Parish News

During a stewardship campaign we hear the words “Time, Talent, and Tithe (money)”. Each of these is important for the care and well being of God’s church. Over the past months St. Elizabeth has seen the evidence of this through the efforts of several volunteers. They have devoted their time and talents to be good stewards of God’s church through many different projects. Some of which are still on-going. Here is a recap of what has happened over the past several months.

On September 2, members of St. Elizabeth brought school supplies to Pelican Island Elementary School in Sebastian, FL. Over several weeks parishioners brought in school supplies and backpacks to help support parish families and those associated with parish. There was an overwhelming support and supplies kept pouring into the church. The big question was who to give the abundance of left-over supplies. When we looked out in the congregation we knew we had several educators who taught at Pelican Island Elementary and decided to give them to the Pelican Island.

On August 23, 2014, the campus of St. Elizabeth Episcopal Church in Sebastian, FL was the host to a Scout Expo that included Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts from the various Troops in the area. The Expo provided the surrounding community the opportunity to see various skills and activities Scouting offers. It also provided those attending to opportunity to sign up with one of the scout troops.

Scouting is great organization teaching our children skills, values, and giving them self confidence. It was a great day...

Well we can tell you that this year’s program was very fruitful and much fun. With 57 children in attendance and 32 volunteers, St. Elizabeth’s Church was rockin for 5 days. With Fr. Dave leading us in prayer from the beginning of the night to “Sailor Jim Bonet” ending us with each evening’s sing-a-long, the children in our community were blessed with the activities, food and study provided. The theme was Son-Island Treasure which focused on God’s nature of love, giving and kindness. Each child enjoyed the studies, the games and the fellowship with one-another.

3rd Advent Joy in Knowing

Posted December 14th, 2014

[video link to the sermon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_DqT0fXP9A&feature=youtu.be ] Joy can come from many different sources. It may be the Christmas Catcus blooms around Christmas rather than months later. It be that a family member or grandchildren visit. It may seeing something in nature that reminds you of God's creation. The greatest Joy is knowing God's grace, His love, and His mercy. The joy is not explainable. You cannot describe it. You feel it within. It is the of knowing God loves us so much that He made a way for us to be reconciled to Him.
