parish hall and you are scheduled approximately 6 times during the year.

Sunday SchoolTeachers for Sunday school are always needed and welcome. It is a fairly simply but crucially important ministry. There is no need to be a theological scholar. Teachers are scheduled a month at a time. Teachers are needed for 2 classes; grades 1-3 and grades 4-8. Grades 4-8 uses a curriculum published by the Episcopal church that follows the liturgy. It gives activities and guided discussion ideas. The younger class meets first with the PK-gr. 1 class to hear a story, then separates to their own classroom for discussion and activities. Materials and supplies are provided.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.—Matthew 5:9
