NEWSLETTER: Newsletter items are due on August 9th.
SPECIAL DONATION FOR BENJAMIN REED: A special donation is being collected to assist with Benjamin Reed’s hospital bills.
THE CLIPPER CHALLENGE: We have an exciting opportunity for you to participate in- “The Clipper Challenge”. Session has approved the purchase of materials that will allow us to video tape and live stream worship services on a continuing basis. Some memorial money is being used but the remainder of the cost will hopefully be raised with this challenge. We need to raise $1100 by the beginning of August.
The challenge is easy- when the money is finally raised, Pastor Scott will receive his first hair cut since the shutdown started. If you make a donation of $50 or more your name will be entered in a drawing to choose the style of haircut Pastor Scott will receive!
Let us have mercy on him and try to make this challenge a quick one! Donations may be dropped off at church during business hours or look for the blue box during worship service. Thank you!
MOWING VOLUNTEERS: Building and grounds are currently looking for volunteers to mow the church’s lawn in August. The last weekend is still availibleTo sign up please call Ken Maurer
