Sermon: “Shame on You!!”
Scripture: Mark 3:20-35
Jesus’ family was horrified at what was happening — they were feeling shamed. Continuing last week’s exploration, we will consider a bit more about how shame plays into our constitution as human beings and what it means to be a faith community.
Work Day – Open Center Repair
There will be a work day at the church on Saturday, June 13th and June 20th, from 10 AM – 2 PM to prepare the basement for the Open Center. This winter the church suffered extensive damage to the Open Center and Allen’s office due water damage caused by an ice dam. The church’s insurance has given money for the repairs. The building circle has arranged with a contractor and the Open Center to perform all of the work for one week in July. During this week, the Open Center will be temporarily residing in the basement. Please come to this work day to help us prepare for their stay and help us to continue to build our partnership with the Open Center. Many hands make light work!
