Ongoing Mission and Service Projects:

  • Any contribution to support those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
  • Any contribution to support anti-racism pro-reconciliation efforts.

Our Mission First Goal:

  • to be a church that acts on God’s overwhelming call to respond with compassion to the vulnerable
  • to educate ourselves and others about our life with undocumented people, refugees, and immigrants and to provide assistance as much as possible
  • to address issues of health care, disabilities, and special needs children
  • to work for human rights for all people, including Muslims, Jews, other minority religious groups, women, LGBTQ+, and more
  • to remain committed to the poor, the hungry, the homeless, people with mental health issues, the uneducated, the powerless, and the afraid

Calendar:

  • Our Zoom Socials will continue as desired every Wednesday at 6:00.
  • August 15 host:  Debbie
  • August 22 host:  Debbie
  • August 29 host:  Debbie
  • September 5 host:  Virtual CRMR Regional Assembly
  • September 12:  Meeting at Phil and Debbie’s house and going hybrid!

Discussion:

  • Debbie led us in our discussion of “Who Is My Neighbor?”  After talking about reconciliation last week, we talked about reparations today using the context of the Tulsa Race Massacre. 

Joys and Concerns:

  • Gail fell and is in the ICU.
  • Phil entertained Cheryl’s dad and led a sing-along with other residents while Cheryl took her mom to the doctor.
  • Kathy is about the same.  She saw the chaplain last week and was able to stay awake during the visit.
  • Cos couldn’t visit Kathy due to allergy symptoms, wanting to make sure he didn’t have something worse and risk taking those germs into the residence.
  • Sherrill’s bipolar is out of control currently.  She’d like to touch base with lots of people during this time of resetting her medication.
  • Tory discovered she had cataracts and will probably need surgery to remove them in a year.
  • Richard was delighted to be wined and dined this week by Ellen, Joel, and family.
  • Cheryl has really appreciated the Olympics this year, especially seeing how athletes have persevered and supported each other during COVID.
  • The Fanning kids have really enjoyed being back to school with in-person learning, though the level of community spread in Phoenix is deeply concerning.
