Our LDS Neighbors

Red Door Church will be hosting a conference this summer.

On July 25th we will welcome Matt Schmidt, Ratio Christi’s National Director of Chapter Formation, who will be giving several talks on the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

We will be looking at topics like “Why are they such an important group?”, “Are they Christians,” “How do their beliefs differ from our own?”, and “How do we respond to them at our door?”

The first session will begin at 9 a.m. and the conference will conclude around 3 p.m.  Lunch will be provided.

If you pre-register, admission is free, or $5 at the door.  You can register online here.

South Royalton Yard Sale

The VLS Campus Greening Committee is putting on a yard sale this coming Saturday, the 9th out on the South Royalton town green.

Their flyer says: “Bring anything you want to sell. You keep any money you make.
Bring tarps or tables to set up your things, and enjoy some terrific sales.”

The sale will go from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

(If it’s raining on the 9th it will be at the same time and place on the 10th)

Bible Reading Subs

Since Pastor Josh and his wife Megan will be out of the area for a couple of weeks, we will need a couple of volunteers to fill their slots for our weekly bible reading program at church.

Pastor Josh reads for the Wednesday slot and Megan for the Friday slot.  The dates where we need coverage are as follows:

Wednesday the 15th and Friday the 17th

Wednesday the 22nd and Friday the 24th

The readings are at 12:30 each weekday and last roughly 20 minutes.  The reading schedule is located under the large Bible on the lectern in the sanctuary.  There are four daily readings.

If you feel led to help with this, please contact Lynn Irish.

Pastor Josh On Vacation in NC

The Pastor and his family will be on vacation down in NC for a couple of weeks beginning this Sunday, the 12th of April.  Pastor Josh will facilitate the service on the 12th and then depart that evening with his family.  Russ Rohloff will be leading the services on the 19th and 26th of April.  If you have any urgent needs please contact one of the elders: Scott Puopolo, Carol Miller, or Russ Rohloff.
