VBS News

Thank you to all who attended the volunteer meeting last Sunday! We are on the right track to have a spectacular journey through Abundance Orchard, where faith grows and hungry people are fed! Registration forms are on the VBS table, our jars (painted long ago by Martha Centofanti) are out in the Great Room, and the donation supply board will go up soon. If you would like to get involved but aren't sure how, talk to Jen Lynch. Volunteers and participants always welcome! Invite your friends and family!

Garden News

The Garden is now on Summer Break. Our Garden age kids will remain in Worship. Activity pages will be available on the table by the Sanctuary doors. Nursery will be available for little ones through three years old.

Youth Group News

Swim Party at the Snyder's, Wednesday, June 20, 6-8pm This event is for youth entering 5th grade and up! Wear your swimsuit, bring a towel and a snack to share. (Date subject to change due to weather and baseball playoffs.)

Youth Parents - Watch for an email about your summer schedules soon. In order to plan events that work for as many people as possible, we will be asking you to send in dates when you know your family will be busy. We know that we can't work around everything, and sometimes plans are made last minute, but any information will help! Some events will be open to the incoming 5th graders, and some will be only for last year's crop of kids.

Coat & Clothing Drive

Ongoing Mission Opportunity

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
