Outreach
Senior Services-  In the past there were very few options for people who needed care during their senior years.  Today, however, there are a bewildering array of choices available ranging from practical help in your home to complicated long-term medical care.  As with anything, knowledge gives you the power to choose wisely. Come to this presentation on Sunday, July 29 at 9am in the Chapel to learn more about the choices available.

Children & Families Ministry-   is seeking a loving, caring adult to help in our nursery during our 10am service.  A few Sundays a month would be a blessing. Please contact Linda Sawyer for more information at family@popwh.org. 

We Are Looking for YOU! Our wonderful children are looking for Sunday school teachers to share their Love of Jesus with them. You need only help once a month during the 10am service. You do not need to prepare anything, just come and help our youngest parishioners though crafts & snack. We will be having a Leaders Meeting on Sunday, August 5, at 9am in Taylor Hall. If you have any further questions please contact Linda Sawyer at family@popwh.org  God Bless You!

 Health Ministry Newsletter-  Our exploration of the Model for Healthy Living continues with a focus on Work.  Work is a reality of life, yet we often look at work as stressful drudgery. It's something we have to do to live and at times, something we do to prove our self worth. Interestingly, we tend to think of the work we do to support ourselves as different from the work we do in service to the church. Pick up a copy of the newsletter from the narthex to read about how the Bible looks at work or, to read now, Click here.

The Community Dinner- will host around 70 homeless guests on Saturday, July 28 at 5pm. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Elizabeth Bates at  elizabethbatescd@gmail.com .

Discipleship
The Way of Love- As a part of Fr. Rand's Sunday sermon about the Christian walk, a portion of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry's opening sermon at the General Convention was shared calling on members of the Episcopal Church to embrace a spiritual walk that can help lead us to a Jesus-centered life. He called it "The Way of Love." Rand offers this for you to adopt as a rule for your life:
1.Turn: Pause, listen and choose to follow Jesus.
2. Learn: Reflect daily on scripture, especially the life and teachings of Jesus.
3. Pray: Spend time with God in prayer every day.
4. Worship: Gather in community for worship every week.
5. Bless: Share one's faith and find ways to serve other people.
6. Go: Move beyond your comfort & witness to the love of God in words and action.
7. Rest: Dedicate time for restoration and wholeness.
May you be known for the way you walk the life of Christian faith.
 
Prayer Shawl Ministry-   The next Prayer Shawl Workshop is Saturday, July 28 at 10am in the Chapel, and is open to all knitters as well as those who would like to learn!   Please contact Kathryn Reasoner for more information.

Labyrinth Walk-  Thursday, July 19 from 6:30-8pm. Come walk the labyrinth with love in your heart and joy in your steps. For more information, please contact Chantel Zimmerman.

Coming this Fall-  Beginning September 9, our children will embark on an adventure to learn what  it means to go into the world and teach others about Jesus. They will see that there is "No Mission Impossible" for those that trust in God's purpose for their lives. Our children will see a church  team go to the country of Kazakhstan and carry out a mission project as well as learn how their own church has carried out missions projects in Uganda.
