Our Next Cereal Drive!
It’s time for another cereal drive to help feed the need in our community! On Sunday, May 30th, during Memorial Day weekend, we will host an extended collection drive after worship until 3:00PM to collect cereal and shelf-stable milk for Neighbors in Need. Cash and online donations and $25 Market Basket gift cards are also welcome.
This season, Neighbors in Need’s work includes operating its nine food pantries, all of which have reopened, as well as their Infants in Need program providing diapers, formula, and other baby products to families with small children. And thank you to all who contributed to the special Easter Offering: through that program alone, $900 was shared with Neighbors in Need!
Book Study: "The Heart of Christianity"
Pastor Adam is leading a book study on The Heart of Christianity: Rediscovering a Life of Faith by Marcus Borg. An instant classic since its 2003 publication, this books helps us reclaim timeless elements of Christian faith in our contemporary, post-modern American context.
Open to people inside and outside the church, this study takes place on Monday evenings from 7:00PM-8:30PM from April 19 to May 24. You can purchase your own copy or buy one for $18 (by check to BVUC).
Contact pastor@ bvuc.org to register and for the Zoom information.
