Please come out and join us this Saturday for a day of food and fun! We will be gathering at 10am for a Scavenger Hunt in downtown Annapolis before heading back to the Wheelers’ home for a picnic in the early afternoon. The event is free, and we are really hoping that it can be a fun and easy way to make deeper connections in our community.

BECOME // BLOOD DRIVE SEPTEMBER 29
Here we go again!! The BloodMobile is back from the mechanic, it has been rehabbed from the fire, the technicians are trained, the schedule is staffed, there is gas in the tank and the BloodMobile is ready to come back to Revolution! Our Fall Blood Drive will be held on September 29. The team from AAMC will be on site all morning, so please make a plan to arrive early, stay late, and take part in this incredibly meaningful and practical way of supporting our community. Donating blood saves lives - it really is that clear and that simple! We are proud to be a consistent partner for the BloodMobile here in Anne Arundel County, and we really, really hope that our church can continue to lead the way in this area!
BECOME // SHARING YOUR STORY
Over the last few months, we have introduced story sharing into our regular Sunday services. We believe that sharing stories is one of the most important ways we connect with one another, encourage one another, and support one another in our journeys. It’s through our stories that we truly understand we are not alone, and that our beliefs about God and faith grow when we talk about them! If you would be interested in sharing a story about your life, faith, or questions at Revolution—even anonymously—you can learn more about how to do that by talking with Fred Miller, who will be serving as our Storytelling Coordinator this year. He would love to hear from you! You can reach Fred by email at email@example.com.
BELIEVE // OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT BAPTISM
We will be celebrating a few baptisms soon, and if you would like to learn more about what baptism is, why it is important to us at Revolution, or if you have questions about being baptized, please email Kenny at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no pressure, and he would love to talk with you about your questions about this very important part of Christian belief, teaching, and practice!
BECOME // MOMS GROUP
Returning this fall to Revolution, our Moms Group will be meeting now on the THIRD THURSDAY of each month at the home of Liz Wheeler: 120 Sumner Lane, Annapolis. We will begin meeting on Thursday, September 19th from 9:15-11:00 am. Our first meeting will just be a time to catch up with one another and introduce our future study topic, which will be a Bible study by Kelly Minter on the books of 1-3 John. Generally childcare is offered ($5 per mom), but on this first week we will have the kids with us while we drink coffee and socialize.
BECOME // FURNITURE DONATIONS FOR THE HARBOR HOUSE COMMUNITY
Our friends in the Harbor House community are in need of donated furniture to help out their new neighbors this summer! The “Sophisticated Grands,” a group of grandmothers in the neighborhood who help provide food and practical supplies for others in their community, have asked us to help them restock their supply center. If you have extra furniture you would be willing to donate, please let Kenny know and he will help coordinate a way to drop it off. This is a tremendous way to help the people of the Harbor House neighborhood by supporting the leaders in that community! Please consider making a gift this week.
BELIEVE // SOUP AND BOOK STUDY
Fred and Cathy Miller are hosting a soup dinner and book study that meets quarterly to explore cultural and spiritual themes of interest to inquiring Christians. Diverse views are welcome, and all interested people are welcome to attend. The next meeting is Sunday, October 20, 4:00pm-5:30pm, with a soup meal following. Study is based on the book, "Rising Out of Hatred – The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist" by Derek Black (nephew of David Duke). Please read as much as possible to participate in discussion. Meeting is at the Millers, 500 Wilson Road, Annapolis, 21401. RSVP is appreciated (text Cathy at 717-602-6917).
