  8.   SUMMER MISSION  -  We are continuing to collect voluntary donations for the food distribution van at Eastern Service Workers Association.  This van is very old and requires lots of maintenance, but is crucial to ESWA as it delivers emergency food to about 60 low income working families each week.  Please use the small brown envelope in the chair rack to make your donation to this very worthy project.  Our minimum goal is to collect $5,000 with a stretch goal of $10,000 or more.

  9.   DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS our Chancel Choir takes a well-deserved break.  This opens the opportunity for others to share their talents during the worship services.  If you are interested in participating as a singer or instrumentalist, as a soloist or as part of a group, please see organist Pat Korenkiewicz or email her at patkoren@yahoo.com.

10.  VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL registration forms are available in the upper Narthex and on the church website for children in PreK (those who are 4 years old by January 1, 2019) through 5th grade.  Bible lessons, games, music and crafts with the theme “ROAR” will help children discover how Life is Wild...God is Good!  The deadline for registration is July 10th.  Many adult and teen volunteers are needed to make this a special time for all.  Please see Gayl Galen in the CCE office to be part of the adventure!
