VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is this week, July 10-12, from 6-8:30 pm at FMC, "Digging for Treasure." See you all there!!!


OUT OF TOWN – Pastor Dave and Laura and be out of town the next few weeks. They are travelling to see Karen, Adam, and baby Reuben in South Africa. Please contact the elders--Wade, Wanda, and Dallas--with pastoral care concerns.


SIGN UP – Curious about the Nuture Commission? Have an idea for the Outreach Committee?  What exactly is discussed at Leadership Board?  Please be praying about ways you might plug in at FMC, see the sign up sheets in the fellowship hall, and sign up. Talk to Dave Nitzsche or another member of gifts discernment if you are interested.


DIRECTORY - Our existing FMC Directory has been posted on a white table in the fellowship hall.  Please stop by and review it for needed updates to your address, telephone numbers, and email addresses.


CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Pray for the camp staff and campers at Crooked Creek Christian Camp near Washington, Iowa. This week is the last week of youth camps, with 7th and 8th graders arriving this afternoon.


JOIN US - Some FMC people gather Tuesdays for Jazz in June. The music starts at 7:00 but people gather 6:30ish for a picnic. Meet in front of Architecture Hall on the sculpture garden grass (If 11 th St. just kept going north past Q St. and through campus it would run right over our group).


Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
