  • 2 Samuel 5:1-5, 9-10

  • Psalm 48

  • Ezekiel 2:1-5

  • Psalm 123

DONATIONS NEEDED: The Member Care Committee mans a table at the Farmer’s Market twice during the season. To help attract attention and draw people to the table where the MCC members share information about the church, the group prepares a basket of items, which will be awarded via a drawing at the end of the day. No tickets are sold, but to get an entry into the drawing for a basket, the folks must visit the table. Anyway, this year, the MCC would greatly appreciate any Gift Card donations you can make. The gift cards draw more attention than other items, so they are hoping to draw more attention this year. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING A GIFT CARD TO THIS WORTHY EFFORT. If you have a business, consider a donation, or if you have an unused gift card that you can part with, even stop in one of our great businesses and purchase a gift card to donate.

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL: It is so exciting to have a Children’s Program beginning again. We are gathering with the children for a lesson and some crafts during the 10:00 AM service. Please sign up if you would like to volunteer to lead the children’s time on any Sunday. You are open to teaching whatever biblical story you enjoy and feel comfortable sharing with the children. There will be a sign-up sheet in Fellowship Hall. It’s a great experience.

 

FAMILY FUN DAY: This year, the community Family Fun Day is being held on July 5 & 6 at the CER location on 42nd Street.  As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, we have reserved a space for the event, which will take place from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM on both days. On Friday, it will be just the church, and on Saturday, the FUN Club will join us at the spot. We are looking for volunteers to plan the activities and run the booth. Please sign up if you are interested in being a part of this community outreach opportunity.

 

FELLOWSHIP HOUR: CLOSED UNTIL SEPTEMBER

 

MISSION GROUPS: It’s summer, and the mission groups are staying with us beginning this Saturday, June 29th, and the last group leaves on August 16th. Please welcome the groups and respect the spaces that will be reserved for their use. They will be sleeping in rooms 6, 8, and 10 and, if needed, the old nursery room. They will be assigned the small room attached to the kitchen for the storage of their food supplies. In addition, they will use the tall single-door refrigerator and the freezer in room 8.

 

FOOD PANTRY: The food pantry needs donations of reusable bags and cleaning products.

 

ADULT BIBLE STUDY: The Adult Bible study has completed its study of Acts and will be on hiatus for the summer. Classes will resume on the 1st Sunday after Labor Day, with a study of Romans. All are welcome to attend.

FAITH COMMUNITY NURSING: As many of you already know, our Community Faith Nurses have been doing blood pressure screenings on an intermittent basis in Fellowship Hall after 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services. We are happy to announce that we will be offering blood pressure screenings on the second Sunday of each month on a regular basis and will also continue intermittently after services when able! Elevated blood pressure is often without symptoms and is a major risk factor for the development of stroke and heart attack.

 

MEMBER CARE COMMITTEE: The Member Care Committee has decided to continue to meet through the summer. The meetings with normally be on the first Tuesday of the month at 10:30 AM.  All are welcome to attend.  If you, or anyone you know have needs for prescription pick-up, rides to Doctor visits, grocery pick-up, etc. please contact the church office or Beverly Faunce.

 

JULY BIRTHDAYS: Riley Gershman, Leah Gallo, Dottie Harlan, Tony DiSanto, Kyle Holt, Jill Tate, Teri Gragg, Chikita Wallace, Gay-Ann Settanni, J Edward Kline, Shawn McCloud, Susan Goglas, Barrie Jane Tracy, Daniel Gershman, Lindsay Tate, Christopher Nazha, Sheri Hansen.

 

UPDATES OR REQUESTS: Please remember to review the prayer concern list and drop off any updates in the office or leave a message on the office number. Also, if you need a note placed in the insert, please just let me know NLT Thursday morning for the upcoming week’s insert.
