INVITATION TO PRAYER from Sandra Smith. You undoubtedly have heard the phrase Families who pray together stay together.  That has proven true for church families, as well. Therefore, I invite you to join with me for a time of prayer for loved ones and friends, for the ministries of our churches, and for our country. Our first gathering for prayer will be Wednesday, June 28 at 10:00am. If you are interested but would prefer an afternoon or evening schedule, please let me know.

HELP THE HOMELESS: Our church has been asked to collect new white socks, caps/hats, and bug spray/sun block. The collection box is on the landing at the entrance to Crain Hall. The Human Service Committee will be collecting and distributing the collected items periodically. Thank you for your support!

FREE CHILDREN’S CLOTHING EXCHANGE: We continue to accept gently used children’s clothes, sizes 0-14, which may be dropped off at the Thrift Shop. The exchange is open the first Saturday of each month at 10am.

THE RISEM DISTRICT COMMITTEE invites everyone to a commemorative worship service in celebration of the ministry of Rev. Seok Hwan Hong on Sunday, June 11th at 3pm. It will take place at the East Greenwich United Methodist Church in East Greenwich, RI. Please see the flyer in Crain Hall for more details.
