First Connections – July 2, 2015

Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the Lord is to be praised! Psalm 113:2-3


Dear Church Family,

If you will remember - for the last few years we have been among the churches that have helped Mission Shawnee with their summer program to feed children. They are doing this again this year and they need our help. Volunteers have been scarce this year for some reason.

You may volunteer in groups, such as Sunday School classes, or as individuals. You may volunteer to make sandwiches (8-11 am) or to hand out sandwiches (11 am-12:30 pm) (or both!) 

The dates are from July 6 to July 24. If you can help, please call Sarah Miller at 254-537-2187.

Don’t Forget
