Bible Study


 

John's Letters Bible Study

When we strip away what is superficial, cultural or traditional, what is the essence of genuine Christianity? What qualities and beliefs must be present in a living and life-changing faith? John's letters focus on the three most important aspects of the Christian life. With power and simplicity, he helps us focus out attention on what really matters- both now and for eternity. This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and an extra "Now or Later" section in each study.

This study will meets on Thursdays at 6 pm and is offered in-person and virtually by clicking here.

Free Concert


 

The "CLAM Jam" is coming to St. Ann's on Sunday, Oct. 30, at 1 pm. This will be a concert of both religious and secular music featuring our Sunday "music maids" Charlene Donohue (C), Lisa Longe (L), along with Deacon Alan Hart (A) and Deacon MaryCarol Hart (M) all performing -- sometimes individually or as duos or trios, sometimes all four at once -- as we use this as a great opportunity to try out our church's new and improved sound system. Please come and celebrate this event with us. And by all means, feel free to sing along with us! You will hear some praise tunes, some folk and rock songs, and some surprises. We plan to have a lot of fun with this, and we would like you all to be part of that fun! We are a great family at St. Ann's. Celebrate with us as we recognize that love of our family. Remember: he or she who sings prays twice!

Have you remembered St. Ann's in your estate planning?


 

In order to conduct our programs and maintain our facilities, St. Ann's Episcopal Church conducts an annual stewardship campaign in order to meet our budget needs.  Another source of support are the gifts parishioners and friends leave the church when their life on earth comes to an end. They have been thoughtful in preparing their estate plans and wills to include St. Anns.  Many capital projects have been funded over the years by these types of gifts.

The leadership of St. Ann's would like to make our friends and parishioners aware of this giving opportunity.   

Ways to Make a Planned Gift

  • Bequests & Wills/Living Trusts
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Pooled Income Fund
  • Life Insurance & Retirement Accounts
  • Real Estate, Appreciated Property, & Tangible Personal Property
  • Charitable Lead Trust

More information about these different options has been provided by the Episcopal Church Foundation.
