    Saint Francis is hosting a Bowl-a-Thon on October 25th, 2014, from 12-3 pm at the Santa Ana Starlight Bowling Center. The Bowl-a-Thon is a new kind of fundraiser to benefit our parish, the Saint Francis Episcopal Church of Rio Rancho, NM. You don’t have to be member, and in fact we want as much participation from the local area as possible. It is a great opportunity for fellowship, with the added benefit of improving your bowling skills (or just having fun, since not all of us are good bowlers!). Our goal is to have a minimum of 20 teams (four persons per team). Even if you don’t bowl, you can be an event sponsor (your donations will help make our inaugural Bowl-a-Thon a smashing success, no pun intended) or a volunteer to help the wheels turn (or balls roll) smoothly.
    This is a planning announcement --- stayed tuned for more details about the event and registration materials, etc. Please contact Eloise Gift (interim coordinator) at (505) 363-5156 or (505) 896-1999.

    Saint Francis Episcopal Church - Our Church, Our Vision

    Vision: The St. Francis Church family seeks to glorify God through worship, fellowship, teaching, and service. We worship God in the Episcopal tradition, hear God through the preaching and teaching of Christ’s Gospel and serve God by caring for others.

    We are a parish church in the Diocese of the Rio Grande, which is part of the Episcopal Church, USA (TEC). TEC is part of the larger global Anglican Communion.

    We're a friendly, informal group. We invite you to come worship with us this Sunday morning!

    Sermon Notes, September 7, 2014

    Pentecost 13, Proper 18A, 9-7-14 St. Francis Church
    Rev’d Jennifer Phillips Ex.12:1-14;Ps 149; Rom.13:8-14; Mtt.18:15-20

    The other week I was on a plane next to a stylish young man in elegant business clothes, and in his lap the chapter heading in his book was “Where do you belong?” It left me thinking. So I ask today: Do you think of yourself as one who belongs – to the universe, the world, society, the Church? What does it mean to belong?
