ANNOUNCEMENTS

During the summer months, the adult choirs, youth and children’s ensembles and handbells will be on vacation, as is their tradition. Weekly adult choir rehearsals will begin again on Wednesday August 16th and its first Sunday back will be August 27th. Children's choir and Youth ensemble will start back up on Sunday, September 10th.

We joyfully celebrated Christmas in July on July 16th and collected $286.91 in the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle. The bright Red Kettles had their beginning in 1891 and continue today to help the Salvation Army in its year-round efforts to help those who would otherwise be forgotten. Many thanks for your generosity as our congregation seeks to be a blessing to our community by serving human need in the name of Christ.
