This Week's Service:        
The Hand Sanitized Sign of Peace
Rev. Peter House will share with us on this day. 
This Week's Drop-In Discussion: Emotions and Emoticons.  Through use of punctuation, emoticons and icons, we can control the expression of our emotions over the Internet.  Wouldn't it be great if we could do the same thing in real life?  Shirley Bond will lead a discussion.

sanctuary Renovation Update and Special Request  


The end of the current renovation adventure is finally in sight.  We are feverishly preparing for our first Sunday service back in the sanctuary on July 7.  The new cushions are in place, except for 7 that were back ordered.


Special Request:  Please avoid bringing coffee into the sanctuary.  We must do everything in our power to prevent coffee stains on the new cushions.  These stains are very difficult to clean as we have learned the hard way with the lounge carpet.  If you want to have liquid on hand at all times, please use water.  


Many thanks for your understanding,

Alain Perregaux
