FIVE ways that you can be involved!

1) Attend the weekend sessions with Jerry Root, Jeff Johnson, and Stephen Newby. 

Throughout the weekend of July 27-29, there will be several different events happening at the church. Jerry Root will be speaking on the Past, Present, and Future of Jubilee in Christ. Jeff Johnson and Stephen Newby will both have special musical presentations as well. Check out the schedule at orcaschurch.org/jubilee.

2) Submit something to the Historical Display.

Jenny Nichols and Pam DuPas are working to create a historical display highlighting the history of the church. If you have photos are any other items that you think might be of interest, please bring them to the church office. When you drop them off, please make sure that your name is included on the item. Everything you share will be returned later this summer. For more information, you can contact Jenny Nichols at cjnichols@orcasonline.com. 

3) Perform at the Jubilee Concert.

On Saturday night, July 28th, the church will host a Jubilee concert. We'll hear from Jeff Johnson, Stephen Newby, Tim Meaney, Lisa Carter, and the Gospel Choir. If you'd like to be involved, too, please let me know. But please do let me know in advance because we'll want to have the schedule figured out beforehand. You can simply respond to this email.

4) Sing with the Gospel Choir.

The Gospel Choir, under the direction of Stephen Newby, will be rehearsing on Saturday afternoon, July 28, at 1:00 pm. Please RSVP with the church office so we know how many singers to plan for.

5) Bring something to the Potluck Picnic.

Connect with our church's culinary history! We encourage everyone to make a dish out of one of our church's cookbooks. If you don't already have a cookbook you can purchase one from our women's ministry at the church. You can also check out these digital copies online. Finally, please let Ryan Carpenter (ryan@orcaschurch.org) know what you're going to be bringing. It would be great if you included a cookbook page number reference as well.
