"How To Be Church"
July 26, 2020
I have tried to share with you a wide variety of practices and traditions of the church that help us grow in faith because we spend so much time these days without the gift of communal worship. I will be glad when we are able to gather once again for Eucharist. But I am thrilled about what our Parking Lot Sunday Liturgy allows us to do: it allows us to gather together, to sing, raise prayers, give thanks in unison, which is at the core of the Anglican tradition. Our liturgy this week will not be the formal ‘morning prayer’ but I anticipate that the Worship Team and I will consider ways to ensure that we find ways to remember and celebrate that our identity comes not just from the bread and wine we receive, the baptismal promises we make, our confirmations, weddings, ordinations, anointing of the sick and rites of burial. It is also in our common prayer that we proclaim that the kingdom of heaven has drawn near.
Please come pray with us next Sunday!
With prayers and blessings of hope, joy, and strength, Rosa+

Welcome to our website! We are the Episcopal Church of the Holy Comforter. A small parish with a big heart, located in Montgomery, Alabama. So happy you found us. We hope you find what you are looking for and we would love for you to come visit us.
We have core values that we hold very dear:
Everyone is welcome, appreciated, and valued. And, we really do mean everyone;
God calls us to minister to those who are hungry or in need. We address this with our food pantry and community garden.
Spiritual growth happens best in community. We genuinely like each other. We sing together. We eat together. We pray together.
There is enough judgement in the world. In Christ there is no condemnation. There isn’t any here either.
When you come visit us, don’t worry about how you are dressed, or how much faith you have, or don’t have. Bring your doubts, fears, and questions. We’ll walk with you, wherever you are on your faith journey, because we are all on that journey, too.
