Weekly Update: fresh communication, summer bbqs & moms' group

As I talk with many of you, I feel an increasing desire for more open lines of communication in our church community. My hope is that everyone would have the chance to invest more in the life of the church and have a better grasp on the plans, changes, and opportunities at The Painted Door.

The leaders at our church are discussing and working on this regularly, and I want to invite you all to join us in that effort! We are a people that have long valued authenticity and organic relationships. Little by little, we're learning to love people by implementing effective systems as well. In fact, we now have many tools we're using to try to keep everyone in the loop. These include:

        · this weekly note texted or emailed directly to your pocket, along with other texted/emailed items depending on which groups you participate in (and you can text us back!)

        ·  resources at tpd.church, including the volunteer schedule and directory at tpd.church/volunteerschedule

        ·  mid-service announcements

        ·  after church meetings (members, teachers, parents, volunteer groups, diaconate)

        ·  Facebook and Instagram

Now, this is where you all come in. Many of us are connected with others on a personal level but don't pay much attention to details about what's going on more broadly throughout the church. We need to grow in embracing the tools mentioned above. And we can help each other stay informed through word-of-mouth communication. We can all relay helpful tidbits to our small groups, friends, fellow volunteers, fellow parents, visitors, etc. In this way, every person can have a chance to hear about needs and opportunities in our church community and beyond. And maybe they'll hear it from you!

THIS COMING SUNDAY

DIVIDING WALLS: GENTRIFICATION
Matthew 8:1-23
Pastor Wes Oaks

What neighborhood do you live in? What does it say about you? What do you say about it? Given our time and place we find ourselves standing in line with many who have gone before us, with still more behind to follow.  And while our heritage, incomes, and experiences shape us, they do not divide us.  Our preferences and sensibilities make us neither superior nor inferior to anyone. Jesus was a Jew in the lineage of the great king David, but he walked around without a home.  Amidst his rich Jewishness he willingly touched the unclean, engaged the Romans, and visited the Samaritans.  These walls were not barriers to Jesus. He was a homeless man who invested across social, cultural, and economic lines; he was the good neighbor.
