Are you interested in volunteering at General Convention?

The 79th meeting of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church takes place in Austin, Texas, July 5-13, and the Diocese of Texas welcomes people from around the church who want to volunteer.  Many volunteers are needed for tasks associated with General Convention and the Triennial meeting of the Episcopal Church Women, which takes place at the same time.  People may volunteer for as little as a half a day or for multiple shifts over many days. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available for many skills and talents.

To register as a volunteer and select shifts that suit your interest and availability, please go to https://79genconvepiscopalchurch2018volreg.my-trs.com/

Dauthers of the King Spring Festival

Members of Daughters of the King chapters across the diocese are invited to a Spring Festival on Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Grace Episcopal Church, 715 Millington Street in Winfield.

More details will be available in coming weeks.

Lector Training

Remember that during the pledge drive this year, we were told that we were being "called to active duty."

Here is one of those opportunities for you. Have you ever been interested in being a lector? Lectors read the Bible lessons and sometimes lead reading of the Psalm as a part of the liturgy.

On March 18, after the 10:30am service, we will be training lectors. This will include lectors who have served in the past and are interested in resuming reading, present lectors and anyone who may be interested in starting to read.

McAlister's Fundraiser

We have a fundraiser scheduled for Tuesday, April 24th at McAlister’s. There have been several changes since our last fundraiser.

You must now say you are with St. David’s when placing your order, for us to get credit for it. Also, they are requiring us to have at least 21 people signed up to attend, by a certain date, or they will cancel our event. The link to sign up is from GroupRaise:  https://tinyurl.com/ycygczvt

Please sign up today so we aren’t canceled.  It is not a problem, if you sign up and then aren’t able to attend. Please sign up and help St. David’s Outreach have another successful McAlister's night.  Thanks to all who support our efforts.
