News from the Church Office

Breakfast Potluck This Sunday: In order to give our Hospitality Team a much-needed break this summer, we will not be having a potluck meal together on Sunday, July 1 after the service. Instead, we will have a heartier breakfast time before the service begins, and food will be left out after the service ends for those who need something to munch on before they leave. Please bring a breakfast dish to share before the service!

Volunteer for The Pick: Reba’s free thrift store has been a fixture in our neighborhood for many years, providing household items, clothing and toys for families who need them. This is a dynamic ministry of our church to our community! Feel free to drop by any Saturday from 10-1 pm (basement of 731 Reba Pl., enter through alley) to check out the store, to drop off items or to shop. Consider signing up as a volunteer for the three-hour shift on Saturdays. This could be a one-time gig, a monthly gig, or you could volunteer every week. We are creating a calendar to make sure there are always two volunteers on hand at The Pick. Contact Pete B. for questions or to sign up to volunteer.

Harvest Hours: Because of the wedding this Saturday morning, June 30, the Harvest, Reba’s Food Co-op, will be closing at 11:15 am. Please shop early!

In Search of Counselors: Camp New Day is a week-long summer camp (July 7-13) in Michigan for young people who have at least one parent incarcerated. Campers explore the outdoors, build relationships, practice skills, share stories, and worship together. The camp is still looking for 2 or 3 male counselors and 1 or 2 female counselors who are over the age of 18, responsible, and willing to learn. I will be attending as the chapel coordinator – and did so last year – so I’m happy to talk more about it with anyone who is interested! You can also visit to learn more. ~Cassidhe H.
