A place for wonder. A place for fun.
Welcome, welcome everyone!
Chalice Weekly Family Update
May 6, 2021
May’s theme is… Story
Sunday Morning Service at 10am
Stories from Lives Well Mom’ed
with Matt Chapa and Friends
We all have a mother – but there our similarities end. Our experience of motherhood is dynamic and can run the gamut from warm to reactive. Join us for a reflective service on this observation of Mother’s Day with readings, music, and the sharing of Chalice Mothers’ stories of motherhood.

Tie Dye Party!
Saturday, May 15, noon to 4pm, @ Chalice in front of Fellowship Hall
Registration now open! Only a few spots left!
We will only have space for 10 participants each hour. Please register each person in your group to ensure we have enough supplies for all and proper spacing for a safe event.
All participants must wear a mask throughout your stay at the event.
Please limit your items for dying to two per person (t-shirts, skirts, pants, tote bags, pillowcases, or whatever you like!). For the best outcome, items should be 100% natural fiber (cotton, rayon, bamboo, hemp, linen, etc.). Dye, gloves, aprons, and plastic bags will be provided.

NEWS ALERT – NEWS ALERT – NEWS ALERT
Deadline for video entries extended to Friday, May 14!
Have you heard of this amazing opportunity given to Chalice!?
Our congregation has been asked to create the video and music for the opening of General Assembly 2021! WOW!!! Our awesome choir and musicians will be performing a beautiful rendition of “Draw the Circle Wide”, while the rest of our congregation creates videos dancing, playing, twirling and showing how we draw the circle wide.
Get creative! Stand in a circle holding hands with your family. Draw circles in the dirt on a hiking trail or at the beach. Build circles out of Legos or paint circles on a canvas or spin in circles with your loved ones or… However you can show Chalice is drawing the circle wide. We want to see people of all backgrounds, all shapes, all sizes, all ages, all abilities, all races, all genders, everybody!
To receive the music to sing along with, contact Michael Guinn at Michael.Guinn@mac.com. He will also be the one you send your videos in to. All videos must be received by Michael no later than Friday, May 14.
