1. Kids’ Small Groups end next week. The last day of regular kids’ small groups is next Sun., Jun. 29. Beginning July 6, we will have nursery and preschool kids’ small groups only. Older kids will worship with their families throughout the service, and we’ll have kids’ worship bags full of cool stuff to help kids engage with the service—or just zone out while they color. Be sure to thank your kid’s Small Group Leaders for their love and hard work over the last year!
2. Next Sunday is AFAC Sunday at Restoration: Lots of Restoration folks serve at the Arlington Food Assistance Center. Next Sun., Jun. 29, there will be an AFAC table outside after church—stop by and visit, and please bring a box of low-sugar cereal to donate. And wear an AFAC t- shirt if you’ve got one! Don’t forget to sign up for Restoration’s fourth-Tuesday food distribution shift: restorationarlington.org/ministries/ outreach/local.
3. Apply for an Outreach grant: The Outreach Steering Team provides personal and project funding for Restoration folks involved in outreach activities that align with Restoration’s outreach and strategic goals. Grant applications are due July 5. For more information, contact Liz: Go to restorationarlington.org/contact and choose “Outreach.”
4. We need you to help Bridge the Gap. The Bridging the Gap team is continuing its efforts to serve Washington-Lee High School. We’re partnering with Young Life to build relationships with students at W-L and working towards forming a club. Interested in being part of this? Come find out more on Tues., Jul. 8th, at 7:30 pm. For more details, go to restorationarlington.org/contact and choose “Youth Ministry.”
5. Please pray for the ACNA: Every few years, the Anglican Church in North America (the denomination to which we belong) meets for Provincial Assembly, a time of worship, teaching, prayer, and strengthening our life together. The Assembly meets this week, Jun. 25– 28. Several Restoration people are representing our Diocese as delegates: David Hanke, Scott Buckhout, Collin Chartier, and Rebecca Harper; Clay, Erin, and Liz will be there as well. Please pray for them and for the whole Assembly. And pray for our new Archbishop, who will have been elected by the time you read this!
6. Prayer at 4: Come to the Treehouse (2nd floor) each Sunday from 4– 4:30 pm to pray. We pray for our worship service, for each other, for whatever’s going on in the world that we care about. These meetings are lively, varied, and lots of fun. All are welcome—including kids.
7. Can we pray for you? Every Sunday, there are teams of trained prayer ministers at the front of the sanctuary who would love to pray for you. Nothing’s too big or too small to be prayed for. Just make your way to the front after the service.
