WE WELCOME the Rev. Art Hadley as our Celebrant and Preacher this morning and pray for God’s blessing upon his proclamation of the Word and administering of the sacrament.
THIS IS CHURCH CLEANING WEEK.
FATHER LAYDEN will be out of the office until August 6. If you have a pastoral emergency during that time, you may contact the Rev. Mike Fulk, 497-9718 or 414-0684.
TICKETS FOR THE TINCAPS GAME on Saturday, August 3, were ordered last week. If anyone who did not sign up is interested in attending, please contact Marilyn Rafter at 493-7140 and she will see if extra tickets are available.
PRAYER NIGHT will be held at 7:00 p.m. on August 8. The first Thursday of each month we have a prayer night during which we discuss those on the prayer list and offer prayers for the church. Anyone may join us. In August it will be the second Thursday of the month due to Father Layden’s vacation.
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!
FOOD BANK We can tell school is out as we have been busier than usual in the food pantry so far this month. We appreciate and give thanks for all who buy an extra item for the food pantry while shopping for their own families. We are in need of condiments, chicken & beef broth, peanut butter, laundry soap, face soap, dish soap paper towel and toilet paper.
