Rock the Week
Hey Shadow Rock, let's do this!

As we move into August, here are dates and information for our fellowship:

  • Freethink Article on optimism This past Sunday, Pastor Ken shared information from an article about reasons to be optimistic in 2022. Part of our connection is being hopeful together.
  • Zoom Security To keep online worship free from disruptions, we'll be refreshing the link frequently. Please get in the habit of joining from the Sunday morning worship email button. We don't want you languishing in the wrong Zoom space! If you have questions about virtual worship, please check in with Karen.
  • Local COVID-19 cases are on the rise. We're strongly recommending mask wearing right now. Please be mindful of our fellowship's health and follow guidelines regarding isolation and social distancing. The CDC has this helpful calculator for when you've tested positive for COVID-19.
  • This Sunday, August 14: Sermon Re-Boot Join Pastor Ken for a deeper dive into the sermon topic immediately following worship in the Narthex.
  • September 11: Kick-Off for Spiritual Formation It's a little 'old-fashioned,' but we're planning a return to Sunday morning spiritual formation for adults and children the Sunday following Labor Day. Save the date!
Shadow Rock Preschool

We're not just being proud when we say we have the best preschool in the Valley. Generations of families have trusted the play-based, inclusive curriculum and loving faculty of Shadow Rock Preschool. The picture to the right is the Unicorn Class reading nook. Isn't it lovely and cozy? SRPS has openings for 4 year old children who are turning 5 this school year. For more information or to schedule a tour, email Preschool Director Liz Curry.
Congregational Care

We're saddened to share the news of Ethel Johnson's death recently. She was 95, and a part of our congregation for many years. No services are planned. If you would like to reach out to the family, please contact Lois in the church office to get the address.
Sacred Sites

Join the Sacred Sites team for lunch and learning on September 18 after worship.

The Big Bang Theory is the leading explanation for how the universe began. Just imagine: the universe as we know it started with an infinitely hot and dense single point that inflated over the next 13+ billion years to the still-expanding cosmos that we know today.

On 9/18, we will meet in Smith Hall following worship. Pastor Ken will lead our discussion of creation and the theology of the sacred. Arlene Dominguez will review the fall Sacred Sites schedule. Everyone is welcome.
