NATIVITY ESCAPE ROOM VIRTUAL SOCIAL NIGHT
It all began on a dark and mysterious night....Join the friends and family of the SAC community, THIS Friday, December 18, at 7:00pm via Zoom, for a fun evening of teamwork and critical thinking to solve 4 mysterious codes using ciphers, morse code, cryptograms, and other puzzles. The codes will reveal secrets behind symbols and interesting facts about the story of Jesus' birth. Who will be the first team, partners or person to crack the final code and discover the light? Will it be you? This is an intergenerational activity for ALL ages, adults, children, families, couples, singles - all are welcome and encouraged to participate. Reserve your spot today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
THE BISHOP'S APPEAL
This year’s Bishop’s Annual Appeal will benefit Historic Vernon A.M.E. Church in Tulsa, which has served over 200,000 meals in their community since March 2020 through meals and bags of groceries. Click HERE for a link to the Bishop's Appeal and what makes this Church stand out among the others. With this call to action, we have a goal of $5,000 that Saint Augustine will be trying to raise and our Vestry has agreed to match dollar for dollar. To help us achieve this goal click HERE to send a donation via tithe.ly (make sure to click on Bishop's Appeal) or you can mail in a check to Saint Augustine of Canterbury, 14700 N May Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73134 and put Bishop's Appeal in the memo line.
ECW OUTREACH FOR INFANT CRISIS CENTER
Because of Covid 19, the annual ECW outreach to the Infant Crisis Center will look a bit different this year. We will NOT be asking for gently used or new clothing, toys or baby equipment this year. Instead we are requesting donations of the following new items: Baby bottles, Sippy cups, Baby wipes, Baby liquid wash, Baby lotion, Pacifiers, Diapers size newborn to stage 6
There will be a bucket with a lid at the front door of the church to collect these items. Our staff will be checking in to make sure the items are moved inside throughout the day. If you prefer to make a donation by check, please just make your check to Saint Augustine of Canterbury and in the memo add Infant Crisis. Check out our wish list on Amazon for anyone who would like ideas on what to order:
BLESSING OF THE BABY JESUS
On the 4th Sunday of Advent, December 20, from 1:00pm to 2:30pm we will be doing a drive through Blessing of the Baby Jesus. You are encouraged and invited to bring the Baby Jesus that is part of your home nativity scene. You and your Baby Jesus will receive a special prayer and blessing from one of your priests.
The Blessing of the Bambinelli is an Italian tradition that gives a wonderful occasion to remind us that, amidst hustle and bustle, the garland and Christmas trees, the ads and the commerce, that the true meaning of Christmas celebration is the Birth of Jesus.
