What’s happening at Incarnation

Due to the Covid pandemic, we are using the Parish House on a limited basis. We have resumed Sunday morning Bible Study and children’s classes in the Parish House (requiring masks for all) and will be evaluating what other parish programming to host in person and what programming to host on Zoom. You can learn more about our developing response to the pandemic, which prioritizes physical safety and spiritual togetherness, here. Join our email list to receive weekly updates, spiritual reflections, and access information for offerings held via Zoom. Here are a few highlights!

Register for Sacred Ground

All are welcome to our first session of Sacred Ground on Tuesday, October 12, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Zoom. Sacred Ground is a prayerful resource that creates sacred space for challenging, respectful and transformative dialogue on race and racism. Incarnation will offer this 10 session series once a month on Zoom (generally on a Monday or Tuesday night). Contact the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser to register and receive online access information to the study guide and homework materials. Parishioners are invited to attend Session 1 and then make a commitment to continue with Sacred Ground for the full 10 sessions.

Sign up for a Small Group!

Our fall small group series will focus on Adam Hamilton’s book, Half Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn’t Say. Compare common “Christian” sayings with the wisdom found in Scripture.
 
Small groups will meet weekly for five consecutive weeks beginning the week of Sunday, October 17Contact the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser if you would like to participate in a lay-led small group of six to eight parishioners. Let her know what days of the week and times of day (morning/afternoon/evening) are most convenient for you, and whether you prefer to meet in person or on Zoom.

Education for Ministry

Incarnation will be starting an Education for Ministry (EfM) group on Wednesday, October 20 at 6:30 p.m. Meetings will be weekly and run for one academic year. The cost of the program is $375 and includes all the materials required. (If cost is an issue for you, please reach out to the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser.) This seminar will deepen your understanding of the Bible and our Church. Contact the church office if you are interested or have questions.

Parishioners are invited to Moravian Open Door (347 E. 18th St.) for a Halloween bingo party with the residents on Wednesday, October 27, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  We are seeking donations of bingo prizes worth approximately $10 as well as refreshments (individually wrapped, please).

20s/30s are invited to the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser’s roof deck on Saturday, October 30, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm for brunch and pumpkin carving! Contact Adrian for more information or to RSVP.

Hour Children - Canned Food Drive

A hearty thank you to everyone who donated to our very successful backpack drive on behalf of our new community partner, Hour Children! Now the organization has put out a call for canned fruits and vegetables for their food pantry. These will replace the fresh fruits and vegetables that were available to them over the summer but aren’t delivered during the fall and winter months. There are three easy ways to donate:

  1. Purchase canned fruits and vegetables from Incarnation’s Hour Children Amazon gift list, and they will be delivered directly to Hour Children. (Consider adding a free gift note to let them know the donation comes from our parish.)
  2. Purchase canned fruits and vegetables to bring to church, or contact the church office to arrange for drop-off at the Parish House.
  3. Select an online store of your choosing and use this delivery address: Hour Children, ATTN: Kellie Phelan, 3611 12th Street, Long Island City, NY 11106

We hope everyone will contribute generously to this worthy cause!

Hour Children - Tutoring

For those of you who want to get personally involved with our new community partner, Hour Children, tutoring is a great way to make a positive difference in a child’s life. Tutoring gives students improved study habits, retention and academic performance; enhanced self-esteem; and intellectual independence. Hour Children welcomes tutors from our parish. Tutors are needed for children of all ages and in all subjects, and the tutoring can be done either remotely or in person. If you’re interested, please fill out this form and e-mail it to Kellie Phelan, one of Hour Children’s program directors, at KPhelan@HourChildren.org. She’ll get in touch with you and connect you with a student in need.

Make Your Sunday Offering Online

Receiving from the Reserved Sacrament

Incarnation is offering the sacrament of Holy Communion (in one kind) to individuals who do not feel comfortable attending in-person worship. If you would like to come to the Parish House to receive the host from the reserved sacrament, please contact the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser. We are always eager to share the gift of God’s grace with you.

Spiritual Tips and Biblical Reflections

We are collecting spiritual tips and reflections on Scripture from members and friends of the parish. If you have a favorite prayer practice, devotional book, Bible verse or other source of spiritual nourishment, contact the clergy to share it with the larger Incarnation community. Submissions in writing or video recording (up to 2 minutes) are welcome. Thank you for helping us “encourage one another and build each other up” as the Body of Christ. (1 Thess. 5:11). 

Birthday Card Program

We are sending birthday cards as another way of letting you know of your importance to our parish community. So far, we have collected over 125 birthdays. If you would like us to remember you on your special day, please email the month and date of your birth, as well as your address, to office@churchoftheincarnation.org so that we might update our records.
