Pick your favorite hymn! We know that you've missed singing. Please let me know what your favorite hymns are so we can sing them! Pastor Stacy
Worship in the Sanctuary: Now that we have returned to the sanctuary without any restrictions, we are in need of your help. Multiple new charts are posted for ushers, lay readers, communion assistants along with the flower chart. Please give prayerful thought to helping out with these ministry opportunities.
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I pray that you are well! As we journey through the pandemic, I know that we miss each other tremendously. We are going to work on reconnecting and sharing what has transpired in our lives over the last year.
We have eight small groups that will be forming. Each group will have ten or fewer people and will be focused on a theme. Groups meet 1-2 times a month and will end in September. As the group forms, it will determine when and where it will meet. Some groups will have more Bible study, others will have conversations and activities. I hope that you'll consider joining a group and will let me know by Monday what you might be interested in!
Craft Group led by Allison Young
This group will meet at Allison's home and do a different craft each time. These crafts are for all skill levels and will be completed in about an hour.
Walking Group led by Marcia Giordano
This group will gather for a prayer and conversation and will walk together
Kids and Families led by Rita Zorn
Even in the summer kids need space to play and caregivers need a space to talk! Here, kids can play together while the grown ups catch up and support one another.
Relaxed and Bible Study/Conversations
Two groups, one led by Sandy Thompson and the other by Bill Lucht. These groups will have some Bible study, some conversation, and lots of supporting one another.
Men's Group led by Jason Shupe
Men are invited around the campfire for drinks and conversation.
Gardening led by Ray Witt
This group will gather in the Giving Garden for talking, weeding, and tending the plants.
Dinner led by Melissa and Andy Gundlach
This group will gather for dinner, conversation, and support.
There are so many groups, and I hope you will let me know which one interests you the most! I encourage you to invite friends, because these will be safe places to ask questions, ponder life, laugh, and talk. As we reconnect and hear again how God loves us, let us visit with friends new and old.
