HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY! We extend a very special welcome to the fathers who are worshipping with us today!  Whether you are a young Dad with children at home or an empty-nester with grown children and perhaps grandchildren, may God bless you on this special day and give you strength and grace to be a great blessing to your family!

FAMILY PROMISE OF CLEAR CREEK OFFICE ANGELS: Do you have 2-4 hours each week to help us with light office work – answering phones, stuffing envelopes, scanning documents, or cuddling babies? Each time you volunteer is guaranteed to be different, so you won’t get bored! Please call the Family Promise Day Center at 832.932.3963 to learn more.  

OPEN GYM for kids 3 years through 5th grade begins on June 3rd and will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Friends Center. The cost this year is $4 per child per session. Children under 3 are welcome to attend with a parent at no charge.

REMINDER: The Bible Discussion Group will be meeting immediately following the worship service today.

THE PRIMETIMERS BBQ LUNCH will take place Thursday, June 20th. Join us for a delicious lunch of barbeque brisket, sausage, and smoked chicken with all the trimmings. If you are able, please bring a small dessert to share. Our entertainment will be our talented friend, Cliette Hodges who will be singing praises that will lift your soul. Come and rejoice with us! Primetimers will not meet in July.

DO YOU SHOP ON AMAZON? If so, please consider designating Friendswood Friends Church as your preferred charity through the “Amazon Smile” Program, and Amazon will donate .5% of your total purchase amount to the church at no extra cost to you. You can do this by following this link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/74-1300892 or sign up for Amazon Smile and look for Friendswood Friends Church on the list of eligible charities. Once you have designated a charity, you can access Amazon through the website smile.amazon.com  instead of  amazon.com, and the church will automatically receive your contribution. It’s a simple way to help support the ministries of our church at no cost to you! Contact the church office if you have questions.

PLEASE PRAY for Amanda Dudley, who will be heading out on another mission trip in early July. Amanda will be in the Coffee Café today and next Sunday selling handmade jewelry and Cuban ornaments to raise funds for her trip. You are invited to stop by her table after the service to look at these items, or just to encourage Amanda as she prepares for this time of ministry and learning.

CAN YOU HELP WITH OUR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL PICNIC?  Our VBS program will take place this year on Sunday, June 30th. One of our traditions is to offer a free picnic afterward for anyone who would like to stay. This is a great opportunity for us to meet and welcome the many visitors who will join us for worship that day, but it is a big job to feed 250 people! On the day of the picnic we need help grilling hamburgers and hot dogs in the morning as well as preparing the serving lines; we could also use helpers during the picnic and afterward for clean-up. Table and chair set up will take place during the day on Friday, June 28th, so we could use some volunteers that day as well. If you can help with ANY of these needs, please contact Joyce Byrne at the church office.
