Wear Your Red
June 4th is Pentecost Sunday. On the day of Pentecost, we celebrate the birth of the church and remember the importance of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church. Everyone is encouraged to wear red on Pentecost Sunday as a tangible reminder of the important role the Holy Spirit plays in each of our lives.

Sunday School News
Our Sunday school will be on our summer schedule beginning June 4, 2017.  Instead of having opening exercises, we will meet in the fellowship hall from 10 – 10:15 am each Sunday for coffee, juice, & pastries.  Please join us.

Warm Up Your Vocal Cords
The choir’s last Sunday before taking their summer break will be June 11th. Beginning June 18th, the congregation will be invited to join in short responses as part of worship.

Thank You
A big thank you is extended to our choir members for all the hard work they have put in during the fall and spring. We are eternally grateful for the responses and anthems they provide each week. Thanks especially to choir director Brahma Rosenberg and organist Lou Bryant.  

Congratulations are extended to Leah Oliver, who received a first place award in the drawing/pastel competition at the Heart of Virginia Festival.

With Sympathy
Sympathy is extended to Jim Stuart and the entire Stuart family. Jim’s mother, Louise Stuart passed away recently. A Service of Witness to the Resurrection and celebration of Louise’s life was held at Lexington Presbyterian Church on May 22nd.

Sunnyside Communities Offering
Through June 18th (Father’s Day), we will continue to collect offerings for the Sunnyside Communities of Virginia. Funds collected will go to support residents of the Sunnyside Communities who can no longer afford to pay their own way. Please place your contribution in the Sunnyside Communities envelope or indicate that the offering is for the Sunnyside Communities by making a note on the memo line of your check.

2017 Women’s Connection at Montreat
The theme for this year’s conference is “The Fullness of Life.” According to the Montreat website, “Women’s Connection 2017 is a holy time for women to honor who God has created us to be. We hope to provide space for opportunities to nurture mind and body, to connect with community of old friends and new, and to recenter our communal lives and our individual selves in God’s good news. Come as you are. This year’s conference, featuring Rachel Held Evans, will encourage participants to find grace and renewal through reflection, rest, and community. Conference activities will include worship, fellowship, recreation, rest, and workshops.” Rachel Held Evans is the author of Searching for Sunday, which will be discussed during the conference. Conference Participants will be sent a copy of the book upon registration for the conference. Please go to for more information and to register.

Summer Bible Study
With our summer Bible study, we will seek to answer the question, Who Is Jesus, by examining Jesus from the perspective of the Gospel writers, Paul, the book of Hebrews, Non-Canonical gospels such as the Gospel of Thomas, other faiths, and modern day scholars. Bible study will be held each Wednesday evening at 7 pm, beginning June 14th (there will be no meeting on July 5th), and continuing until August 16th.
