Losing a spouse is one of the most difficult experiences a person can go through, and it can leave you feeling lost and without direction. Join us for a symposium for widows and widowers as we explore ways to finding meaning an purpose again.
Saturday, October 21 from 9-11:30 am
Speaker: Brett VanTol, Licensed Psychologist
Do you have a special talent or skill that you could share with others in need? How do you Shine for Jesus? Maybe you volunteer in UPstreet or a local food bank. Perhaps you visit shut-ins or make meals for people. We would like to hear from you! List ways in which you could use your time to help others in our congregation and/or our community. We will contact you as a need arises to see if you might be available at that time. Thank you and keep shining your light!
Examples: Babysitting, volunteering in the church nursery, gardening, praying for others, walking someone's dog, tailoring/sewing, helping someone with their phone or computer, visiting, plumbing, electrical, making bunk beds or ramps, painting, sending cards, counseling, tax preparations, photography, carpooling, or just spending time with someone.
Hundreds of small wooden crosses were distributed in June. This summer, we ask that you take a cross and leave it some place for another person to find. (And take a picture of your cross if you can!) After that, share with us by leaving a short note telling us where you left your wooden cross and tell us why you chose this spot. Don't have a cross? Need another one? See the welcome desk at church and Shine 365!
On Sunday, September 10th our congregation was welcomed at the Lynn Sherwood Stadium to participate in a time of Worship, Fellowship and Song. It was a beautiful morning with our community and the power of God's presence was felt by all who attended. Thank you to Pastor Marshall for sharing God's word with us and to Pastor Chris Walker and all of our Praise and Worship team and tech for allowing us to enjoy your talents and gifts.
