CONGRATULATIONS to Josiah and Courtney (Helm) Brown, who were married on Saturday, June 17th in Chandler, Oklahoma. Josiah and Courtney will arrive in Friendswood later this week, when Josiah will begin serving as our pastor of student ministries. Please pray for them as they adjust to married life and begin the process of settling into life and ministry here in Friendswood! Also, please join us in helping to make them feel welcome during this time of transition.
MINISTRY CONFERENCE for the Friends churches in Mid America will take place from July 20th-23rd at Barclay College in Haviland, Kansas. This year’s theme is “The Way in the Wilderness”. The cost of $120 includes lodging, meals and the program. Pick up a brochure from the kiosk for more information. You can register online at efcmaym.org.
SUMMER OFFICE SCHEDULE: In order to save on costs over the summer months, the church office will be closed on the following Thursdays: July 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th and August 3rd & 10th. We’ll be back to our regular schedule for the start of the school year.
YOU ARE INVITED to join us for a “VBS picnic” immediately following the worship service on Sunday, July 2nd. There is no charge for the meal and no need to sign up – just plan to join us for a simple meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, chips & dessert and help us to welcome the visitors who will be here for the VBS program. Offerings to offset the cost of the meal will be accepted.
CAN YOU HELP? We need a few volunteers to help with our VBS picnic. Table set up will take place on Thursday, June 29th at 7 p.m. If you have a few minutes to help out with that, it would be greatly appreciated. OR, we could use a few volunteers the morning of the picnic (9 a.m. on July 2nd) to help set up the serving tables. We’ll finish up in time for you to go over for the service at 10 a.m. If you are willing to help with either of these needs, Joyce Byrne will have a signup sheet available in the foyer today or you may contact her at 281-4827821 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your help with this important time of making connections with our community!
FAMILY PROMISE: Our next week to host guests from Family Promise will be July 9th-16th! We need lots of volunteers to help make this ministry a success. If you can provide part of the evening meal for one of these dates, please sign up online.

We also need 2 people to sleep at the church each night during our host week. If you have questions or prefer not to sign up online, please contact Beth Skeeter or Desiree Trevino.
