BLAST – Boldly Learn and SERVE Together!   
2020-2021 – Make a Difference in the World!

April 9, 2021


 Dear Families,

SPRING is in the air and it certainly feels great! Hope you are all having some time to enjoy the outdoors.
As some of our mission projects have been on hold this past year, we decided to start a mission project right here in the church's backyard!!! 

We will start a community-raised vegetable garden as our BLAST Mission !! 
This is an exciting project as it intends to bring children and adults together to work for a common good - grow veggies and share the harvest with those who need it and could use some fresh food. 
Hope to get it started soon. We will have the amazing help of the Trustees committee and are looking forward to your family joining us. More info soon.

ONLINE WORSHIP
Keep checking out our BLAST Adventures! 

It is available on YouTube (just click on Chelsea First United Methodist Church - BLAST Adventures) every Sunday at 8:00 am so you can watch whenever convenient.

Thank you to all the children and families that participated in the Pageant! 

We did distribute the book "Twas The Morning Of Easter" by author Glenys Nellist,  to the families that came to our in-person outdoors Easter Worship. If your family wasn't able to attend but would like a copy of the book, I would be pleased to deliver it to you. Please let me know.

Event 
 There is an upcoming outdoor movie event hosted by SRSLY that your family is invited to. 
See link to the event here:

There is a need for a couple of adult or youth volunteers to help at the beginning and end of the evening with parking cars. Volunteers get free admission and VIP parking. If interested please email Debbie Hubbard  dm_hubbard@yahoo.com


INVITATION
I would like to invite you to join me in a parents group for us to share ideas, talk about issues affecting us all right now, discuss ways we can raise children with justice, mercy, and kindness. I would love to hear from you and have us connect as parents. I am a true believer that we learn best from each other.

The group will use as a guide, the book Parenting Forward by Cindy Wang Brandt, which models a way of following Jesus as parents that have an outward focus, putting priority on loving others, avoiding judgment, and helping those in need.
We will meet through Zoom. 
If interested, please let me know ASAP by sending me an email. I will provide the book to all participating.
Starting at the end of April.
