Plan to celebrate a Healing/Eucharist service on Sunday, July 10th,    at both the 8 am and 10:30 am services that will follow the service format from the Book of Occasional Services.

Pill Bottle assistance needed!

Do you have a few minutes to spare at home to help clean or sanitize 12-18 pill bottles?  Please check the narthex, where there are bins containing bags of bottles, instructions for each step, and supplies to assist you.

Pill Bottle Ministry Just grab a bag of bottles and the instructions out of the bin to complete one step of the process (getting the labels off, getting the adhesive off, or sanitizing/packaging the bottles). If you need supplies, you'll find them in the appropriate bin too.  Then return the bottles and supplies the next time you are at church.

In loving memory . . .                            
Unto Almighty God, we commend the souls of Robert and Helen Brotemarkle, who passed from this earthly life in a sudden and tragic car accident near Wickenburg, AZ last Sunday, June 12.

Robert and Helen were very involved with St. Matthew's Episcopal Helen and Bob    Church in Raytown, MO, where Helen was the organist for 30 years. She then became the  organist at Resurrection for 3 years, immediately prior to Vaughn's arrival.  She was the person who contacted Vaughn and informed him about musical opportunities at Church of the Resurrection while he still lived in New Orleans.

After Bob and Helen retired they moved to Surprise, AZ, where they became members of All Saints of the Desert Episcopal Church in Sun City.  Their life will celebrated today, June 18,  as part of a 4 pm service at All Saints.
