What’s happening at Incarnation
Join our email list to receive weekly updates, spiritual reflections, and access information for offerings held via Zoom. Here are a few highlights!
Every third Sunday of the month, parishioners are invited to the Parish Dining Room at 12:30 pm to help make sandwiches and pack lunches for Ecclesia Ministries of New York, which serves those who are food and housing insecure.
The Rev. Deacon Denise LaVetty serves an Ecclesia congregation that currently worships in the courtyard of Church of the Transfiguration (29th Street, between 5th and Madison) every Sunday from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Parishioners are also invited to attend this 2:00 p.m. service of Holy Eucharist and then distribute the lunches.
Brunch and Supper Groups
Sign up for a new round of Brunch/Supper Groups! Two to three groups will begin this fall of a popular Incarnation program. Small groups of parishioners (8 people) share four monthly dinners or brunches in each other’s homes. Hosts rotate monthly.
Don’t have space to entertain? You’ll be paired with a co-host who does, or you can use the Parish Dining Room. Contact the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser for more information or to sign up.
Our Beliefs, Our Practices, Our Parish
Aimed primarily at helping newcomers and new members integrate into the parish, this three-part class is open to everyone who would like to know more about what our church believes and does. Topics include (1) Christian doctrine foundational to our faith, (2) spiritual practices in the Episcopal tradition, and (3) different ways of serving the church and serving the world through the church. We’ll gather on three consecutive Sundays — September 24, October 1 and October 8 — from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. We hope you can join us! Contact the Rev. Dr. Nathaniel Jung-Chul Lee for more information.

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).
