Need a Good Book to Read?  Great New Books Have Been Added in the Library!

Check out what's available in the church library by following the quick link at www.fpcdavenport.org to search the
shelves.  If you don't find something that interests you, make a recommendation to the Library Committee; and, a
reminder to check if you have any overdue books at home and return them in the library. Here are a few of the new
books:
Interrupting Silence:  God’s Command to Speak Out, by Walter Brueggemann.  The author urges people to speak
in situations of injustice using many Biblical examples where marginalized people speak out to break repression.  
Happiness Is a Choice You Make, by John Lelan. Stories compiled from interviews of people 85 and older from various
backgrounds enjoying life.
The Great Alone, by Kristin Hannah.  A story of Alaska, 1974 – A POW comes home from
Vietnam  and moves his family to Alaska with dangerous results.

Food Pantry Collections for The Center

Every Sunday is food pantry Sunday!  If you can, please purchase one or more items for the
food pantry each week when you shop.  Any non-perishable food, toiletry or monetary donation
will be accepted.  Each month we will have a suggested item that The Center always needs but
does not receive often. You can drop off your contribution to the church in the back of the
sanctuary or in fellowship hall.  Thank you so much for helping our community feed and care for
their families.  If you have any questions,  please contact Julie Grothusen (563-505-4964 or
mjgrothusen@hotmail.com).

Take Me With You this Summer!

Share your “splash” experiences or stories to the church’s social media sites.  Cut out the splash
graphic below and post away. Maybe you’re volunteering at VBC, or traveling to places near and
far? Or, maybe you’re experiencing a refreshing renewal of spirit as you travel with the Music
Ministry Outreach Tour?  Whatever inspires you and wherever you go, stay connected in prayer
and service. We can’t wait to see all of the ways that
#FPCSplash is shared!

So please: jump on in. The water is fine. And God is with you every single water drop of the way!

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.     - Isaiah 43:2

Musikgarten Summer Splash - Sundays, 9:15 am

Just add water! I can’t imagine what our room would look like if we added water to all the
stomping, running, hopping and spinning that happens during a typical Musikgarten class! Even
though regular Sunday School classes have ended until fall, we love Musikgarten so much that
we keep coming back for more. We’ve been building a church family week by week that we all
love and look forward to seeing on Sunday mornings. Our children are learning language,
moving and dancing, playing instruments and singing together in a God-centered, musical
community at FPC. Feel free to come and join us. The only rule is that everyone joins in!
Musikgarten is for infants through three years old, but if you have older children, bring them with
you during the summer. If you have friends and family visiting during the summer, feel free to
bring them too, even if you’re not a regular Musikgarten attendee (think Grandparents who want
to experience MG with their grandkids). We’ll meet for Summer Musikgarten classes in Room
307, 9:15-9:50 am, on June 17 and 24 July 8, 15, 22, 29 and August 5 and 12. If would like more
information, please contact
Kathy Middleton. Goggles and swim fins are optional.
