Cameron Happenings
May 2021       
The pruning in our lives
Always bears fruit.
Operation Declutter Continues! 
A big thank you to all who have pitched in! So far we have tackled the Community Room area and the office downstairs, which will be rented by the Conference’s District Office. And in addition, the Retrograss/Nights of Ni have done a big outdoor cleanup around our Sacred Space, so many thanks to Catherine for spearheading that effort! Your next opportunities for assistance are:
  • Declutter III: Monday, May 3 from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 noon. Focus will be the “Stage C Store room.”
  • Declutter IV: Saturday, May 8 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Continuation of downstairs project. Please click here to sign up on the Announcements page, or contact Mary, Many hands make light work!
Do you have any visions for Cameron into the future? Contact any member of the Cameron Today4Tomorrow team: Pastor Jackson, Pastor Denise, Rev. Jeremy, Mary Strizek, Jason Bell, Mike Hyman, Mary Jane McCormick, Catherine Teutsch. Thoughts/ideas about re-entry? Contact Mary Strizek,  Emily Ward, or Eric Robinson.

Cameron needs your help! With Zoom and social distancing guiding our lives, it is easy to forget that it takes a lot of work to keep Cameron going! We could use your help with the following:
  • create simple videos of our worship from the full Zoom recording
  • maintain our website by updating content
  • make small repairs or manage simple projects to keep the building running smoothly.
Send a note to techcomm@CameronChurch.org with your skills and interest, and we will make sure your note gets to the right committee!
 
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for AfterHours! We hope you can make some time to help with our monthly mission, preparing sack lunches to serve to the homeless in Civic Center Park on Saturday, May 15! If you have not yet participated in AfterHours, this is an enriching experience and an opportunity to spend some time with each other. Sign up here to donate food supplies and prepare sack lunches! Click here for more information.

Parking Lot Society to begin Saturday, May 15 at 5:00 p.m. Since we can’t get together officially in the church, we can certainly spend an hour or two chatting in the parking lot! Bring your favorite beverage, a snack, and a lawn chair to catch up outside in the open air. No shared food or drink. Masks are required.The Spirit and Soul Care Team is sponsoring this project.

Good Trouble at Cameron is our commitment to advocacy and action to ensure that every human being enjoys the basic human rights of equality, justice, equity, and dignity. If you would like to join us and participate in the direction and definition of our work, please contact Good Trouble at Cameron. For community and anti-racism resources, click here.

Fun and Games: Join us for some Friday fun! We meet the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month at 7 p.m. For more information contact Sue Young. The Zoom link is on the Cameron calendar. Our goal is to build community, laugh, have fun, and enjoy each other's company. Everyone is welcome!

The Spirit and Soul Care Team at Cameron continues to pray for each person who is part of the Cameron Community. We will be planning some social times in the weeks and months to come to offer a venue for sharing how re-entry into society is working for you. From recent news reports, we have learned that some folks (especially introverts) may be struggling with this. Any member of the Spirit and Soul Care Team is ready with a listening ear. Peace and Love, Pastor Denise, Mary Jane McCormick, Marti Davidson, and Kim Creadick. To connect or get information, click here.


FYI: Our teens between sixth and twelfth grades are always invited. The focus of FYI is to provide a time to connect and build community. Contact Pastor Denise for more information. May 9 and 23 at 2 p.m.

Summer Holiday Weekend Worship Schedule
So that the entire Cameron community (members, staff, and clergy) may enjoy the spiritual practices of renewal during a long weekend and the sacredness of
sabbath and renewal from time to time, we will
offer corporate worship on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. in lieu of Sunday mornings during long holiday weekends. Also, for your personal study, we invite you to read and reflect on Genesis 2:23 and Mark 2:2728, two ancient wisdom references regarding the gifts of sabbath. To help you plan for these special times, the summer holiday worship schedule is below: 
Memorial Day weekendThursday, May 27
Independence Day weekendThursday, July 1
Labor Day weekendThursday, September 2

What is a Cameron Trustee? This important committee is responsible for every aspect of our Sacred Space, from changing light bulbs to coordinating roof repairs. When we resume in-person worship we will have a lot of opportunities to support online worship! There is a LOT going on! If any of this sounds like you can lend a hand or have expertise, send a note to trustees@CameronChurch.org to learn more and join the team!
