Hope you all are staying cool in the midst of this extremely hot weather!
Continue to pray for all of those who are packing, moving, and transitioning to new places this summer. The Matlacks will be moving this weekend, and the Bustetters, Stephanie Wilks, and the Angles will be moving toward the end of July and into August. Please remember them in your prayers – for safety, peace, and a place of worship in their future homes.

There are several kids sippy cups accumulating in the kitchen. For the next two weeks, there will be a box labeled “Lost and Found” in Fellowship Hall, which will have the sippy cups, as well as other miscellaneous homeless items. Please check out the box and retrieve any items that you think might be yours! Items in the box will either be donated or thrown away by the end of July. Thank you for your help with this!
Looking forward to worshiping with you on Sunday!
