Ice Cream Social Today!

Today is the big day.
And what a gorgeous late summer day it is!
Please join us this afternoon for the annual Ice Cream Social.

Real homemade ice cream is served with your choice of dozens and dozens of pies.  We even have a homemade Gluten-Free apple pie.  Free will donations are accepted.  And seconds are allowed.  :)
We have lots of canopies set up on the lawn so it is a lovely time to sit in  the shade and visit with your neighbors and friends.

Inside the church the ladies are hosting a craft and bake sale.  
The proceeds support missions such as buying fabric to make hundreds of blankets for Project Linus.  These blankets are distributed to law enforcement stations, fire departments, and hospitals as a first response to help children experiencing loss and trauma. 
The ladies also monitor a raffle with great prizes and a silent auction.

Outdoors, under the canopies, local musicians from Bluebird will be performing.  
Stop by the children's activity canopy to have your face painted, pick up a helium balloon, or dress up as a pirate.  All children's activities are absolutely free!

We hope to see you this afternoon!

Church Grounds Project Scheduled

(photo is a representation of how rock and fence panels will eventually be used to screen the propane tank)
The O.R. Council has approved of a church lawn improvement project suggested by congregational members and a "work day" has been scheduled for 
Saturday, July 23rd
9am to ?

Stage 1:
The ground directly around the propane tank and the short narrow band of trees directly between the tank and the driveway will be slightly leveled, covered in landscape fabric and topped with crush rock.  
This will make mowing around these areas much easier and it will hopefully present a much tidier appearance.

The landscaping materials have been donated and Don and Debbie Wille are leading the project.    
Everyone is invited to join in the labor as many hands make light work.  
 Debbie plans to make a hotdish or sandwiches so there will be sustenance provided.  
Bring gloves.  
Feel free to call Don or Debbie at 243-2368 if you want more information about tools that will be provided and tools that might still be needed.

Sunday School Lesson Theme

On July 10, the Sunday School class will begin a study of the books of the Bible.

Emphasis will be placed on memorizing the order of the books and the major themes and people featured in each book.  

The children will be building a reference book that will stay in class until it is finished.  They will also be bringing home craft stick lists of the books to practice memorization.  Each week a one-page fact sheet about the "book-of-the-week" will be sent home with your child.  Please review this sheet as a family so your child can learn as much as possible about the Bible that our faith is based on.

Thank you,
Sabrina Erickson
