August 2: Out-of-Season Adult Forum - Jillian Rettig, back from St Vladimir's
A friend's wedding is bringing Jillian to town this coming weekend (Will has to stay in New York for his chaplaincy duties), and she has graciously agreed to be our speaker at an out-of-season adult ed session. Jillian will share her and Will's experience at seminary over these past two years, and her perspectives on life there. It will follow the usual adult ed format: meeting in Archangel Michael Hall at 9 am and finishing just before Liturgy begins. Do join us!

August 16: Open House - Help Needed ...
Dale and Sue Lindwall are coordinating our upcoming community open house, scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, August 16. This is a chance to meet and welcome our neighbors and thank them for their patience with our long construction process. Can you help? Two to four volunteers are needed for Sunday, August 9, to do a literature drop within one block of the church, in all directions. Volunteers are also needed for the 16th, four or five to act as tour guides (1-3 pm) and one to help with refreshments. If you can help or have any question, please contact Dale or Sue.
August 20: Movie Night at AMH - "Autism: The Musical"
From Ronda Wintheiser: At 7 pm on Thursday, August 20, we will have a movie night at Archangel Michael Hall, featuring the documentary "Autism: The Musical." The documentary follows five children with autism, along with their families, as they prepare a stage production with the help of an amazing acting coach who is a single mom of a boy with autism.
The film is meant to introduce the topic of autism for an adult ed session this fall. Benji Flaming is in the process of installing the equipment necessary for a nice theater experience at AMH. Bring your own popcorn or snacks; beverages will be provided. (It is also Jessica Wintheiser's 24th birthday, so cake will be served as well!)
