News & Announcements:
Weather Alert: Generally, on weekdays when the Beaverton Public Schools are closed, St. Gabriel’s office will be closed, staff will not report and services may not be held. We will make every effort to conduct the regularly scheduled celebrations of the Eucharist (on Sundays and Wednesday) during weather emergencies (though some events may be scaled back or cancelled). We will try to update the church voicemail announcement as soon as we can. We will post announcements here, use FlashAlert Newswire, we will send out e-mail announcements (which, of course, only go to those who have given us email addresses). In some instances, extreme weather conditions may cause a delay in attending to these duties. It is possible that a decision to cancel services or close our facilities as a precautionary measure will turn out not to have been necessary. Parishioners are invited to remember that the wardens and vicar have a legal responsibility to protect the congregation from legal action that might result from non-cancellation. Please use care and discretion in problematic travel conditions. God wants you healthy and happy, and so do we!
Office will be Closed: December 26th, December 27th, December 30th, January 2nd and January 3rd.
The Longest Night: In the example of Christ who carries our sorrows we invite you to share our Longest Night Eucharist on Wednesday, December 21st at 7:30 p.m. In this service, accompanied by extraordinary music, we hope to honor not only God’s presence in this season of darkness, but also the gift of tears bearing witness to human longing for healing and strength. Those experiencing loss often struggle in this season and culture, which inhibit expressions of lament and loneliness. St. Gabriel’s offers this space to come in the knowledge that whether we weep or rejoice we are loved and accepted by God. A labyrinth walk will follow the service, weather permitting. Please call (503)645-0744 for more information.

ST. GABRIEL CHURCH SCHOOL
Church school meets most
Sundays starting at 10 am in one of three age-appropriate
classrooms: Godly Play for preschoolers and kindergarteners and two
Season of the Spirit classrooms for 1st-3rd graders and 4th-6th
graders. Every 3-5 weeks we have a family service instead of church
school so children sit in our Episcopal Worship Service with their
families or at worship tables with a liturgy-related project. The
nursery is still open these Sundays. To know what is happening for
children on a particular Sunday, please check the small white board
on the church school bulletin board to the left of the restrooms.
If you are visiting or new to St. Gabriel's, your child is welcome in church school! Please ask a greeter or usher where to go and a teacher will greet and guide you. Children will be brought by teachers into the worship space in time to take Communion with their families.
ST. GABRIEL NURSERY
Our church nursery is open every Sunday (except Christmas Day Dec. 25th) during the 10 am service for infants and young children 3 ˝ years and under. Visiting families are welcome to use our nursery after filling out a registration form. Two caregivers will care for children and nursery parents are asked to come get their child from the nursery before Communion. Children older than 3 1/2 are welcome in church school or can sit in the worship space with their families.
ST. GABRIEL FAMILY MINISTRY
St. Gabriel’s Community Playgroup is a weekly gathering in our church nursery every Tuesday starting September 13th from 9:00-10:20 am for young children and their parents or caregivers. Children play together while adults socialize and find support. All are welcome, and most children are infant through preschool. Sometimes the group will go on field trips together. If you would like more information or would like to be put on our weekly email list to know what the group is up to, please email playgroup host Bekah at playgroup @stgabrielonline.org.
ST. GABRIEL YOUTH
Youth group 7th-12th graders sit together with leaders most Sundays at the 10 am service on the purple fleece on the pew behind the acolytes. The group takes early Communion and goes back to the youth room for a quick discussion and check-in. Some Sundays we will meet in the library during the service for a more in-depth discussion. We have a service project or fun outing at least once a month. Youth group is led by our Youth Minister Rev. Dcn. Marianne Allison and leaders Helen McKee and Jennifer Brandlon. To know what the group is up to on the current Sunday, please check the small white board on the youth bulletin board to the left of the restrooms.
