HHas it been HOT enough for you this SUMMER?  Hope you are enjoying the outdoors while managing to navigate the full blast of the summer heat! Thank you to everyone who shared in the effort of making our Annual Church Picnic a huge success! I am excited about the continuing summer opportunities as we flip the calendar to August. There is still time to sign up as a Lake County Fair parking volunteer if you have some time to spare!  The Fair runs from August 5 thru14. Sign-up sheets with dates and time shifts are on the bulletin board. 

We will also have a special music service on August 14th with “Just for Fun Strummers” ukulele group with us that day and a full fellowship meal to follow!  Invite your friends! 


All are welcome! Let’s pack our pews!

Summer is a busy time for so many! Take a look around the church each Sunday and reach out to those that are missing.  Pray for one another. A kind and caring word might be the encouragement that they need. Let’s not forget our shut-in folks either.  A phone call or a kind note goes a long way towards blessing a heart. 

 Further opportunities available as we prepare for our financial stewardship program in September.  Even now ask God to prepare your heart to give toward our church’s need for your time, talent and financial resources.  2 Corinthians 9:6-7 tells us that God wants to bless our giving motives and He loves a cheerful giver!  Let’s do our part to honor the Lord in our gifts back to Him!  Our motto this year will be “This Little Light of Mine”.  We are working on a wonderful pictorial display for our theme.

Keep our kids and teachers in prayer as everyone goes BACK TO SCHJOOL this month.  It is always good to pray!     

 God Bless!
