Our Sunday morning Bible study, currently making their way through the Psalms, were hosted for brunch at Richmond Schmidt’s home before summer vacations begin. A wonderful time was had by all!
A group gathered on June 2nd to bag up 200 pounds of rice for Christians Reaching Out to Society. Those bags will go to food pantries and distributed to families in need. Thank you to our Women’s Fellowship and Missions Committee!
We had a great first confirmation session this Sunday. Jada James, Michelle Ellis, Jordyn James, Pastor Jason, and Trish Fairbanks will spend the next six months learning the basics of our life in Christ together and learning tools to practice our faith. This month we talked about prayer. Together, we paraphrased The Prayer of Our Savior into language that is meaningful to us.
Our Father-Mother who roams around us,
May your name be held in the highest regards,
May your ideal become reality.
May your intentions for us come to life
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us what we need to sustain our life.
Forgive us our wrongdoings
as we forgive those who do wrong to us.
Guard us from things that tempt us
and save us from trouble.
May your plans, intentions, and ideals be remembered forever.
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.
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!
