Week of Sunday, May 14
Fifth Sunday in Easter, Mother’s Day
As we continue to celebrate the fifty days of Easter, First Peter reminds us, we are a holy people, called to proclaim the one who called us out of darkness into light. This Sunday we will recognize Mother’s Day with a special reflection from Cary and a reading of the Mother’s Day Proclamation.

Our Call to Mission
Thank you to everyone who has attended our town hall meetings and helped to craft our Call to Mission for the Redevelopment Process. This was and exciting and challenging task, and your creative efforts, and prayerful insights made the process fun and meaningful. Thank you.
The final draft approved by members present at the May 7 meeting reads as follows:
We are a faith community called to grow in the Spirit, love as Christ loves us, and participate in God’s liberating work of justice and peace.
Join us Pentecost Sunday as we officially kick off our redevelopment in worship and in a potluck cookout after worship. Details here!
