Facebook Streaming: Services

Join us again this Sunday in the continuing adventure of using our beautiful new video equipment to bring our Spiritual Communion with Holy Eucharist Rite II to "the masses". We appreciate your flexibility in changing to a different feed in the middle of the service, and we'll all be saying our prayers that we don't need to do that again.

You don't have to be a member of Facebook to watch our services online. Simply click on the Facebook logo in the upper right corner (small "f" in a circle) here on the website the St. Theodore's Facebook page will load. You will probably see a screen in the middle or the bottom of the home screen that asks you if you would like to join. Ignore that and look to the left for a notice that St. Theodore's is streaming live, or if you tune in after 11:00, you can find the video of the service by scrolling down and it should be the first one you come to.

Sunday Scripture Study

This is the second week of St. Theodore's NEW Sunday Scripture Study via Zoom. The study will begin at 8:45 AM and end about 9:30 AM. Our study will be a lectionary based study using materials from "Bible Studies That Work" put out by the Episcopal Church. Each week the study covers all four lectionary readings. The study includes some explanation of each reading with daily application, and each reading analysis also includes a discussion question. We hope all who joined last week found the discussion to be lively and inspirational.

Each week, you will receive the readings and the "Bible Studies that Work" guide for that week, as well as the link for the Zoom meeting. The study guide for this week will not be ready until tomorrow, so you will be sent a separate email when that is available. The Zoom link is: 

If you have not used Zoom before, please call Chris Schaefer at (502) 454-6815 to learn about this easy and fun way to be together in community when physical community is not possible.

John Drum's Drive-By Birthday Party

If you get a chance, don't forget to stop by John Drum's house on Lake Windsor on Monday, the 10th, between 6:00 and 7:30 p.m. to wish him a Happy 100th Birthday! As I said in the invitation sent out earlier this week, he will be in his driveway in a golf cart to take in your love and cards.

The directions given before were not completely accurate. If you're coming from The Highlands, you will come down AR 340 and turn right on Chelsea, then turn left on the second Mayfair, and John's house at 77 Mayfair will be on the right-hand (lake) side of the road.

If you're coming from Town Center, you will come down AR 340 and turn left on the second Chelsea and then follow directions above.

Say a couple of prayers for good weather, and enjoy seeing John in the flesh at a safe distance.

What do the following members of our St. Theodore's church family have in common?

Angie Benham 
Helen Bladon
John Drum
Doug Farner
Marianne Farner
Bess LeFevre
Jimmie Nevener
Gwen Rakes
Elwin Roe, Jr.
William Sutton (Shirley Sutton's step-son)

Each was interviewed (some by our own Beverly Helton, Barb Knotts and Susan Porter) for the NWA Oral History Project. The easiest way to find the interviews online is to go to On the home page, click on the "Our Interviews" tab and it will take you to a new page, and if you scroll down just a bit, you will see pictures of each person interviewed in alphabetical order that makes it easy to pick the interviews you want to listen to.

You will not want to miss the unforgettable stories that some of our members, along with 50+ other area residents) shared about themselves and life in Northwest Arkansas. As Rudyard Kipling said, "If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten."
