A big thank you to Jessica Deeter for a truly wonderful crochet class! We will definitely be doing this again, as all the participants had a great time and felt they learned something new.

"Springing Into Summer" Potluck

Last Sunday's celebration of the season was full of fun, friends, and fabulous food. Once again, our CG cooks showed their talents by providing many delicious treats! It is always a blessing to be able to gather in fellowship as a church family and to take time to visit with friends both old and new.

Youth Group News

We had a great time last week on our trip to Columbiana. We hid our painted rocks for others to find, after we took some time to pray for the people who will be finding them. Then we celebrated the end of the school year with a trip to Orange Leaf for frozen yogurt, followed by fun and games outside at Firestone Farms. Regular Youth Group will resume in the fall, but we will still get together throughout the summer. Events will be scheduled soon, including our usual trip to the Snyder's for swimming and s'mores!

Coat & Clothing Drive

Ongoing Mission Opportunity
Are you celebrating an anniversary with the bag of clothes in your room or the old coats in your trunk? Don't let another week...or year go by! Drop them off here, any time throughout the year. Take them to the storage room by the Cafe or up to the Green Room. Collection will continue right up until our October Giveaway Day!

For I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink;
I was a stranger and you took me in;
I was naked and you clothed me;
I was sick and you visited me.
I was in prison and you came to me.

.....When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,
you were doing it to me.

Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
What can YOU do?
