First Church Alert May 24th
If you did not receive a special message earlier this week regarding the re-opening of worship in June, please let us know so we can forward you the details.
1 The Content Life
C. S. Lewis once said, “I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare,” and he wasn’t talking about money. We conclude our series, “The Content Life,” focusing this week on the gift of generosity. We’ll have scripture readings from Leviticus and Luke and special music from Kristin Bickel, singing “Your Grace Finds Me.” Find our worship service every Sunday at www.firstchurchlajunta.org or the La Junta Presbyterians Facebook page.
2 Memorial Day Remembrance
If you would like the name of a family member or friend who died while in service to our nation's military, please forward those names to the Church Office no later than this Friday, May 22, at 10:00 a.m.
3 Special request from Associated Charities
5 lb bags of Flour and Vegetable Oil is needed. If you are able to bring it to the church that would be greatly appreciated, Associated Charities said they will pickup and donations we have or you may deliver directly to them.
4 Love Your Neighbors Program
The Love Your Neighbors Program is a chance for us to bless our neighbors with yard work and simple home repair. Here’s how to join us:
Call the Church Office and leave us your name and phone number. Cell phone numbers are preferred for texting, but home phones work too! Let us know if neighbors in need of assistance. Call the Church Office or Chad Smith directly at 469-5924. Be ready for us to contact you with Saturday morning work projects. It’s just that simple!
5 Church Office reopening
The Church Office will re-open for normal hours beginning next week: Monday through Thursday, 8:30 to noon. Note, however, that this coming Monday is Memorial Day, so it will be a shorter week than normal.
A big, huge thank you to Becci Lease, with special helpers John and Esabella, who collected the mail for us these past 8 weeks.
Finally...Get ready for drive-in worship!
Pentecost Sunday is May 31, and we’ll gather here at the church for drive-in worship with praise and communion. Join us and spread the word to friends, family, and neighbors!
