Weekly Church Update

(Thursday, June 16, 2022 – 10:00 am)

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Here are a few updates for you!
⦁ From Outreach/Missions Ministry Team. Snacks for Habitat for Humanity! This Saturday is the Habitat for Humanity building day. If you’re able to donate fruits: bananas, clementines, apples or baked items: muffins or sliced breads, please drop them off at the church kitchen with Habitat labeled on them today or tomorrow! Thank you so much for helping in this amazing mission. Julie Immelt Whelden

⦁ Youth Group car wash – this Saturday, the 19th from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm! Cost is $5, or donation of your choice. This is to help offset the costs of their mission trips.

⦁ There is one more plot ($20) available in our JWUMC community garden. if you are interested, please contact Sharon Mulcahy at 508-274-9127 or smulcahy1@comcast.net

⦁ This Sunday is Celebration Sunday – and we have so much to celebrate! Our Children and Youth, our music ministry, a baptism, and some parting words from me. After the service, we will have a bouncy house, the Smitty’s Ice Cream truck will be here and there will be drinks as we share in fellowship together.

⦁ Monday is a Federal Holiday, celebrating Juneteenth, so the office will be closed.

⦁ Bud and Sally Tracy will be taking their next shipment of medical supplies for Ukraine to Boston on June 21st. If you would like to donate supplies, please put them in the choir room. Also, the Changing the World change for the month of June will go to purchasing supplies.

⦁ From the Worship Ministry Team: Summer is here! Hooray!!! That means beach services will be back and the choir will be taking their summer hiatus. We are looking for some help with special music at the 9:30 service beginning July 17. If you are interested in sharing your talents with us, please see the sign-up sheet on the music bulletin board in Fellowship Hall. We are also looking for pianists, guitarist and singers to help with hymns for the 7:30 beach services. We also need greeters for the beach services as well. If you are interested in any or all of these opportunities, please contact Diane Huban at dhuban@comcast.net.

⦁ I encourage everyone to wear your name tags! This will help Pastor René learn your names faster! Plus – you might learn names too!

⦁ This Sunday will be my last day with you. Rev. Sheldon Keller will be available for pastoral emergencies, and he will be preaching on June 26th. His contact information is 860-608-7961 or parsonkeller@gmail.com.

⦁ Here is the latest prayer list for you:
– Reverends René and Wanda Perez as they are beginning to pack up and plan their move to Falmouth
– Continue to pray for the victims/families of recent mass shootings
– Continue to pray for the Ukraine/Russian situation and the people so adversely affected

Love,
Pastor Rebecca
