First Monday Covered Dish

The First Monday Covered Dish will resume Monday, October 2, 2017. Bring a covered dish to share and enjoy the fellowship. No programs. Just good food and lots of lively discussion.

 

Study Group

We will begin a new series for adult Christian Education at 6:00 PM on September 18th. It will consist of 24 half-hour presentations by Dr. David Brakke, PhD. Dr Brakke is holder of the Joe R Engle Chair in the History of Christianity at The Ohio State University. It's a study developed by The Great Courses Entitled "The Apocryphal Jesus" and will cover the apocryphal writings of the New Testament era. These are writings which are attributed to many of the persons who most are familiar with in the story of Jesus as presented in the New Testament. They are not Holy Scripture, however they do present a fascinating window into the diversity of ancient Christianity and the endless inventiveness of the Christian imagination.

Each session will consist of two 30 minute videos after which we will take some time for discussion.

About Our Church


Who We Are

Saint William Laud Episcopal Church, witnessing to the love of Christ in the community of Pittsburg, Texas since 1954. Whatever your church affiliation may be, all baptized Christians, including children of all ages, are welcome to receive Holy Communion here.?If you are affiliated with another denomination and are a baptized Christian; and are accustomed to receiving communion in your own church; and you anticipate the real spiritual benefit and presence of Christ in the consecrated bread and wine, then you are welcome to receive at the altar.?Our liturgy is conducted on authority of the Book of Common Prayer, 1979, according to the use of the Episcopal Church USA.

Our parish is involved with ministering to the needs of the Pittsburg community in several ways. We operate a day school for pre-kindergarden children. We help feed the needy with our Loaves & Fishes pantry. Several of our members are deeply involved in REC, a prison ministry to several of the Texas prisons. Many of our members volunteer at the local East Texas Medical Center with a books and magazine service to patients. Others volunteer in the pre-op area & the front desk. Others in the parish are involved in visitation to local nursing homes and hospice care.

Those are some of our outreach programs. We are also involved in inreach, that is ministering to our own members. One of the ways we do that is our after-service coffee hour on Sundays after the Eucharist. Another popular event is our "First Monday" covered dish supper. On the first Monday of each month we all gather in the parish hall with whatever dish we care to share with everyone and just have a meal and a lot of good fellowship. Dress is casual and there is no program.

There' a lot going on and everyone can always find a slot to fit in.
