Rev Rick’s Ramblings May 2016

Blessed to be a blessing.

The new Covenant Bible Study Group is finding a way to strengthen their faith by studying the scriptures and sharing together in class. As we explore God’s action creating covenant with the world, with God’s people and with us, we hear God promising to bless us that we may be a blessing. We have the special opportunity to be a blessing for our community. Through our participation with WAIM, the Windham Area Interfaith Ministry, we join with congregations and people of faith throughout our community and the surrounding area to improve the lives of people who might otherwise be forgotten. This month we hold WAIM Sunday on May 15. This gives us the opportunity to celebrate the work of WAIM and to have a special collection to support this vital work. As a special feature the WAIM truck will be here so we are asking members to bring their donations of clothing, furniture or other items to be sent on to WAIM. The following Saturday, May 21, is our day to volunteer at WAIM. We come to church to be blessed through the strengthening of our faith. From that foundation we seek to be a blessing for others. Through it all, we do it together, and that is wonderful!
