Staying Connected

Need two ushers for June 24: at least one experienced. Please contact

Hey You!  Yes, you.  You are competent, faithful, and informed.  You’re exactly what the church needs right now.  We’re looking for those who would like to help out, once a month or so, with ushering, hosting coffee, running the slideshow, or being liturgist.  (Repeat: “I am competent, faithful, and informed.”)  Talk to Bryan, Virginia, or Pastor Bo about where you want to serve.

Ice Cream Social  Plan to stick around after worship this Sunday for some yummy frozen confection!  Sponsored by the Finance and Trustees teams.

Pastor’s Pub Chat  Join us on Tuesday, June 19 at 7:00 at The Lodge at Cascade Brewing, 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy.  Always good food, lively conversation, and a tempting selection of beers and wines.  This month’s topic may be found here.

Love Unbound  Four of the “West Hills Churches” will be doing the same series in July and August, based on the book, God Unbound.  The author, Elaine Heath, “urges the church to boldly follow the Holy Spirit’s leadership beyond buildings and programs to join what Jesus is doing in the world.”  Get your Kindle or paperback copy today; contact the church office if you can provide a book or two to those who may not have the funds.

Community Rewards Cash  Apologies to everyone who has attempted to link their Fred Meyer Rewards Card!  Evidently, they upgraded their system shortly after we were assigned our number and we were lost in the shuffle.  We will let you know our new number as soon as possible!

Musical Theatre  Will Mitchell’s sister, Sarah Maines, is performing this weekend and next, in “The Light in the Piazza,” at The University of Portland.  Tickets and more information available at

Sacred Everyday  If you haven’t heard, this is becoming a bit of a phenomenon!  The blogs being written by six of our own (Dori, Sara, Katie, John, Charlie, and Bryan) are gaining global attention.  Read along at  or follow VHUMC on Facebook.

Prayer Chain  Please email your prayer requests to If you do not have access to email, you may call Linda Miller at 503.929.6696.  The ‘Prayers of the People’ is crafted each week from this information. 

Progressive Bible Study  We’re finishing up the gospel of Mark soon and taking a break.  If you would like to experience a “no-commitment, no-strings-attached” sample of our fun and thoughtful study, come Wednesday night at 7pm in the Fireside Room.

Ushers:            Ramona Alsman, Pat Crawford, Dori Killion
