Cape Christian Fellowship
Living with no regrets requires that we travel light. We don't accumulate resentment, guilt or fear. Rather, we shed it through forgiveness, grace and hope. This week, Pastor Wes Furlong will speak on "Overcoming Baggage." We'll look at two critical experiences that help us redeem our past and maximize the present.
Sunday contemporary worship times are 9 and 11 a.m. There are classes for children and youth and a safe and caring nursery provided during all worship gatherings. The EDGE High School gathering is held on Wednesdays 7-8:30 p.m
Starting on Jan. 10, at 5 p.m., Saturday evening contemporary worship celebration will be added. There will be a nursery and classes for all children through middle school available.

Epiphany Episcopal Church
After five and one-half years, The Rev. Dr. Stan Dull and his wife, Margie, will be leaving Epiphany Episcopal Church in Cape Coral to enter retirement as a parish priest for the second time. He first retired as Vicar of Ascension Episcopal Church in Parkesburg, Penn, and full time secondary English Teacher in the Octorara Schools, Atglen, Penn. Father Dull and his wife, Carol, moved from Pennsylvania to Punta Gorda in 2000. However, it was not long before he was called back into parish ministry at Epiphany.
Father Dull's retirement will leave a deep hole to fill. His pastoral care, his counseling and his sermons will be difficult to replace, we will miss them.
