Upcoming Meetings:

There will be a board meeting on Tuesday, June 22nd at 7:00 pm. Our Regional Minister Rev. Allen Harris will be joining us for our board meeting. The item on the agenda is to discuss the pastoral transition plan. If you have any questions about this or would like to know more, you are welcome to attend the meeting.

A meeting for Congregational Conversation will be held next Sunday, June 27th at 9:30am. This meeting will be focused on the upcoming change in pastoral leadership. This meeting is open to all members of the church.

There will be a few representatives from the Akron Urban League at our church on Sunday, June 27th. After our 10:45 am worship service they will be sharing with our Sisters-in-Christ, as well as anyone who would like to attend, more about the baby backpack program that we are helping to gather supplies for. There will be a light lunch provided for those who wish to attend. If you plan on joining us, please let Holly or Ali know.

Mission Opportunity:

The Sisters in Christ are taking on a new mission project. We will be helping the Akron Urban League provide 30 back packs filled with baby supplies for expectant and new mothers who are in need of some extra help with these resources.

The entire month of July will be focused on gathering the supplies needed for the backpacks. We will kick off the month of giving on Sunday July 4th, with a “Big Give Day.” On that day we ask that you bring to church as many of the items you wish to bring from the following needs list. After this initial giving, the remainder of the Sundays in July will focus on specific items from the list. We will keep you posted on what those items will be. If you wish to contribute monetarily, feel free to do so. Please mark your check or online giving with “Baby Mission” so we know what it is for.

More information will be coming but don’t hesitate to reach out to Holly or Ali with any questions.

Our family has been blessed in so many ways by all the experiences we have had and all the personal interactions we have been part of over these years.

A Note From the Allen Family: Thank you to the/our church family for the thoughts and prayers you all have given us.  Thank you Jim and Ali for the beautiful service you provided and to Rose for the funeral dinner for Nancy.  The Allen Family .. Terri, Kyrstin, Brianna and Dave

Pentecost Worship Options This Weekend

It has felt like summer all week in Northeast Ohio, and it is the perfect weather to launch our Drive-In service which will meet every other week until September.

Here are your worship options for Pentecost (May 23)

9am – An Indoor worship experience focusing on scripture, message, and communion. This is also the service that will be posted on YouTube later in the morning. This service will conclude in time for people to attend Sunday School at 9:30am. At least for the short term we are asking people to wear masks, but this may change in coming weeks.

10:45am – An outdoor experience during which we can sing together without wearing masks. Steve will be leading us in songs, and worship will have some interactive elements. Bring your own chair or sit in your car if you prefer.

So whether you want to worship inside or outside, in person or online, there will be a worship option for you this weekend at the New Horizons Christian Church.

Upcoming Meetings: Elders (June 1); Board (June 8); Ohio Commission on Ministry meeting in our building (June 15).
