For the week of July 10, we had 65 in attendance.


Next week we look forward to Vincent coordinating a DR Congo-themed service. 


Mark your calendars! Potluck is returning on Sunday, July 31 in conjunction with a double shower. Following a potluck on that Sunday, we will have a baby shower for Kelsey (Nitzsche) and Garrett Kurtzer, and a wedding shower for Emily Nitzsche and Aiden Sweeney. Please bring a main dish and a side. Cake and punch will be provided. After the meal we will serve cake and share our gifts with them. Both couples are registered at Target.


We have a sharing fund to assist our members as well as those more loosely connected w/ us who are struggling with financial hardship. Please speak with someone on the nurture commission: Steve, Becky, Christian, and/or Ron.


CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Studying the Bible, prayer, fellowship and accountability are important Christian practices that often happen in Sunday School for all ages. Pray for those who are organizing faith formation programs for the next school year and for those who will lead and teach.
