-July Happenings-

*MOVIE NIGHT!  Join us for a wonderful movie “I Can Only Imagine” on Wednesday evening, July 18th at Orono UMC. We will share a potluck supper starting at 6pm, with the movie beginning around 6:45-7:00. 

 

*We are looking for items to create “Blessing Bags” which will be shared with folks at the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter.  Donations including: lotion, sunscreen, band aids, granola bars, chap stick with sunscreen, flip flops, bus passes, shampoo, small laundry soaps, and Shaw’s gift cards (alcohol free) may be dropped in the box either outside the sanctuary, or downstairs near the fellowship hall.  Deadline: July 22. Thank you!

 

*Dr. Kelli will provide a presentation about her experiences in Haiti, along with information about the ministry group she is associated with during our fellowship time after worship on Sunday, August 5th.

 

*Looking ahead:  We are excited to have some excellent resources set-up as adult study gets underway in September, including “The Wesleyan Way” book/DVD series.  This study features a book and DVD interviews highlighting how contemporary leaders are putting into practice Christianity practiced by John Wesley.  We are also planning on diving into a new book called “Answering Questions about the United Methodist Church.”  This is a very helpful, practical book about topics like baptism, the Holy Spirit, how the Lord’s Supper came to be, along with many other topics that people ask questions about.  We’re looking forward to September (but let’s not rush summah!)
