THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 16                                                            

Father's Day Sunday



In The Presence of Spirit

You Hear the Voice of Heritage and Hope

The impact of the heritage that has comes to us is profound and does much to lead us into the future.  The Spirit is the life-blood of the church, it invigorates and enables all we do as followers of the Christ.  We hear the voice of the Spirit in countless ways!

 Our worship will feature the music of Daniel Serville.  Daniel and Anthony will be playing special selections in honor of Father’s Day and Daniel has two selections he is dedicating to his father and mother in honor of their support throughout his student years.  He will be leaving soon for college in California.

A video slide show by Joni Cronin will be presented in tribute to the fathers of the church.

Debbie Walter will serve as Lay Leader. Team Six will assist in worship.  Rev. Larry will share a story with the children.  The Women’s Fellowship will serve a festive Father’s Day luncheon!

         Church Wish List:  In addition to our graciously received weekly and on-going support of our church we have the opportunity to assist with a few special needs. We have established a Wish List of primarily non-budgeted items that are not an immediate need, but which would enhance the life of the church.  If anyone sees an item he/she is interested in purchasing, please talk to a Council or Financial Oversight Team member because a certain amount of research has been done and we have a good idea what we need.  This is our first attempt at this, so the process will need to be adjusted as time goes on.  Thank you for any assistance you are willing to offer.

·         New lawn tractor (defray $5,000 cost)  Update: We thank Jan and Doug Rightmer for their $1,000 contribution, and the Men’s Group for its $3,000 contribution!  $1,000 left to go.
