Wonderful Wednesdays: People have responded strongly to my invitation to help host there outdoor picnics on third Wednesdays this summer and fall. In short, these gatherings include a simple outdoor Eucharist, food and fellowship. We’ll hold them at 5:00 in the afternoon. June 15 is booked for Grandview Lake. July 20 at the Preserve. Bent Tree on August 17 at the Bent Tree pavilion. September 21 at Tate Mountain Estates, and October 19 at the Holy Family Pavilion (tentatively). Thanks to all who’ve stepped up to host the gatherings. G. Yandell
Pete’s Porch Repairs: Unbeknownst to all of us, a tree fell on the southeast corner of Pete’s Porch barn some time ago. It knocked out the downspout on the south end of the building which began to pour water over and into the wall. Jacques LeBlanc found the damage when he was clearing out undergrowth- water had started rot and decay on the south wall, and had begun to damage the sill plate on the east wall. Jacques and Terry Nicholson (newly elected as Building Ministry Chair) undertook to repair the damage. See photos of their work. You might let them know your appreciation. G. Yandell
Adult Education: The Gospel of John. Come and learn who wrote the Gospel, when it was written, and why it is so different from the synoptic gospels! This Gospel is very different and very unlike the Synoptic Gospels. You don’t want to miss this 6 week study on how The Gospel of John is really unique. Join us for the introduction to the Gospel of John. Note-if you are unable to attend, the program will be available via Zoom. Byron Wyndham
