This conversation sheet offers families and individuals a source of reflection and discussion around this week's scripture lesson. And for our young ones: please enjoy this week's children's bulletin.
Receiving of offerings is missing from our order of worship but continues to be important to sustain our church community. We hope if you are able, you will continue to give to the church online or with a check mailed to the church (500 Hope Street, Providence, RI 02906). Thank you!
We invite you to stay online after worship for virtual coffee hour :)

Another Call for Help with Yard Work
We would very much appreciate some help cleaning up our flower garden and play area (located near the church's side entrance on Hope Street) for the warm weather season. If you have an hour or so this week, please consider dropping by at any time to lend a hand with one of these family-friendly outdoor tasks:
Leaf/twig removal (please be careful in places where leaves have nestled at the base of perennials)
Removal of dead flower stalks (simply pinch, cut, or gently shake off the hollow grassy stalks and collect them)
Wipe down play equipment of accumulated dust and grime
Please bring your own tools/supplies. We have paper yard bags on the south side "porch" you can use for compostable yard waste. Full bags (not too full) can be left behind the church along the fence. If you need to get into the shed to store full bags out of heavy rain, are desperate for a rake, or have any questions, you can call or text Dan Blackford at (401) 808-2605. Thank you for any time you can give – it's a huge help!
