Hello and happy Friday!
Last Sunday, we began our three-part series on sexuality by asking the question: What is sexuality? We had honest conversations about our own perceptions and explored the intersections between spirituality and sexuality. Also, we took a look at some sexual parts of Scripture, including Song of Solomon and instances of the sexual/spiritual union of God and God’s creation.
Join us on Sunday as we continue this series with the question: What does it mean to be human? As humans, we are obviously sexual creatures, but is there something distinct that separates us from animals and angels? If we are not fully physical and not fully spiritual, what does that mean for us as physical and spiritual beings? We will also take a look at some universals of humanity, such as heartache and lust.
And… We’re embarking on a new mission to help some local children have fun and learn what it means to give back! We’ll be hosting an event in Gypsy Hill Park on Saturday, August 24th from 2pm-5pm where children can engage in art, theater, and music activities, eat popsicles and help create hygiene kits that will be sent to local schools to go home with students whose families could use a little extra help.
This Sunday we will begin collecting items for the kits! We need shampoo, bars of soap (individually wrapped), toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, and new pairs of socks. Also, we will be taking an offering of money to help put on the event and the activities.
We’re doing this event because we want children to have fun while learning about serving others in the community, but we also realize that while families can usually attain food when needed, there are few places where families can get hygiene products when in need. We believe it’s God’s dream that everyone will have the resources to be healthy.
A friend of mine helped me to decorate some of the bags that will be used for the hygiene kits, check out the pictures below! We hope to see you on Sunday at 6:30 for dinner, discussion, communion and creative worship. Everyone is welcome to journey with us and everyone means everyone, no matter what! If you have questions or need directions, fill out the contact form below.
If you’d like to donate hygiene items but wont be joining us on Sundays, please contact us! We’ll be collecting through August 24th and have set a goal of at least 100 bags.
