Sunday Morning Bible Study
The Cranmer Room at 9:15 am
Adults of all ages gather to hear, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the great big over-arching story of the Bible. Our Scripture lessons are from the parish wide E100 Challenge. What's the E100? Our parishwide reading plan through Eastertide. Get ready? Download your reading plan here.
Daily Bible Reading Plan
Your favorite spot, your best time
Once you have chosen the place and the time of the day, find that trustworthy Bible and crack it open. Start with John's Gospel. Read one chapter a day. Before you dive in, ask the Holy Spirit to help you read it. Reflect on what you've read. Keep a diary or a journal of thoughts about what you have read. (Write down your questions or new insights that you discover. You may want to write down the people as well as the churches or ministries you're praying for. Come back and review. See how God answers our prayers.)
For folks who want to follow along with the Daily Office, you certainly choose well. You can find that it begins on page 934 of the Book of Common Prayer. And you can simply follow the Daily Devotional guide found in the Prayer Book (Book of Common Prayer, pages 136-140.)
Also, Scripture Union has tremendous resources to help you get started. For more information visit them at scriptureunion.org
20s30s Young Adult Ministry Group
This is a NEW group that will start this December!
This is a NEW group that will start this December! The Twenties and Thirties group is an open invitation fellowship and service group at St. Richard's Episcopal Church of Round Rock. If you are single, married, family with young children, divorced, students...we welcome ALL Young Adults.
The 20's/30's group will participate in local happy hours, service projects, Bible studies and anything the Lord calls our hearts to do! The combination of a relaxed atmosphere, good food and drink and informal theological discussions make for a great young adult ministry experience-this is my hope for the 20's/30's young adult ministry group! We are excited to start this new journey here at St. Richard's!

Wednesday Morning Women's Bible Study
Meets every Wednesday morning
We will be starting a new study on October 24, 2012 from 9:30-11:30 for 10 weeks in the Ridley Room. We will be studying: Beloved Disciple: The Life and Ministry of John by Beth Moore "Every disciple and early follower of Christ left a legacy for future believers. John's legacy was love. Perhaps like no other disciple, John understood that relationship is the point. Every command of Christ and call to obedience is to enhance relationship and place the recipient in a posture the Giver can bless. This study is about finding our way to the heart of Jesus and reclining so closely that our pulse begins to throb in tandem, loving what He loves and hating what He hates." Childcare will be provided. For more information, please contact Kelly Moreno at email@example.com or 733.9590.
The Daughters of the King
The First Wednesday evening of every month at six o'clock Cranmer Room
The Order of the Daughters of the KIng (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. We have made a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as Lord of our lives. We are an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as Daughters of the King is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God's love throughout the world.
