Two Good Things That Happened in June

1. We began the non-festival half of the church year. After a focus on the life of Christ from Advent through Pentecost, we've now shifted our focus to the life of the Christian. The parament (altar decoration) color changes and special liturgies might not be as frequent, but this season is no less important for our spiritual lives.

2. The work of our Rooted & Mowing team kicked into high gear with planting, lawn mowing, weeding, mulching, and more. Rooted & Mowing is especially looking for teens and adults who can help with weeding and watering this summer. Sign up for a week (or more!) and then come anytime during that week. Click here for more details or to sign up.
