July Sermon Series

Building off of Acts 2:42-47 and Pastor Jen’s sermon on 6/21, join us Sunday mornings as we continue to work out how a Spirit filled community comes together for God’s shalom.

July 12 – The Embodied Spirit Community

July 19 – The Fruit of the Spirit Community

Newsletter Devotionals and Testimonies Wanted

We are asking for devotionals and testimonies from the congregation to be shared in future Newsletters. If you feel led to share or have questions, please contact Christin at christin@richmondcumc.com.

 

Join us in July for Praise and Play! July 12th, 19th, and 26th at 6:00pm

We will gather at 6:00pm outdoors (indoors if it’s raining) for a time of praise through song with guitar. Children will then have the opportunity for a short lesson and playing on our playground or indoors in the gym, while the rest of us join together for a short devotion and discussion. We hope you will join us!
 

 

A New Day, A New Army

We have heard story after story of how the livestream service is blessing many. Therefore we are resolving to continue to offer our online Sunday morning service indefinitely. When our fellow Wesleyan William Booth changed the name of the Christian Mission to the Salvation Army he declared he did not want to settle down into quietness, but rather go forward at all costs. Friends we have reached such a time with our online ministry. Right now we have a few faithful who are making sure this ministry continues. Long term, we will need reinforcements on this team to run sound, video, and slides. Is it you? Are you willing to serve on Sunday mornings and beyond? If you discern this in your prayers, please contact the office.

 

Community Food Pantry Volunteers Needed

• Twice per week – 2 hours per day: A volunteer is needed to be present while the pantry is open. This person would help wherever needed. Re-fill shelves, accept food donations at the back door, help pass out food if church volunteers need extra help.

• Once per week – 1 to 2 hours: Our truck goes to the Richmond Meijer to pick up their donations. When the truck drivers unload the food, we need a volunteer to help unload the truck, sort the food and add it to our shelves. The length of time varies by the amount of food.

• Once per month – 2 to 3 hours: Once a month our truck goes to pick up food from Gleaners Food Bank. When the truck drivers unload the food, we need a volunteer to help unload the truck, sort the food and add it to our shelves. The length of time varies by the amount of food.

• Once per week on your own schedule: We need a volunteer to recycle excess cardboard. Once a week load and haul the cardboard to the landfill for recycling. Volunteers will need a mini-van or pick-up. Length of time varies.

Please give thoughtful and prayerful consideration to volunteering and talk to your friends, neighbors and co-workers about their volunteering to help. To volunteer or find out more details, call Phil Shirden:  765-994-9447
