Ushers , please note to bring the Offering forward to the Communion table after you have collected it, without waiting to the end of the Offertory; please bring the Offering forward even if the Offertory is special music or a solo.

Thanks to Wendy Finney and the many volunteers who made Vacation Bible School a fantastic experience for the children! Because of your time and talent, the children have received God’s love. 

You are invited to a closing campfire at Buffalo Mountain Camp and Retreat Center on Thursday, July 9 beginning at 7:00 pm.  The fire will be waiting on you at 6:00 PM if you want to come early and walk around the camp.  Expect to hear/share testimonies of how camp has changed the lives of thousands of campers in the past 66 years, sing songs around the fire, worship with Holy Communion once more, and listen as we toll the bell for the last time at this camp site.
