LITURGICAL COLOR: GREEN
The paraments – the cloths on the cross and pulpit – are now green signifying we are in a period of “ordinary time” in the church year. The Ordinary Time that follows after Pentecost is known as Kingdomtide. This period will continue until the Season of Advent begins. During Ordinary Time we study Scripture texts that encourage us to mature in our daily expressions of faith so that we become more holy and whole persons.

NEW SOCK AND UNDERWEAR DRIVE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH RESTORE
Our friends at Restore asked us to partner with them in purchasing new socks and underwear drive for school age children in the greater Riverview Community to be distributed in time for the beginning of the new school year in August.
We encourage the following sizes:
Girls Bottoms – sizes 4 through 16
Boys Bottoms – sizes 4 through 20
Girls Socks – sizes 5 through 11
Boys Socks – sizes 4 through 10
Please place new packages of socks and underwear ‘under the trees’ in the Worship Center.
