June Food Pantry Collection

foodpantry

 

During the month of June, we will be collecting food for our pantry here at the church. Our food pantry is open on Mondays and Wednesdays. While small, it is a big help to those in our neighborhood who run short on food and assistance during the month.

Your donation of canned meats, canned vegetables, pasta, pasta sauce, and peanut butter will go directly to feed those in our neighborhood.

You can bring canned goods to the sanctuary lobby on Sundays.

Family Movie Night

Join us Friday evening as we gather to share a meal and watch the new Disney film, Zootopia. There is plenty of action for the kids, some humor for the adults, and a great message about acceptance for everyone.

Bring the dish you are best at making (or buying!) to share. We will begin eating at 6:30 and start the movie at 7:00 PM. We’ll see you there!

Rice Bagging Event

Join the Women’s Fellowship on Thursday, June 2nd at 12:30 (or join us for brown bag lunch at 12:00) to bag 1 lb. bags of rice for CROS Ministries.

Beginning on Pentecost Sunday, May 15th, we will spin a few of Billy Joel’s greatest hits in our new worship series, The Gospel According to Billy Joel. While Joel describes himself as an atheist, his songs often reveal the spiritual longing of regular folks. Join us as we explore the sacredness of everyday life with the following songs:

 

May 15 “She’s Got a Way” Pentecost and the movement of the Spirit

May 22 “The River of Dreams” The Spiritual Search

May 29 “Goodnight Saigon” Memorial Day, War, and the Promise of Peace

June 5 “Just the Way You Are” We don’t need to go changin’ to please God

June 12 “Piano Man” and/or “The Stranger” Becoming our authentic selves in God

June 19 “The Entertainer” Psalm 127:1-2 Father’s Day and the expectations of men in our culture
