Worship schedule. This Sunday we begin our summer schedule with one service at 10:00 a.m. We return to two services with Sunday School on September 8.
Cooking oil. The GRACE Food Pantry has expanded its coverage and now averages over 30 families per day. All families need cooking oil, and the Outreach Committee is having a cooking oil drive during the month of June to help cover this increase. Please help by donating 48 oz. bottles of any type of cooking oil—consider increasing your current donations of cooking oil, if you can. Our goal for June is 225 bottles. Watch the number of donations grow!
Feed Our Kids is a program of GRACE which provides lunches for area children from low-income families who qualify for free or reduced lunches at school and depend on GRACE for lunches in the summer when school is out. This year Abiding Grace will again provide more than 1,000 lunches over two weeks: June 3-7, led by Pete Etheredge, and June 17-21, led by Lori Anderson. Members can help by preparing and serving lunches and/or providing baked goods for the lunches. There are sign-up sheets now available at the Outreach kiosk. For more information, see Lori Anderson or Pete Etheredge.
Summer Choir begins on June 2 and will continue periodically during the summer. On Sundays the choir sings, there will be a rehearsal at 9:00 a.m. prior to worship to learn the piece. This is a great opportunity to try out choir with a one-morning commitment! Contact Vanessa if interested—or just show up on Sunday morning!
Father's Day Games, Brats, and Burgers. On Saturday, June 15, at 5:00 p.m. all the men of Abiding Grace and their families are invited to a fun event to celebrate all of you and all you do! Come and bring your family, favorite board games or yard games. We can play outside if the weather permits. We'll have hamburgers, brats, sides, all the fixin's, and beverages. Please sign up at the Fellowship Kiosk so we'll know how many to plan for.
Briarwood Retreat Center. Read about all that's happening in upcoming months at Briarwood in the June issue of The Vine which is available online.
Missing. Our communion baskets for the empty cups have been missing for several weeks. If you know where they were placed, please return them to the kitchen.
Keep in prayer. Please keep the following people in your prayers: Sandy, Jeff, Arty, Dawn, Sarah, Tracy, Mona, Mimi, Shirley, Mike, Arthur, Elenor, LInda, Rich, Martha, Terri, Kay, Davey, Jim, Corbin, Chris,Tommy, Karseno and Langsdale families, Jason, Piper family, Lorraine, Joan, and Carl.
