Dear Members and Friends,
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
We have a vision of becoming a community-centered people of faith. On our journey of faith, we will encourage each other’s growth and explore what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ. As we live out our faith we will be willing to accept our call to do the mission without prejudice, in the world, God entrusts to us.
Today’s altar flowers were donated by Margaret Ann Fenton on behalf of the congregation in celebration of Brenda Rupp’s 27-year service with this church. Each week, the Member Care Committee purchases a floral bouquet from Bella Rosas Florist for $30. If you would like to remember a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion OR provide flowers in memory of a loved one, please contact the church office to sign up for a particular date. After worship on that Sunday, you can either pick up the flowers or designate where to have them delivered (on the Island please!)
TODAY WE CELEBRATE:
The Baptism of Hartley Elise Dilks, daughter of Amanda Conover and Eric Dilks AND Lilliana Sewell and Hazel Rae Bennett, daughters of Nicole Conover Bennett and Edwin Bennett.
