Well lets try this again. We have tried Sermon central and Podcasts and even iTunes and to be honest none of them fit our needs to get our sermons out to our audience. So I'm going old school on this one. A MASS EMAIL LIST! If you would like to start recieving the weekly recorderd sermon either comment below or shoot me an E-Mail with the subject line (Sermon Email subscribe) at Johnslavin16@Gmail.com and I will gladly add you to our growing list. This will also enable you to share these sermons easier by simply forwarding them to you friends, families and coworkers. Plus the best part...ITS FREE!!! Look forward to hearing from you all. Spread the word.
Blessings and Love

The opening services of Redeemer Anglican turned out to be a tremendous blessing. We held the first service in a parishioners home but quickly out grew that space. We have been blessed that Trinity Church NWA offered their space for use last Sunday. We truly are a mission on the move. Please check this blog, our website Redeemer Anglican, and our Facebook page Facebook for times and locations in the future. We will have plenty of opportunities for service both in this mission and in the Bentonville community. Also feel free to Email me at Johnslavin16@gmail.com if you have any questions. The Lord is doing great work in NW Arkansas! Come Join us in our mission to reach ALL of NW Arkansas with the transforming love of Jesus Christ!
Blessings and love,

To Be a Christian: An Anglican Catechism
The Catechism was unanimously approved for trial use by the College of Bishops on January 8th, 2014. Over the next two years the Task Force will be receiving feedback and passing it on to the College of Bishops to further refine this resource. You can make a recommendation to the Task Force by sending an email to:firstname.lastname@example.org
This catechism (a text used for instruction of Christian disciples) is designed as a resource manual for the renewal of Anglican catechetical practice. It presents the essential building blocks of classic catechetical instruction: the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments (the Decalogue). To these is added an initial section especially intended for those with no prior knowledge of the Gospel. Each section is presented in the question-and-answer form that became standard in the sixteenth-century because of its proven effectiveness. Each section is also set out with its practical implications, together with biblical references.
You can download free PDF copies here .... http://anglicanchurch.net/?/main/catechism
And you can pre order a nice leather edition pictured above from amazon ... http://www.amazon.com/To-Be-Christian-Anglican-Catechism/dp/0986044121/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1400912315&sr=8-1&keywords=Acna+Anglican
This is an excellent resource for teaching the faith and I highly recommend it!
Blessings and love

Greetings in Christ our risen Lord!
This Easter I have tremendous news! I announced this on the St. Gabriel's Facebook page. To save time I'm reposting it here..
"We are very excited to announce that very soon we will be launching Redeemer Anglican, a ministry of St. Gabriel's Church. Redeemer will be offering services to the Bentonville area as well as opportunities for fellowship and study in our ongoing mission to bring the transforming love of Jesus Christ to ALL of NW Arkansas. Dinner, fellowship and Evening prayer will be held at 6:30pm Wednesday evenings along with two services of Holy Eucharist a month following catechesis beginning at 4pm on Sundays. Please join us in spreading the word by clicking on the link below and "liking" the page. Then share it with all your local friends! Blessings, and may God who has begun this great work bring it to fulfillment!"
Please check out the Redeemer Anglican Facebook page here…Redeemer Anglican
We will post the location and date, both on this blog, and on the various Facebook pages "St. Gabriel's" "Redeemer" and "FrJohnslavin" when we narrow down the date for the first gathering. So please check back often.
Services will be held at a location down near the square in Bentonville.
There is a dire need for an Anglican church in the Bentonville area. This will allow people in surrounding cites like Rogers, Bella Vista and even Missouri to attend services more easily.
The joyful fact is we have been attracting lots of younger families to St. Gabriel's and its not always convenient to gather up the young ones hours before service, stuff them in the car and drive down to Springdale!
This also allows us to fulfill the charge given to us by the founding Archbishop of our province (ACNA) Robert Duncan "To bring the transforming Love of Jesus Christ to all of North America!"
We also will be fulfilling the mandate he started to plant 1000 churches in North America in the first five years of our provincial founding. This has been very close to being realized in the ministry of anglican 1000. And we at St. Gabriel's are very happy to play our small part in that vision.
