Incarnation 100 Presentation

July 21 – after 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. services

Our amazing congregation contributed their time, treasure, and talents to make the 2019 Incarnation 100 a resounding success! We had 165 riders this year, which is fewer than in 2018, but the level of donations raised by these riders increased over last year. The final financial numbers are still being tallied, but we know that we raised a significant amount of money to assist services provided by The Living Room, Sunday Open Table, and St. Andrew’s Food Program. We very literally could not have done this without of all of you. As we often hear people say, “It takes a village…” Well, in our case, our congregation is that village, and you all rose to the occasion once again this year to help those in our broader community who have no place to call “home.” You are all wonderful lights in our community!

Please join us in Farlander Hall after the 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. services on Sunday, July 21, to see a presentation and hear more detailed information about the funds raised by the 2019 Incarnation 100.

Altar Flower Donations

Every Sunday beautiful flowers adorn our altar, arrangements created by our Altar Guild. If you would like the opportunity to contribute to our flower fund in thanksgiving for, in memory of, or in honor of a loved one, you may sign up for a specific Sunday, make a donation of $50 to the flower fund, and the name(s) of those you wish to honor will be printed in the bulletin for that Sunday. This is a lovely way to both support our flower ministry and remember or honor a loved one.

There are two ways to sign up for altar flowers:

  1. Write your name on the flower chart in Farlander Hall and mail your check to the office or place in the collection plate. Make sure to write “flower donation” in the memo field. Send an email to the address below and say who your donation is for.
  2. Fill out the online form.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact flowers@incarnationsantarosa.org.

Who We Are

The Church of the Incarnation is an inclusive community of faith, following Jesus Christ as a parish of The Episcopal Church. We are a downtown urban church. We recognize that Christ has no body now on earth but ours, and we are committed to carrying out Christ’s charge to love one another through service, worship and prayer. Our abiding values are those expressed in our Baptismal Covenant with Jesus Christ, and those values guide us in our life of faith.

We believe that Christ calls us to strive for justice and peace among all people while respecting the dignity of every human being. While we are partners in God’s work throughout the world, we are called in particular to respond to the needs for both bodily and spiritual nourishment of the community where we live, work, and worship.

The Episcopal Church is a member of the global Anglican Communion which has a common root in the Church of England. Anglican churches follow a middle path between the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant denominations. The Episcopal Church includes diocese in the United States, Mexico, Central America, Ecuador and Taiwan.
