We will be having one service at 9:00 am, all July and August, plus the first Sunday in September (the 3rd).
We are grateful to the deacons for their coffee hours following each service in July and August. They will be held in the Fellowship Hall.
On Sunday, July 23rd we will be having Christmas in July. We will be receiving "extra-mile" gifts to the Food Pantry, as an expression of year-round generosity. There will be no Dollar Sunday in July, as a result.
The PW sponsored Church Fun Day at the Barry’s home on Cranberry Lake will be Saturday, September 9th, noon to four or so. See the newsletter tab for more information.
