Our Open Doors
Turns out the Open Door isn't just the name of our weekly newsletter! The Deacons have begun a program of opening the sanctuary to any and all guests and visitors, for prayer, quiet time, or inspiration, on Monday and Wednesdays from 9 - 11 am. A deacon or other volunteer will be around during that time to answer any questions and to provide welcome. Thanks, Deacons, for helping us provide hospitality and holiness to our community!
Beach Church RETURNS!
This Sunday, May 29th will be the first Sunday of our summer schedule, and the beginning of our third season of worshipping at the beach! What began as a way to adapt to a pandemic has become a great blessing for our congregation and community, making it harder to choose between the amazing natural sanctuary of the beach and the beautiful, historic, and air-conditioned sanctuary at the corner of Decatur and Hughes.
Here's the plan for May 29th:
8:30 am traditional worship at Decatur Street Beach
(you can park at the church and walk the block or so to the sand) for worship with the choir and the talents of Carol Obligado.
9:30-10:30 am Coffee Hour in the Parking Lot - The Hospitality Committee invite you for goodies and fellowship. Coffee Hours will be monthly throughout the summer, so please watch this space and plan your Sunday mornings accordingly!
11:00 am Celebration Jazz service - in the sanctuary, featuring Greg Pordon and his Jazz Ensemble.
CHURCH BOOK CLUB
The Church Book Club meets again on June 12 at 5 PM in
the Fellowship Room where we will discuss Saving Fish
from Drowning by Amy Tan.
Everyone is welcome to join us.
On an ill-fated art expedition into the southern Shan state of Burma, eleven Americans leave their Floating Island Resort for a Christmas-morning tour - and disappear. Through twists of fate, curses, and just plain human error, they find themselves deep in the jungle, where they encounter a tribe awaiting the return of the leader and the mythical book of wisdom that will protect them from the ravages and destruction of the Myanmar military regime.
If you are looking for new depth in your worship or new breadth in your fellowship, or if you need some good brain exercise and endorphins, and if you love music, we know just the thing! Come on by choir practice (9 am Friday mornings) or bell choir practice (4 pm Thursdays) at the church. You can be a big part of making worship happen while you add all kinds of good things to your own week. If you are interested but want more info, talk to any choir or bell choir member or email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LOST AND FOUND
If you are missing a man's (wedding?) ring or a woman's post earring with a black stone, please contact the church office. Each of these were found some weeks ago in or near the sanctuary.
Cape May Edition
Ihis Sunday, we'll be enjoying coffee hour between service, but on June 5, we wrap our Presby 101 class with a session focused on our particular congregation. Even if you've missed the other sessions, You are still welcome to jump on in to get a little congregational history, an overview of who does what here, and a bit of demystifying the building! Starting at 10 am, in the Wedgwood Room, or on Zoom at: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82870065320?pwd=NnUyUG1OVjJzYmkrL2ZuMFA4SmZOZz09.
