Welcome to St. Chad’s Anglican Church!

COVID-19 Live Services Update
Beloved in Christ,
The Bishops and clergy of the APA have been monitoring the development of the COVID-19 Virus very closely.
St. Chad’s will resume services of Holy Communion at 9:30 am on every other Sunday, beginning on Mother’s Day, May 10.
Social distancing guidelines will be followed, and Communion will be received in one-kind only in the hand(s). There will be no coffee hour or greetings before or after the service. Parishioners may congregate outside to chat after the service at a proper distance. Livestream services on Facebook and YouTube services continue to be available weekly.
Additionally there will be an Ascension Day service that will be posted to our Facebook page at approximately 10:00 am on Thursday, May 21.
Continue to pray for me as I pray for all of you. Thank you all for taking the necessary steps to end this present trial.
May the blessing of our Lord be upon us all.
Yours in Christ,
The Right Rev’d Robert Todd Giffin, Rector

St. Chad’s Anglican Church has an active Sunday School that is based upon the Montessori Method of Education. Mrs. Mavis Caudill is the Sunday School instructor and would love to meet your child! Stop by and see what all the excitement is about!
Backpacks a great success!
After all 24 backpacks filled with school supplies were blessed on Sunday by Bishop Giffin, Fr. Ben and Norma Jean delivered them today. Housman Elementary and Hobby Middle School we’re thrilled and felt very blessed to receive them. Apparently, the school had already received requests for assistance with supplies from families.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Little Free Library
Welcome to one and all! Our Little Free Library is a free book exchange located on the west side of the church next to Orsinger Lane. We also have a shady spot for you to sit while making your selection.
Please take a book (or two) from the Library. You do not need to return the book. Should you like to share a book, please select one that is a good choice for the whole neighborhood. Especially the children.
Little Library book exchanges function on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside. This way, we all win!
At St. Chad’s it is our purpose and commitment….
To provide a Church Home suitable for the worship of Almighty God through his Son Jesus Christ; a safe and friendly harbor for all Christian people who value and appreciate the sacraments, liturgy, services, priesthood, and the traditions of the Church known, loved and respected in the world wide Anglican Communion.
To spread the Gospel and follow the faith of those who have gone before us in this faith, and know that this place, this time, and this Church Home are here the direct result of the sacrifices, dedication, commitment and effort of those many thousands who have labored to preserve it.
And now it is our turn as we share these blessings: to prepare and save souls for the Kingdom of God, and to respect, enjoy, and safeguard this precious heritage with “What scripture doth plainly deliver”*, and with what The Book of Common Prayer offers with its wellspring of the historic services of this faith. To honor our responsibility to pass it on whole and intact to future generations.
