Joys and Concerns for Prayer:

  • Medical Healing in our church family: 
        •  Dick – recovering from a medical procedure
          • Corey R. – ongoing health problems
          • Paul S. – (Birney’s son) recovering from an accident
  • The War in Ukraine 
  • The political and social divisions we face as a nation
  • That God will keep using us to help those who are struggling to meet their needs during these times of soaring prices and high stress


  • Food Pantry: God continues to bless others because of your generosity! 
    • Needs this week: fresh produce, cereal, milk, and eggs. 
    •  Consider driving for deliveries. We need more people to share this work. Please consider whether you might be able to give 15-20 minutes after service or any time that’s convenient for you. 

Our church Street Team will be launching soon. The charge of the Street Team is to walk the neighborhood and meet our neighbors. They will listen to our neighbors’ hopes and concerns, share information about our church and events, and pray with and for the community. The team will do walks at least twice a month, but they can go whenever members can go. We are planning our first walk this Saturday, July 23. If you can give us one hour of your time between 11:00 and 1:00, it will be a blessing. If you are interested in being a part of this effort to get to know our neighbors, see Pastor Scott or Melissa. 

Please help with our ongoing work to paint the Fellowship Hall. There is a lot of trim work and second coats to apply to different spots. If you can give some time on a Wednesday evening or Saturday morning to help, see Dick or Pastor Scott.
