Condolences  Our hearts are with the family of Ramona “Dottie” Alsman.  Dottie, a member of Vermont Hills since 1955, passed away on May 25.

Peace with Justice Sunday  This Sunday is one of the UMC’s special Sundays.  And it’s needed now more than ever.  If you’re struggling with how you can help:
Read: How to be a stronger ally
Watch: Movies that confront systemic racism
Support:  How to support Black Lives Matter
Give: umcgiving.org/givepwjs

Blogging Your Feelings  Contact Pastor Bo if you would like to contribute to the church’s online blog.  No experience necessary; just put your thoughts and feelings on paper.

Online Auction  Bidding has begun!  Click on this link: vermonthillsumc.org/auction.  The password is vhumc.  Bidding will continue until noon on June 14.  Some of the items/services being offered:

Navajo Nation Relief  Your gift will go directly to the families who need it.  Mail your check to First United Methodist Church of Cortez, PO Box 1016, Cortez, CO 81321.  Mark checks on memo line for Navajo COVID Relief Project.  Thank you.

Itching to Get Outside? The church is in need of re-painting.  Pastor Bo has volunteered to prep areas, so that all you need to do is show up and paint. Email him at VHUMCpastor@gmail.com and arrange your time slot.

Giving  We have a new method of giving, the mobile app GivePlus.  Download the free app and find our church by entering the zip code, 97221, or Vermont Hills United Methodist.  If you already use our online giving, enter that username and password, or create a new account.  You can give either from your bank account or a credit card.  You have the option to add 1 – 2.65% to offset the fees charged to the church.

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 are meeting in the circle drive at the church when the weather isn’t too threatening.  Every Tuesday at 1:00 pm.  If you’d like to be included in their email list, please notify 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.
