Grace and peace to each of you as we begin the new month of June.
I have some good news to share with you today! We have a new Church Secretary, Tracy Williams. She will begin working at CCC this Tuesday Her regular hours will be Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. She comes to us with much experience having worked in varied settings, including eleven years as a Patient Financial Advisor during the night shift in the Emergency Room at a Homestead Hospital.
Lorrie LeGrand and I very much enjoyed interviewing Tracy. I predict that she will be a real asset to the church. Stop by the office to say “hi” and introduce yourself. I’m sure you’ll enjoy getting to know her and will be greeted by her lovely smile.
June will be a busy month at CCC. Be sure to be present this Sunday as everyone is invited to help put together the Period Packs after worship. We received a $250 Matching Grant from Church World Service to buy materials for these necessities for women and girls.
Today is National Gun Violence Awareness Day. This is also Wear Orange Weekend to bring awareness to the gun violence crisis, so if you’d like, plan to wear orange on Sunday.
On June 11th there will be a Justice Luncheon after worship with Jennifer Solomon, President and Founder of PFLAG, Miami, as our speaker.
All month long is Gay Pride Month, so as an Open and Affirming Church, we celebrate our gay members and friends, and are their allies. Members Tracy and Jessica Nodarse, and Miriam Grissett participated in the Gay Pride Parade in Miami Beach recently, representing our church as allies of PFLAG.
I could add more, but count on you to pay attention to announcements in the worship bulletin and in our weekly e-blast.
Looking forward to being in worship with you in the Sanctuary or on Facebook as we celebrate Holy Communion together this Sunday.
In Christ’s love,
