Church Council will have a special called meeting on Thursday, August 4 at 6:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall for the purpose of determining whether to offer the parsonage for rent and related issues.  Anyone is invited to attend the meeting and have a voice to share their thoughts.  Voting on the issues is limited to Church Council members.

Remember to pray for the Czech Mission Team of our Johnson City District that includes five of our church members — Jennifer and Steven Skaggs (team leaders), Adam Stewart, and Amanda and Josh Franklin; as well as Cameron Bawgus and Rachel Hodge.  From July 22 to August 1, they will be in mission with the people of Protivin in the Czech Republic.  Through a sports/baseball camp and an English language camp, they will share the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ in a country that is overwhelmingly atheistic.  Please hold them in your prayers daily, as well as those persons they will encounter.

Our Czech Mission Team members have purchased T-shirts and hats for the Czech people as keepsakes, and have encountered an unexpected field rental fee.  To assist financially with the expenses, you can give a special offering payable to Bluff City UMC with “Czech Mission” in the memo line.

You are invited to cluster singing at Edgefield UMC on Sunday, July 31 at 6:00 PM.  Hot dogs and watermelon will be served following the service.  Come and invite your friends.

Phone Tree update.  We now have a second phone line in place to be dedicated for use with our fax machine and Phone Tree.  We have discovered, however, that we have to rebuild the database for Phone Tree to operate.  If you are willing to come into the church office and type in names and numbers, please let Dan or Rebecca know.

We are trying to collect information for the ETSU Wesley Foundation.  If you are a current student at ETSU, please turn in your information (name, address, e-mail address and cell phone number) to the church office.

Czech Mission Team

We are excited that 5 of our church members — Jennifer and Steven Skaggs, Amanda and Josh Franklin, and Adam Stewart — are part of a Johnson City District mission team going to the Czech Republic on July 22.  Please hold them in your prayers, as well as the people they will encounter.
