DPC’s sewing group is gaining new members! So if you haven’t come in a while or you’ve always been curious to try it out, July is a great time to come! They will meet on Wednesday, July 6 from noon to 4PM in DPC’s conference room.
Contact Betty Tills if you are interested in helping with our mission. No sewing required.
DPC’s long-awaited rummage sale is finally upon us! At DPC, folks have already been hard at work getting many items ready to sell. But there’s still time for you to get involved!!
You can talk to Carol Buech, Chrys Gregoire or Jessica Driscoll if you’re interested in helping out. Folks will be at church setting up Monday, June 13, Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15.
Then, June 16-18 are the days of the actual rummage sale. On those days, we’ll need people around to help out with ringing people up, restocking our shelves and answering questions for shoppers.
On the evening of June 18, we’ll also need help with tearing down, and getting unsold items where they need to be. You can also donate baked goods, as we’ll have a bake sale too. Any way you can help will be greatly appreciated!
What’s Growing in the Food for the Journey Community Garden!
With the garden planted, it’s time to start thinking about volunteering again! For the time being, we need volunteers to weed and water the garden. As time goes on, we will need people to harvest, to drive food to distribution points and to help hand it out! You can click the link below to sign up, or talk to Lori Petersen!
Food for the Journey is branching out!!! We are excited to announce that there are 2 new gardens being planted this year. One is at the Dickson Hollow Presbyterian senior living home in Menomonee Falls. The residents there will tend this garden as their way of continuing to be active and reaching out to their community. The second is at North Shore Presbyterian Church of Shorewood. There will be a dedication service this Sunday, June 12 at noon. Come join Pastor Nikki (DPC), Pastor Matt Lee(Kettle Moraine United Presbyterian Church) and Pastor Nicole Melara (interim pastor, North Shore Presbyterian Church) in dedicating the garden! Pastor Nicole has has sent the following invitation:
Come join North Shore Presbyterian Church(4048 N Bartlett Ave, Shorewood, WI 53211) in celebration of 100 years of ministry! On Sunday, June 12th at 10AM, you’re invited to worship with us in a celebration of special music, presentations and prayers followed by a pot-luck luncheon where members will be sharing show & tell memories. After that, we’ll be enjoying a strawberry shortcake dessert (an homage to our old Strawberry Festival), and we’ll be dedicating our new Food for the Journey garden beds as we walk with the Spirit into our next 100 years of ministry! If you can’t make it on June 12th, please consider joining us on Thursday, June 16th at 7PM (our actual anniversary date), for a 100-minute long service of thanksgiving outside on our patio. What a blessing to serve in God’s kin(g)dom!
Due to enhanced COVID safety protocols at DPC, the Bible study group has decided to hit “pause” on our Bible study until we will be able to meet in-person again. This means that we will resume our Bible study on February 20. It will be in the conference room at 11 AM. We will look at some of the historical context of the book of Genesis, as well as different genres of writing that appear in the book. Understanding these things will help us to understand the book moving forward.
