Welcome!

We invite you to soak in God’s light amongst good company.  Community is very important to us at Holy Spirit.  We enjoy a vibrant parish social life with barbecues, family game nights, bunko, occasional Sunday brunches together, among other activities.

We take seriously Jesus’ command to “love one another as I have loved you” and care for one another by providing practical, emotional, and spiritual support for each other in times of need (and times of joy-like the birth or adoption of a child).

Of course, community extends beyond those with whom we worship. For us, Outreach is love in action.  Food scarcity is a primary area of concern and we address that with our Beans and Rice Ministry.  We are currently pursuing partnerships with schools and other agencies to assist with providing food during the weekends and holidays for children who traditionally receive free or reduced meals at school.

All are always welcome at any of our events!

You can also click to join our Facebook Board page. This is an active page where members and guest can share thoughts, prayers, articles, and what’s going on at Holy Spirit.

 

 

 

From the Vestry

Welcome to the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit! We are an inclusive, inquiring community doing our best to follow in the path set forth by Jesus.

Our mission is to create worship, ministries, education, and social gatherings which support our deepening discipleship with Christ.  We believe it is important that our experience of “church” reaches beyond the confines of any building or worship service; and that it must be relevant to how we live our lives–how we raise our families, care for aging parents, mend broken relationships,  approach our vocations, and participate in the needs of our community and the world.

Grateful for Christ’s message of love, grace, and forgiveness , we  attempt to embody that for our families, church, and the greater community.  We are grounded in the teachings and worship of the Episcopal Church.

It is our experience that deepening discipleship is lived out in individual prayer and study,corporate worshipChristian education, sharing of gifts, gathering in community, and tending to the least of these.  We believe the Holy Scriptures are living words, pointing to the way as ascribed by the Living Word–Christ.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Please join us for one of our worship offerings, adult or children’s educational programs, or contact us directly for a conversation. office@holyspirit-al.org

 

Proper 13A Mary Bea Sullivan August 3, 2014

Sermons should have a PDF link to the program which will be uploaded in WordPress and will have an embedded Youtube or Vimeo video recording. Audio can be used in WordPress as well, but we would have to configure that. I reccommend Soundcloud for uploading audio regularly.
