The week just flew by and here we are, in June! Despite its 31 days, May seemed to fly by! Earlier this week, as the calendar page flipped to June, I celebrated my 2nd anniversary as your pastor here at FPC. That has flown by in a similar way as the month of May! I continue to give thanks to God for each day of these last two years - my life, and my family's life, is richer for being a part of this Fellowship Family. I'm humbly proud of all that we have done, by God's grace and the work of the Holy Spirit, in this time and can't wait to see where God is calling us next!

As the calendar turns to June, there are THREE important events that are coming up this weekend - one on Saturday and two on Sunday!

Tomorrow is a wonderful opportunity for food and fellowship over the lunch hour - come to the church from 11-1 on Saturday afternoon for lunch, sponsored by the Programs Committee! And then, on Sunday, is worship and a post-worship brunch, along with a final effort for the collection drive for the Barrels for Liberia.

It seems like a lot to cram into a weekend, with some even maybe asking "why do both?" - why not!?! The picnic, which has been planned by the Programs Committee for some time now, is to serve as a celebration of our Fellowship Family and its relationship to the neighborhood. I encourage you to come and to invite a friend or two and bring a side dish or dessert to share. The opportunity on Sunday came up as an invitation from our own church member, Wynston Walker, since his uncle, Rev. Dr. Charles Ledlum-Bates, is joining us for worship on Sunday. The brunch is being hosted by the Bates family (Wynston's mother's side of the family) - we will be welcoming other members of the Carysburg, Liberia, community to our congregation on Sunday as well - both are excellent opportunities to share in a meal for different wonderful reasons. I hope you do make time to come to both. The details are included later in this newsletter. We will also be collecting the Pentecost Offering of the PC(USA), one of our denomination's five special offerings collected during the year.
Because we will have so many new faces in our congregation this Sunday, it is the perfect time to introduce the Outreach Committee's latest project - nametags for everyone! These professionally produced nametags have our new FPC logo and a magnet backing. The Committee is introducing them on Sunday and they can be stored on the beautiful display, created by Marilyn Delafield. While it will mainly live in the narthex for you to store them from week-to-week, the display is able to be moved from the narthex to the fellowship hall - and anywhere else in the church that we may think it needs to be! I hope you use them so all may know with whom they are talking from week to week!
On Sunday, we will worship together again, in person or online - I hope to see you on Sunday...after the picnic on Saturday!

Until the weekend,
Pastor Kathryn
