Thirst Day is June 27 at 8:30 p.m.
“Searching for Sunday,” by Rachel Held Evans
People are still mourning the death of Rachel Held Evans, who passed away in April at age 37 leaving behind a husband, a young child, and many readers who’ve found renewed faith in faith communities because of her writing.

Like millions of her peers, Held Evans didn't want to go to church anymore. The hypocrisy, the politics, the building budgets, the scandals -- church culture seemed far removed from Jesus. Yet, despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back. And so she set out on a journey to understand Church and to find her place in it.

Centered on seven sacraments, we’ll go through a liturgical year with her stories about baptism, communion, confirmation, confession, marriage, vocation, and death that are funny, heartbreaking, and sharply honest.

Eight copies of the book have been ordered and will be available to check out in the church office.

June is a very busy month, so once again, Thirst Day will move to the FOURTH Thursday of the month, June 27 and an hour later to accommodate the VBS program in the park. Just walk on over to the parsonage after it’s done! We’ll begin about 8:30 p.m.
