Abundant Love in Scarce Times - An Update on our Annual Giving Campaign
As of Friday, November 20, 2020, we have 80 pledges for a total of $183,758.00
If you have not submitted your Estimate of Giving for 2021 yet, please prayerfully ask yourself, "What portion of my income is God calling me to give in gratitude for all that God has done for me?" The Vestry is beginning to build the budget for 2021 and your generous commitment is helpful and appreciated. Helpful, because that's how the Vestry can prepare our programs and ministries. Appreciated, because the Vestry will have to make phone calls if you haven't replied by Friday, Nov. 20th, and we certainly would like to avoid that! : )
Here are some links to both submit your Estimate of Giving and/or set up automatic payment:
St. Augustine's is joining with other local Episcopal Churches to provide food to members of our community in particular need due to the combined impact of both the pandemic and the hurricane. Together we can help offset some of these losses. The food has been received and divided up into 80 boxes. The distribution will take place on Saturday, Nov. 21st at 10:00 am on a first come, first served basis. Please help spread the news and/or come and help distribute the boxes. Volunteers are needed at 9:30 am on this Saturday.
This Sunday, November 22, 2020
This Sunday we will offer all three celebrations of the Holy Eucharist: 8:00 am Rite 1, 10:30 am Rite 2, and the Spanish Mass at 12:30 pm. All of the previous precautions for in-person worship will continue: mask wearing, social distancing, contact tracing sign-in, hand sanitizing, etc.
All of these services will also be available live (and later recorded) on the St. Augustine's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/staugmet
Please make the choice that is best for you and your family's health and safety.

Adult Formation Class - Rising Strong
The Adult Formation class will begin at 9:15 am. You can attend either in person or on Zoom. The Zoom link is below. We'll be discussing the book by Brene Brown, Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead. Brown's unique way of distilling lessons from hundreds of stories provides us with a blueprint for how to fall, get up, and try again. It's the path to wholehearted living.
