Announcements

July 15th - The game of Sorry

In July, three games will be paired with readings about David, a very important person in the Hebrew Scriptures. While we don’t know if David played any official types of games, he played a lot of other games in his time.

King David was often playing games, even a game of revenge. As with all game playing, sometimes he won and sometimes he lost. This meant he often had to say: “I’m sorry.” Our scripture lessons will come from Psalm 32 and 51.

July 22nd, July 29th, and August 5th - Rev. Mary Beth Moran Cross will be preaching

On August 5th we will celebrate Communion at both services.

Pastor Dick will be vacation from July 16th through August 6th. He will be attending a family wedding in Buffalo and then spending time with his mother in Buffalo and in Canada. He will also be going to Cub Scout Camp with his grandson, Donnell.

During this time, Rev. Mary Beth Moran Cross will be available if a pastoral need arises, whether it be hospitalization, a funeral or other needs. Please contact the church office or the chair of the Diaconate (Ann Raue) if you need assistance.

Mary Beth is ordained in the United Church of Christ and serves as the Chaplain/Spiritual Care Coordinator at PACE of Southwest Michigan in St. Joseph.

Youth Development Company/PAL announces new mentoring program

We are excited to announce an amazing new mentoring program and are currently seeking volunteers who are interested in spending time with our community youth.

It is a self advocacy program that occurs any time people speak of or act on their own behalf to improve their quality of life to affect personal change. Youth will develop self determination skills, which bring about increased personal satisfaction,  confidence and happiness using basic tools needed to successfully communicate clearly through our mentors.

We provide training for mentors, the curriculum, support and direction through the entire process.

Contact Mary Conley, the Mentor Program Coordinator at 269-639-2489.
