Let’s be praying for the effectiveness of this year’s VBS — Aug. 6-10 (6:30-8:30 p.m.).  Our theme will be “Daniel, A Man of Focus.”   If you haven’t done so yet, start telling others about our VBS and invite them to come with you.  There will be classes for all ages from Age 3-Adult.

If you would like to help purchase the food items for VBS, please give the money to Kathy Green.  We need a clay outdoor fire pot for VBS. If you have one you are willing to loan, contact Kathy Green.


    Today is the beginning of the camping season at Camp Concern as Ages 15-18 leave for Senior Week.

Parents, if your child wins any awards at any church camp, please write their name, camp name and award on a card and give it to Joyce by August 8 so they can be published in a future bulletin.
