Brainstorming Session

Join us during Coffee Hour after the 10 am service on Sunday, September 24, for a lightning-round brainstorming session on fundraisers. Come with your creative ideas on events and activities to raise money in 2017-18 to help support Holy Spirit's operating expenses. Let's see how many ideas we can generate during coffee hour!  No "judging" during this session; all ideas are welcome, and thinking outside the box is strongly encouraged! 

Social Media Sunday

Often, worshippers are asked to put away their devices during worship service, but you won’t hear that on Social Media Sunday, September 24. Why? Because Jesus said so. Jesus tells the story of the land owner questioning the laborers, "why are you standing here idle all day?" The laborers were sent into the vineyard to work. We too must go into God's vineyard!

Holy Spirit Food Pantry Open

Pantry set-up begins at 8am.

The first shift of Volunteers is from 8-10am, and the second shift is 9-11am.

Pantry will be open for "shoppers" from 9-11am.

Welcome to Church of the Holy Spirit!

map

The red door on an Episcopal (Anglican) Church is traditionally a sign of welcome. Come through the door, and you'll discover that we are a multi-generational, family-centered church. Our congregation worships together, supports each other in times of trouble, celebrates together, and does God’s work in the world.  We are open, welcoming, and inclusive. We invite you to join us.

Finding Holy Spirit

The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit is located at 36 Gould Street, Verona, and is one block north of Bloomfield Avenue. It is directly across the street from the H.B. Whitehorne Middle School track.

Park in the parking lot and come in the red door. Before each service, you are likely to find our rector standing on the sidewalk or front steps to greet you.
