Parish BBQ Celebration--NOTE DATE CHANGE!

Parish BBQ & Conversation – “Finding God in Mission” – NOW SUNDAY, JUNE 23 – Garrison Fish & Game Club – with the Eucharist!

We have much to celebrate this year: All our progress with the Building Restoration; and all the Missions that you do! We will hear from those who: care for the Elderly, teach Youth in poor areas, serve in local Organizations, care for our Environment, serve the Hungry; and from our own Youth who also serve! Shared reflection is shared encouragement. We will also give our year end awards to those who have ministered so faithfully among us – adults and youth.

Jesus was known in the breaking of the bread and we will know him in BBQ ribs, burgers & dogs, and any treats you bring. Contact Carol O’Reilly at We will also know him in the words of our laypeople who minister so beautifully, in the words of scripture and other writers, and in the music led by Woody Entriken on keyboard, and Fred Osborn on guitar!

Finally, a separate collection will be taken for the Youth Overnight Week-Long Camp of Rural & Migrant Ministries. Farm worker kids from all over the area get to gather in one place, learn arts and leadership skills, and become leaders in their communities and ours! We will partner in this fundraising with 15 other congregations – building a parish partnership for these young leaders.
