Together in Faith: Jesus looked up to heaven and said…”I have made your name known.” John 17: 6
Like Jesus, we are invited to make God present in our world, today. We do this by our words, of course, but even more by our actions. A steward strives to do as Jesus suggested: feed the hungry, care for the sick, reach out for the needy.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is John Ddamba.
Sunday School: The last scheduled day of church school is May 20th. Awards will be presented on that day during our regular service.

Pentecost is coming: Please join YOUR voice to our multilingual "group reading" of Acts 2:1-21! We need people of all ages with a reading knowledge of any language or dialect. The passage we will read is short (Acts 2, verses 5-11 only); your rendition need not be "perfect"; if you're shy, don't worry -- you won't be "in the spotlight"; and we'll even print out a translation for you. In past years, the Pentecost message has been heard in Arabic, English, French, German, Gullah, Igbo, Kikuyu, Latin, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese... We may need more than one speaker of each language -- the more, the better! Please contact Jan Northcutt: firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-621-0085. Let's make a "joyful noise" to the Lord!
