LET'S BUILD A JULY FOURTH FLOAT
Casual Dress for Worship this Sunday Recommended

Piedmont Church is entering a float into this year's Piedmont Community Fourth of July parade. We are planning on an old-fashioned float using crepe paper so all ages can participate.

We are making a dove for world peace. We will be working on it in the church parking lot Saturday, July 2, 9am - 3pm and Sunday, July 3, after worship.

On Sunday, we will provide grilled hot dogs, lemonade, chips and popsicles for all who participate. Everyone is welcome to come to join in the fun. 

On the actual day of the parade, we would like to have people walk with the float. A limited amount of t-shirts have been ordered that say Community is Our Middle Name. Also, we thought it would be fun to have some signs and some people dressed up in clothes you would wear on the Mexico Mission Trip.

NEW IN WORSHIP
IT'S PERSONAL

Beginning this Sunday, July 3, Steve Schibsted, Don Ashburn, Scott Kail and Steve Main will share stories of their faith in a July sermon series. Each will take a Bible verse that is meaningful to them, and will connect it to their personal faith journey.

Experience in-person, and online, beginning at 10am.
Your email may require you to CLICK MORE at the bottom of this page to continue reading. We could write less, but there's no fun in that!

REFUGEE TASK FORCE UPDATE
Task Force Seeks Continued Assistance for Putrenkov Family

By Scott Willis

Wheels in the Gap
A generous member of our church has come forward with a gift of a car that will transfer to the Putrenkovs in 4-6 weeks. We are hoping that someone might be able to loan the family a car to cover this 4-6 week gap. If this type of arrangement would work for you, contact Megan Palsa at meganpalsa@gmail.com to coordinate the details.

Odds & Ends Jobs
We continue to look for small handy man/woman jobs that would be appropriate for Alex and Maryna. If you have something around the house that is just not getting done, please reach out. Contact Judy Wright 

For more information about the Refugee Task Force, contact Scott Willis (510) 409-2832 or Bob Wright (510) 333-3165

GOOD LOOKIN' OUT

Shortly after worship, Winston, pet of Doorkeeper Jay Foreman, jumped up on a chair in the Altar Guild room, apparently beginning his vigil for our return this Sunday.

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Romans 8:25
