We are once again preparing our vegetable garden boxes, looking forward to bringing fresh, healthy vegetables to the Cheney Food Bank this spring and summer.

For your contemplation: “The Church is one body. Paul writes ‘We were baptized into one body in a single Spirit.’ But this one body has many parts. As Paul says, ‘If they were all the same part, how could it be a body? As it is, the parts are many but the body is one.’ Not everyone can be everything. Often we expect one member of the body to fulfill a task that belongs to others. But the hand cannot be asked to see nor the eye to hear. Together we are Christ’s body, each of us a part to play in the whole. Let’s be grateful for our limited but real part in the body.” – Henri J.M. Nouwen.

United Methodist Church

Please join us this Sunday at the United Methodist Church as we welcome guest pastor, Katy Shedlock.

Shedlock is currently pastor of the startup church, The Studio, out of Audubon Park UMC. She will continue the sermon series based on the musical cantata, “Our Father,” by Pepper Chaplin.

Sunday school classes will not meet this Sunday but will meet one more time on June 3 before recessing for the summer.
