A Facilities Workday Around the Corner

This Saturday is our June Facilities Workday and there are lots of jobs to do! Our intrepid facilities volunteers will begin with coffee and donuts around 7:30 am and then get to business with these tasks that help make our campus beautiful and welcoming.

  • Irrigation repairs: Presmick Patio, outside of Multipurpose Room, and Sanctuary slope
  • Inspect possible leak on preschool playground
  • Repair Festival Garden fountain
  • Tree stump removal (drill holes and put in Epsom salt)

We're so grateful for the care that volunteers give to our property! Do YOU feel an itch to get outside and work? You're welcome to pitch in.
Our Community This Week

On Thursdays in June, we're resting! This week, look for a short introduction to The Nap Ministry, live on the Shadow Rock Facebook page. Catch this short video live or tune in later to watch the recording.

Let's get ready! We will be gathering for a congregational meeting on Sunday morning, June 20 at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary.

Happening Now~
Through the summer, Ktizo UCC, a sibling congregation in the Southwest Conference, is opening their church home for people seeking water and safety from the extreme heat. They have done this for several years and they are inviting us to participate in this life saving ministry.
