1 June 2010
Memorial Day has come and gone, and with graduation just around the corner Summer is swiftly approaching. As I have shared here previously, Summer brings a few exciting changes for us. First, our weekly Ramen Nights at Lounjin will be changing to once a month, the first Tuesday of each month. For those of you keeping track,TONIGHT is our monthly Ramen Night for June, and Tuesday, July 6 will be Ramen Night for July. A few Sinners and Saints regulars will be helping plan fun Summer events for June – September, and we’ll be holding our first annual Sinners & Saints Church retreat in August. Let me know if you would be interested in helping with either of these things. Keep an eye on the calendar below for great times ahead!
Also, to encourage us to get to know one another beyond the usual ‘how was your week’ that ends each Sunday Bible Study, we’ll be sharing our stories once a month. Join us for a Sunday gathering to learn what that looks like. Finally, THIS SUNDAY Alan and I will be out of town, and we’re inviting everyone who is in the area to gather at Mars Hill Graduate School for the Parish Collective, Sunday evening, from 6 to 9 pm. It looks like an interesting meeting of neighborhood churchplants on the West Coast, which could give us some great connections and ideas to bring back to the group. I had heard it was free, but the website I just accessed said there was a fee. If you’d like to just hang out with us, we’ll be back Sunday, June 13 for our regular meeting.
If you would like to meet for coffee and chat, just send me an email. I’d love to meet with you.
Peace to you this week,
- AUTO REPAIR & MAINTENANCE WORKSHOP
Alan and a few friends of S&S will be hosting an Auto Repair and Maintenance workshop focused on oil changes and brake rebuilding. They’re also thinking about an Auto Basics class in the future to cover the essentials every car owner should know. If you’re interested, let Alan know and he can let you know if space is available, and get you on the list of the Auto Basics class. The workshop is free, and will be scheduled on an upcoming Saturday morning. More details to come. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
