Music is Back!  Joy has conquered the technology and will be playing this Sunday during our online worship for Palm Sunday.   We will be celebrating the sacrament of communion again so bring a beverage that originates from the earth – coffee, tea, juice – and share an inverse version of ‘breaking the bread.’

SW Hope Food Drive  Just a reminder that this important drive for Neighborhood House runs through April 4.  Most of their fundraising events had to be canceled, so please donate online at nhpdx.org/sw-hope as you are able.  Their website allows you to associate your gift with VHUMC. The website also offers you an opportunity to participate in a virtual 5K run!

Mondays with the DS  Our District Superintendent, Erin Martin, is leading an hour of scripture, prayer, and sharing every Monday at noon.  Join her here.

BrainStorming with Bo  Videos and podcasts are available on our website, vermonthillsumc.org.

Amazon Smile  Do you shop online? Amazon will donate a small percentage to VHUMC for every eligible purchase.  You must designate Vermont Hills as your charity of choice and start at smile.Amazon.com every visit.  Contact the church office with any questions.

Fred Meyer Community Rewards  If you shop at Freddy’s, please make sure to link your FM Rewards card with Vermont Hills United Methodist Church (code SY323) and the church will receive a percentage of all your purchases.  It costs you nothing and you still receive all your usual benefits.

Talk N Thought  The “dynamite” ladies of TnT have made the tough decision to suspend meetings until further notice.  If you’d like to be notified when they resume, please email Linda Miller.

Prayer Chain  Email your prayer requests to PrayerVHUMC@gmail.com. If you do not have access to email, you may call Linda Miller at 503.699.8628.  The ‘Prayers of the People’ is crafted weekly from this information; please indicate if your prayer is private.
