Merry Christmas from Beaches Episcopal School!

As we approach Christmas, the faculty and staff of Beaches Episcopal School wishes all of our students, families, and friends the very best. Tomorrow is a fun day filled with pajamas, hot chocolate, carol singing, and classroom parties. We hope you will join us for these special times with your students. We will have an early dismissal at 11:30 a.m. so that you can get a head start on the holidays!

We pray you have a safe and joyful Christmas as you remember the reason for this season of hope. We also pray for God's blessings for your family as we begin 2017! Happy New Year!

ChurchChat: News from St. Paul's by-the-Sea Episcopal Church

St. Paul’s by-the-Sea is excited to invite you to our Advent Program for this year! For the next four weeks, we will offer programs that lend themselves to our theme of “Wellness Wednesday.” Looking for a Bible study? Our Adult Bible Study meets at 9:00 a.m. in the Christopher Lobby with Eucharist immediately afterward.

For youth in 6th through 12th grade, we offer dinner and Bible Study from 6:00 p m.– 7:00 p.m. in the Youth House! While that is going on, we invite you to join us for our Book Study of “Breathing Underwater.” In this book written by Franciscan priest Richard Rohr, we will be using the 12 Steps to Spirituality to prepare for Christ’s coming in Advent through the season of Lent. Books are $12, but scholarships are available for those who need them. We sincerely hope that you will join us for Wellness Wednesdays!
