Vacation Bible Study...for adults! TODAY
 (Childcare provided)
This summer, while  most of the weekly study and prayer groups are on hiatus, we're trying something new! For 2 more Thursdays (June 29 and July  6), we'll gather in the McClain Room from 9:30-11:00AM for bible study. Our theme? Sabbath-keeping: what does (and doesn't) Sabbath mean? What does scripture say about it? How do we honor God in it, and how does God honor us? 

All are welcome. Come when you can. No advance preparation required. The church nursery will be open and staffed starting at 9:00AM....parents of little ones need bible
study too! Questions? Email Nadia.
Food Pantry First
With children home, summer is an especially busy time at the Food Pantry. Let's help keep those shelves stocked! This month we will collect pasta sauces. There will be a table set up in the Prevost Cloister after the 8:00AM service as well as a table at the 9:30AM Maple Street Park service. Cash donations are gratefully accepted and used to purchase fresh produce. Thank you!
