    Summer Connections!

    It feels like summer is here so that means it is time to mark your calendars with dates and locations of  our informal gatherings affectionately known as Summer Connections!  

    Summer Connections are casual, unstructured gatherings where we can meet new friends and catch up with the old (long time) friends. We share dinner and conversation twice a month during the summer, which is only June, July and August just in case you are not sure!  We have a potluck at someone's house 6:00 pm on Wednesday evenings.  The hosting family usually provides the main dish, often grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, however if you would like to serve top sirloin no one will complain. Everyone else brings a side dish or dessert and their own beverage.

    Whether you can make all the connections or just one,  please put the following dates on your calendar. We never know what we will eat, who will be there or what the weather will be like (OK 100's) but we do know it is a good evening of enjoying positive fellowship, meeting new people and trying new things. ALL ARE WELCOME!

    Grace, Grub, and Grog

    Grace, Crub and Grog

    Grace, Grub and Grog, a fellowship group for young adults and graduate students, will meet on Saturday, July 30, when we will join a giant Feed My Starving Children mobile pack event at the Phoenix Convention Center.  More details to come as they are available!  Check it out at Feed My Starving Children.

    Please contact Maddie Shaner using our Contact Form for more information.  The Church office will forward your questions to Maddie.

    We're hoping to go on day trips to hike and escape the heat this summer, too--time and date will depend on the weather but please contact Maddie if you're interested or have any suggestions!

    Marcie Gest Mission Trip to India

    Marcie Gest, ULC member and wife of Darren and mother of Dean is a nurse. Marcie has been accepted to be part of a mission trip to India. Congratulations, Marcie! We can also collect supplies for Marcie to take for her trip. Below is part of an e-mail from Darren and Marcie regarding the trip:

    Marcie will be going to Hyderabad, India from October 29 - November 12 as part of a mission trip for her school to provide healthcare to leper colonies. They have to bring their own supplies, so below is a list of supplies they are collecting, so if anyone wants to donate, they would be greatly appreciated. Also Marcie would like to do an adult forum about it once she gets back, likely after the New Year.

    Note that a large part of the healthcare provided is wound care, so any supplies that can be collected for dressings are much needed.  Supplies can be put by the desk at the church entrance. Thank you!
