Youth Sunday! This Sunday, May 19, will be a day of special thanksgiving for the young people of our parish. We will highlight and celebrate their gifts and talents by their leadership in worship and our recognition of their academic accomplishments.
Following the 10:30 service, we will enjoy a potluck luncheon together in Emmaus Hall and the Gathering Space. The parish will provide the main dish - Miss Ann's chicken - tea, lemonade and water. We ask you to bring a side dish to share. Also, dress casual because, weather permitting, we will have inter-generational recreation on the back lot.
Some important events to note:
Resurrection is hosting a Be the Bridge! Interest Meeting on Monday, May 20, at 7 PM in Emmaus Hall. Be the Bridge is a small group study on God's call for us to be a bridge in our communities promoting racial reconciliation. In this interest meeting, we'll gather with folks from around the Greenwood community for structured discussion about race and learn about the plans for next year's 9-month study group. Join us for fellowship and thought-provoking conversation, and make some new friends along the way! For more information, contact Shana Southard-Dobbs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 870-307-4584.
Confirmation will take place on June 30 with Bishop Waldo’s visit. We will combine our worship services that morning at 10:30 AM. Bishop Waldo also will hold an adult forum at 9:30 AM in Emmaus Hall.
Summer Camps in Greenwood! You’ll notice a table in the Gathering Space this Sunday filled with information about summer programs for children hosted by Resurrection and Immanuel Lutheran Church. Stop by the table to see what they are all about. We hope to fill the rosters with children from our parish, as well as friends, family and neighbors in our community. So pick up a few flyers to take to school and share with others. Don’t wait until the last minute to sign up! Volunteers need advance notice for planning purposes.
