Welcome to February

February has been Black History Month since 1976. It's a great time to learn something new and re-energize our shared commitment to racial justice.

Rock the Week

1 February 2023

Join us at North Mountain Brewery on February 5

We meet again at North Mountain Brewery (522 East Dunlap Avenue) for a gathering of our Love Seed fellowship to discuss the second affirmation of the Phoenix Affirmations regarding progressive Christianity. 

The second affirmation is:

Christian Love of God includes listening for God’s Word (Word About Life), which comes through daily prayer and meditation, through studying the ancient testimonies which we call Scripture, and through attending to God’s present activity in the world.

We gather for food and hearty discussion at 4:00 pm in the brewery's lovely new meeting space. If you have questions, please email Pastor Ken. If you're interested in purchasing your own copy of The Phoenix Affirmations, click here.

Lunch Bunch is February 8

Lunch Bunch is a friendly group of Shadow Rock women that enjoy one another's company. They gather monthly on the second Wednesday to catch up and share their joys and concerns. You're invited to join in! The next lunch is February 8 at 12:30 pm at US Egg (402 E Greenway Road). Ready to join the Bunch? Reach out to Linda Johnston.

Shadow Rock To Do List

Sometimes we have a busy week around here, and there are a couple of small things we need to tell you about... so here's your list! It's great when everyone is thinking about Shadow Rock in the middle of the week.

  1. Do you have medical equipment (wheelchairs, crutches, shower chairs) that you've borrowed and no longer need? Please make a plan to get it back so it can be loaned again. If you need some help getting it from the parking lot into the building, just click reply.
  2. Put Coffee Chat on your calendar! Our next Coffee Chat fellowship time is February 19. If you are considering hosting, please use our Sign Up Genius.
  3. Still thinking about tai chi? Peggy Hesley is offering tai chi beginning Tuesday, February 7 from noon to 1:00 pm at her home. Reach out to learn more or to let Peggy know that you're coming.

Chipotle Fundraiser for SRPS

February brings a great opportunity for a tasty meal that benefits our preschool at the same time. It's a win-win! Shadow Rock Preschool has a fundraising night at Chipotle (425 East Bell Road) from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm on February 6. Just mention the fundraiser to the cashier when you order in person or use online promo code Q9KME7K.
