We are beginning to read a new book, "
The Religion of the Apostles" by Fr Stephen De Young. 
This is one of the best sellers among Orthodox books at the moment. The book "presents the Orthodox Christian Church of today as a continuation of the religious life of the apostles, which in turn was a continuation of the life of the people of God since the beginning of creation."
We meet via Google Meet; therefore, reply to this email to get the meeting link.

Seeing that we have come to enjoy so great a benefit, we should be always mindful of it, and continually to turn in our minds to the free gifts of God, and to reflect upon what we have been delivered from, what we have obtained. And so we will be thankful. So we will heighten our love toward Him.
- Saint John Chrysostom

We have had a lot of donations made for the garage sale, and it is time to get to work.
Little Falls is having a town-wide yard sale on September 18, and we plan to have our Sunday School Rummage Sale on that day as well.
We ask everyone to help with the event. The plan is to set up September 11. We will also need volunteers for the day of the sale and for the clean up. A signup sheet will be created soon, and we ask you to contribute whatever time you can.

God grant you many years!
Experience an innovative program that connects musical lineages and looks to the future of Orthodox sacred music. Hear the finest young voices of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, hailing from around North America, as they join together for the first time to explore their heritage, establish their identity, and move into the future.
Beginning in pre-revolutionary Russia, the concert program moves West over the 20th century and ends in contemporary America. It is a cultural statement and an artistic reflection on our living history as descendants of Russian émigrés, as well as a dive into the possibilities of the future of our music. By discovering our past, we will build our future.
