Summer greetings one and all,
I am very excited for so many things right now. I am excited for our journey
ahead as God’s family called the Los Altos United Methodist Church. Recently,
our Church Council approved Phase I of the proposed building campaign and
the commencement of a capital campaign to fund this work. The council made an
informed decision after reviewing the feasibility study performed by Cargill &
Associates. The results of the study determined that the church is financially
ready and prepared to begin this work, together.
Also, I am excited to share how awesome our Groundlings Summer Camp has
been and continues to be. We are offering a wonderful camp program with
children and families here every day this summer! We are singing, playing,
learning, resting, eating, dreaming and playing some more — all together as one
big family and a few smaller families, too. Each of the Groundlings camp families
are led by a college intern and several youth counselors. Our lesson and craft
sessions are taught by adults. Plus, we have had lots of snack donations from
the entire church family. It’s truly been a whole church effort, and I am excited to
be a part of it all.
I am excited about our new, upcoming Chair Yoga classes this fall, and the fun
“Beat the Heat” gatherings this summer. I am excited to see our Los Altos UMC
library holdings on display Sundays this summer. I hope that you have noticed
them, too. If not, take a look at the cart near the Lounge, and maybe find a great
And … I am excited that starting this coming week, I am taking some vacation
time with my family!
Our church has much to offer our gathered community, and the many that we
have yet to welcome. What are you excited about at Los Altos UMC, and with
whom could you share your excitement?
Your sister in Christ,
