Year of the Clip…

To further our goal of “building community” we are busy planning a special event called “The Year of the Clip.” Our moderator has already shared most of the details and guidelines. This week there will be a sign-up sheet in our Sunday morning bulletin giving our members and friends an opportunity to participate in this event. It is a wonderful opportunity to share something that you consider to be special or unusual from a movie that you have enjoyed. Please consider becoming a participant. Think about this quickly, we will hold the event on Wednesday, May 29 at 7:00 p.m.  

 

Weekly Scripture Meditation:

We are inviting the Church as a whole to participate in reading and meditating on the lectionary texts for the upcoming Sunday. The texts for Sunday, May 19 are as follows: 

Acts 11:1-18

Revelation 21:1-6

John 13:31-35

Psalm 148

 

Your most formative Bible story, Important story or verses, etc.

What part of the whole Bible has shaped you the most? Is there a story that has influenced you in a certain situation? Is there a verse or story that all Christians should be aware of? Be strong and of great courage and submit them to Pastor Bees at  revbees@yahoo.com. 

 

Eastertide

Many of us are used to celebrating Easter for one day. However, in the Church, Easter is actually a season. After the resurrection, Jesus appeared to his disciples over a period of forty days, teaching them the truths of the kingdom. On the fortieth day he ascended into heaven. Ten days later the Holy Spirit descended upon them. Easter is a seven-week celebration that included the ascension and ended with the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost.

 

One Great Hour of Sharing

Beginning in May we will collect for our denomination’s “One Great Hour of Sharing” offering. Where does our money go? This offering funds: emergency relief, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for urgent and acute needs brought on by disasters of natural or human origin; development projects, focused on meeting chronic human need by enabling individuals or groups to establish or maintain a more adequate quality of life; and refugee and immigration ministries, focused on holistic ministry to immigrants, refugees, and migrants in detention facilities and refugee camps.  This is a collaborative effort done with: AME Zion Church, Christian Church [Disciples of Christ], Church of the Brethren, Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Presbyterian Church USA, Reformed Church in America, United Church of Christ and Church World Service.
