Upcoming events at Incarnation!

BLUE JEANS AND BLACK TIE

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH AT 8:00 PM

IN THE NAVE

TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!

 

On Saturday, September 10, we will put on our blue jeans and our bling to come listen to our own world-famous director of music, Robert Henry. Robert will entertain us while we sip bubbly, eat desserts and bid on silent auction items.
Besides the wonderful music, there will be all kinds of great silent auction items to bid on.  The most exciting is a painting by our own Carolyn Goldsmith, a talented and nationally known artist.  Check out her website and see her beautiful work here
There are other items, such as a hair make over at Michael's for Hair, a case of wine from Mountain Fresh, dinners out, dinners cooked by special people, a Fall Clean up Package, a condo at the beach, and much more.
All proceeds go to our amazing Retreat Center at Lake Logan.  After much hard work, the six-digit mortgage obligation has been paid.
Now it's time to spruce it up.
Camp Henry, which has transformed the lives of our Big Brothers and Sisters whom we sent on scholarship, will benefit from our contribution.
Those of us on committees, vestry, retreat programs will benefit from  refreshed and renewed cabins and meeting rooms. It is a great opportunity to give to a place so many of us love and call the "front porch of Heaven."
Tickets are $100, and will be on sale at the church office all this week and at the door on Saturday.
