Week of July 14th, 2019 


C.O.O.L. Picnic Sign Up Sheets are now posted on the church office window. A lot of help is needed to make this event a success. There are many areas for people willing to lend some time and give back to God for all He has given us. Servers are needed for the food line, inflatables need manned, the prayer tent needs people willing to offer prayer and there are many more duties that need volunteers. This is a 3 day process with preparation starting Friday, August 2nd, at 7:00 am. Everything needed for the event is at the church and needs taken to the park. Many things need set up and assembled for the event on Saturday, August 3rd. Help is needed ALL DAY AND EVENING on Saturday. On Sunday, August 4th, we will finish disassembling everything. Please pray about where and what you can do to help.


Christmas in July – There is a Christmas Tree in the Narthex during the month of July. Take a star ornament and purchase a gift card in that amount to help with back to school clothing and items for children in our congregation. There are also star ornaments that are labeled for our preschool to help them purchase supplies for the new school year. Please bring your gift card with the star to the church office by the end of July.
