Spanish for “short course,” Cursillo is a three-day weekend—a time for renewal, refreshment and recommitment to living though Christ. Through talks given by both lay persons and clergy, small group discussions, worship, and the sacraments, participants of the weekend come away with the tools to help them lead a more Christ-centered life and advance in their walk with Christ. Participants also come out of the weekend with an expanded community to share their faith. The fruits of the Cursillo weekend are limitless.

Incarnation Men’s Fellowship
Location: Henk’s Black Forest Bakery, 5811 Blackwell St. (Behind Half-Price Books)| Time: Thursdays, 7:15 am
Our mission is to foster a community of men at Church of the Incarnation in fellowship with the Holy Ghost. The community is comprised of a cross section of men from all generations of the Parish Family — married and single, young and old. IMF is not a Bible study, per se. We have no agenda or objective other than to explore and express our interests, ideals and experiences in a congenial atmosphere and on equal terms. IMF is a community where men may explore the riches of our Parish Family and the Anglican Tradition, seek wisdom, explore callings, gain encouragement and be sent out for ministry. Finally, it is a place to return for rest after service, to share what was learned and continue to discern how to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.
Location: Marmion Conference Room | Time: Thursdays, 7 pm
INClings is an Incarnation group of all ages who meet to read and discuss works of the original Oxford Inklings and other Christian writers who were their contemporaries and predecessors. Some authors we are studying include J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Dorothy L. Sayers, T.S. Eliot, and G.K. Chesterton. New members and guests are always welcome.

Location: Parishioner Homes | Time: 4th Friday of the month, 7 pm
The Next Group consists of adults, mostly 65+, that share a pot-luck meal together each month at a parishioner’s home. It is a great way to meet other parishioners in a smaller group and home setting. Newcomers welcome! The entrée is decided by the host and co-hosts while those attending bring a side dish. Each person brings $5 defraying the cost of the entrée and wine. We notify of upcoming dinners by e-mail.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
Location: Family Ministries Room | Time: Tuesdays, 12–3 pm
Dedicated knitters turn out beautiful prayer shawls for those in need. Anyone can pick up a prayer shawl (free of charge!) to take to someone in need. Shawls can be given to anyone, anywhere, and for any reason; these are not just for parishioners. Stories about the experience of sharing a prayer shawl are amazing. Enjoy great homemade treats, fellowship and friendship with this lively group!

Location: Varies | Time: Varies
The Silver Saints, our “senior saints,” gather for luncheons and outings on a regular basis; however, they participate in a broad spectrum of ministries of Church of the Incarnation, from going on mission trips to serving on the altar guild to knitting prayer shawls to planning the next social event.
Location: Member Homes
Supper Club is a fellowship opportunity for parishioners and visitors to meet and dine with each other at a member’s home in a casual setting. It is a chance for newer members to make connections with others and a chance for any member to renew or deepen connections to our church community.

Location: Outreach Conference Room | Time: Tuesdays, 2–5 pm
Outreach Artisans is a group dedicated to “dressing” up wooden crosses (painting, gluing, beading, etc.) that are then offered for sale. All proceeds fund a scholarship fund for communicants who desire to participate in a mission trip, but can’t afford the whole cost. Join this funtastic group for a couple of afternoon projects and release the artist within! Materials are provided, and we ask that you bring any old costume jewelry to help embellish our beautiful pieces of art.
