“In your unfailing love, O God, answer my prayer with your sure salvation.” Psalm 69:13b

Family Promise Coming Soon!  Family Promise will be here starting this Sunday, July 27.  Don’t miss this opportunity to serve and to receive a blessing! A sign up sheet is posted on the window outside the church office and there are still several openings. (As of Friday afternoon, we still need meal, evening hosts and overnight hosts for Sunday, and overnight hosts also for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.)

Fern Raley

As you probably already know, our dear friend Fern is leaving us to move into her daughter’s home in Tennessee. We will miss you Fern! As she moves, she is not able to take everything with her. There are things which will be auctioned off on-line, including a baby grand piano. Caring Transitions is handling the estate. If you are interested you may go to the web address:
