Announcements for Sunday, July 30



No, we don’t look like crackpots on a holy pilgrimage. Yes, we advertise on the lawn so that our neighbors know we pray for them… and they can join us! Have more questions? Prayer walkers are waiting outside the Welcome Center after worship service to talk.


Now, Please – A major project (hours and hours) of computerizing all of our titles has been completed! The next step is to inventory the actual books against this list. If you have an overdue book (many go back 2-4 years or more) propping up a table leg or languishing on your bookshelf, please return it to the library by next week. We don’t care how long you have had it – total amnesty, no questions asked!


Please return your clean, VBS shirt to the Welcome Center. Thanks!


Save the date! WEI’s 16th Annual Harambee Gala is September 30. Help women and their families in Kenya escape poverty through the life-giving gift of water. Tickets on sale now:
