On Sunday, July 14, we will dedicate this summer's water offering for Open Table Nashville. Please bring your donation of bottled water to church that Sunday - from cases of 0.5l bottles (16.9oz) to jugs up to 2.5 gallons. Open Table will pass out the bottles as they check on homeless folks on the streets and in camps. Thank you for being part of this effort to save lives and make life outside a little more bearable!
Next Saturday, June 22, as part of Nashville’s Pride Month celebrations, more than 5000 people are expected to participate in our city’s first Pride Parade—5000, and that’s not counting the spectators that will line Broadway between 8th and 2nd Avenues! A group of about twenty folks from Vine Street will be in the parade to affirm the radical hospitality of God: all of us are made in the image of God; all of us are called to new life in Christ; and God is pouring out the Spirit on all flesh.
We will celebrate Pentecost on Sunday - God's outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all people. Don't know what to wear? Here are some suggestions! After worship we will meet in Fellowship Hall for brunch and to make "the other pledge" - how will you put the gifts of the Spirit to use in ministry? If you signed up for a brunch item, you may refer to this list to remember what it was. Thank you!
