Summer Outreach Event
St Chad’s provided backpacks filled with school supplies for 24 students in our community whose families have limited resources. The Evangelism and Outreach Committee purchased the backpacks and the supplies were provided by our church family.
After all 24 backpacks filled with school supplies were blessed on Sunday by Bishop Giffin, Fr. Ben and Norma Jean delivered them to Housman Elementary and Hobby Middle School. They were 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.
*Richard Hooker, Book V. (c.1594)
