Much has occurred since I last wrote to you, and I am enthusiastic to report that God

And more!
It is a pleasure to be your shepherd, and in the hopes of transparency, here are a few things to know: you can follow me on
Twitter at chriskhartley, I want you to know that One-to-One visits are going great (expect a call from me soon),
worship is flourishing, the community is expressing interest in our mission, God is at work, and we must remain
faithful.
Your faithfulness in attendance and financial support is vital to continuing our growing momentum. God chooses not to do it
all alone. Rather God chooses to channel God’s work through us. What is your role? Who can you invite? How might you be
an extension of the very work begun by Christ, Himself while here with us?
Get Started Today! We need you! Stay Tuned!

THE RESTROOMS ARE COMING! THE RESTROOMS ARE COMING!
August Ministers of Service
Mack Burt, Interim Chair, Building and Grounds
New restrooms are on the way for the Sister House. On June 16 your vestry approved a
plan to completely renovate both the men’s and women’s restrooms in the Sister
House. The plan was developed by Anniston architect Jay Jenkins working with Jerry
Watson, Lenn Costner, Jr. and myself, as well as with input from numerous members of the
parish. Anne Cody, Louise Lokey, Carol Ann Watson and Audrey Vander Yacht provided
invaluable assistance and advice. Their energy and interest never let the need for the
project be forgotten.
Construction is scheduled to begin in early August. Steve Hale Construction Company will
be the general contractor. You may recall that Steve has done numerous projects for us
over a 30-year time period. The chapel renovation, restoration of the nave stained glass
windows, the “shoring up” of the nave foundation structure and the rebuilding of exterior
porches are but a few.
Based on current material and appliance lead times and provided that we do not find any
unexpected “evil gremlins” in our 1888 structure, the schedule is to complete the project in
three weeks in August. With this plan we will be without the existing facilities for two
Sundays. During this period the restrooms in the Administration Building will be
available. The small restroom upstairs in the Sister House has been renovated for the
children, and it also will be available.
Our first objective in the project was to maximize the limited space available. To that end,
we absorbed the space that was the old nursery area (currently used for robing) and
provided a new, albeit smaller, robing room at the rear of the first floor hall.
The renovation will add one additional toilet and lavatory in each restroom. The lavatories
and one toilet stall in each restroom will be wheelchair accessible, as will all entrance
doors.

From the start, a major objective was to preserve historical integrity. All existing original
doors and trim will be reused. All new materials including paint colors will be in keeping
with the period.
A word of thanks is in order to Jerry and Lenn for all of their time and effort on this
project. A thank you is also due Chris and the Vestry for their patience, understanding and
support. When completed we will have a facility that is functional and one that we can be
proud of.
In peace,
Mack

In an effort to be good stewards of the funds God has blessed us with,
beginning in September, we will send an email link to The Trumpet so
that we will not have to mail as many copies to help save on postage
and printing paper. Please make sure that your current email address
is on file in the church office. If you are unable to receive a digital
copy, please contact the church office so that we can make
arrangements to continue to mail you a copy.
United Thank Offering
August 10th
United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through United Thank Offering,
men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and
name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in UTO discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. United Thank Offering
is entrusted to promote thank offerings, to receive the offerings, and to distribute the UTO monies to support mission and ministry
throughout the Episcopal Church and in invited Provinces of the Anglican Communion in the developing world.

Please sign up in the Narthex if you are available to work at

Volunteers
If you are interested in volunteering, now is a great time to
get started. New ministry opportunities are often available,
and existing ministries always need willing volunteers.
Please prayerfully consider where your talents could be
used and sign up or call the office.
We currently need volunteers to host Coffee Hour, sign up
to volunteer at the Soup Bowl September 2nd & 3rd, help
staff the clinic, volunteer in the office and assist in other
areas as well.
Beans-n-Rice
Everyone is invited August 16th at 8 am as we prepare to
distribute food to our community. Due to the excessive
heat, we will be distributing directly from the Altar
beginning at 9am. (New time just for August.) It is a
unique experience that we are blessed with to share the
love of Christ with our neighbors. Food donations can be
dropped off at the church office during normal office hours.
For more information, please see Harvey Roberts.

Thank you so much for your continued support of St. Michael’s Clinic. Your
kindness and generosity go a long way in providing community-based clinic
services to our area; however, there is one area in which more help is needed.

Thank you so much for welcoming me into the community of St.
Michael & All Angels. It is has been a joy to get to know you and to
work with many of you at the clinic. We have some exciting things
going on at the clinic! We recently received a facelift with a new coat
of paint to our exterior. We hope to reflect the beauty of our home
church. The interior will soon be painted as well. A leader in the
graphics design department of Jacksonville State University donated
her services in designing a new logo for the clinic. The generosity of
individuals and community agencies will support us in assisting more
uninsured patients to receive the medical care and treatment they
need. The staff and volunteers of St. Michael’s Clinic count it as
privilege to serve God’s people in meeting their physical needs, as
well as spiritual and emotional needs. Mother Teresa once said, One
of the greatest diseases is to be a nobody to anybody. It is my
heartfelt prayer that we see everybody as somebody at St. Michael’s
Medical Clinic.
