Rector's Forum Update

The Rector's Forum will take a break in June, to return  July 8 . All are encouraged to join Fr. Dick in exploring our other  Sunday  offerings in June.  Explore the Bible in community in the Scripture Class, pop into the Art Room, or see if Malachi's needs a hand receiving deliveries.  And, of course, you can always grab a cup of coffee and make new friends in the Parlor.

Team Trivia

Meet at the Dunwoody Tavern for fellowship and some friendly competition on  Tuesday, June 5. The game begins at  8 p.m. and we gather beforehand to claim a spot and grab a bite or a drink. Look for Sean Dolan, your host this month. 

EfM Graduates

Education for Ministry is proud to announce that Dana Dolan and Don Reddicks have successfully completed four years of study covering Scripture, church history, and theology.  This Sunday morning they are to receive their graduation certificates from the University of the South.

Name Tags

Wearing your name tag each Sunday is a form of hospitality. Please wear your name tag each Sunday. If you do not have a name tag, please sign your name on the Name Tag sign-up sheet located on the information table in the narthex. 

Personal Care Items Needed

Sundays in June and July we are once again receiving donations of personal care items for our Malachi community.

During the  Sunday service as you come to receive communion, offer a gift of:

Nail clippers

Deacon Postulant Victoria Jarvis has offered a beautiful service of foot and hand massage on Wednesdays. This service opened a window into how needed and appreciated personal care is. Bring your hotel soaps from your travels, buy an extra shampoo when you buy your family shampoo or have Amazon deliver it in bulk.   

Thanks always for being so giving and generous!

Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer will be taking a break for the summer.
