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.
  • Our October 2 Host:  Debbie

Discussion:

  • Debbie led us in our retreat this weekend – Down to Earth: Cultivating Ecojustice Through Ecospiritual Practices.  Twenty people participated in all sessions – sixteen in person and four online – with four more joining us online as time and circumstances allowed.

Joys and Concerns:

  • It was a joy to have participated in the retreat last weekend – and another joy to have Ron join us this afternoon.
  • Judy’s kidney stone procedure went very well!  Judy and Win are enjoying a concert this afternoon.
  • Cheryl has been diagnosed with pneumonia and is recovering with the help of antibiotics.
  • Cheryl is grateful for all the help and support she has received over the past weeks and months as she continues to grieve the loss of her parents.  She’s also grateful that she preached at Evergreen Christian Church today, as the mother of a lesbian daughter visited for the first time, and Cheryl was there to welcome her.
  • Sherrill asks for prayers for friends: a friend who is suicidal; a 17-year-old whose mother is moving to Mexico without her; and a woman who discovered mold in her apartment.
  • Tory is receiving treatment for lymphedema in her legs.  It’s painful at times, but the treatment is helping.
  • Janet was taking a walk today for some selfcare.
  • Ann asks for prayers for Shirley, a long-time member of Mountair Christian Church, who is in need of care.
  • Phil C. preached at United Church of Broomfield today where Shaye Champ is the interim associate minister.  It makes him sad that Disciples and UCC folks are separate and separated when they could be united in many ways.
