THE FLOWERS ON THE ALTAR TODAY are given by Mike and Anna Barmore in celebration of their 32nd wedding anniversary. 

REMINDER: “SUMMER SUNDAYS” continue through August 13th. Everyone is invited to come enjoy breakfast, which will be served at 9:00 a.m., followed by a brief, intergenerational liturgy of scripture and prayer, then a combined worship service at 10 a.m. If you would like to volunteer to help with one of the breakfasts, please contact Gayle Jircik or the church office. 

OPEN GYM for kids 3 years through 5th grade takes place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Friends Center. The cost is $2 per child per session. Children under 3 are welcome to attend with a parent at no charge.

PRIMETIMERS: come to our Summer Luau Party on Thursday, June 15th at 11:30 a.m. The main dishes will be furnished so if you’re able, please bring a small side or dessert to share. Our program will be really special this month. We’re excited to have Cliette Hodges and a few members of his music team to lead us in praise and worship songs. He serves as the Minister of Music at the Greater Life Church in Webster and is a good friend of our Kay Griffin. Come and have your spirits lifted with song and fellowship. 

PLEASE PRAY for our students, counselors and drivers who are traveling to Camp Quaker Haven – a total of 51 people! Our Senior High students are finishing up camp today and will head back tomorrow; our Junior High students leave this afternoon to begin their time at camp. Please pray for safe travel, and that the time at camp would be a life-changing experience of drawing closer to God and to one another for each of our students. Also, please pray for our interim youth pastor, Jason Porterfield, who is the main speaker for Junior High Camp.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Our next week to host Family Promise will be July 9th-16th. Please plan to get involved by volunteering to help provide food for our guests and/or spend a night at the church. Watch for more information soon about how to sign up online. You can also contact our coordinators, Desiree Trevino and Beth Skeeter, for information about volunteering.

LADIES:  Please join us this Wednesday, June 14th at 6:30 p.m. for the Women’s Ministry Summer Craft Night! We will be painting a wooden Texas door hanger.
