We will continue our Worship series, entitled “Unafraid” that will offer insights into living with courage and hope in uncertain times. Based on the book by Adam Hamilton, topics we will take up in the coming weeks include: crime, terrorism, failure, disappointing others, insignificance, loneliness, missing out, change, aging, dying and illness. This week: “Unafraid: Change and Missing Out.”
Also, this Sunday is the next Wesley Church Council Meeting at noon in the Council Room downstairs. As always, you are invited to attend!
LGBTQIA+ Listening and learning opportunities: The Wesley Church Council invites the entire Wesley community to be part of continued listening and learning as we discern together Wesley’s next steps as a community of faith. In August there is one more opportunity with more coming in September:
August 25th: Facilitated table conversations at lunch. During our community lunch, facilitators will be positioned at some of the tables to invite conversation around two questions: A) How has what you believe about LGBTQIA+ inclusion changed or been affirmed since childhood? B) What key encounters affirmed or changed your beliefs?
Boutique Seeks Donations: The women’s boutique is in need of donations of costume jewelry they can offer to their clients. You can leave your donation in the West office or downstairs in the Boutique on Tuesdays from 10 AM – 2 PM.
