Dear Folks,

May you all have an enjoyable and safe Memorial Day weekend. Don’t forget to stop for a moment to remember and to give thanks to those who gave their all for our freedom.

Tomorrow’s LEO (Let’s Eat Out) will be at Calorosa, 100 Center St., Shelton at 6:30 P.M. Please let me know ASAP if you would like to come!

If the rain stops, we will be having our outdoor clean up day at the church on Saturday, May 26 at 8:30 A.M. Bring your gardening tools and your enthusiasm! Coffee and donuts will be provided.

This Sunday, May 27 is Trinity Sunday. The scripture is Isaiah 6:1-8. The sermon is “Here Am I”. We will be celebrating the baptism of Rocklin Thor St. Germain.

Women’s Fellowship’s Annual Outdoor Tag & Bake Sale is scheduled for Saturday, June 9th (note date change) from 9 A.M. to 2 P.M. in the church parking lot. The cost is $20 per spot and/or donate your proceeds to Women’s Fellowship for their projects and missions. We will also be looking for bake sale items. For more information, contact Denise Wilson.

GRADUATES! We want to hear from graduates of high school, vocational school, and colleges (both under-graduate and graduate degrees). These adults & young adults will be recognized at the June 17th worship service. We will need the names for the Graduate Sunday bulletin.

We need help in all areas! This year, VBS’s theme is Rolling River Rampage. We will be learning God’s words and works Monday, June 25 thru Thursday, June 28 from 5:30-7:45 P.M. If you’d like to volunteer to help during VBS, contact Kirsten Keith if you’re able to help in any way.

Please take note of the poster in the Alcove with suggested items for the Valley Food Bank bin in Fellowship Hall. Of course, all items are gratefully accepted, but the Missions Committee put together a list that attempts to target items that may be needed more during certain seasons or months. The need is great, so please be generous! Thank you!

My Sister’s Place bin is back in Fellowship Hall for your tax-deductible donations of lightly used clothing & household items.

Let us pray. O Holy One, we offer our thanks for the passion you instilled in those who came before us who strove for freedom, justice, and peace. May we continue to work in their memory to increase freedom, justice, and peace for all in whatever way we can. Amen.

In Christ’s love,
Rev. Lucille
