Outdoor Service
This Sunday, June 27, at 10:00 am.  As we move slowly, but surely, back to “normal”, we ask that you still wear a mask and observe distancing.  We know that children and some adults are unable, or choose not to be vaccinated, and we want to honor everyone’s comfort level.  Things to know:

  • bring your own lawn chair, if possible
  • masks will be required, especially during singing (yes! we will sing!)
  • the plates will not be passed during the offertory prayer, but will be available before and after the service for you to drop in your pledge/giving
  • please help clean up after the service if you can
  • worship will be simulcast on Zoom for those who can’t attend (link above)

Help Needed at Beaverton Pride!
We are hosting a booth at the Beaverton Pride event this Sunday, June 27, from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.  We know it’s going to be the hottest day…ever…but we need people to help by putting on a sincere smile, handing out giveaways, and sharing God’s love with those who are often hurt by the “church.”  Please sign up here for a one-hour shift (bring your own chair!)  The organizers are providing free water bottles (with refills), misting stations, and booths under the shade of trees as much as possible. Read more about the event at https://www.pridebeaverton.org/

Goodbye and Thank You!
After 21 years at VHUMC, Joy Wegner will be retiring at the end of the summer.  We will celebrate her ministry on a date TBA.  Please pray for her and Scott, and SPRT as they search for her replacement.

Sunday Morning Summer Changes
BrainStorming with Bo is on summer hiatus.  Worship will begin at 10:00 am for the summer.

GoFundMe
We have chosen to use gofundme.com to raise funds to re-pave our parking lot.  We have put up banners so that others who use our parking lot (gardeners, preschool families, etc) can pitch in.  We’re challenging everyone at VHUMC to make a small donation, to generate enthusiasm and “buzz” for the fundraiser.  You can also share the link after you donate.  Go to https://gofund.me/64415058 and let’s kick it off!  Thanks!

Q Camp
One of our UMC camps, Camp Magruder, is launching Q Camp, a weekend camp for LGBTQ young adults July 30-Aug 1.  Help spread the word to friends and family.  You can support this endeavour to make a safe, sacred space for this community at gocamping.org.  Kids, family, adult, and multigenerational camps are also available this summer.
