Marked With the Cross of Christ Forever

Jeremiah knew the frustration of having his words rejected. Jesus declares that his words may not bring peace, but division. In baptism we are buried with Christ that we may walk in newness of life. As we take stands for the sake of justice and lose our lives for the sake of others, we need not be afraid. The hairs of our head are counted. In baptism we are marked with the cross of Christ forever.

Weekend Theme:
Christa Fisher, Leader for Cross-Generational Learning Time
"Spend a weekend in nature exploring this divinely sanctioned space. Together we will explore and experience the gift of Sabbath, the joy of being without expectation. While there will be many opportunities for multi-generational learning and doing, nothing is required. You are free to spend yours days engaged in arts and crafts, biblical study, nature exploration, swimming, hiking, fishing, or simply lying in the sun, listening to the birds sing and the children laugh. This weekend is your Sabbath - it has been established so that you might experience rest and joy!”

At the recent congregational meeting, two special initiatives were approved to be funded through the gifts committee:
1) part time youth pastor for the next year
2) repair of the front rock wall and improving drainage near the front door to prevent water from reaching our elevator shaft and basement hallway.

The Gifts Committee will match donations to these projects. Please check the bulletin and June Dialogue for details about how you can contribute to these important initiatives.

As always, thank you for your support of these types of special initiatives through the gifts committee. Jim St. Vincent, Chairperson, Gifts Committee
