Food trucks will be on the scene, as well as a Dunking Tank. Be thinking who'd you like to Dunk for Mission! If you can help for any period of time,7:30am-3pm, contact the church office or cathy@romefirst.org

Living Proof Recovery

June's communion offering goes to Living Proof Recovery. Living Proof Recovery has a mission to help those struggling with addiction to achieve their long term recovery goals via advocacy, training, tutoring, employment placement, peer support and spiritual guidance. The opposite of addiction isn't sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection. Living Proof Recovery is a Recovery Community Organization. No one is alone in the work towards recovery and abundant life. Doors are always open, coffee is always hot. This month's special needs: bottled water and potting soil for the greenhouse. If you would like to make donate supplies, just bring them by the church office. We'll get it there.

Meals and More continues to be served from the Wilder Center every Tuesday,
3-5:30 PM.  Please consider coming by and lending your friendly face and helping hands to support those in need in our neighborhood.  Pour a cup of cold water on a hot day, pack a bag, make a sandwich, all are welcome.
