VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL!
The Gospel According to Dr. Seuss!
Everyone, from 0 to 100 years old, is invited to come and play at St. Gregory’s during Vacation Bible School on Monday, July 13- Thursday, July 16, from 5:30 – 7:45 each evening. A simple supper, adaptable for even the pickiest eaters, will be offered each night between 5:30 and 6:15. All ages will explore together social justice themes found in a different Seuss book each night, make fun creations, play games, connect with scripture, sing, and pray.
Want to be a part of making this fun event happen? Volunteers are needed to help set up, cook, and clean up each day, help decorate on Sunday and Monday afternoons (12th and 13th), and assist with arts and crafts. Contact Catherine Drewry at 706-201-7241 or firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. Thank you!

Calendar of Events
DETOUR! Through July, Simonton Bridge Road will be closed, making an alternative route necessary to get to St. Gregory's from Watkinsville. From downtown Watkinsville, turn left onto S. Barnett Shoals Road (4.9 miles). S. Barnett Shoals Road becomes Bob Godfrey Road (1.1 miles). Then turn left onto Barnett Shoals Road (.1 miles past Travis Drive) and St. Gregory's will be another 4.2 miles down Barnett Shoals. Parking lot on the Right.
St. Gregory's participates with four other east side churches in FEAST, a distribution of food from the Northeast Georgia Foodbank. We do this quarterly. Saturday, June 27 will be the next scheduled distribution. The site is at Covenant Presbyterian on Gaineschool Rd., which is across the street from a bus stop. Volunteers are needed for Registration, Site set-up/Parking, and Distribution. On Sunday, there will be sign-up sheets on the wall to the left of the Outreach Bulletin Board in the Christian Education Building. This is a great way to be involved in serving our neighbors.
The liaisons form St. Gregory's are Beth (706.546.7553 ext.2), Karen Kassinger (706.549.3631), Vicky Tavernier (706.201.5265), and Carol Cason (706.338.4789). Please feel free to contact any one of us if you have questions.
Sunday, July 12, 2015, at 3 p.m., will be our next Rhythms of Grace service, a family worship service where all forms of physical and vocal responses are embraced. Rhythms of Grace is an adaptive church service for those for whom conventional worship may be difficult, including those on the Autism Spectrum. This service features scripture and storytelling that includes spoken and visual cues, therapeutic play for the response, and a simplified prayer for Holy Communion. Gathering and dismissal rituals help with transitioning. The Reverend Gordon Bienvenue, a retired Methodist minister, officiates at this inter-denominational service for the whole family.
St. Gregory's hosts Rhythms of Grace on the second Sunday of each month in the Sanctuary, located at 3195 Barnett Shoals Rd, Athens, Georgia. We are next door to Athens Montessori School. All are welcome at every service at St. Gregory’s. Please invite your friends! Any questions? Contact Catherine Drewry, director of Children’s Ministries at 706-201-7241 or email@example.com The Rev. Gordon Bienvenue may be reached at 706-850-0090 or firstname.lastname@example.org
