ANNOUNCEMENTS

~The Trustees
Who Are You?
Hands caress leather steering wheel,
Zip through intersections.
Flash in my vision,
Fingers grip torn cardboard.
Crude lettering,
Food needed.
Who are you?

Colored globes of veggies,
Frilled leafy greens fill bins.
Brown fingers pluck,
Heat rises from dirt.
Sweaty brow,
Drips in rivulets.
Who are you?

Grand house,
Manicured lawn.
Weary face,
Cardboard box.
Tattered shirt,
Dirty fingernails.
Who are you?

Squad car passes,
Friendly waves exchanged.
Flashing lights, piercing siren,
Fear reflected in dark pupils.
Legs spread, hands on hood,
Rough pats travel up and down.
Who are you?

Gentle breeze,
Grows with might.
Blowing and storming,
Darkening force.
Feet and arms,
Move in determination.
Do you know me now?

Eyes peer,
Open wide.
Tears fill iris pools,
Shame floods a beating heart.
Sorrow bares my guilt,
How did I not know.
You are my neighbor!

~Joan Edmonds

June Collection Dates for OUR Center
Mark your calendars (and grocery lists)! We will collect food for OUR Center on Wednesday June 10 and Wednesday June 24.

April and May combined contributions totaled just over 600 pounds: the average weight of a male grizzly bear. If we have a GREAT collection month in June (say, another 600 pounds), we’d have the equivalent of a female grizzly with two cubs!

Just think, we’d have a whole family of grizzlies!

As before, the donation box will be outside the west entrance from 9 am to 2 pm.

Thank you for generosity!
Pastor David needs your info.

Many of you have asked for an updated directory with mailing address, email address and phone numbers. We are working to collect your updates and we want to thank those of you who have responded. Currently we have received only a fraction of updated info from our congregation. If you have not yet submitted your updated information, please fill out this form and email it to the office at office@heartoflongmont.org. Thank you!

We can't overstate how important it is that we receive your updated information. The church directory hasn't been updated in a number of years, and the office staff has often run into problems with old addresses and phone numbers listed. Also, because of Covid-19 restricting in-person meetings, it's important we have accurate contact information so we can communicate with you and update you on the current situation. Once all updates are completed and in place, the office will be able to make online and print directories available.

If you have any questions about this process or the directory update form, please contact the office. To those of you who have already filled out the form and returned it to us: Thank you!!
The HOL UMW Are Here For You!
Your United Methodist Women would like the congregation to know that if someone needs something and can’t--or shouldn’t--go out please contact Lynn Greenhalge at 303-651-3911 or halge@aol.com. We will get it taken care of! If you just need someone to chat with please let us know that as well! We’ll give you a “phone buddy”!

We need to stick together in these trying times and we want you to know we’re here for you, our church.
