stories of God’s love in their lives, and will be followed by small group discussion, prayer and
reflection in this joyful time of the Resurrection of our Lord. For 8 years the storytellers of the
Women of the Bible, Alive traveling troupe, have learned the power of a good story. Each
storyteller brings her personality to the Bible facts making the Bible women come alive. Come and
enjoy prayer, fellowship and time to discuss these stories that are still relevant to our lives today.
We all have stories of God’s marvelous work in our lives. We share similar longings, struggles, joys
and delights with the women of Bible times. Come be a part of this meaningful ministry. Get in
touch with your own story of God’s Glory in your life.
The Women of St. Anne's will meet in the Parish Hall at 9:00 a.m. for a brief fellowship prior to this

Centering Prayer Times of refreshing…come from the presence of the Lord… Acts 3:19

intimate, with varying amounts of experience. Come, taste and see! We meet on Mondays from
7:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Skylight Room in the Parish Hall. Use the entrance off the parking lot on
Charles Street. Call Carol for information at 410-263-1752.

It's chock-full of info, including our schedule for the 2007-2008 year! We are implementing our

Harrison Sayre Award for Youth
Applications for the Harrison Sayre Award are available in the vestibule of the church, in the office
at the parish house and on line. This $500 award is given annually to a high school senior planning
on attending a two or four year college or university the following fall. Applicants should have been
active in some aspect of parish life - acolyte, choir, Sunday school, youth group, lay reader, etc. The
award is intended to help defray the cost of text books. Applications are due by April 30th. The
award will be announced at church on May 18th at the 9:30 service honoring all graduating seniors.

Youth Heifer Foundation Fundraiser
Give the gift of hope and food, in one of the most practical and earth-friendly ways around! For
decades, the Heifer Project has been turning our donations into grants of livestock to hungry
communities around the world, and then ensuring that the gift continues to give by having families
share the offspring of their animal-cow, pig, goat, rabbits, even chickens!-with others in their
community. The Youth will be selling "animals" both in church and in the community over the next
three weeks. Please consider being generous, especially as we approach Holy Week and the gift of
Our Lord on the cross.
                                  CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
  NOTE: Sunday School starts at 10:45, so there is no need to leave the service before it is over.
The Sunday School NEEDS Your Help
We are looking for volunteers to teach in the Sunday School for the 2008-2009 school year. In
particular, we are looking for teachers and assistants for Pre-K/Kindergarten Godly Play. There will
be in-house training for this class for all those interested. We are also looking for teachers for the
1st/2nd grade class which will begin using the Share the Joy curriculum next year. We really need
your help. We would like to have as many teachers available next year as possible so that we can
offer more flexibility to our volunteers and provide the support the Sunday School needs to
accommodate growth. Please, if you would like to volunteer or you think you might be interested
and need more information, do not hesitate to contact Dawn Campbell at 410-672-7565 or email
dcampbell@stannes-annapolis.org.

All young children are welcome and encouraged to come to church and to participate fully.
Crayons and coloring pages can be found in baskets at the back of the church, and a large rug is also
located at the back of the church where children may play quietly. We urge parents to feel free to
move about as needed. A children’s liturgy is held during the 9:30 service as well. It is targeted
toward the early elementary and preschool age child, but babes in arms are certainly welcome to
come. If you would like to read to the children one Sunday, please contact Dawn Campbell at 410-
672-7565 or dcampbell@stannes-annapolis.org

College, Denise and Jim McCord, Jonathan Coppage and Darren Freeman, provided a hearty dinner
for the guests at the Light House Shelter on March 5. Maggie will organize the meal again on April

St. Anne’s is in the midst of a complete overhaul of its website. The new site will incorporate more
graphics, an easier way to navigate the site, and more information you can use about the church. It
will have easy-to-use online forms, so that we can sign people up for youth events or create an
“online visitor card” where people can tell us about themselves when they visit our website. It will
have a photo gallery where photos of our parish life will be published. It will have a calendar
function, tools to present online video, and much more. We’re excited about this new project, and
appreciate your patience during this period of transition.

Support St. Anne's Through Your IRA Account
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 gives those at least age 70 1/2 with traditional or Roth IRAs the
opportunity to make tax-free gifts directly to qualified charities like St. Anne's Church. Donors may
find it wise to make gifts from IRA funds that would be subject to tax if withdrawn voluntarily or
under mandatory withdrawal requirements. Transactions must be made before the end of
December. For more information, consult your financial or tax advisor and ask about making
contributions through the Charitable IRA option.

NEED A PRAYER? BE A PRAY-ER! St. Anne’s Prayer Chain Committee offers a parish-wide ministry to
strengthen our network of prayer support for one another. If you have a specific request for a prayer,
please describe it here, tear off this form and deposit it in the offering plate. If you would be willing to
pray for the needs of a fellow parishioner during the coming week, please take a form from the narthex
or side entrance and hold that request. As always, any request may be called into the office at 410-267-
9333, or Margot Hamill (410-757-2447). Our prayer chain is an important part of this ministry. If you
would like to be a part of this team, call Margot Hamill.
