Worship Info for 8/14/2022

We continue our sermon series called “Transforming our SoL II” with the second in a series of sermons based on the book “Restart Your Church” by Rev. Dr. Dottie Escobedo-Frank. Pastor Dottie is an Elder in the Desert Southwest Conference, serving as Senior Pastor at Paradise Valley United Methodist Church. In “Restart,” she offers a recipe for churches considering revitalization, which historically hasn’t worked, suggesting instead they follow a model inspired by our defining story as Christians: Christ’s death and resurrection.

Many of you will recall that last Fall, we introduced “Transforming our SoL” as part of our Capital Campaign fundraising effort. This Sunday, we’re bring this theme back, as we have another opportunity to be transformed as we strive to Make Disciples and grow our church.

CELEBRATION OF LIFE TONIGHT FOR OLIN OLSON
This evening at 6:30pm we will celebrate the life of Olin Olson, who tragically died on June 11 at the age of 43. All are invited to attend. Olin is survived by his only daughter, Trinity Olson, and will be greatly missed by her as well as other family members and friends.

COVID 19 Update
We’re still watching the local COVID 19 case numbers, but as most of Arizona, including Maricopa County, has been downgraded to “Medium Risk,” masks are not currently recommended/required indoors. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, you are welcome to do so.
