Thanks to everyone who joined us for worship yesterday! You can still see the 10:00 service on our Facebook page. If you prefer a YouTube version, please click here.
Thanks also to everyone who was part of our Work Day two Saturdays ago and/or our Auction last Saturday!. Special thanks to Bob Rendrick for the first and Scott Seabury for the second, although I know both of them had a LOT of help. Our Auction raised something like $5000!!
This week we mostly have our normal events: Men’s Bible Study tonight (Monday) at 7:00 and on Friday our Healing Eucharist (12:00); Bible Study (1:00); and Contemplative Prayer. The main thing to emphasize is that next Sunday is Pentecost, one of the principal feasts of the Christian year. Please make a special effort to join us for worship that day!
Looking ahead, there are a handful of other things to note.
Our Tuesday book discussion group is starting a new book: Richard Rohr’s Things Hidden: Scripture as Spirituality. Our first meeting will be Tuesday May 30 at 4:15 on Zoom.
We are planning to offer a Communion Class for children this summer, probably meeting after Church on Sundays. Please let me know if you are interested, and we’ll make sure to find a date that works for everyone
We're bringing back Dominoes! The Dominoes crew will meet at Saint David's at 6:00 on the second and fourth Mondays of the month for some fun and fellowship.
We will again participate in the Appalachian Trail Ministry this summer. Churches in the Berkshires organize regular “Trail Magic” for hikers. To participate, people wait for hikers in a parking lot, and offer them goodies when they arrive. Our day is Saturday, June 24. If you are interested and haven’t already done so, please let me know.
Help Wanted: several of our ministries could use additional help. If you are interested in joining the lawn crew, helping with our gardens (flower or vegetable), or serving as an usher, please let me know.
What follows are not Saint David’s things, but are important opportunities in our communities.
The Parish Cupboard is sponsoring a Golf Tournament on June 3 at the Saint Anne’s Country Club. This is one of their biggest fundraisers for the year. For more information, please see the flyer on our bulletin board.
Two cancer support group events are coming up in our communities. “The Pink Way” is sponsoring a 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, June 17 at 8:30 in School Street Park. (https://www.facebook.com/events/607260087493030) And “Each Moment We’re Alive” is sponsoring a “Canine Fur Cancer Support Walk” on Friday, June 23 from 5:00 to 9:00. (https://eachmomentwerealive.networkforgood.com/events/54505-4th-annual-canines-fur-cancer-support-walk). For more information, please click the links or see printed flyers on our bulletin board.
Area Churches are setting up a new Circle of Care for a recently arrived Syrian refugee family. If you are interested in joining the Circle, please let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the right people. On the same general issue, the needs of the Khan family have ebbed but not gone away.
Finally, I have been asked to share information about a survey the town of Agawam is doing to get public input on a proposed Housing Production Plan. It takes 10-15 minutes to complete. You can find the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AgawamHousingSurvey.
Thanks!! God’s peace and all good to you all!!
