June 10 Greetings

5b5a54b5-5044-4f5b-9c33-dc78de049cb4 image

Dear Ones,

It’s Thursday in the second week of June. I have been keeping an eye out for some monsoon clouds. I listened to a weather forecast and it seems that the scientists have no idea if we are going to continue to have record drought conditions or if—after two years of little or no rain during the monsoon season—we might catch a break. I’m praying for the rain, wildfires are already cropping up; Lord send us some rain, I’m ready, we just had our roof repaired!


Twenty-six folks attended the Food Handler’s class yesterday morning! Tomorrow’s Interfaith Meal will be turkey and swiss cheese hoagies with pickles, chips, and fresh fruit salad for dessert. We can always use more help; we have been averaging 150 meals served at the twice monthly meal. The meal is served from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., so arrive by 10:30 a.m. to help serve, or earlier if you can help assemble the meals.

As I announced yesterday, we will be cutting back on our daily emails. Beginning June 21, we will be discontinuing the Monday emails. The Wednesday emails will only be sent out when we have new members to introduce. If you haven’t been featured in a Wednesday email yet and would like to be, please let Mary in the church office know and we will send you the information questionnaire that you can send on to Kimberly. Please don’t be shy, it’s a great way for new members to learn about you as well! We anticipate reducing the emails to two per week by the end of July.

Please join us next week at 9:00 a.m. for the live-streamed traditional service or the 11:00 a.m. contemporary service as we continue to go bravely into a new way of being church! No reservations or masks are required, but if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, or if you or a loved one has health issues that necessitate it, please do!


We are looking for those special types…worship team members! Can you see yourself as a greeter, an usher, a liturgist or staffing the welcome table? If you have done one of these tasks in the past or are totally new at it (we’ll train you), please let Pr. Tricia or Mary in the office know, or contact Carol Northrup at carol.northrup@verizon.net.

Rhonda Medina stopped by and picked up the Prescott Valley Food Pantry items yesterday. We are back to our first Sunday of the month food drive for the pantry. Bring your donated items to the Narthex. The most needed items include: 

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

Cash donations are always appreciated as they can fill in with items such as fresh food, breads and meats.
