Shrewsbury Parish is a caring community of faithful people created by God, redeemed by the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Our mission is to joyfully radiate God's love and to live in Christ.
Last year we had an extraordinary journey together in Spiritual Formation and our Adult Forum. We learned about spiritual gifts, took a survey and found out about our own spiritual gifts and then, using our 50 hours of Service Booklet, took our gift to the community to share the love of God. Beginning today we will be looking at how to actually “Love our neighbor as our self.” We will be studying the many references to this commandment in the Bible, the story of the Good Samaritan, and we will learn ways together on how to show God’s love through listening. We will also be using our new learning skills to actually “love our neighbors” traveling by twos or threes beyond our own neighborhood. Then, we will return and share our experiences in the Adult Forum. Sound interesting? Join us today at 8:45 a.m. Stay late or come early for your 7:30 or 10:00 a.m. service. We guarantee that you will be blessed!! The Adult formation Committee
Children’s Sunday School 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Sunday School this season is based on the Church’s liturgical calendar where our children will create their own space. We welcome The Sunday Paper - a family owned business that goes by the principles set forth in the first ad flyer they sent out, way back in 1980. “The Sunday Paper is informal, whimsical, faithful to Scripture, and indeed earnest. It is not condescending or cute. It helps children to acquire a vocabulary of crucial Scriptural images, and to relate the Gospel to the Old Testament, the life of the Church, and their own Lives.” We will be using The Sunday Paper (age 9 and up) and the Sunday Paper Junior (ages 3 to 10).
Belief in God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit cannot be taught in less than an hour each Sunday. We, as followers of Christ, can talk about the faith, we can explain the symbolisms, the connections and the meanings of the words that our children hear in church, but belief is a lived faith. This living faith is a mindset and a hope that we take on every day, as we attempt to remember God at all times. Sunday School can only show faith and hope to your children—only the family can instill this peace that passes all understanding. FAITH IS CAUGHT NOT TAUGHT! Remember, Sunday School is just one tool among many for sharing our faith and forming new Christians.
Shrewsbury Supports Veterans through our Knitting and Crocheting Project. And you can too. Visit our Yarn Barn, to see the beautiful materials available, and become inspired. Get an early start on making items for next veterans' day, or something just for yourself. In addition, if you have a trove of needles, yarn, or other supplies to donate, a basket is also available in the Yarn Bank. If you have questions or need more information, please contact Roberta Brown.
