Mid-July Connection

Good afternoon everyone,  no need to tell you how hot these past days have been.  Look forward to church in a lovely air conditioned space on Sunday morning!  Please keep these things in mind as you plan your time over the next days.

Sunday worship begins at 10:00.  Great singing, uplifting words from Pastor Kevin,  a time for praises and concerns to be shared and special music from Rachel and Steve round out our time together.  Meg has Kids Connection in full swing for the younger ones.  Coffee and time to chat follows in the fellowship hall.  Hope to see you!

For those of you who have been at the Islam Study in Monday evenings, you can attest to what a really interesting and informative time this is.  It is not too late to join this study – 7:00 in the Council Room next to the office.  We’ll save a seat for you 🙂

Thank you to everyone who made a special financial gift to help with medical care for the Compassion child who was severely burned.  We have received about $450.  Elsa will be sending those funds out to Compassion in the next week or so.  If you would still like to contribute, please make your check out to UCN and make a note for Compassion burn victim.

Don’t forget to stop by the Westwood Library during the month of July.  Cindy Rudolph is displaying her artwork there for the month.

The BLOOM Summer Tea tour stopped here last Saturday.  We were blessed to have about 60 women attend!  It was a wonderful morning of fellowship, food and encouraging words as we heard about the great work that BLOOM is doing to help young girls at risk.  We were able to offer a great deal of financial support as well as donations of needed supplies for the BLOOM home.  Thank you to everyone who participated in any way to make this such a successful event!  A special thank you to Cindy Rudolph who as always keeps the WISH ministry  on target and focused when we are planning these activities!

Are you interested in becoming a member of our church here?  New members will be welcomed on August 13th.  Please speak to Pastor Kevin if you are interested in taking this next faith step…

Thank you for being a part of our church community.  We are truly thankful for each one of you..  As you relax and enjoy some well deserved vacation time during the summer months, please remember that the financial needs of the church continue.  Your financial faithfulness is appreciated.
