Let's Put Our Heads Together
(Sorry, couldn't resist the bad pun!) It's time for the Shadow Rock Census! As mentioned in previous weeks, we're updating our church records. This involves hundreds of households and we want to try and do this as efficiently as possible.

If you can take five minutes to fill in your household's contact information, it would save our volunteers a phone call! We're thrilled with the response from last week and can't wait to hear from everybody else. Please help us out by clicking the yellow button below and filling out the short form.

Thanks to all who participated in our Congregational Meeting on June 28th. It was certainly different meeting virtually on Zoom, but the turnout was great, and the meeting went smoothly! If you missed it and would like to look at the minutes, you can find them here.
We may be apart physically, but we're still staying connected! If you have a birthday, wedding anniversary, or other good news to share, we invite you to email them to Karen each week by Thursday for inclusion in the following Sunday's worship service. We want to celebrate YOU!
Focus On....
Each week we'll be spotlighting an organization or site that's worth looking into. If you would like to suggest a future group to feature, please contact Abeth .

Interfatih Power and Light is a religious response to global warming and climate change issues. This national organization has a chapter here in Arizona , and their website has several resources as well as ways to take action and get involved.
Reminders While the Campus is Closed
  • Our mail service is on hold and being picked up more sporadically. If you have important mail that needs our attention, please contact Heidi and she will give you an alternate address so we can receive it quicker.
  • If you need any assistance securing groceries, medicine or toiletries, please contact us via email. We want to do our best to make sure everyone is safe and well.
  • One of the most important things we can do for each other during this time of isolation and distance is to keep in touch. We're a very social church family, and it's hard to be apart from one another! Try to take time every day or two to call, text, or email one of your Shadow Rock friends.
