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.

One Good Thing That You Might Not Know About

1. Renovations on our K2 classrooms are well underway! Due to overwhelming demand, we'll be expanding to two K2 classrooms next year, which is a wonderful outreach opportunity. However, we still need your help to fund these renovations as well as purchase new furniture, toys, and other supplies. Click here for more information and to donate.

Summer Sermon Series

Beginning Sunday, June 19
When Jesus walked among us, the Bible consisted only of what today we know as the Old Testament. Of the 39 books that comprise it, the last 12 are perhaps the least known or understood for us as New Testament Christians. This summer, we will draw our sermons from the Bible Jesus read and consider what God continues to teach us through each of these little-known but important Minor Prophets.
