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.

Events, Opportunities, Giving

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

Altar Flowers for 2020

Each Sunday the flowers on the altar are donated in memory or personal
celebration. If there are any changes or additions to your week, please contact Sue Coleman. Please let the altar guild member know if you want the flowers after the service and they will be put into a container for you.
Otherwise, they can be given to someone who is ill or in need or cheer.

It is time to gather food for the Thanksgiving Outreach project. This year we have at least 18 Shrewsbury families we will be giving a turkey and other Thanksgiving food items. We encourage you to look at this list of food, purchase what you would like to contribute and drop off in the Parish Hall (Thanksgiving Outreach table will be there after Sunday, October 27th). The turkeys are being provided by one source so no need to buy turkeys again this year. We would like to have all non-perishable items by Sunday, November 17th so that we have a week to get all missing items, to bag and distribute on Sunday, November 24th.

Cloth bags for carrying food items for each family
Bags of rice, potatoes, beans and onions
Fresh carrots and fruit
Canned soups, beans, corn and fruit
Boxed cookies

Acme Gift Cards or monetary donations are always welcome and should be taken to the Parish office. Checks should be made out to Shrewsbury Parish Church Outreach Program. Thank you so much for helping us with this very worthwhile project. 

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).

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.

Yoga Mondays in the Morning
Fletcher Johnson of River Warrior Yoga continues classes on Mondays at 9:00 a.m., and includes the use of props (or bring your own). No yoga on major holidays, contact our office with questions.
          If you have any questions about the class, visit  Fletcher's website at​
