Muslim-Lutheran Service Project to benefit Primary Children’s Hospital

Beverly Jbailat, our Muslim friend who led the Lutheran-Muslim dialogs during Lent last year, has invited us to join our Muslim friends in a service project during Ramadan. Let’s get together to make fleece blankets, craft kits, and other items for the kids at Primary Children’s Hospital. We are planning two gatherings:

  • ​Saturday, June 3 from 11am to 1pm at the Khadeejah Mosque, 1019 Parkway Blvd, West Valley City.
  •  Sunday, June 10 from 12pm to 2pm at Mt. Tabor.

We will provide fleece to tie for blankets, supplies to assemble into craft kits, and possibly other items as well. There will be something for all ages and “crafty” skill levels, and everyone is welcome at both events! In addition, Primary Children’s website has a number of other items that you can bring to work on or create on your own and drop off with us. Check out their website: https://intermountainhealthcare.org/locations/primary-childrens-hospital/giving-volunteering/intermountain-foundation/service-projects-donations/items-to-make/ (or Google “Primary Children’s Hospital items to make”). See Sarah Lange for more information.

Tabor hike, Sunday, June 3 to Dog Lake up Big Cottonwood Canyon.  Everyone is invited!  Come to the service at Tabor prepared to hike.  We'll meet after worship (and requisite coffee) then carpoll up Big Cottonwood Canyon to the Mill D trail head~9.5 miles. The hike is 4 miles round trip and of moderate difficulty.  Wear good hiking shoes and bring water, lunch or snacks as desired, hat and sunscreen.  Unfortunately despite the name, no dogs are allowed on this trail as it is in the watershed of Big Cottonwood Canyon.  Chris Jensen will be leading the hike, and invites you to read Matthew 15:27 to prepare! (look up the verse and we'll talk about it at the lake). 

Pride Parade marchers needed.  Mount Tabor has participated in the annual SLC Pride Parade for the past 8 years.  This year's parade is Sunday June 3, and we need volunteers to carry our banner!  If you can volunteer your time to be in this fun and fantastic celebration of God's diversity and love, please contact Leslie Carey or Pr. David.

The Endowment and Memorials Committee will be meeting after worship next Sunday, 10 June, to solicit requests for charities to support with the income from the endowment. You can either e-mail your request to Dave Warren (djw7223@xmission.com), drop a copy of your request in his mailbox outside the church office, or come to the meeting.

Crossroads Food Barrel: You are invited to bring non-perishable food donations to the barrel in the narthex for the local food pantry.  They are in need of canned tomato products.  All donations are appreciated.  Food is delivered weekly to Crossroads on 400 East in SLC.

Visit our spiritual direction room.  Come up the east stairs, and it's the fourth door on the left(Room #10). Stay as long as you like for prayer, meditation, or just a quiet moment for yourself.  Please put all books back in the shelf before you leave.  You will find things to take home with you as well. Many thanks to Pr. DanaLee Simon for making this available to us all!
