Trinity Sunday

8:30 a.m.

(Communion)

10:00 a.m.

Another beautiful weekend, this time we recognize Memorial Day. This is a day set aside for us to honor and remember those who lost their lives in battle representing this country. As we know Monday will mean different things to different people. It will signify patriotism, family honor and traditions, and for some it will have the significance of the accomplishment of a school year and the start of summer.
This Monday I offer you a new tradition you can begin on Memorial Day as Christians. As we reflect on those who have gone on before us whether they served in the military or not, let us also reflect how the Spirit accompanied them during their lives and is also accompanying us today through our trials seen and unseen. Let us be intentional in our remembering the Spirit, and who we are as believers in Christ.
I hope to see you Sunday as we worship together in spirit and in truth!
Peace,
Rev. Krista

Upcoming….

 

Congregational Meeting:  June 10

 

We will hold an important Congregational Meeting on Sunday, June 10, immediately following the 10:00 worship service.  The order of business is to hold Council elections for the 2018-2019 year.

 

How Is God Calling You?

 

Council is ready to begin a new year with lots of ideas and projects that need your support.  The questions is:  How is God calling you during this season of rejuvenation to serve the Pilgrimage church community?  Are you contemplating missions, teaching, singing, or helping with the properties committee?  Pray, discern, and let the Holy Spirit rest on your shoulders as you allow God to guide you.  There IS a place in this community where you can live out your calling.  See or contact Matthew Alexander for questions at:   stewardship@pilgrimageucc.org.

 

Summer Skit

 

If you are interested in participating in a skit to be performed in August, please see Duke Yaguchi during our Potluck Social next Sunday.  All aspiring thespians are welcome!!

 

Church Work Day:  June 2

 

The Properties committee has a work day scheduled for Saturday, June 2.  The main focus will be to spruce up the NGH before VBS begins on June 11.  We will be working on both inside and outside tasks including painting, caulking & sealing, floor repair, and repair of other miscellaneous issues.  We will also need to move furnishings around and potentially rearrange and dispose of some items.  It will be particularly helpful to have some youth and others who use this building to help with the decision making regarding its contents.  The number of people we have will depend on whether we will also be doing some work on the bathrooms in the main building.  Contact Chris Shiver to find out more information and what supplies are needed at properties@pilgrimageucc.org.

 

Youth Lock-In: June 9

 

We will have a youth lock-in on Saturday, June 9, to celebrate the end of the school year.  There will be activities that tie into VBS (which starts on Monday, June 11) and food!  Email Wayne Scott at youth@pilgrimageucc.org for more information and to R.S.V.P.

 

2018 VBS:  Only 3 Weeks to Go!

 

  • Adopt a Volunteer:  Only 3 more weeks to spread the spirit of fun by wearing a fabulously tacky VBS name tag!  “Purchasing” a decorated name tag is a great way for those who can’t be an on-site volunteer to support the VBS program.  Look for Karen Clark on Sunday to make your tacky selection.
  • Snack Wizard:  Just 3 more Snack Wizards needed.  And, of course, this is another way to support VBS without actually showing up each day.   We tell you what items, how many, how to prepare them, and when to deliver.  Easy-peasy!
  • See Karen Clark on Sunday or contact her at karensclark@comcast.net.

 

 

June Book Club: Date Change

 

The date for June book club has been changed. We will meet at the home of Karen Clark on Tuesday, June 19,

at 7:00 p.m.  The book for discussion is THE BAKER’S DAUGHTER by Sarah McCoy.
