July 3rd: Called to Love

This Sunday, July 3rd: Pastor Dennis will preach on Galatians 6:7-16  

Paul and Silas complete their second missionary journey by visiting Athens and Corinth. Paul reasoned with the Athenians and challenged the Corinthians where immorality was rampant in the pagan temples. He countered that practice with moving words about God’s love. Later on he wrote a letter to the Corinthians describing the love they should have for one another, modeled on God’s love for them that is patient and kind.

Serving Opportunities this summer:

Reading Buddies are needed throughout the summer for kids at three Marion Cares sites. You can volunteer on Mon/Wed or Tue/Thu and at 11:30-12:00 or 12:00-12:30. Adults and high schoolers are welcome to help keep youngsters’ reading skills on track throughout the summer. Contact rachel@marioncares.org or lisa@marioncares.org or call 319.377.5344 to sign up.

Feeding Lunch to Youth (FLY), Marion’s summer lunch program, serves children each week at eight locations. Members of Resurrection and other local churches make the sack lunches, deliver them, and clean up afterwards. If you would like to take part in this valuable program for the kids of our community, talk to LCR rep Jill Hansen. In addition, FLY always needs granola bars and regular ziploc bags (not the ones with sliders). Please place your donations in the marked bin near welcome center. Thank you!

TRANSFORM 2016 is our Adult Service Project this summer, through Matthew 25 in Cedar Rapids. Serve with other volunteers to take part in a variety of tasks in the Taylor (SW) neighborhood. Dates are July 11-15. More information is on the church entryway bulletin board and online at www.hub25.org.
