Special Events

There are a lot of special events coming up in our community, and I want to make you aware of some of them:
*This Sunday we will celebrate the baptisms of five of our young people, and the graduation from high school of three others.  It’s also Commitment Sunday in our stewardship emphasis (as you read above) and we’ll share a meal together after worship.
*On Sunday, May 21, we celebrate the ministry that Jill Michel has shared with us since August of 2014.  Jill will preach that day, and we will honor and thank her and her family in a reception following the service.
*On Sunday, May 28, I will be attending a college reunion (my first in decades!) in Connecticut and I’m pleased to let you know that Dan Moseley will be preaching and leading worship that day. On this day we also begin our summer worship format.  Our children’s ministries, Young Disciples and Worship & Wonder, will not meet during the summer. Children of Worship & Wonder age (3 years through first grade) will be led in an age-appropriate activity in fellowship hall during the sermon time.
*Our summer worship series, which begins June 4, will focus on creation.  We look forward to the opportunity to look at the world around us and consider how we interact with and care for creation. More on that as time goes on.
I am excited about the ways that God is leading us and looking forward to see what will come next.  It’s an honor to be on this journey with you.
