June 1 Greetings

Dear Ones,


It’s Tuesday, the first day of June, and summer seems to have arrived in a burst of heat! Sunday’s outdoor service had perfect weather with 75 degrees at 10:00 a.m., but today we expect the thermometer to top out at 88 degrees, and the rest of the week seems to be following suit. Time to get out the sunscreen and to remember to hydrate: yourself and anything you are trying to grow in your yard!

Tim and I will be traveling to Los Angeles on Thursday to see our son Ben sing the title role in the Pacific Opera Project’s production of Bizet’s Don Procopio on opening night, Friday, the 4th. Needless to say, we are very proud and very excited!

If you are someone who helps with the Interfaith Meal or would like to be part of the Fellowship Ministry that will be serving food during fellowship time in the future, you need to have a Food Handler’s Card! The certification is good for two years. To make things easy, we are offering the class next week, on Wednesday, June 9 at 9:00 a.m. in our very own Fellowship Hall! Please contact Mary in the church office to sign up for the class; we need at least 10 people!

It is wonderful to have some things returning to normal, so beginning this Sunday, June 6, we will resume collection food items for the Prescott Valley Food Pantry at 8781 Spouse. Here are the items most needed:

  • canned fruits
  • canned vegetables
  • tuna
  • canned chicken
  • pasta
  • mac & cheese
  • peanut butter
  • boxed cereal
  • rice

Cash donations are always appreciated so they can fill in with items such as fresh food, breads and meats. We so appreciate Rhonda Medina for being our liaison to the food bank and for picking up the bags of groceries and taking them to the pantry.

We are currently able to use the church for small meetings of up to 25 people with masks and social distancing. Groups like Bible studies, ministry teams and the quilters can meet in the Fellowship Hall or the Sanctuary. We ask that folks continue to wear masks unless the entire group is fully vaccinated; if all are vaccinated, the group may choose to remove their masks.

I had so much fun singing “I’ll Fly Away” on Sunday; here is Allison Krause singing! Over 12 million people have watched this video.

Jasper Sea singing Gonna Shout All Over Heaven

The music in this video was made for a school project…somehow it reminds me of the looks people give when they arrive on Sunday morning and someone is sitting in their pew…

A Bible verse for today:

And I say, “O that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.

Psalm 55:6
