Following our Maundy Thursday service, we will "watch" with Jesus to commemorate the night he was arrested and tried. You are invited to spend an hour at the church in prayer during the night, watching and waiting as Jesus asked his disciples to do in the Garden of Gethsemane. Ideally we would like to offer prayer continuously all night and into the early morning hours. Please sign up for a turn on the sign-up sheet in the Fireside Room or via the link on our website. - See more at: http://www.stmaryselkgrove.org/fpcal.php?month=3&year=2016&day=24#sthash.DaxIO6rM.dpuf

"Opening Hearts and Minds to All"

 

St. Mary's is a part of the Episcopal Church and is a parish congregation of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, consisting of over 70 churches.

The word Episcopal means "pertaining to Bishops," and refers to the way the church is organized into geographical dioceses containing many congregations, with bishops as their shared pastors and leaders. The Episcopal Church is a member of a worldwide association, or communion, known as the Anglican Communion. Together we join with our brothers and sisters all over the world in worshiping Jesus Christ in common prayer.

 

Our Core Values:

CommitmentWe are committed to God in Jesus Christ, to one another, and to Jesus' mission to the world.

Care—We enjoy and care for one another at St. Mary's.

CompassionWe reach out in God's compassion to the world around us, including people from all backgrounds and cultures.

Celebration—We rejoice in God's love through worship, fellowship, and special events.

 

Our Purpose:

The purpose of St. Mary's Episcopal Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.

 

Worship Services

Every weekend is a celebration at St. Mary's! We are glad to be in God's presence and with one another. We have two worship services each Sunday, each with it's own style:

 
8:00 a.m. - Holy Eucharist, Rite I
This is a quiet, traditional service without music. This is a meditative, beautiful service in the early morning.
 
 
10:00 a.m. - Holy Eucharist, Rite II
This is an upbeat service with a blend of traditional and contemporary music. Sunday School for children ages 3 to 12 begins at 10:00 a.m., meeting during the first part of the liturgy. Children then join their grown-ups to witness and receive communion.
 
Fellowship time follows each of the worship services.
 

Evening Prayer Services

We have meditative Evening Prayer services at the church building on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at 7 p.m.

 

SATURDAY EVENING (and Beyond) “COMMUNITY” SERVICE

6:00 p.m. - CommUnity

This is an exciting Saturday Evening service that uses contemporary prayers, music, videos, and skits to provide an additional sensory experience which brings the message of Jesus Christ into our present day lives. Holy Eucharist on 4th Saturday of each month.

Blessing of the Animals

Sunday, October 2nd at 4:00 pm. Bring your leashed or crated cats, dogs, bunnies, hamsters, lizards, etc. to be blessed! Pictures of animals unable to attend are also welcome! We'll gather on the lawn in front of the church. This year we will continue our tradition of building relationships with animal rescue groups and other organizations who partner with animals in a service role. We will also be collecting pet food and toys for donation to the Sacramento County Animal Shelter. This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family to join you for a fun event and see a little of what our parish is about!

Trunk or Treat

Sunday, October 30th at 3:00 pm CommUnity will hold the annual Trunk or Treat! Bring your little ghouls and goblins by to enjoy games, music, face painting, and lots of treats! Costumes are encouraged, but not required. This FREE event is open to the community, so please be sure to share this with your friends and neighbors! If you would like to host a “trunk”, please contact Julie Vice for information.

Up With People

  


You Can Bring the World Into Your Home!

Up with People (UWP) relies on the generosity and support of families all over the world. Since 1965, more than 800,000 families around the world have hosted UWP students. Host families are a big part of what makes our program unique and they provide a rich cultural learning opportunity for our participants.

As a host family, you will open your home and heart to provide a safe and welcoming environment for young people from around the world. In return you will form international friendships that can last a lifetime.

Whether you live in an urban flat, rural farmhouse, thatched hut, or suburban townhouse, you can bring the world into your home by hosting an UWP student during their international tour.

UWP host families provide:

  • A place to sleep
  • Breakfast and most dinners
  • Local transportation at the beginning and end of the day, and
  • A safe and welcoming environment for UWP students to learn about your family, community and culture….and vice versa!

UWP host families receive:

  • Two complimentary Up with People show tickets
  • An opportunity to share customs and culture, and
  • A potential new friend for life.
