You Are Welcome At Saint Aidan's Episcopal Church!
We are a loving community of followers of Jesus who worship joyfully in the Episcopal tradition, support each other in prayer and fellowship, and serve the community through our outreach ministries. Please stay after worship so we can say hello. Whether it is through participating in the worship on Sunday morning, or through serving as the hands and feet of Jesus to the world by out-reach ministries, we know that you’ll find a home here at St Aidan’s!!!
Hallelujah! Praise the Name of the Lord!
Our readings for Sunday, May 19 are: Acts 11:1-18; Psalm 148; Revelation 21:1-6; John 13:31-35.
On Sunday, May 19, we continue our Sermon Series for the Easter Season about the “Dreaded ‘E’ Word,” a word so frightening that it is never even whispered inside most churches.
Today’s sermon: Jesus gives us both marching orders and inspiration to get into the game.
Jesus said "This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:35
Jesus sets a high bar for discipleship, that we so obviously one one another that other people will recognize it. And even though this particular verse speaks of loving only one another, Jesus clearly wants us to love everyone, especially those we may not be inclined to love.
