To our Community:

After much input from our 301 Faith Partners ministry leaders, we have decided to hold our scheduled 5:00 pm Masses in person beginning June 6th (this Sunday) and provide Zoom for those who cannot attend in person.
 
We are offering just Bread for Communion, and requesting all to wear masks. We also ask that families maintain a 6 ft separation within the church. We can accommodate up to 50 people (a 301 Faith Partners decision.) No registration is needed.
 
How wonderful that we can be together and celebrate remotely! 'See' you Sunday!
June 6 Sunday Service
at 5:00 pm
**in Sanctuary and on Zoom **

 Why not call the moment of certainty, the fleeting moment
When everything that ever lived is right behind my pounding heart,
Why not call this moment: 
Beat-of-the-thousand-wings-of-God-inside-my-chest. . . .
Mark Nepoe

From Your Finance Committee - Year End Financial Summary May 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021
Our fiscal year ended April 30th and like most organizations, it was difficult to estimate the financial impact of this past year.

It was decided early-on in the pandemic that we would use the previous year's budget and carefully watch our expenditures and income. We had heard that many churches' income was substantially impacted.

By end of year 2020 our income was on par with our significantly reduced expenditures - a blessing. We were able to accomplish this by the continued support from our generous community and by avoiding many costs such as; travel to the national synod, reduction in office, hospitality, and liturgy expenses.
 
The leadership council thought long and hard on how best approach our stewardship campaign to prepare for our coming year......

Thank you, thank you all!
We are so blessed to have so many of our members volunteer to help serve the families in the FHN program. We had a two week rotation this time, & almost every position was filled.

Unusually, we had few families to serve , but we wish to thank the following people who stepped up to volunteer👍: Anne Beavan & Ralph Dorland, Susan & Jim Berry, Becky & Matt Chavez, Jean & Tom Christen, Cindy & David Cloyd, Chris Gaebler, Lisa Jones, Sandra & Dick Life, Jodi Merrill, Lisa & Tom Moos, Jared Orsi, Joan & Bill Smith, Mary Vogl, Jim & Lynne Barnes. Muchas gracias, obrigada, merci beaucoup, danke, arigato❤️🙏
