Neighbors Helping Neighbors

NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS A GREAT SUCCESS!!!

Saturday, September 16th parish members of all ages turned out to put on a successful food drive to fill the shelves of the Sussex Food Pantry!! We were able to collect over 1300 items of food as well as cash donations!  The end of summer is often a difficult time for the families in our area and also a low time in donations to the Sussex Food Pantry. Our local Pick-n-Save and Piggly Wiggly allowed us to hand out flyers with a list of items the pantry currently needs most as people enter the grocery stores and then to collect the donations as the shoppers leave. The incredible generosity of the community was amazing as people often handed over not just one or two items, but bags of needed groceries.  God's blessings are abundant!!!!

UPDATE:    The gift boxes are all packed and ready to be loaded on a truck and taken to the reservation.  The will be given to the children of the community on December 14th.  Please keep all those involved in your prayers as we all work together to help others have a blessed Christmas.

At St. Alban’s we strive to grow in our relationship with God, both as individuals and as church. A key part of that growth is Christian formation/education. Christian formation is a lifelong process of learning, developing and growing, which includes education for both children and adults. But true Christian Formation is actually more than merely a process of learning and acquiring knowledge or information. It involves forming us as disciples of Jesus Christ and equipping us to “do the work (he has) given us to do; to love and serve (God) as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord.” BCP pg. 366.  

Our Christian formation/education hour is held September –May and begins at 9:00 AM, between the two services.

St. Alban's is an Episcopal Church in the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  We are a lively, enthusiastic congregation joyfully living our Mission From God through community, outreach, formation, and worship.  Together we are proud to honor where we come from, together we are living as God's beloved day by day, and together we are growing into the future God dreams for us.
