Hello everyone, What a beautiful week! Hope you are finding some time to get outside and admire some of God’s beautiful creation we are blessed with! Here are some of the things to keep in mind as you plan your time
Sunday worship begins at 10:00. Please come to church if you are home! Great music, uplifting message from Pastor Kevin, Kids Connection, a time for you to share your prayers and praises, time to connect with your friends and coffee to follow. Hope to see you!
Council members are reminded of the Council meeting on Monday evening at 7:00. Please check your email for a note from Shannon.
Regarding desperately needed back packs for the Blessing Bag ministry...check out yard sales! As the school year ends, many backpacks are discarded to be replaced in the fall. One woman stopped by church last week with 4 backpacks she found at yard sales. Additionally, when she told the homeowner what they were being used for, she told her just to take them. And that homeowner happens to do a lot of business travel and then gave a bag of small size toiletries that she had accumulated from her travels! Great suggestion – check those yard sales! And there is an ongoing need for chapsticks, hair brushes, trial size toiletries, wash cloths and blank note cards.
If you were here last Sunday you were treated to THREE wonderful selections from our choir. What a blessing! Thank you to all of the choir members, Chris and Steve for a great year! Our choir is a huge part of Sunday worship and we so appreciate all of the hard work that is done each week to provide our service with exciting faith-filled music!
Ladies! You are invited to a Summer Tea on Saturday, July 15th from 10-Noon here in Veno Hall to benefit BLOOM – a Place for Girls in Crisis. BLOOM is a branch of Teen Challenge Ministries that we have had a connection to for many years. Tickets are $10 and are available from Barbara Sweeny or any WISH member. Tickets can also be purchased at the door. Please consider supporting this excellent cause – bring a friend, sister, co-worker, daughter…it’s going to be a great and inspiring morning! We have details posted on all the bulletin boards at church and Meg has done a great job of sharing this on our FB page and web site. Check it out!
After another GREAT year of serving meals each Wednesday evening, our Open Doorvolunteers will be taking the months of July and August off for a well-deserved break. We will end the season with a cookout next Wednesday evening at 5:30 followed by a “debriefing” to review the past year and look ahead to the fall start-up. Everyone is welcome to the cookout. Give some thought to joining the great team of volunteers that we have – your help is needed!
Would you like to become a member of the United Church? Pastor Kevin is thinking of inducting new members on Sunday, August 13th. Please speak to Pastor Kevin if you are interested or have any questions.
Serving on Sunday:
Greeters/Ushers: Dottie Cotter, Barbara Sweeny
Kids: Meg, Sharon, Melanie
Please consider stopping in early to set up, bringing a goodie to share, or staying after to help clean-up! Sign ups for summer coffee time volunteers will be available on the snack table this coming Sunday for all to find a way to help!
