Learn About the ‘Givenness of Things’ this Summer

As Disciples of Christ, we don’t check our brains at the church door! That’s one of the reasons the adult Christian education group will be reading this summer The Givenness of Things: Essays, by the award-winning author Marilynne Robinson (Gilead, for example).

“A sense of wonder pervades the powerful essays,” says another provocative writer, Karen Armstrong, about The Givenness of Things in the New York Times Book Review. “Robinson's heroic lamentation is magnificent… [her] insistence, throughout these essays, that we recognize the limitations of our knowledge, is timely and important.” One of Time’s top nonfiction books of 2015, there’s no doubt conversation will be lively starting June 3. Pick up a copy at your favorite retailer in paperback or digital form, and then make plans to join in Sundays at 9 a.m. in Fellowship Hall.


The Lucky One

Join Vine Street at the Movies on June 6 for a showing of the film Logan Lucky. Two southern brothers stage an Ocean’s Eleven-type heist with the help of the less than competent Bang brothers, a “gang” led by the very non–suave and non-sophisticated Daniel Craig. (Rated PG-13). Everyone will meet in the Bride’s Room at 7 p.m. that evening.


Seeking Caregivers in the Nursery

On June 17 and June 24 we are in need of volunteers for the church nursery. Special people are needed to assist from 9:30 to 11:15 am on those Sundays. Volunteers will be helping rock babies, stack blocks, read books, and play with play-dough. If you would like to volunteer for one or more Sunday, please contact Katie McLaughlin (


Women to Meet

Serenity Circle will meet on Tuesday, June 12. Ladies, please join us at 6 p.m. in Fellowship Hall for fun and encouraging fellowship. If you’d like to be added to the email list, contact Kathy Zamata (
