THE OUTREACH COMMISSION will meet at 11:30 a.m. today. Any and all are welcome to come and share ideas you may have.
THE YOUTH GROUP leaves tomorrow for Harper’s Ferry. They will go horseback riding and take a few days in our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. They will also visit the battlefields of Gettysburg and Antietam. The theme of the trip is God and Government. There will be reflections on Scripture about how God relates to war and government. Most of all it will be a fun trip, having fellowship with friends. Please keep the youth group in your prayers as they have an adventure.
FATHER LAYDEN will be out of the office from July 15 to August 3, first on the youth trip and then on vacation. If you have a pastoral emergency during that time, you may contact the Rev. Mike Fulk, 497-9718 or 414-0684.

CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS! It’s that wonderful time of the year again. We are currently planning for our booth at the Johnny Appleseed Festival. It looks like it’s going to be another successful event, both from a fundraiser perspective and, of course, a fellowship one. If anyone is interested in helping in the planning stage of the event, please let Cindy Spice know. We are always looking for help. Mark on your calendars now for September 21 and 22, so you can volunteer a little bit of time during the festival. I understand that for some it may be difficult to be at the festival, so keep in mind that there are several different ways to help out that won’t involve coming to the actual booth. Remember that we always have a great time and don’t forget those fabulous Sizzle Chops!
