Catch Up with the Current Series:
BELIEVE // OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT BAPTISM
We are hoping to celebrate a Baptism Sunday in September! If you have never been baptized and you have questions about it, 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!
BELONG // SEPTEMBER 28 SCAVENGER HUNT!
On September 28, Revolution will be having a church-wide scavenger hunt throughout downtown Annapolis, followed by a church cookout. It will be an awesome time to share in some fun, make new friends, and have a good time in the city our church calls home! Sign up today at revolutionannapolis.com/hunt!
BELIEVE // SHE READS TRUTH & HE READS TRUTH RESOURCES
Revolution is participating in a beta test with the She Reads Truth & He Reads Truth apps. These apps provide users with multiple Bible translations with daily devotional guides. We would love for everyone at Revolution to be reading their Bible throughout the week, and these apps are a great tool to guide you as you do so. For example, both apps have a reading plan on James- the book of the Bible we’re studying in our current sermon series! To receive Revolution’s free code and for more details, email email@example.com.
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.
BECOME // NEEDS AT GERMANTOWN ELEMENTARY
As the school year approaches, there are several ways we can all support our friends at Germantown Elementary School, who host our church services each Sunday! The first is by signing up to help with one of their most successful fundraisers each year: operating a parking lot for Navy football home games! The first game this year is on August 31, which is before school starts. This means they are anxious about having sufficient volunteers…which is where we can come in! If you can help meet this need, sign up today HERE. In the weeks to come, we will be sharing more opportunities to partner with Germantown…let’s show this school generosity and kindness this fall that will amaze them!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
BECOME // BLOOD DRIVE SEPTEMBER 29
The fires have been put out, the BloodMobile has been repaired, and we are finally ready for our Fall Blood Drive! Please make an effort to join us in supporting Anne Arundel Medical Center and our friends and neighbors by donating blood on September 29! The BloodMobile will be on site at Germantown Elementary all morning, so eat a healthy breakfast and make a plan to show up a bit early or stay a bit late so you can donate. There really is no easier, more practical, or more meaningful way for us to care for the people of our community: your blood saves lives.
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.
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.
