News & Announcements:

Stewardship Notes:  Stewardship season is here, and the time has come for each one of us to consider how we will support the life and work of St. Gabriel Episcopal Church.  Pledging a percentage of our financial gifts is one very tangible way to show our gratitude for the wonders of our lives.  Our dollars make ministry possible. Your pledge is a sign of membership within St. Gabrielís.  As our membership numbers in the form of pledges grow, the number of delegates we are allowed to send to the Diocesan Convention increases.  Your pledge is vital to the life of this wonderful community in many ways.

All Saints Day Remembrances:  Sun., Nov. 2nd, Bring a token of remembrance of those we love but see no longer (photo, jewelry, etc.) and/or their favorite finger food for coffee hour and list their name next to the food item.

3rd Quarter Pledge Statements:  are available in the basket in the narthex.  Please help us save postage by picking up your envelope.

Yew Life Center joins St. Gabrielís Endowment Committee in sponsoring ďPlanning Your Financial FutureĒseminars 

  • Sunday, November 2  Getting started: Estate planning for young families

  • Sunday, February 15    Mid-Life Concerns: Incapacity and Medical Assistance

  • TBD -   Growing Older: Taxes, Gifting, and charitable donations

Seminars will be presented by experienced estate planning attorneys.  All of these sessions are appropriate for families throughout the age spectrum. They are designed to help individuals gain peace of mind by clarifying  the decision making processes surrounding financial concerns at all stages of life. The goal is to help you understand your options in Estate Planning.  If you are without clear instructions for your wishes the State of  Oregon will make these decisions for you. Be prepared! All seminars will be held  following the Sunday services at 11:45.  Childcare and food will be provided.  Flyers detailing these seminars can be found in the narthex along with a sign-up sheet. The seminars are open to the public so ask your friends to join you.

Green Community: St. Gabrielís wants to be true to our commitment to be a green community, and we would like to move forward using only biodegradable, green cleaning products. In the future if you donate or purchase cleaning products for the kitchen, classrooms or restrooms please make sure they fit into this category. See the full list on the sign on the church bulletin board.
