It’s HERE!  Vacation Bible School 2013 begins tomorrow evening.  The classrooms are all ready, the invitations continue to be extended, a large number of volunteers have been working many hours, the Lord’s help has been requested…and we’re almost ready to start.  We hope you and your family will be here every evening this week.

The costumes can be picked up from the rack outside Everett’s office.

Cookies are needed each evening for the adult class.  Please sign the list on the bulletin board if you can help.

Due to VBS, there will be no regular classes this coming Wednesday. The Adult series “Hard Sayings and Neglected Commands of Jesus” will resume on Aug. 14 with Dennie Green leading the discussion.


Camp Concern 2013 is now history.  Parents, don’t forget…if your child won any awards at any church camp this summer, we want to recognize them in the August 18th bulletin.  Please write their name, the camp’s name and week in which they participated and award(s) they won and give it to Everett or Joyce by next Sunday, Aug. 11.

PICTORIAL DIRECTORY                    

August 25th is the deadline for having your family’s photograph taken for our new Pictorial Church Directory.  If you haven’t had your picture yet, please get with Brad Schrum, Joyce Slatt or Kay Sowinski following today’s service.  Please help us  make the new directory as complete as possible to help us become better acquainted with each other as well as help future members become more quickly acquainted with us.


Did you know that you can be a Christian involved in a church without being a member of any denomination?  You can be just a Christian.  In next week’s sermon, “Just A Christian,” Phil Sanders will discuss how this is possible.  The program is on  every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
