Catch Up with the Current Series:
BELONG // LAST MOMS’ GROUP OF THE SPRING!
This Wednesday is the last moms’ group meeting of the spring semester. The group will meet at 9:30 at Liz Wheeler’s home (120 Sumner Road). Come early to get your kid(s) settled with the babysitters; childcare is available for $5. There is no need to prepare for discussion this month; make sure not to miss this last gathering!
BELONG // FAMILY RETREAT 2019
We’re trying something new this year with Revolution’s 1st Family Retreat in Berkeley Springs, WV! Our hope is that Family Retreat will be a time of rest, fun, and connection for the members of our Revolution family. Whether you’re new to camping or an old pro, Family Retreat is for you, and we hope you’ll join us! Save the date for May 16-19, 2019 (but feel free to come late or leave early). WE WILL STILL HAVE CHURCH AT GERMANTOWN ON SUNDAY, MAY 19. For more information, go to revolutionannapolis.com/familyretreat.
BECOME // BLOOD DRIVE JUNE 9
Revolution will be hosting our first blood drive of 2019 on June 9! The AAMC BloodMobile will be on-site all morning, and we really hope everyone will plan to either come a bit early or stay a bit later in order to make time to donate. Donating blood has an immediate impact on the lives of our neighbors, and it’s one of the most meaningful ways we can support the city we love. Our church has been a faithful partner to AAMC for years—let’s keep up the good work and give!
BELONG // REVMIDDLE AND REVHIGH
If you are a middle schooler or high schooler, Revolution’s new youth group will be meeting during second service on Sunday! 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.
BECOME // SHARING YOUR STORY
Over the last month, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
BELONG // SUMMER GROUPS
Here at Revolution, some of our groups shut down over the summer…but not all of them! There are still opportunities to connect and grow, and we would love for you to be a part of them. To learn more about our current group offerings, click HERE.
BECOME // SUPPLYING A LOCAL FOOD PANTRY
A local food pantry has opened in the Harbor House community, and they have a need for paper grocery bags! Bags are often available for donation at local grocery stores, which is where you come in: the next time you go to the store, please take a moment to ask Customer Service if they have bags they would be willing to donate. You can drop off the bags on Sunday mornings at the Welcome + Info table, or you can give them directly to Edward Giard, who will be acting as our point person with this project. Lastly, this is an ongoing need, so even if you can’t help this week, there will be more opportunities to give as we move forward with this exciting and important initiative!
BELIEVE // LEARN MORE ABOUT FLOURISH
The "Flourish" project aspires to connect people here and around the country with serving opportunities in their local communities. If you are interested in this project and would like to learn more, or even help out, please let Josh know by sending him a quick email at email@example.com.
BECOME // ONLINE GIVING
If you would like to give to this and other ministries in Annapolis, please consider setting up re-occurring giving through our safe, secure web portal here.
