June 26 Announcements
We hope that you are well. If you are in need - physically, spiritually, or otherwise - don't hesitate to reach out to us by phone (506-940-1151) or email (email@example.com). We are here for you and for each other!
Summer Sunday Worship: Our Summer Sunday services (June 26-Sept 4) will be offered at 10am both in-person or online via our SUC Facebook Page. Mask-wearing and accommodation for those who wish to remain distanced will continue until otherwise stated. For those not on FB but wishing to watch online, a link to the video of the service will be posted on the church website in the days immediately following the service.
Sundae Sunday!: Join us this Sunday June 26 for an ice cream social following church as together we explore the joy of summer, the mystery of creation, and the challenge of just how much ice cream one body can contain at any one time.
Summer Office Hours:The office will be open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-4:30pm until June 26. Summer office hours will be on Thursdays from 12-3pm. In case of any changes to regular office hours due to illness or other circumstances, a notice will be posted on the church FB page and, when possible, on the front doors as well. Jennie will be away on vacation from June 27-July 9 and the office will be closed for that time. For those two weeks, however, the office will be open to the public on Sunday June 26 12-3pm and on Sunday July 10 12-3pm.
Scripture Readers Needed for Summer Services: Would you be interested in reading on Sunday Morning? You may sign up on the list on the Circles of Service Board or by calling the Church office. For convivence sake the season/theme of each Sunday is listed along with all of the texts for that Sunday according to the Revised Common Lectionary on the Sign-Up Sheet. On Thursday afternoon the Church Office will communicate with you and provide you with the specific text(s) you will be asked to read, including the possibility of a selection of modern wisdom in the form of a quote from a current text. The Worship and Sanctuary Committee thanks you for sharing in this ministry.
Drew Volunteer Drivers Needed: Can you spare an hour or two a week? Especially during July, August, and September? The Drew Nursing Home Meals for Seniors Program is looking for a volunteer driver for Fridays at 11:15am for an hour of your time. This program ensures that seniors get a healthy hot meal give days a week. This will truly warm your heart to see the enjoyment on their faces and to have a little chat about their day. If interested please call Donna Lowerison, Food Service Manager at the Drew at 364-4909. Drivers are required to provide a criminal record check.
