We Need Your Feedback!  Would you please take this 2-minute, 7-question, anonymous survey?  Thanks so much!


Fifth Sunday Game Night  This Sunday, 4 – 6 pm.  Let the games begin!

Sunnyside Community House (SCH)  We have begun a new partnership with the former Sunnyside UMC.  SCH provides “radical hospitality,” by offering weekly meals, regular day shelter, clothing exchange, showers, and a warm and friendly place for anybody in need.  There are numerous ways to help.  See the trunk by the office for material items to donate.  Visit our website for other ways to assist this very worthy cause.

National Night Out  Let’s go meet our neighbors on Tuesday, August 7, at this annual event, held at Alpenrose Dairy.  Beginning at 7:00 pm, we will be offering balloons, glow sticks, and our special charm to everyone who attends.  Let’s spread the word that God loves us all.

Picnic in the Park  Join with other Reconciling United Methodists on Saturday, August 11 for an afternoon of sharing and caring.  Beaverton First UMC will provide the grilled meat; attendees are to bring side dishes.  The fun begins at 3:00 at BFUMC; please RSVP to the church office by August 1.

Car Needed  Bob Proudy, a missionary in Australia with ties to VHUMC, will be in the Portland area next month and needs the use of a car.  If you have a car he could borrow, please contact Virginia Ottmar at 503.246.7346.

Continuing…  Two groups continue to meet throughout July: Bible Study, Wednesdays at 7:00 pm; and Talk N Thought Book Group, Tuesdays at 1:00 pm.  Both will be starting new books soon!

International Opportunity  Our UMC Conference is hosting an event in late August for United Methodists from around the world.  A dozen participants will be arriving 2-3 days before the event and will need housing and some transportation.  If you’d be interested in being a host, please contact the church office for more information.
