10.  DRIVERS NEEDED! Some of our elderly members as well as attendees from Phillips Village are in need of a ride to church on Sunday mornings, or have need for occasional transportation to doctor appointments.  If you can help, please contact the church office.

11.   SUMMER MISSION:  Our project this summer is to help Williamson Come-Unity Center pay off the balance on their mortgage, which will enable them to serve even more deserving people in Wayne County and will put them in a sounder financial position.  If we achieve our goal of $9000, they will be able to pay off the entire mortgage!  Please prayerfully consider making a generous contribution using the small envelopes in the chair racks.

12.   LETTER TO THE CONGREGATION: Copies of the Session’s letter to the congregation which was read in the service on May 20th are available in the church office for those who are interested.  If you have either joys or concerns regarding our church, we invite you to speak with any Session member, Pastor Larry, or Rev. Eileen.  Thank you!

13.   FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, as in the past few years, will not be mailed out for the 2nd quarter of the year in order to save on postage.  Anyone who would like to receive a statement or has a question about their year-to-date gifts is welcome to contact Georgia in the church office, and a statement will be promptly supplied.  Third quarter statements will be sent out at the end of September and, as always, at year-end.

14.   OFFICE SUMMER HOURS have begun.  The church office will be open most weekdays from 9:00 A.M. until Noon. The ministers and/or one of the secretaries will be available at other times as well, but on a more flexible schedule that is not as predictable.  Please remember to call ahead to arrange for clerical work or before stopping in to ensure someone is available to help you.
