Greetings from Rev. Mike Woods

Greetings St. Liz,

The Woods family is very excited to begin our time with you this coming week. It has been a long hot summer for us as I am sure it has been the same for you.

I am writing this after standing outside with our oldest daughter, Harper, as we watched a nice little summer rainstorm pour down upon us. It was just long enough that it knocked the heat out of the air and left a cool breeze in its wake. It was cool enough that we actually felt like spending more than ten minutes outside after the storm passed. ...Read More

Reminders for September

by The Rev. Daniel P Strandlund on September 10, 2020
Sunshine Mail:  If we want to send one letter to every resident of the assistant living facilities we’re supporting in Buda, we’d need 65 letters.  As of this writing, we have 12.  Team, we can do better than this.  Details for Sunshine Mail can be found here.  Just drop them in the mailbox on the church porch by Sunday!
Godly Play:  Godly Play starts this Sunday at 9am!  At the bottom of this newsletter, you’ll find a special Godly Play section.  In it you’ll find Zoom info for Sunday, a PDF of a Godly Play church calendar, Godly Play dates for the fall, and other info.  If you have any questions about Godly Play, please reach out to Ruth Anne Bloor at or (303) 803-4382.
Backpack Blessing:  This Sunday, September 13!  We’ll pray over backpacks, devices, brief cases, badges, and any other school or work items.  We will do this over Zoom so as to include everyone.  Also, after worship, from 11am-11:45am, we’ll have a ‘drive through’ backpack blessing where we’ll hand out stickers and keychains as our tangible reminders of God’s presence as we start a new school year.
Outdoor, In-Person Worship:  Next Sunday, September 20th at 7:30am!  All the “where, when, what to bring, etc.” details from our last outdoor can be found at this link.  Those details are the same as last time, with three exceptions:
*I’ll be preaching Exodus 16:2-15.
*As for numbers to expect, last time we had +/- 35 folks.
*Bring a rock from home.  You can do one per household, or one per person.  Our service will include a chance to add yours to a small cairn we’ll make to mark the day.
Bishop’s Committee:  Our next Bishop’s Committee meeting is Monday, September 21 at 8pm.  The BC is meeting over Zoom right now.  BC meetings are open to the congregation.  If you’d like to attend, email me ( and I will include you on the Zoom link.
God’s Peace,
