That's the title of our guest preacher's sermon this week - but don't worry! He's not talking about Pastor Emily, her new call to Christ Church Denver, or your incoming Pastor Phil Vogels (who begins July 1st). This Sunday, Dr. Jim Barrington will share a message from Luke 17 about why doing the right thing is not always enough. As Christians, we are also to experience joy, gratitude and worship! Jim was an active member of our church since age 25, but was recruited by First Christian Church across the street to be their pastor for 19 years. When he retired, he passed the mantle to his daughter, Pastor Teresa Barrington, who still proudly serves our neighboring church. Jim is remarried and now lives most of the year in Arizona, but he and Sandi are delighted to join you on Sunday at 10AM to share a Father's Day service.

June Mission Focus:
Windsor/Severance Food Pantry
It’s Peanut Butter/Jelly Time! Bring your donations to the lobby and watch Mr. Peanut add up the pounds. In addition to Peanut Butter and Jelly, the Food Pantry is in need of 5 lb bags of sugar and flour, small bottles of cooking oil, cereal and other non-perishables. You may place items in the Huckabee Food Wagon just inside the door (near the office), or drop off during our Trunk collection on June 17th between 9 and 11 am.
You may also click here to sign-up to help the Pantry relocate inside Faith Church on Tuesday, June 22 and Thursday, June 24th. Only a few more 3-hour time slots are available!
Habitat for Humanity The new Greeley H4H project in Evans is progressing well. It is a multi-family project, so building is in progress for several families. If you are interested in participating in a Build Day, please contact us by email HERE to let us know. Also indicate which of these dates would work better for you: July 8, 10 or 15.
The Chancel Choir will begin next week rehearsing in-person on Monday nights at 5:30pm in July! Come and give it a try! Let Megan Mellenthien, our Music Director, know if you have questions or would like to attend (here's her email). The choir will NOT yet be performing live yet in worship, per CDC recommendations, but will do group recordings!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Thank you so much to those of you that attended church service this past Sunday and stayed to say goodbye to Pastor Emily. It was awesome to see the sanctuary with people in every pew! Especially compared to the dozen or so people we saw as the church started to re-open as Covid restrictions were lifting. We have said farewell in style. Now we are looking forward to welcoming our new pastor, Rev. Phil Vogels.
Please accept this note as an invitation for you to attend our next Leadership Board meeting in Fellowship Hall next Tuesday, June 22nd at 5:30 PM. The first half of our meeting will be set aside to brainstorm a vision for our church going forward. If you have ideas for a Vision Statement but are unable to attend, please email them to me.
I am so excited for the future of our church! I continually pray for the health of our congregation and each of you. God Bless each and every one of you.
Volunteers needed We need to revive the tradition of having 1-2 ushers and greeters in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings to pass out bulletins, help new people find seats/get comfortable, and hand out Wiggly Worshiper Bags. We also need 2 volunteers at the Welcome Desk downstairs each week to keep our attendance, guest registry and contact tracing. Please contact the Church Office now to volunteer.
Columbine reunited Our Sunday afternoon worship services at Columbine Commons have been reunited into one service at @2PM on the Assisted Living side. Masks are less stringently required, and even Communion is welcomed! Praise be to God! Please contact the Church Office to sign up in pairs to lead a short 20-30 minute service of prayer, song, Scripture and message. We hate to disappoint our seniors, but still have many open dates this summer! Please contact seasoned volunteer Pat Ferrell if you have any questions.
Celebrate good times Happy Birthday to Jeff Stephan (6/17) and Mel Klema (6/23). Happy Anniversary to Kevin and Angie Johnson 24 years (6/22). Please share your dates with us!

(chemotherapy), the Klema's friend Leann Wyatt (cancer diagnosis), Francy's friend Jenny Manuel, those recovering from illness (Bill H., Meg P., Lynda C.) or grief (Norman Rowland's daughter Vicky Schenkein, the Harris-Reed family), for our homebound members Ann, Eileen, Judy, Bud, Bob, and Don.
