The Loop / October 8, 2019
Catch Up with the Current Series:
BECOME // ONLINE GIVING
If you would like to give to our ministry in Annapolis, please consider setting up re-occurring giving through our safe, secure web portal HERE.
BELIEVE // WRITING YOUR OWN PSALM OF LAMENT
As we discuss grief and lament in our current Sunday sermon series, we want to invite you to compose your own cry--or “psalm”--of lament along with us. Our hope is that this exercise will be helpful for you (and helpful for all of us) as we learn to identify, experience, and address hurt in our lives. If you would like to participate, you can find some useful guidelines and examples HERE. If you choose to write a psalm and you are comfortable with sharing, please consider sending it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. THIS SUNDAY, we are hoping to read some of the psalms written by our own congregation anonymously as part of a special plan for that service. We will ask for consent from everyone whose writing will be shared! Please consider joining us in this practice.
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.
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).
BELONG // REVMIDDLE AND REVHIGH
If you are a middle schooler or high schooler, Revolution’s youth group meets during second service on Sundays! Make sure to be there…and if you have any questions, please get in touch with our team leader, Shawn Livingston, at email@example.com.
