Preparing for Aug. 19 Worship


“The Jethro Method”
Exodus 18:13-27 (NRSV)

How we manage a community under God—in other words, church administration—sounds like a mind-numbing subject. This ancient text is at the root of the right approach, however, and there’s something in it for all of us to learn. It points us toward a lot of other biblical guidance, too. We might even find we can get excited about the possibilities!

Breakfast at Luminary


From Pastor Chuck:

Connie, Rose and I thought we would try something for a few weeks to see how it goes. We’re setting up a small, low-maintenance breakfast bar in the fellowship hall for use on Sundays.

It will have basic stuff on it: assorted cereals with milk, wrapped pastries, fiber bars, juice pouches, fruit cups, and even some bottled Starbucks Frappuccinos. It should be set up and ready to go by about 8:15 Sunday mornings.

The usual coffee that’s always out will still be available, too.

There also will be a donation jar. Please, if you’re hungry and short on cash, get something, but if you can donate, that will be helpful, too. Donations will go to the kitchen fund and indicate whether we can keep this effort going.
