IS IT GETTING COLD IN HERE…..?

….Or is it the Sub-Zero Ice Cream?! imageThe Second Saturday Social is here!! The Ice Cream joint just opened a new location in downtown Provo this week in a restored building (formerly the Windowbox Gallery). Let’s cool off with a one of their many tasty treats, enjoy some conversation, and check out their new digs too. Meet at the church at 7pm THIS SATURDAY!

National Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer was a wonderful event, this year combined with Orem’s Summerfest, held at the UVU Library Auditorium.  Keynote speaker was Dean Jackson, friend to PCCUCC, giving a thoughtful and inspriational message of acceptance of others, choosing to see and celebrate what we have in common with others around us, instead of getting hung up on our differences.

Members of The Provo Interfaith Choir following their performance at Orem Summerfest-National Day of Prayer

The Provo Interfaith Choir, led by Dave Lewis and including members of our congregation, performed four music selections including a rousing arrangement of Battle Hymn of the Republic, followed by the call to be a better person with Have I Done Any Good?.  The toe tapping I Will Follow Him had the choir and audience moving.  The program concluded with the inspirational Climb E’vry Mountain encourging us to follow our dreams.

Greenbacks for Greenery

North side of the Church post shrub removal with cleanup in progress.

We’ve determined it wasn’t some violent act of Mother Nature at work on the grounds north of of the Church, but she does needs our help to spruce things up. The old landscaping has come out, the beds are being cleaned and improved in preparation for new plantings of bushes, ornamental grasses, and perennials. This is where you come in…we need funds to replace the bushes, renovate the sprinkler system, and mulch. Plants can range from $10 to over $50 each. Dave Lewis is overseeing this project and is a smart shopper, sure to make the funds go far, but we need those greenbacks first (aka, $$$). Our goal is $1500 (so far we have $240) within the next three weeks so we can get it planted before it gets too hot!!! Please see Dave with your generous donation and note that the donation is for the landscaping. THANK YOU!!!
