This Sunday is Part 3 of our summer series on the Book of Revelation.
In This Bulletin:
Seventh Sunday After Pentecost
Scripture: Revelation 5:1-13
This summer we are working our way through the book of Revelation. This last book in the Bible raises all kinds of questions about its meaning and what it might have to say to us now. "Why Church?" was the question we explored the first Sunday of the series. "Why Worship?" was last Sunday's question. "Why Sacrifice?" is this Sunday's question. I hope you can attend worship in person (at Katonah UMC) or on Zoom at 10:30.
Upcoming & Ongoing Events
•Prayer Circle is every Wednesday from 12-1. On July 27 and August 3, prayer circle will be held on Zoom only.

Giving & Service
Hygiene Kits for UMCOR: Monetary Donations Needed!
Thanks to everyone who helped assemble 100 hygiene kits for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief)! And a special thank you to Kaylie Grieger and Michelle Dillmann for procuring the items for the kits! Donations toward the cost of the kits are needed, and may be made payable to either Katonah UMC or Purdys UMC.
Table of Grace
The mission of Table of Grace is to offer nourishment to anyone who is hungry physically or spiritually, or both. If you can help any Saturday to prepare and/or distribute bag lunches (using supplies that are provided by the Hudson Valley Food Bank, or using your own supplies), contact Bonnie Hyatt at email@example.com. We are now serving bag lunches on the sidewalk outside the First UMC of Brewster again until the winter months.
