Friday, July 21 –Prayer, Fasting and Advocacy. For Such a Time as This: A Call to Prayer, Fasting, and Advocacy, is the joint statement issued by Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  Please consider joining us in prayer and fasting on the 21st of each month through December 2018, at which time the 115th Congress will conclude. The 21st was selected because 90% of the SNAP (food stamp) benefits across the nation are used up each month by that date.  More ways to help include donating food and money to our local Rio Vista Food Pantry and writing letters and making phone calls to your representatives to request that they support funding for SNAP, Meals on Wheels and school lunch programs.

Thursday, July 27, 10:00 am, Shared Ministry Meeting at the church.  We will continue with our book study, Listening Hearts, Discernment-Chapter 5 and we will begin work on a collage depicting the church’s history and mission for our large bulletin board.  Copies of the book are available in the church library. We are collecting photographs and other materials to use in the collage display.  Please join us.
