Announcements June 1 – 7

Sunday, June 9:  ADULT EDUCATION – in the Fireplace Room, 9 am. We begin with Genesis. It’s an engaging, demanding, puzzling, and sometimes disturbing text.

Just come, in spirit, mind, and heart.

Homeless Prevention Council:  Let’s go for a walk and support the Homeless Prevention Council!  Getting more involved in our community was one of the overwhelming responses the Vestry received during ReImagining.
