Sunday, July 1 Living and Loving After Sexual Trauma
Led by: Deb Biggins and Worship Associate Eric van Baars – Living and loving after sexual trauma can be accomplished with lots of support, counseling and love. It is one of the most difficult experiences to admit and discuss. While you may never “get over” it, you can learn to deal with it and pack it away in the deepest recesses of your mind and move forward with your life. This service will focus on the journey of finding a voice, speaking out about the trauma and learning to no longer be a victim, but a survivor.
Summer RE will be offered at 10:30 during the month of July
Our program for this summer, is “Stories that Inspire”, an all-ages, story-based program that will happen in Fessenden Hall. Nursery care will be available.
There will be no Time for All Ages during the worship services over the summer, so children should be dropped off and picked up in Fessenden Hall.
This Sunday’s story and session on “The Lorax”, by Dr. Seuss, will be co-led by Kathy and Alan Kerns.

Out to Lunch Bunch
China City will be closed for vacation this Sunday, July 1. Some of us will be going to Panera’s, 4338 Kent Rd. in Stow. As the 10:30 service ends about 11:30 and is followed by coffee hour, we will aim to head over to Panera’s about 12:15.

Summertime = Hungry Time
We need donations for Kent social Services food programs.
Children are home from school with no breakfast or lunch programs; summer feeding initiatives reach only 10% of eligible children.
PLEASE bring in some child friendly food items – jelly & PB, mac n’ cheese mix, cereal, crackers, healthy snacks, canned pasta, dry pasta shapes & spaghetti sauce, canned fruit, 100% fruit juice, pudding cups, and gelatin mix.
Drop your items and brown paper grocery bags in the lower level closet next to the elevator . . . I’ll do the rest and get it where it needs to go. Acme gift cards are also welcome . . . please donate at the Acme Bucks table during coffee hour.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
