Engaging with hurting and needy populations can be challenging and confusing. If you have a heart to help others, but often aren't sure what to do, please attend this workshop! We'll discuss what you can expect when helping people with mental health and substance use issues, as well as how to keep your compassion AND know when to say "no". It is our hope that as a result of attending this workshop, your questions will be answered and you will feel more confident in helping others. This workshop will be held during the Dean's Forum at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 9th and will be led by Rev. Mike and LeeAnn Gumulauskas.

It takes many people, working together, to successfully honor the families during funeral proceedings.  This past week we held two separate funeral services and we would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU!  Thank You to the custodians, to the landscaping team, to the flower guild, the ECW bakers, the organizers, dishwashers, to Bishop Jay, Fr. Greene, Fr. Zook, Rev. Lorenze, and Rev. Van Es.  The feedback from the families was that of extreme gratitude for a job well done.  This is where the love of Christ shines through each and every one of you and touches the hearts of others.

We are blessed to be on the Valley Gospel Choir performance route this year.  On June 9th, Pentecost, at the end of the 10:00 a.m. service, this inter-denominational choir group will be performing 3 songs for us.  Please come and help to welcome this community choir.
