This Sunday, April 19, The Rev. Virginia Brown will preach during the 10:30 Eucharist. She and Becca Cox will leave after worship to drive to Cincinnati for a meeting of the National Association of Episcopal Christian Communities, of which Rivendell is a part.
It is still Easter. Please bring flowering branches of lilacs or others you may have to decorate the altar for worship. This is a beautiful spring - everything is out in full bloom!
Notes from the Bishop's Committee
The two windows in the Church that need replacement will be taken care of as soon as it stops raining, so that we do not get moisture problems.
Saturday, April 18 - We have several people who are willing to be trained as Eucharistic ministers to assist with the distribution of Communion on Sunday and Eucharistic visitors to take Communion to those who are homebound: Rick Carr, Becca Cox, Eric Schmidt, Lee Schmidt and Vance Halfaker. The first training will be held THIS Saturday morning from 9-12 noon in the parish hall and church. The Rev. Brenda Sickler will teach this class for Eucharistic ministers and visitors.
Please attend also if you are interested and your name does not appear on this list!
