Mainstreeter Weekly Blast April 27, 2023

Mainstreeter Online Weekly Blast

At the Council meeting Monday (and the staff meeting the week before), we were talking about the characteristics that speak to us of home. There were some interesting responses: laughter, quiet, mischief, food, shared, common language and humor, fun, music, pets, fur family, nicknames, art, creativity, familiar, known, safe, welcoming.

Most of those (if not all) have some resonance in the congregation. Certainly, we've been intentional in our work to provide a welcoming safe space.

This Sunday, Peggy Drew takes the pulpit, and we're so glad that Main Street has created a space for several people to return to church.

p.s. If you have a fun welcome mat you can loan us for this series, please bring it in.

p.s.s. Since Main Street UMC donated bricks to the new Arts Center, we're invited as donors to tour the center tonight (see below for details).

A new Vestry Class is starting April 2nd at 9:00 a.m., running through June 11th.

Hearing a lot of buzz about the "end times" these days? Join us as we explore Craig C Hill's study, "In God's Time," which explores the way the Bible talks about the future from a perspective of mainstream Biblical scholarship. (Hint: the Bible does not give a roadmap for predicting the end of the world!) (Second hint: the Bible does not predict an end to the world!)

Led by Paul Pederzani and Pastor Kristy, group members will watch a video and then discuss. The group is always lively and all are welcome, either in person or online. Here's the zoom link:

For those who wish to supplement their personal study (not required), the accompanying book is available. A copy or two will be available on Sunday, with three more on order, and you can order your own (new or used) on amazon or through a bookseller of your choice.

We look forward to seeing you there!
