New Clergy & Churches, Outreach, What Makes Us Special

Resurrection Anglican Welcomes to Bishop Robert Biermann

Resurrection Anglican Church warmly welcomed Bp. Robert Biermann as the National Church’s newest Diocesan Bishop.  Bp. Biermann and his wife, Lori, from South Florida, were hosted by Resurrection’s congregation, which included a fellowship luncheon following the service. (Many thanks to coordinator, June Hart, and the many hands that prepared it.)

Today’s sermon from Matthew, Chapter 7 was preached by Bp. Biermann and reminded us that the message of the false prophets of Jesus’ day is also a relevant message for today’s world – perhaps more than ever.  Being ever mindful of our responsibility to embrace sound doctrine and a faithful study of the scriptures, we as Christians have the perfect defence against these false prophets.

Bp. Biermann is the Diocesan Bishop of the Province of the Holy Spirit in Vero Beach, FL.  We are excited to welcome him into the Reformed Anglican Church, and we look forward to his many gifts and talents as he labors with us in God’s vineyard.  Bp. Biermann feels called to plant churches throughout the Southeastern United States, and we are very excited to see his vision of growth and outreach.

Outreach, What Makes Us Special

Our Annual Meeting 2018

Ian Collage

We had an excellent annual meeting on February 4th after a delicious luncheon and Sunday service.  Senior Warden, Doug Wedding, presented our goals for 2018 and we’re excited to see how God is working to further our ministry.  Our primary goal this year is to increase our local outreach ministries, particularly those that directly impact so many in our community.

In working towards those goals, Resurrection Anglican will now double our monthly monetary contributions to St. Vincent de Paul Thift Store and St. Gerard Maternity Home,  both in St. Augustine.  Our long-term goal will be to contribute 10% of our yearly revenue to these worthy organizations.  We have also made worthwhile material contributions in the way of donated goods and products.  We are so thankful for two families in particular that have paved the way in developing these ministries – the Cumptons and the Rices.  We are grateful for their time and abundant generosity in spearheading this campaign of giving and outreach – their open hearts are a blessing to all!

What else is on the horizon at Resurrection Anglican?  We’re looking to increase our membership by encouraging each congregant to invite a friend or neighbor on Visitors Sunday – to be scheduled once per quarter.  We look forward to sharing our vision – and the Gospel – with others.  Perhaps with added growth in numbers, we can look for ways to grow our facilities and be of an even greater impact on those we would love to serve.

We invite any and all community members to join us in worship, learn about our outreach, and become involved in a small but mighty church family.  We hope to touch lives and get to know those who need a helping hand, while showing them love as Christ loved us.

Our Annual Meeting 2017

We had an excellent annual meeting today after a delicious luncheon and Sunday service. Senior Warden, Doug Wedding, presented our goals for 2017 and we’re excited to see how God works in furthering our ministry. Our primary goal this year is to create an outreach program that directly helps others in our community.

Three concepts, we believe, define us as a church:  1. Sanctity of EVERY human life  2. Helping the poor and homeless. 3. Love of our country.

Putting action to words, we will be taking the following steps: devoting funds to outreach every month and volunteer hours by our parishioners.

Our first two outreach opportunities we’re excited about are St. Gerard Maternity Home and St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shop in St. Augustine. We’ll also continue to work with Clyde E. Lassen Veterans Nursing Home in St. Augustine. Our liaisons for St. Gerard’s are Maureen and Glenn Rice, and our liaisons for St. Vincent de Paul are Lisa and Mike Cumpton. Spearheading the focus on Veterans will be June and Sterling Hart.

We invite any and all community members to join us in worship, learn about our outreach, and become involved in a small but mighty church family. We hope to touch lives and get to know those who need a helping hand, while showing them love as Christ loved us.

Outreach, What Makes Us Special

St. Vincent de Paul Outreach

Beginning in March, Resurrection Anglican is donating to some very worthy causes. The work being recognized today is that of the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. Pictured here is Maureen and Glen Rice, residents of St. Augustine and church parishioners. They have, for years, tirelessly donated their time every week in helping at the store. We believe in the work St. Vincent de Paul is doing and happily keep them in our prayers and in our tithing. Their mission:
* Provide emergency financial assistance in extreme hardship cases.
* Supply furniture, appliances, household items, linens, shoes and clothing to those in need.
* Supporters of the work release program, migrant workers, and substance abuse rehabilitation.
* Provide major financial support to the St. Vincent de Paul Farm.
* Operate a non-profit thrift shop with proceeds going to the above.
Please join us and thanking Maureen, Glen, and all those who support this worthwhile organization.
