This Saturday, May 18th from 10 a.m. to 1 pm, we will be meeting for part 3 of our series of recent congregational meetings at the Rodman House at Church of the Holy Comforter in Vienna. Please plan to bring along your own bag lunch. Child care will be provided. Please come prepared to talk about our budget and all things money related. If you are unable to attend, it would be wonderful to get your thoughts in writing before the meeting, if possible.
Please note that right after our meeting at 1 pm (from 1 – 4 pm) , the Church of the Holy Comforter youth group is having a paper shredding and recycling of electronics fundraiser for the youth trip in the lower lot of the church. If you were looking for an opportunity to recycle some of the old electronics hanging around, or if you have some papers to shred, bring them along, and for a small donation, they will take them. Here are all the deets: http://holycomforter.com/
This Sunday, we have another in our series of our “Radiolab/Midrash” services, led by Pete. You will be invited to share about where our Faith comes from and what inspires it. In Pete’s words,
“Where does our Faith come from, what inspires it? While we should be somewhat critical of ‘proofs’ of our faith (an oxymoron), there are still things that inspire or prompt our faith. I’m envisioning an encouraging conversation that chooses the optimistic side of that insightful Anne Lamott quote ‘Doubt is not the opposite of faith. Certainty is’.”
So come ready to share your thoughts on what has inspired your faith at 10am at Jammin’ Java. If you’d like to contribute, kindly sign up here: https://docs.google.com/
