Dear Friends,

The Reopening Team has been hard at work. We are recommending to session tonight a guidelines and protocols document to be used as part of the reopening process. We have ordered masks and sanitizers and are getting signage to place around the building, and we have received the infrared thermometer. The only item we are waiting on is the stand alone touch free hand sanitizers. Those seem to be a hot item right now, but I am confident we can have those on site in the next few weeks. I am hopeful that we can begin to worship together again by early to mid-July. Stay tuned for more information in the days ahead. A big word of thanks to the team members: Ivy McKinney, Janet Finch, Maria Lindsay, Julian Brix and Bill Schimpf.
 
Stay safe and God’s blessings,
Tom

The Reason for God 
Online study, Monday at 4pm


In his New York Times bestselling book The Reason for God, Timothy Keller established himself as a modern-day C. S. Lewis who brings together faith and intellect, theology and popular culture, modern-day objections and historic Christian beliefs.

This six-session small group Bible study captures live and unscripted conversations between Rev. Keller and a group of people to address their doubts and objections to Christianity. Using literature, philosophy, and Scripture, Keller and the group explore the truth of Christianity.

Sessions include:
•    1. Isn’t the Bible a Myth?
•    2. How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?
•    3. What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?
•    4. Why Does God Allow Suffering?
•    5. Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?
•    6. How Can God Send Good People to Hell?

Join Bridget Perry and Clare Schimpf for an hour every Monday at 4:00 pm for six weeks starting May 18. We will watch a 20 minute video online followed by a 40 minute discussion via Zoom* with a study guide. Invite a friend or family member to join you – near or far – all are welcome.

Each spring, we recognize and pray for those students who are graduating high school or college. Please email the church office if you, or your son or daughter, will be graduating so we can include their names in the Worship Service.

Children's virtual Sunday School
Our theme for June 2020 is Focus– take a closer look. We'll be reading stories from the book of Acts and using scripture from Hebrews to dive deep into what it means to have faith. All month we'll be exploring how we can trust in what we can't see and how that changes the way we see everything! 
 
"Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being sure of what we do not see." -Hebrews 1:11
