June 21, 2020: Regathering: What do you think?

Regathering: what do you think?
A fantastic team of creative members of Church of the Resurrection have been hard at work these last two weeks to imagine what it would take and what it might look like to begin gathering again in person. Doing so within the necessary safety guidelines will require some real collaboration and flexibility, and we're very eager to hear what you think, and what you would be interested in showing up to do together. Please take a few minutes to fill out this short survey this week so we can do our best to tailor our plan to what the congregation most wants! The survey will be open until June 26. If you would like to lend your energy towards the effort of regathering in one form or another, please email Rev. Liz.

Huge Success for the Monument Crisis Center
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Our Food Drive last Sunday was a massive success! Many thanks to all who donated, and also for spreading the word so effectively: we saw countless new faces who had heard from friends that this was happening and made the effort to show up. There was a near constant parade of cars through the parking lot, with only a few occasional minutes of quiet. By the end of the two hours, we'd collected 13 barrels of food - the same amount we collected during the whole of Lent, and enough to feed a family of four for a whole year. Way to go! And the goodwill continues: there will be a barrel outside at church, ready for your donations, between 9 and 3 every Sunday and Wednesday. Please swing by! They are particularly in need of low-sugar breakfast cereal, peanut butter, tuna, and canned vegetables. Thank you! Check out the huge MCC van, filled to the ceiling with your generosity! 

Zoom Coffee Hour continues!
It has been a sweet joy to come together for a coffee hour on Zoom! Join us again this Sunday for this informal time to check in with one another, hear how everyone is doing, and just enjoy seeing each other's faces! We'll gather at 11:30 Sunday morning, so you'll have time to get a treat and pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee. Contact the office for the Zoom link.
