Weekly Update

Slow Down: The Story of Zechariah

Does your mind (or mouth) run away from you sometimes? Have you ever noticed how hard it is to slow down?

If so, then you need to hear the story of Zechariah! This week we continue looking at heroes of the faith who battled fear and found strength in God to overcome it. This week it’s the story of a father-to-be who was so worried about the details that he lost sight of the blessing. But when God taught him to be quiet for a while, his eyes were opened.

Join us this Sunday to learn how the simple act of slowing down and noticing God can change your life!

Going Deeper Class

Would you like to become more involved in church? Would you like to go deeper in your faith?

If so, there is a great opportunity coming up, specifically aimed for you! It’s a “Going Deeper Class.” It begins on Sunday, June 3 at noon for Pizza with the Pastor. Then, each of the following 3 Sundays we’ll meet at 9:45 in the Chapel. Each one will start with Pastor Jeff teaching a little about what it means to be United Methodist– what is “grace,” for instance? Then the second half will invite a different guest each week to talk about how to become more involved, topics like what a blessing it can be to volunteer or serve the poor.

If you’d like to join us even for part of it, you are welcome!

(Please RSVP for Pizza with the Pastor on June 3, though, so we can be sure you have enough. You can email by clicking here.)

Recycling Eye Glasses and Ink Cartridges

The Health & Hospitality Team are collecting old eye glasses and empty ink cartridges from your printers to be recycled.  There are boxes for each item on a table in the hallway by the office.  The eye glasses will be taken to the Lions Club to be distributed throughout our community. The ink cartridges will be sent off to be recycled with new ink, thus keeping plastic out of our landfills! Thank you in advance for all your donations!
