Leisurely Walk
Take a walk with us on the paved trail that starts near the side door of the lower level at church and takes us to Drace Park on Cedar Valley Road at Clayton Road. Meet out front of church by the kitchen. [We have another close by mini-walk we want to show you too!]

Worship with us this Sunday!
Worship with us at 10am out back at church – or on Facebook Live or later on YouTube. Our scriptures will be Psalm 20 (God’s commitment to us) and Mark 4:26-34 where Jesus teaches about seeds and growth. What are we planting and producing as a church?
Our Annual Congregational Meeting: Leadership will take place immediately following worship to elect new leaders and to commission them alongside continuing leaders. We will also be sharing updates from our Covid Team and Church Council about this Transition Time and worship plans.

As always, we welcome your gifts of non-perishable food items for our hungry neighbors. The Give-A-Meal Table is located in the main entryway. Circle of Concern has let us know that their critical needs right now are cereal, soup, canned veggies, snacks and jelly.

Since it’s LGBTQ+ Pride Month and St Louis Pride was canceled again this year, please consider wearing rainbow-colored, neon or other bright colors this Sunday!

The other day, Dexter and I saw a Google Maps Street View Car in our neighborhood – very exciting! Though this two minute video is a few years old, it is very exciting to think about all the places you can see because of the adventurous spirit and the drive for diversity and unity so many of us have. Have you ever searched for your own street and/or a place in the world you’ve visited or always wanted to see?

Why did the robot go on vacation?
He needed to recharge his batteries.
Where do sheep go on vacation?
The Baaa-hamas. 
Where do sharks go on vacation?
And this is it. This is the life we get here on earth. We get to give away what we receive. We get to believe in each other. We get to forgive and be forgiven. We get to love imperfectly. And we never know what effect it will have for years to come. And all of it…all of it is completely worth it. ~Nadia Bolz-Weber
