CAFÉ ST. ALABAN’S & ADVENT SERIES
 – The Way of Love – Practices for Jesus-Centered LifeThis Advent season we will gather to explore an initiative led by the Most Rev. Michael B. Curry – the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. The Way of Love is not a curriculum or a program, but one type of spiritual rule of life / practices that are meant to help us structure our lives around the life and teachings of Jesus; an “outline of a Rule for the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement.” Wednesday evenings: 12/4; 12/11; 12/18. Supper begins at 6:00PM; program begins at 6:40PM. Childcare provided. 

PLEASE – PLEASE rsvp for supper and childcare by signing up at the kiosk in the Commons room, or call the church office at (828) 324-1351. 

NOTE: As this Advent program encourages daily practices, we invite you to pick-up The Way of Love – Practices for Jesus-Centered Life hand-out in the Commons.

 YOGA comes to St. Alban’s!

We are blessed to have enough people interested in yoga to host TWO community classes each week at St. Alban’s.

  • Monday mornings 10-11 a.m. 
  • Thursday mornings 10-11 a.m.
  • Thursday evenings 6:30-7:30 p.m. 

Both classes will meet in the Commons Room.  The suggested donation is $5 per person per class.  Most people in yoga classes bring their own mats, but there will be extras available.  Wear clothes to move around in, and prepare to bring positivity and balance into your lives!  Also consider bringing socks and a jacket as it tends to be cool in that room.  If you have questions, please email Cynthia Haas at cynthia@balanceyourlifeyoga.com, or call 828-295-2319.

Multi-Level Class from beginning to level 2.  Our goal is for all participants to feel successful no matter the experience level.
