Back by popular demand! Katy Mohabir will give another presentation about her
Bolivian Adventure once again on Sunday, August 3rd, downstairs immediately following worship. So if you haven’t had a chance to hear all about it, maybe this additional opportunity will work for your schedule! Tell your friends and come join the fellowship!
Many, many thanks to all who participated in the 2014 Bazaar. As we all know, a LOT of work goes into collecting, planning, setting up, organizing, cooking/baking/salad making, cleaning, and then pulling the whole thing off on that big day (and then the clean-up afterwards!). Good job well done again. Watch for a report of all those efforts soon. The quilt drawing as won by Bill Meyer.
Come Shop after Church! There are always items left for sale following the Church Bazaar that may be of interest to you. So grab a cup of coffee after worship today and head down to the Plymouth Room to peruse and purchase all of the good deals! Thank you for your support.
Barb Grover has done it again (along with everything else)!! She has written another book; its title is, “Postcard History Series

A “Must Read” – Copies of our recently-revised Safe Church Policy and Conditional Attendance Agreement are available at the back of the sanctuary or from the Church office. Everyone is encouraged to familiarize yourself with these new documents. –Church Council
